Repairing rotors

#1

My rotors need to be repaired on my car that is 2 1/2 years old. The brake pads are only 60% worn and have never been replaced. Is this common or are the rotors defective?


#2

Rotors don’t get “repaired”, they get replaced. “Repair” would mean “turned” on a lathe, but nobody does that anymore. It leaves the turned rotors more susceptable to warping.

Why do you need them replaced? Is the car pulsating when braking?


#3

Repaired probably means replaced probably because they are warped. On major cause of warped rotors is improper lug nut tightening and not a fault of the rotor. More info = better answers.
