    Sounds like the brake rotors are warped or has hot spots and will need to be inspected by a repair shop www.repairpal.com/directory and you can check repair prices here www.repairpal.com/estimator

    It's probably the front rotors one is warped or both are.I had the same problem cleared up with new rotors..They (the rotors) get hot and they do wrap. could also be your breaks..check that and the brake cylinder it could be sticking.
