The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.

While giving accelerator or braking, it makes screech sound from the front.
When inspected with a honda repair shop, he said to change brake pads and is quoting $250.
I did this change recently before a year and 2 months and same problem occurs again.
Strange thing i noticed is after inspection, the sound is more frequently occuring and more high noise. The same thing happened last time as well and i doubt while inspection it gets worsened even more.
