Go Kart Champion
(fords true, but Kia's?)
LOL, he had me 'till Kia's! McQueen, you're right on, I take it all with a grain of salt.
Modshack, those are very important questions that I failed to answer in my post. I bought the GTI used 2 months ago, with 10k miles on it, certified warranty. The pads are Bosch and appeared to be new. The rotors aren't great looking.
In your opinion (Modshack), should I push the dealer to try to figure out what's wrong with them? My next step would be stoptech pads, metal bushings, and either have the rotors turned or replace them.
