The right front tire would seem to have the wobbly sound and feel after going 15 miles an hour. I believe this problem is the same recall of 11/14/2003 and now happening to my 2006 Fx35 Infiniti SUV where the service brakes, hydraulic foundation component:disc;caliper. The front brake caliper mounting bolts may not be adequately tightened, this could result in one or both of the caliper mounting bolts loosening. If this occurs, it would allow the caliper to rotate or separate from its mounting bracket. This could cause the brake to fail, reducing the vehicle's ability to stop, it could also damage the wheel, causing the tire to go flat. Either one of these conditions could result in a crash.

It used to be that the first initial brake driving in a 15-20 mph, that my vehicle makes a rattling noise from the front tires, now it does it for the first 2 to 3 braking pattern. I am just worried that after my warranty expires and the same problem arises, the dealer or the manufacturer won't have anything to do with the damages it might cause. I have taken my vehicle to the dealer several times to correct the braking problem it creates. A couple of months after the service, the same problem occur. The dealer keeps giving me analogies about a wine glass, water on your finger tips and running them over the tip of the glass. . . . What has that got to do with the braking system of the car! after 3 months leasing the vehicle, the problem started to show but was fixed. The second incident was the worst. Wherein even backing up made the noise like the wheel would separate. This was remedied when the caliper was recalled. The third time I took the vehicle, the mechanic told me that it was the abs that makes the noise. I understand that abs applies in a sudden brake. But this whole incident happens even driving at 10-15 mph. Although, every couple of months, I still have to take my SUV back to the dealer due to the same rattling noise. The service manager keeps on insisting that this is normal. This is not normal in any circumstance because it does not do to my friends vehicle, which has the same year and model as I have. Not to mention, when I took the vehicle for a 30,000 miles service. My regular mechanic for my other car noticed, that the cabin filter was missing. He also mentioned that the vehicle as if has not been serviced at all due to oil being so dirty.
