Front brake hose blocked
Caliper was dragging on Front brake and creating excessive heat, so replaced caliper, rotors and pads thinking problem solved. Issue continued so ran across a few articles on blocked hoses at the metal bracket that bolts to the strut. Sure enough mine was blocked due to rust from the metal bracket. Just an FYI to check if brakes are dragging.

Re: Front brake hose blocked
I had to replace a front brake hose on my Vue for the same reason
the inner hose can collapse and act like a check valve - fluid goes in, and does not come back out.
On my normal commute with a manual transmission there are several places where I usually have to stop for a red light, on a slight incline. That is my dragging brake test location - if I hold the clutch in with no brake, the vehicle should creep backwards slightly.
If it doesnt then I know a brake is dragging. You can do the same test with an automatic, drop it into neutral and take your foot off the brake.
