Do not discount uneven torquing or over tightening of the lug nuts (by the dealer, upon tire rotation).
I dunno, but I never gave the dealer not one chance at all for them to touch my tires for rotation. I did all the rotations myself (twice now, prior to each OCIs visits, and I following the recommended Mazda6 Manual cross rotation pattern).
I have now 11,181mi as of this writing. I do drive this 6MT spiritedly (up to 85-90mph bursts) on fwys mostly for work commute and brake hard when needed, the most recent..this morning's work drive (although I brake pulse/pump mostly, a habit of mine to give some cooling for the brake rotors and to brake flash the car behind me, some fair warning for any tail gaters..).
Coincidence perhaps..call me lucky, I dunno...but I NEVER had any vibrating brake pedal nor any warping signs, to date (knock on wood).
Btw, I have a 1/2 drive torque wrench, a breaker bar and a 6pt 21mm socket..always at the ready inside the trunk (I bring it with me, everytime). Torque settings is at 85lbs evenly, on all lugs and lock nuts.
