Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians tell us this condition is best corrected by replacement of the front rotors and brake pads.

    I have had to put on 3 sets of rotors in the last 25,000 miles (1 year, nearly all freeway miles). They warped quickly. Even upgrading to slotted and drilled rotors, they get red hot quickly. I don't ride the brake and the shops claim there is nothing wrong.
