problem #1

  • 5,000 miles
While driving at any speed the vehicle hesitated when the brake pedal was pressed. The dealer examined the vehicle twice and replaced the front pads and found the rear calipers were warped. Due to the warped calipers, the rear pads can not be replaced with out new calipers.
