I have a 2007 Acura TSX with 117k miles. We had the rotors and pads replaced in July of 2014 at Midas (won’t go back there again!). Anyway, we are getting a pulsating in the steering wheel (shaking) when braking at times. Sometimes it is much more noticeable than others. This started shortly after having the pads/rotors installed. I took it back to Midas, and of course they couldn’t duplicate the issue.
So, here’s my question, can we continue to drive the car until it needs new pads (then I’ll change the pads and rotors)? I know that the steering vibration can be annoying at times (it’s not AWFUL, but you can tell that they’re warped). I really hate to have to replace both right now as money is pretty tight with buying a house.
What kind of major issues will I be dealing with?
Also, is there ANYONE in the Southeast Wisconsin/Northern Illinois area that would be interested in making some extra cash and taking off my or rotors for me? I heard Napa will turn them for $15/each. Problem is, I have NO idea how to remove/install them ): I will pay, just need some help!
