same as above
Istarted to feel pulsation in the pedal sometimes little and some times really bad, I asked to my mechanic friend and he recomended to replace both rotors and pads which I did and all of that pulsing is now in the past yet i still to replace the rear drums and shoes which I can do nine months or so latter that I knew when I told to my friend how the condition of everything was, I did measure the drums and shoes linings so I have a break before i have to do that.
same problem, doesn't matter, what mileage. it's Gm thing.

I bought my 2002 cavalier brand new. Within the first 2 years my car was jerking when I came to a stop. My breaks went bad. I have had 4 break jobs done in the 9 years that I have had my cavalier.
