Vehicle vibrates and pulsates every time you apply the brakes while driving at speeds above 50 mph- vibrations are felt throughout the vehicle and the steering wheel. On March 11th; Subaru dealership technicians took a look at the problem and drove the vehicle and confirmed the steering wheel vibrations while braking on speeds above 50 mph, they also found all brakes at 7mm and front rotors with added material to it measuring above 0.0008" - technicians recommended a simple resurface of rotors (charged at owners expense) or to wait until the condition worsen "?" (affecting other suspension, steering or brakes components) in order to repair the vehicle using the warranty. Currently my car has 22,345 and it already continues to pulsate every time I apply the brakes at speeds well above 50 mph. Nothing was say about the brake pads conditions or quality. I did noted on many Subaru forums online that many Subaru owners have experience this issue but it seems that no one has reported such issues to the NHTSA.
