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.

    after getting brake turned and replaced twice - still have the problem - went back to the dealer and they replaced the steering column , if you have brakes vibrating and clanking issues , it is the steering column that needs to be replaced… tell the dealer to replaced it under warranty
