I began to have a pulsation when I started to brake at 90,000 miles. I made the logical decision to have my brakes replaced (rotors and calipers as well), still no avail.

I have replaced both rotors and rubber brake hoses , rotors 3 times in the last 64,000 miles there should definitely be a recall on the issue

problem with shuddering on use of brakes at about 40mph. Replaced brake pads/ rotors... Fine at first, slowly started having the same issue, getting much worse with time. No driving at slow pace 5-34 mph without shaking. So annoying!

Brakes pulsating during normal braking when decelerating between 45 mph and up. Pulsating subsides when deceleration reaches 30 mph. Solution was to turn up stereo to 80 percent of capacity and pretend I'm driving off road... How do I really iron out my wrinkled stops??

Pulsation affects the entire vehicle to a noticeable extent. Coming to a smooth stop is now nearly impossible.
