Use them really hard. It might just be rust. Mine will rust if I'm washing in my driveway and let it sit for a little bit. It's not sticking, it's just 'probably' rust.

Use them...work them. If that doesn't do it, then come back and report.

Calipers can get stuck...either from guidepins or the piston hanging up. After a car wash, though, rust is most likely.
