Brakes have been replaced three times, and the problem still exists, repair work, I.e. pads, rotors, have been done. Dealer cannot duplicate the problem. Consumer states vehicle pulls to the side when brakes are applied, the pedal did not feel right from day one, on the first dealer visit the right front assembly, caliper, pads, rotors, were replaced due to being loose and pads had completely wore down and were squeaking, at 16000 miles this problem repeated itself, on 28-Sep-98 vehicle was involved in an accident, one person was injured and the driver air bag did not deploy when it should have.
