Oldsmobile Alero Front Brake Rotor Wear Can Cause Pulsations

(17 reports)

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians often recommend replacement of the front rotors and brake pads as the best option to correct this condition.

My breaks cause a pulsating feeling when I step on them, shifting my car slightly to the right. I had the dealerships mechanic look at my breaks. He informed me that I have a rust build up on my roters, which is causing this feeling, and that my roters would need replaced. . -
