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.

    Driver front Caliper failure causing complete loss of brake & significant rotor damage on same side. Note: the front passenger brake pad still has 80% life left to it and rotor on this side was fine. Damage caused by the failed driver side caliper created costly repairs since I was required by the mechanic to replace brakes and rotors on BOTH sides to prevent dangerous mechanical driving conditions.

    I had a problem with my brake rotors warping frequently with this car. The rotors would only have 20,000 miles and would be done. Eventually I just left the warped rotors on until they were actually warn and lived with the mild vibrations. Although rotors would warp so badly that they had to be replace after only 10,000 miles.

    We had the rotors machined and new pads put in. Judder came back afetr 5K miles, then had new rotors installed and newer harder pads and compliance bushings replaced. Will see where we go from here.
