    I would be leaning towards the beginning of a sticky caliper or two. Jack each wheel up in turn and rotate by hand to check for noises and resistance, and possibly warping.

    I got checked by a friend and said that something is wrong with the front calipers. He said that the brakepads on the front are not straight and dont't touch the discs evenly. As I got the car only 2 months I would have expected the garage to check this as part of the service not good....

    Never knew of brake pads going askew unless they had been incorrectly fitted and if your car is indeed 2015 it is even more disconcerting. Perhaps an inspection by a qualified independent, especially if the pads have been replaced for whatever reason.
