A brake pulsation or steering wheel vibration may be noted when braking, especially at highway speeds. Our technicians tell us that replacing the front brake backing plates, resurfacing or replacing the front brake rotors, and inspecting the front brake pads and caliper hardware and replacing as necessary will generally correct this concern.

Same problem as others have stated. The dealer wants me to spend $650 to upgrade to new backing plates and new rotors. Should this be covered as a recall/technical service bulletin?

at about 18000 miles, felt pulsating brake pedal when braking normally at any speed, resulting jerky stops. resufacing the rotors costs $150/each. I have had many other non-infiniti cars but never experienced such brake problems.
