Have them check it for end play in the bearings.

Remember those cars have adjustable front hub bearings which can need tightened up a little bit.

Sometimes when the tech replaces the fron rotors and packs the bearings, they dont seat the bearings right and do not gauge them for end play.

It is usually noticeable right away, but sometimes may rear its ugly head as a vibration if the bearings get worn.

You may be able to repack the bearings and snug them up a little bit.

Check it yourself.

jack the front end up and put a jack stand under the frame.
then grab the lower and upper portion of the wheel and wiggle it back and forth and see if you feel any play or wobble in the wheel.

it's a simple test and can tell you alot about the wheel bearing condition.
