it?

More than likely the rotors are warped.

In my experience, if rust exists on the rotor where the pad touch,
then the pads aren't touching. The means the rotor could be a little
'warped' or calipers are 'hung up' both of which can give that
pulsating feeling, and greatly effect your ablity to stop.

Is the rush where the pad and rotor meet?

later,

Yea if he drove it even for a mile or two, that would be enough time to wipe
rust off the rotor surface (unless SEVERLY DEEPLY rusted)....
If there is still rust in places, then the rotors are warped.

What would cause rotors to warp while in storage?
