    Rotors normally get hot, so what makes you believe this is abnormal?

    The rotors are extremly hot after driving a very short distance....I guess I should have made that clearer....what they are doing is not normal

    My spindle just died in Colorado on a cross country trip. Not sure why. Heard that type of problem was typical of other makes, but not Honda. I wonder if it's related.
