Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question

This sounds like it could be a siezed caliper. Did you take it back to the shop that did the work?

No since then fully serviced and new breaks why would caliper cause vibration and power loss intermittantly?

Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Well I have seen calipers seize which will cause the vibration and it will also feel like the car is loosing power cause the brakes are stuck on and holding you back.

Did you take it back to the mechanic to recheck his work?
