    So I tell the dealer, tell them I'll need a loaner.... And I will sign my car over to whoever can guess exactly what they said.... I was shocked

    I think your case is unique.
    How many miles do you have now?

    And just a thought.
    You said when pulling hand brake it was going straight, right? So it defies theory of rear caliper and its fading issue...

    Nope. In this one the handbrake activates brake pads on the rotor surface. In most cars (KIA/Hyundai) I had it was drum (for handbrake) inside the rotor.

    The pads are being pushed via the lever... This is called "ball something". I do not remember now.

    Look on the hollow space under the rotor (where hub is). Look on the smaller bolt, just under the parking brake cable. When you open the picture in full size you will see inside the hub opening/rotor. That's the place where drum should be if it was drum/rotor type brake.

    Maybe the parking brake should be checked first?

    Oh yeah okay, oddly enough when I pull the brake, both tires grab at the same time. No pulling

    if so, I would exclude rear brakes from discussion for now. Probably even the whole rear axle.

    Now, did you check ABS on dirt road?

    Yes, seemed fine. The E brake is mechanical, but what if the brake, which is fluid, is sticking?

    A pinched line may cause uneven braking as the hydraulic pressure would not be the same on both calipers- this would not affect parking brake as it's actuated by a cable
