They could be warped... and long road trips or hard braking recently will do it...

Since you replaced them last summer, check the spec's and see if they can be turned...

Or buy a new set

My girlfriends car has the same problem right now. I'm pretty sure its due to warped rotors, I would check that Dustin.

My g/f car did that too. I think a g/f thing, they warp rotors like they are going out of style. Her's were warped so bad I could feel it with my hand.

Brake job was also recent, so I just did a rotor swap as the pads have barely been broken in.

Midas did those, I think they put economy rotors on or something. Didn't even bother calling them to warrenty it, just coughed up the $60 for 2 new rotors and everything is fixed.

Yeah shes probably due to have the brakes changed, its been like 4 years since they have been. Dustin one thing that it could have caused the warped rotors is getting mud or rock in there.

mud or rocks will not warp a rotor. the only thing that warps brake rotors is heat, and lots of it!
