I've had the brakes on my '05 RSX replaced and also checked regularly, and they're said to be just fine. Under normal driving conditions and use, they function normally. However, in the rare instances where I have to apply them a bit more forcefully or "slam" on the brakes, they make a terrible scraping/grinding feeling and sound and do not seem to work as effectively as they should. This is especially true if they're wet from rain or if the car is on a steep decline. It concerns me that they're getting the OK when they're checked out but continue to function this way when they're wet, forcefully applied, or on a decline. Someone suggested the sound/feeling I'm experiencing could be the antilock brake mechanism. Is this your experience with ALB??

Thanks in advance for any feedback/insight! :beerchug:

The ABS should sound like clicking and you should feel real strong firm pulses under your foot. It actually sounds like you may be due for fresh pads and possibly rotors.
