Brakes pulsing

My '02 Overland 15K miles has a spot on the front rotors that grabs when the brakes are applied, causing a sensation of pulsing of the brakes. No pedal or steering wheel vibration is felt. My brake shop said that my rotors were probably rusted one time and that the spot that was protected from the rust is working better than the rest of the rotor. I can see the outline of the brake pad on one of my front rotors. Question is what to do about this. My brake shop wants $85.00 to resurface the rotors on the vehicle.

Will this problem correct itself with more use of the brakes? Since it's used for around town travel it does not get many miles of use.

The rotors are most likely warped. Grand's will do that every 15,000 or so. You can go to a local parts store, and buy brand new rotors for about $40 each. I had the same problem, and this solved my problem.

Bill:
Look in the FAQ section (third row from the top of this forum) there is a post about your problem.
