I have replaced the rear rotor on my 2012 RG twice because of runout. Brakes on this RG we're never as good as my 07 RG that did not have ABS, but now the rear brake is very ineffective. All parts are from the dealer. Any ideas?

Are you sure its not just the way ABS is ?

How does the pedal feel when you hit the rear brake? Is it a firm pedal? Have the brakes bled. It may be possible that the pads got glazed over from possible overheating which will reduce stopping power. You said the rotors were replaced. Did you do it yourself. Sometimes the new rotors come in the box coated with an oil to keep them from tarnishing until they are installed. We're the rotors cleaned before they got installed?

There shouldn't be any problem with the rotor on the back brakes. The back brake rotor is thicker than the front rotors are and they shouldn't warp.
The front rotor will bolt on the rear wheel so make sure that you are getting a back rotor when putting on a new rotor not a front rotor.
You could have the rear brake dragging causing the rotor to overheat.
