We have to change our front brakes alot. You can see the black brake dust on the front wheels all the time. Now the rotors are needing replaced.

I just had front brakes and rotors replaced because of pulsations. Now car is leaking what appears to be oil from front toward passenger side

This causes my car to shake/rumble when on gas, noticed it is making my breaks stick down a little longer than they should be. I've had my rotors replaced 3x in the last year. Recommend having tech check your alignment too if this is the case - the right side of my car seems to be wearing on this faster than the left.

I have replaced the rotors and brakes at least 3 times. And this still happens, the vibrations while breaking.
