2003 Buick Rendezvous Question: Brakes Grind
My car has an intermittent problem, sometimes when I hit my brakes I get grinding and it is difficult to push the pedal all the way down, I have to let go of the brakes and press the pedal again. I just had a brake job and replaced the rotors. I have taken it to 2 garages and they can't duplicate the problem. There are no error codes or warning lights just the grinding and the pedal locking. - Visitor
You DEFINITELY have a brake problem because it happens when you apply the brakes and you said that you recently had work performed on your brakes. Take it back to the shop who did the brake job,. They should stand behind their work, which was sub-standard or they got some defective parts. - dandd

I have the same problem and Goodyear quoted me $1200 for something but I believe it's ABS related because it happens every time I start the car but not every time I break, and it goes away AFTER my ABS warning light comes on, and the warning chime goes off. Then it brakes fine - Ca2jarman
