BlkBetty is on a distinguished road
I bought my 2012 overland used with about 19k. I was getting shuddering when braking and asked the dealer about it but they showed me that all pads and rotors were within spec. I replaced the rotors and pads the next week and haven't had the problem since. Guess the last guy just drive the shit out of the vehicle.

I've had the new pads and rotors on for about 8 months without issue. Rotors are wearing fine with no warping. The hawk semi-metallic pads I bought grip nicely but are loud as hell, so they're getting replaced in a month or two with some ceramic pads.

Re: Should my 2012 w/ 23k on it need rotors??

"they showed me that all pads and rotors were within spec" - they were spun on a brake machine or just measured the thickness ? Warped rotor will measure fine in a static test, runout is the key.

Sure that can happen. Sooner than average but not abnormal.

Like others said depends on usage.

Ever since asbestos was banned in brake pads, rotors are a complete crap shoot on how long they will hold up. But it has also driven down the cost of rotors

Most places won't even do it any more. Rotors are so cheap these days. It's a crap shoot if they are WARPED.
