2014 Grand Cherokee brakes/rotors

Hi everyone
The brakes on my 2014 Limited with only 16,000 kilometres ( less than 10,000 miles) at times pulsate when braking at lower speeds. They seem to be grabbing and letting go, not smooth. Not consistent yet, but is happening. This can't be common for such a new vehicle? Anyone experiencing this? Could it be the rotors already and would this be covered under warranty?
Any thoughts or comments?
Frank

I had to have one of my front rotors/calipers replaced due to dragging and overheating. It would get really bad after driving for about 10 minutes. Steering wheel shaking, warped feel, terrible MPG.
My dealership Goodwill warrantied it (2014, 1 yr and 3 months old). Took several trips and a few calls/emails for them to do anything.

Sounds like warped rotors, and that can happen at low miles if the brakes have been overheated (hard braking followed by not moving with your foot on the brake can overheat the rotors), and/or excessive torque on the wheel nuts. I torque my wheel nuts to 110 ft-lbs. Some shops tighten them with an impact until the gun won't turn any more, and some people tighten them by hand with far too much force.

Once the rotors are warped the only solution is to have them turned or replace them.

I could be wrong, but I believe brake parts are covered until 12k miles.

Thanks for the replies. I will have to take it in to the dealer. Hopefully will be covered still!

FrankAN,

Brake pads and rotors carry a 1 year, 20,000km (whichever comes first) warranty in Canada. Brake calipers, if defective are covered under the 3 year, 60,000km basic warranty. Be sure to speak with the Service Manager at your Jeep dealer.
