Complaint - Service Brakes

3 WEEKS AGO, THE FRONT BRAKES ON MY '13 F150 BEGAN VIBRATING FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME AT SLOWER SPEEDS AND DID NOT FEEL LIKE THEY WERE RELEASING AT ALL AFTER BRAKING. THIS OCCURRED WHEN THE BRAKES WERE STILL COOL AND IN ALL CONDITIONS, DRY, SNOW AND RAIN. THE TRUCK HAD BARELY 40K MILES SO I TOOK IT TO BRAKES PLUS AND THEY SAID THAT THE BRAKE PADS WERE COMPLETELY FALLING APART; DISINTEGRATING THEY SAID. I HAD THEM INSTALL NEW BRAKES ($275) AND THE VIBRATION WENT AWAY FOR 2 WEEKS, BUT STARTED UP AGAIN. IT COULD BE FELT IN THE STEERING WHEEL AND APPEARED TO BE KEEPING THE VEHICLE FROM ACCELERATING. I TOOK THE TRUCK BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP (LARRY H MILLER FORD, LAKEWOOD, CO) WHERE I HAD PURCHASED IT USED ABOUT 8 MOS PRIOR. I HAD THE COVERAGE OF AN EXTENDED WARRANTY TO 48K MILES. THEY SAID THEY INSPECTED THE BRAKES AND DROVE IT AND COULD FIND NOTHING WRONG. INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, THE VIBRATION IS COMPLETELY GONE NOW AND IT'S BEEN ABOUT 3 WEEKS?? I AM CONVINCED THEY DID SOMETHING TO REPAIR THE PROBLEM BUT DID NOW WANT TO TELL ME WHAT THEY FOUND. ESPECIALLY IF IN THE FUTURE THE CALIPERS, MASTER CYLINDER, OR SOMETHING ELSE MAJOR ON THE BRAKES WAS GOING TO FAIL.
