Hi everyone,

A great first step is getting your concern documented and inspected at your dealership. Additionally, I can assist by getting your case into the hands of your regional customer service managers. Send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name; I'll take care of the rest.

"When Advance Trac performs a normal system self-check,some drivers may notice a slight movement of the brake,and/or a rumble/grunting,or grinding noise after startup and when driving off."

It sounds horrendous and was about to go to see about it untill I read that,its identical everytime so thats consistant with a self check routine.Anyway that might be what your hearing as well.
Thanks for the great suggestion, spektrum2!
