Angry 2018 Kia Niro Breaks & Jerking

My 2018 fully loaded Niro was fine until I brought it in for 5 recalls. Now the breaks sound like they are grinding when applied (not always) and the car jerks as if it is shifting gears or the transmission is slipping (like in a old car) even though I'm staying at a constant speed. I brought it into the dealership and they couldn't find anything wrong. Hmmm. The loaner Niro did the exact same thing. The Niro I was given as a loaner while the recalls were being done, didn't do either. What happened to these cars during the recalls. My co-worker is a master mechanic. Had him drive it and when we stopped in front of co-workers standing in the parking lot, they all asked what was wrong with my breaks. Feel like I bought a very expensive headache.

Light braking noise? If so, something is super wrong.

Have had recalls (and some updates not considered recalls) all up to date.

I don't see nay change (degrade or improvement) in operation.

The biggest thing I notice in my 2018 is the brakes feel a bit cheap. I really wonder if they cheeaped out on the rotors and pads on them. The deceleration when stopping seems a bit wonky, meaning it does not feel even and smooth like on my truck. Yes I know its a Kia.
