car   Brake Disc Rotor problem of Dodge Stratus

Purchased a 2004 Dodge Stratus in July of 2003. By demeber 2003, at 6,00 miles, the rotors needed to be replaced due to warpage. In July 2004, apx 12,000 miles, the rotors needed to be replaced again due to warpage. I began to see this for what is is; a perpetual problem soon to be excluded from warranty work. I took a loss of 1,500. On the vehicle simply to get out from under it. I refuse to believe that this is due to my driving style, which is the standard line being given to Dodge owners. Did some research on the web to see if other Dodge owners experience this problem and it appears it comes standard with most Dodge vehicles. It appears the final solution involves shelling out 400 bucks out of pocket for a higher quality rotor. Call me crazy, but I expect standard mechanical equipment on a vehicle to actually do what it is supposed to do. I have never had rotor problems on any other vehicle I've owned. (granted, this is my first Dodge) this issue cries out for a recall!!!!!!!!!!!!. This issue happened on Thursday, December 18, 2003.

car   Brake Disc Rotor problem of Ford F-350

The car involved is a 2004 Ford F-350. The VIN of this vehicle is 1FTWW33PX4_. At just under 25,000 miles, my rotors were warped on my 2004 f350 diesel dually (4x4 8'bed crew cab). I do haul trailers under 8000 lbs occasionally but there has been no undo stress on this truck to warrant such a condition so early. Even though my brakes were "in the green" at my last oil change at 20,000 miles, after my complaint they said my brakes were now in the red - along with my warped rotors. This definitely seems like a defect. It was May 2, 2006 when this brake disc rotor issue happened.

car   Brake Disc Rotor problem of Honda Odyssey

The vehicle involved is a 2007 Honda Odyssey. This complaint is about the raybestos's advanced technology rotors (model #980290) that I brought at o'reilly auto part store and installed on my 2007 Honda Odyssey in 06/26/2011. Last week on 06/23/2013 while inspecting the pulsation issues, I found fine cracks on both rotors. With curiosity I searched "raybestos rotor cracks" over the internet and I found the brake rotor safety public awareness published at the raybestos site. Based on the information from raybestos, certain imported brake rotors including raybestos brand have this issue. I checked the box and found the rotors were made in china. Their site provided NHTSA link to file complaint. This brake disc rotor issue occurred Jun. 23, 2013.

car   Brake Disc Rotor problem of Infiniti G35

Routine service of the 2006 Infiniti G35x sedan at 18,000 miles required new front brake pads and rotors at a cost of almost $600. When I questioned the replacement of the brakes, especially the rotors, at this early stage I was told by the dealer this was normal for this model at about 20,000 miles. My research showed that this was a historical problem with this model, the company even extended the warranty to cover front brakes on the 2003-2005 models. Complaint filed with the manufacturer but was told this was considered normal maintenance, there was nothing they could/would do. It was Thursday, March 1, 2007 when this brake disc rotor issue happened.

car   Brake Disc Rotor problem of Infiniti G35

The vehicle involved was a 2005 Infiniti G35. The brakes on my wife's 2005 G35 Infiniti are dangerous. My wife has had two front brake repairs in the year (and less than 15,000 miles) she has owned the car. When she brought it in this time, they told her the rotor was on the brink of failure. In my opinion, after less than 8000 miles since the last brake job, the brakes should not be on the brink of catastrophic failure. Their response is that is normal brake wear for that car. This brake disc rotor problem happened on 10/10/06.

car   Brake Disc Rotor problem of Land Rover LR3

car   Brake Disc Rotor problem of Land Rover Freelander

The vehicle having this issue was a 2004 Land Rover Freelander. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is SALNY222X3_. My wife took her free lander into the landrover dealer for normal maintenance and oil change, and was told at the time that her brakes had to be replaced, including the rotors, pads, etc. The service manager at the dealership also advised her that this would happen every 24,000 miles and that's the way the Freelanders are. So basically, we are expected to spend over $400. 00 every year for a repair that shouldn't be necessary. She was also told at the time that the rotors were so thin that they were incapable of being resurfaced. Resurfacing is normal for almost all cars. Needless to say, this was not disclosed to us at the time of purchase, as we would have bought a more reliable vehicle had we known. If we had gone on past experiance, we would have not worried about the brakes until later down the road, as with most vehicles. This could have been disasterous. We found ourselves wondering what good "optimal performance on ice and snow" does when the substandard brakes don't last as long as on a Nissan or other similarly weighted vehicle. We wrote the manufacturer, but received no response. We were hoping another agency could at least warn possible future buyers. This brake disc rotor problem happened on Thursday, December 16, 2004.

