What’s wrong with your calipers?
Warpage is caused by an intentional design flaw in the modern ABS breaks – the rotors are too thin and do not have enough mass to dissipate the heat. This is not only a Quest issue – many vehicles on the roads have exact same symptoms.
I would get new rotors if yours are worn and cannot be machined further and try using more relaxed driving style, keep a longer distance from the vehicles ahead etc. That would prolong the rotor and pad life.
When I bought the Quest back in 2008, I did not know that and drove in exact same manner I used to drive the old Maxima. Then the rotors warped and my mechanic told me of the above. Since then I slowed down and never had the issue again. Right now I am on the machined once rotors and still no pulsation in the brake pedal.
