My brakes pulsate when applying. I'm having brake failure much to soon for my driving and past experience with new cars. The dealer is saying that the rotors are warped and that it's not covered under warranty. However, I brake very little, since most of my 86 mi. Daily commute is intersate; I am extremely easy on a brake when braking; I've never slammed the brake; past experience with many new cars has never resulted in warped brakes, in fact, my 1992 Lumina euro had 60K before front pads were needed and 90K before rear pads... rotors were (and are) still okay. Lastly, I checked the investigations database and found that the '98 Monte Carlo has a "degraded braking performance". I wondered if the Lumina brakes were the same as the monte?

When driving in the rain, the breaks require a great deal more pedal pressure to stop the car in the rain.
