Vehicle does not slow down when coming to a stop. Problem is intermittent. Sometimes it will go a month this way. Consumer has to brake really hard to get vehicle to stop, and it is wearing down the brakes. Took vehicle dealer, and they put a black box on vehicle. Problem still has not been corrected.

Brakes chatter when vehicle goes over 50mph or makes a sudden stop. Front disc rotors wore out of round, and dealer had to adjust front disc brakes by resurfacing them. 2 weeks later, after the repairs shattering came back. When problem returned consumer contacted dealer, and was told "that was the way anti lock brake system was supposed to work. Consumer states this still occurs.
