Brake Pedal Pulsation on Mitsubishi Galant

A brake pedal pulsation may be noted on brake apply. This is commonly caused by warping of the front brake rotors. Our technicians remind us that re-machining (turning) the rotors can correct this issue but the repair may last only a short time as the thinner rotors would be even more prone to warping. Replacement of faulty rotors with high quality parts is often the best option in these situations.

Braking causes steering column and car to shudder. Turned rotor and was smooth again but problem came back within 20k miles. After turning rotors twice I'm planning to replace rotors this time and hope it is permanent fix.
