Warped Rotors

Anybody else run into this issue I only have 29,000 km on it and the brakes pulsate bad. The dealer said all 4 rotors need to be replaced from warping, not covered by warranty its almost $1600 to change them from the dealer. I have just driven it as a daily driver no hard braking or track use. Any suggestions of cheaper/better alternatives? Also would calling SRT help in this case?

Re: Warped Rotors

i have same model year, i have over 30,000 miles on mine and no warped rotors yet, also haven't had to change brake pads. just looked at the rotors today, starting to develop a lip around the edge so most likely i will need new ones soon maybe 5000 more miles or so but no pulsing felt, will change to brembo sport drilled or slotted rotors and either stoptech or hawk pads, dealership charges way to much to replace OEM when I looked at their prices compared to the items listed above.

1600? Holy crap. Just do it yourself. You can save a ton of money if you have the ability to do so. Order the Brembo drilled rotors.

Re: Warped Rotors

I had the same problem but it was only the front ones. They were replaced under warranty because I am still under 20,000 km . I am also baffled why they did not last . I can be accused of hard acceleration but I never used the brakes very hard.
