4x4 slight pulse while breaking?

Good evening all... Just got a 70th anniversary v6 4x4 this past weekend. After driving to and from work this past week and a few errands this weekend, i have just under 200 miles on my Jeep. I absolutely love the truck but think something may be wrong.

I have noticed that sometimes when braking normally, there is a slight pulse in the brake pedal and the steering wheel shakes slightly... I am wondering if this is due to the car being new and the brakes needing to be broken in, or if this is something i should go to the dealer to check out...

Has anyone else experienced this? Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Justin

I felt this on one of the cars I test drove. Most likely a warped rotor. Braking should be smooth from the start.

I felt it on a test drive and I also had this on my new Jeep when I first drove it...but it seemed to go away within about 500 miles or so.

Think brakes are covered under warranty for the first 12K miles so you might want to give it a bit of time.

A warbed rotor with less than 200 miles? It is gettting a little better... I think ill wait until 500mi or sothen see if its completely gone... regardless when I get my 1st oil change I'm having them check it too.
