    My brakes have been grabing hard and then releasing. I notice it more when I brake slowly. Someone said my rotors might be warped. Has anyone had this problem and what did you do to solve it? If I have to replace them would I be better off with aftermarket rotors or just sticking with OEM?

    Is this happening in a fast pulsing way, or intermitently?

    Your rotors are warped. OEM is a good replacement, but others will chime in with some options to consider. :)

    Replaceing the rotors is as easy as chngeing the oil. :thumbsup:
