I have a 2007 Honda Accord with about 20,000 miles. Repair Pal indiates warped brake rotors are a commom problem. I am experiencing vibration In brake pedal and steering wheel when I brake esp from higher speed. I have had wheels balanced and alignment and still experience the vibration. Are warped brake rotors generally covered under Honda's 36000 bumper to bumper warranty and should I return to the dealership to have the work done?

I don't think warped brake rotors or brake pads would be covered by Honda's warranty. It would be considered normal wear and tear. Personally I don't think the Accord "warps" brake rotors any more frequently than most other makes of car but if you drive in mountainous areas, tow a trailer, or driving habits could contribute to brake rotor warpage. Automatic cars also may warp rotors more frequently than a manual transmission car. A manual trans car you tend to shift down a gear , but in a auto trans car you apply the brakes to slow down!

Rotors would not be covered.
