    Idk much about the brake problem, but personally those wheels pose a problem. They look like they belong in the 'ghetto' on an early 2000's GMC Denali. But honestly, the more I look at them, the less harsh they become.

    how many miles on the car? how many miles on the pads and rotors? warped rotors? wheels not balanced correctly? car unaligned?

    seems like you have a good amount of mods since its really low and i can see an FMIC. what are all your mods?

    also by yourusername i see the vf as a mod lol..

    but anywho i dont believe on that model theres a hill assist..unless that was an overseas option.. but maybe its your ABS kicking in early?

    trying pulling the ABS fuse and make a few stops and it could be the ABS...if it still does it plug the fuse back in and then my guess is its warped rotors or maybe the pads. can clean the pads and get the rotors resurfaced. but answer the question on the mileage on the brake rotor and pad mileage and that will be more help

    brakes are fairly new, so say they have about 8mm or so of pad life. then take into account that youre supposed to replace/resurface rotors each brake job. also check your master cylinder reservoir level. if its too high you may be causing your brakes to drag

    ok so seems like its an ABS issue and not the warped rotors or whatever else. Does this problem occur every time you stop? Do you notice the problem when braking on loose surfaces? Plug the fuse back in and try braking on loose surfaces and report back.

    My ABS did what seems to be similar to this. It would kick in early on loose surfaces like snow, small rocks on the road. There is a recall out for that problem, where the Subaru dealer will replace the ABS ecu for no charge so the problem will not occur anymore.
