I would tend to agree with Steve, bear in mind that the bulk of the brake work is done by the front set and if a new set of pads and discs ( rotors ? ) have been fitted recently, it may take a while for them to bed in. You might like to carefully file a champher on the leading edges of all the pads and this will take off the sharp edge of the pad where it contacts the disc. This is often necessary with the harder pad that takes it time to bed in. I would look at the emergency ( hand ) brkae after looking at the main pads and discs as they do very little work indeed, other than to keep the car form moving once stopped. Hope this helps
