Same problem for me, just had rotors resurfaced. No more problem, and this was after about 75,000 miles.
replaced rotors and took away the pulsing had to purschase higher grade pads to reduce how quickly the brakes needed to be changed

I had replaced my rotors at about 35,000 miles. Around 50,000 + or even earlier I started to feel a pulsing in the brake pedal. The rotors looked ok, but I did not check them for run out. At about 60,000 it got very bad and I replaced the rotors with Bendix rotors and replaced the brake pads. Now braking is smooth.
have had the front brakes done a few times. A year ago the rotors resurfaced and now it is pulsating again when braking.
