You need to replace the brake pads and rotors. Not a difficult thing and can save a good chunk of change. I can get you through this.
The rotors are likely warped and causing the pads to push in and out against the caliper giving the pulsation. PRobably gets worse the longer you drive it or at the very least a bad shake when breaking from thruway speeds.
Do you have rear drum or disc brakes.
What is the color of the brake fluid?
Clear or dark. My guess not too bad. Suck out the fluid in the reservior and replace with new. IF you do this occassionally it keeps it fresh and reduces contaminants or moisture
Look at the page that Ken and Mike put up:
I really like the Napa Ultra premium rotor and the napa Adaptive one brake pads set.
