1996 993 Brake Problem

Brakes

Vehicle Information: Model: 993 Coupe; Year: 1996; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 50000;

Hi Joel,When I first purchased this car 3.5 years ago, it had fresh rotors/pads on the front. Within 2 months, I had a brake vibration up front(lots of heavy braking during the demo rides for my friends). When applying the brake slightly, you'd get the vibration but after fully applying them, it went away. I figured that I cooked the rotors and lived with the problem for awhile and then I replaced the rotors. Initially, that fixed the problem but the exact same problem has returned after only 3,000 miles with very little heavy brake use. It seems that something is causing the rotors the warp prematurely but no one seems to be able to figure it out. I suspect that the dealer who sold it to me may have known something was up and that is the reason that it had fresh pads/rotors on as it sat on the lot. Do you have any ideas?
