On these cars, the park brake is separate (a shoe setup inside the rear rotors) so you can no longer do that to determine which end of the car the vibration is coming from. The only way to know for sure is if it is severe enough to shake the steering wheel (this would be front) or to shake through the seats (most likely rear).

Stick to your guns! You're correct in saying it was not fixed in the first go around and they should still honour the warranty. If they had been smart, they would have told you no warranty to begin with, but now they have committed themselves. LOL

Good luck Sheena!
I sure hope your car comes out looking better than new!!! Shaganappi did a great job on my bumper and the keyed area and were a pleasure to work with!! Amazing what body shops can do!

I won't back down on the brakes. Will just see what they have to say later today.
