After only 12,000 km, on the car, the car was experiencing uneven shuddering braking. I took off the wheels and checked the rotors to find that the inside pads where not even touching the disks. The inside of the disk was completely rusted out. I had to replace the disks and pads as well as free up the calipers and re-grease them.

I have since talked to mechanics about this problem and they say that the car was never properly PDI'ed. If the dealer actually did something for the PDI charge, this problem may have been avoided.
