Re: Turning UFO's
The intermittent pulsing is strange. When I bought my car with 11K miles, I
occasionally had the steering wheel pulse from side to side when I hit the
brakes on an exit ramp after a long freeway run. However, this went away
and has never repeated in the last 5 years.
'91 200Q UFOs have 80K on rotors, 20K on pads.
