I do not think the pulsation is warped brakes, at least not in my car.

After 5 hours at the dealership, service B done and brakes and rotors replaced, covered by warranty.

Service tech said the 2nd warranty person he talked to still said not covered, but he says the main warranty person is on leave. He'll take care of it.

Had a quick chat, expressing my concerns with the rotors. He said his GLK's rotors had to be replaced at 70K, and he had the same issues I'm having with the replacement. Hopefully the new rotors I got aren't bad.

My old mechanic insisted that the problem is usually not the rotors but the brake pads which cause the rotor to wear unevenly. I'm wondering if some after-market brake pads, like Akebono, might be called for? I used those on an older car I towed with, with great success. Would these void the warranty, I wonder? It might be cheaper to get them installed than OEM brakes at a dealer.