Mercedes benz s 500 had total brake failure. Vehicle has about 12,000 to 14,000 miles on it. Dealer is trying to blame brake failure on rust on rotors due to lack of use of vehicle. I don't think the manual warns about this. Sounds like a make up story to me. I have had mercedes vehicles for about 30 years and never had a problem like this before. Brake failure caused an accident but since at very low speed no injuries. If it had happened at a high speed it could have led to serious injuries or death. This problem occurred on 10/18/2006.

car   Brake Disc Rotor problem of Mercury Villager

The vehicle involved is a 1997 Mercury Villager. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 4M2DV1114V_. We started reporting the problem with the sliding door on 7/15/99. The lock did not lock or unlock consistently whether using the remote or the inside automatic button and the door rattled like something was loose inside. The service dept at capitol Lincoln Mercury(richmond, va) decided to replace the antenna on 8/16. This did not correct the problem. On 10/4, I took it back again and they replaced the sliding door lock actuator. This corrected the problem with the door locking/unlocking but now, the child safety lock is stuck and the door still rattles. ****I initially reported a problem with the steering wheel shimmeying and the brakes grabbing on 8/16. They reported the brakes were okay - 5mm. I had the tires replaced and aligned which took 3 days because they didn't realize that they only had 3 tires. The steering wheel continued to shimmey so I took it back on 10/13. The weights had fallen off so they had to rebalance the tires. They also stated the the vibration when braking would be fixed by turning the front rotors which they did. They stated that with the turning of the rotors that I should replace my brakes which I did. . . For $55. 83. The next day, 10/14, I took the van back because it sounded like something was rubbing under the car. This problem was corrected by replacing the rotors that they turned the previous day. Currently, the steering wheel still shimmies just not to the extent as before. I'm taking it back again on 10/20. This brake disc rotor issue occurred August 16, 1999.

car   Brake Disc Rotor problem of Subaru Outback

The VIN of this vehicle was 4S4BP61C16_. I have a 2006 Subaru Outback 2. 5i wagon with less than 16,000 miles. The brakes grind and seem like they may not catch. In fact, a year ago we slid through an intersection on our way to have our taxes done when they did not hold. The dealer said it was due to rust and that Subaru does not cover rusted brakes on their warranty. We called the customer service number 1-800-782-2783 and talked to matt and he also indicated they did not warrant rusted brakes but that he would call the dealer. The car has low mileage, and 36 month 36000 bumper to bumper warranty and has always been stored in a garage. The brakes should not fail at less than 16000 miles. This car should be under warranty. Are they using substandard metal in the braking system? should this car be recalled for faulty brakes? is this a safety issue?. This brake disc rotor problem happened on Apr. 23, 2008.

car   Brake Disc Rotor problem of Subaru Outback

The vehicle was a 2005 Subaru Outback. The VIN of this vehicle is 4S4BP86C45_. The brake rotors on my 2005 Subaru have warped (all 4) at 14,000 miles producing a violent pulsating pedal and inefficient braking. This alone could cause some drivers to allow for insufficient braking distances causing a crash. It is now my understanding, after some investigation, that this is a "common" problem with this manufacturer for many years. The Subaru dealer cut the rotors under warranty but this should never have occurred at 14,000 miles. This issue happened on Friday, July 1, 2005.

Rotors on disc brakes are rusting and warping causing improper brake action and caused one near accident incident where my wife was unable to bring the vehicle to a complete stop before bumping the car in front of her. The rotors have been replaced 3 times in the first 15,000 miles. Buick has stated the problem is "cosmetic" and not covered under the warranty. The allege that we have not driven the car enough and we live to near to the ocean. Buick's customer service department has been contacted multiple times. The latest included a 3 way conversation with the dealer and technical support stafff. They stated that the dealer has another woman who is experiencing the same problem. The technical staff stated they have no solution. They expect the rotors to fail approximately every 3 - 4 months. They have directed me to the florida "lemon law' for resolution. I believe there is a serious safety issue with this vehicle when exposed to salt air. Just as in the firestone case, the data must be isolated to reflect the number of failures of rotor assemblies located in close proximity to salt water. Brake rotors should not fail every 3 - 4 months in normal usage. They have admitted that they are aware of the problem and intend to do nothing about it. Does this sound familiar. This brake disc rotor problem happened on 07/27/1999.
