It's my wife's car and this is the third set of rotors the car has managed to warp. (she is not a spirited driver)

First set: OE with OE pads
Second set: Slotted rotors from Autozone (I don't believe they were actually Autozone brand though). I did use Autozone pads at that point though.
Third set: Standard rotors and new pads again from Autozone.

I see the common thread of Autozone crap, so I definitely plan on going away from that. But I want the problem to be solved. I don't have a lot of experience in the brake world as I have always just used the junk on my old truck and car. I have yet to replace them on the ST.

It's just an everyday driver for her, but our environment is extremely hot. I was looking at some of the EBC stuff but like I said I only know what I have seen on TV and in the magazines. Any input and education would be helpful. Thanks.

06 fusion I know of (my mothers) eats brakes too. And ECU's but that's a different story

Subd for solution
I haven't had any ECU issues. Only problem I have had is interior door handles and the brake problem. Other than that it has been a reliable car.

Front or rear? The rear brakes are usually the cause of brake pulsation which is unusual. We have owned 5 Fusions over the years and everyone had rear brake issues.

Front is the issue. Our has been in the past. But now that you say that, I'm worrying about the rear.
