Anyone with a 2005 G35x having front brake problems?

At 6,000 miles I started noticing a grinding sound as I came to a stop and after a while I could look thru the wheels and could see that the front rotors were scored. In addition I am getting a loud squealing from all 4 wheels. I took it to the dealer and they had to resurface the front rotors. Within 2 weeks, the brakes again started the grinding when coming to a stop. I took it back to the dealer again and this time they replaced the front brakes and rotors. After another 1,000 miles the same thing is happening again and you can see that the new rotors are already scored again and I am getting the grinding when I come to a stop. I called the service manager to discuss the problems and he asked me to stop by and take him for a ride to show him what the problems were. After taking the service manager for a ride in my car he acknowledge that there is still a problem but he doesn't know what to do to fix it. He also could see that the new rotors were already scored and would need to be replaced again. He told me to call Infinit Consumer Affairs to see what to do next. After getting a little bit of a run around, Infiniti is going to send a DTS (Divisional Technical Specialist) to look at my car to try an solve the problem.

It seems to me if the same thing has happened with 2 sets of brakes and rotors there might be a defect in the brakes. I know they extended the brake warranty to 36,000 miles on the 2003 & 2004 models, but they haven't yet done it for the 2005 models. It is very disappointing that this problem keeps happening on a $35K car. I now have over 9,000 miles on the car and as of now my brake warranty expires in less than 3,000 miles and they've yet to fix the problem. If anyone else is experiencing the same problem, please let me know.

Also, as of right now until the Infiniti rep inspects the car I am driving the car with rotors that have grooves it them are not smooth. In fact, I doubt that the car would pass inspection in NY State with the rotors the way they are.

We have an '04 and have not noticed a problem other than the fact that they are extremely sensative.
