I recently had a shimmy in the front end of my 3.8 AWD 2015 Genesis.The service tech suggested I needed to have the front rotors turned. A couple months later the front end shimmy returned, the tech told me I needed to have the rear rotors turned. After this was done and the shimmy was still there, I was told I needed new brakes on the front. But the dealership refused to compensate me for the back rotors that apparently weren't needed. My question is it true the back brakes and front brakes function as a unit and either could have caused the front end shimmy. Thanks,

Rear brakes very seldom have any effect on the car and have no effect on the steering. The shimmy I guess is under light braking? Which indicates the front rotors have a thickness variation and need machining or replacing. If it's not you may have a bent rim or if it's at a bit of speed most likely out of balance tyre.
