under very hard braking, just slamming on my brakes with full force, i expereince this too. Had a couple close calls. I warped my rotors from that, and now i need new brakes. First time i experienced the grinding noise was at about 5k miles. I now have 10k miles and have an appointment for monday at acura to replace my rotors and brakes.

Abs

Sounds like you engaged the ABS. It's pretty rough feeling when you do. You just have to get used to it. By the way, don't do it if you don't have to because it can warp your rotors. If you do that again, just make sure you don't stop, keep the car rolling to let the heat disspate evenly. If you stay put after a really hard stop, the pads are really hot and sitting on one section of the disk that can warp them. Good luck.

same thing happens to me as well. Specially while going from a highway onto an exit, the brakes really start doing a dug-a-dug-a-dug.... sound.
is it ABS everytime?

Yes, happens most often when you are braking over uneven surface (i.e. going over man-hole, or up a driveway ramp). The TSX's ABS system, I find, is more sensitive than others.

i don't hear grinding when the ABS kicks in. but i feel the vibration/bumps that you all feel. may want to check your pads/rotors just in case.
