I have been back to garage for this problem but of course by then the grabbing has stopped. I suppose I could leave car outside garage for 2 hours to produce effect.
I will not allow my wife to drive it as I fear she would panic at first hint of problem, --and I value her as a wife she has no S/H value having served me well for 51years !!!
I may have the pads replaced and pay up.
I bought a 1999 Megane scenic a few weeks back and I noticed the servo assitance is much greater than other cars and it took a while to get used to it, A few cars ago I bought a second hand Peugeot which had good disks and pads but it had been standing undriven for ages and when I first drove it the brakes were similar to yours, just surface rust on the disks which soon setled down. unless the pads are worn there is no point replacing them. I take it you mean the brakes seem to go hard on with a gentle application?

Best of luck
only driving since about 1973
