|ot1||You had a brake job prior but were the rotors replaced then? You might still have a stuck caliper problem. Buy a infrared thermometer from harbor freight and check temps after driving 30 minutes and compare both sides, if there a large differential they didnt fix the problem. Shoot it through the spokes onto the rotor.|

Braking is usually smooth.
Time to find another mechanic.

|#11BenzAZE350||AFTER OWNING AN AUDI FOR SEVERAL YEARS, I BOUGHT A 2011 E350 AND AM A LITTLE CONCERNED WITH THE JERKY BRAKING UNLIKE THE SMOOTH DECELERATION WITH THE AUDI. MY STAR SERVICE MECHANIC TOLD ME THE BRAKES AND ROTORS WERE IN GREAT SHAPE. IS THIS JUST AN ATTRIBUTE OF MERCEDES BRAKES?|

Also avoid riding the brakes which can cause a build up of excessive heat.

spot on BENZYLE - it was warped rotors. Shop replaced under warranty...

If you mean the brake pedal pulsates during braking,,that could be several things,
1. Wheel bearings worn or out of adjustment.
2.Caliper not sliding properly due to bad installation.
3.Brake rotor warped.
If you had a garage do the brakes I would take it back and get them to check their work.

Pumping Action when breaking...
Yesterday, i started to feel a slight pumping action when breaking coming from the front of the car (i.e. feeling it on brake pedal and steering wheel).
The brakes were done about 1800 miles ago and everything has been fine. Car is a 2008 E350 with 4matic, Sport option and has 117K on it.
I am wondering if it's ABS or the wheels, tires ? There are no codes ...any thought's/direction appreciated.
