: the contact stated while driving at higher speeds the vehicle pulsated and under panic braking the front driver side brake locked. The vehicle has been to the dealer on five occasions for this problem where the dealer, on the last visit, replaced the front rotors and the rear drums. After 4000 miles the problem recurred. The dealer has been alerted. The front calipers froze and caused the rotors to overheat. Updated 07/07/06.
