2001 Honda Accord Q&A
2001 Honda Accord Question: Do I need new rotors if steering wheel shakes after I got new front brake pads?
Car has 78,000 miles. I just had front brake pads replaced. Afterward, steering wheel has been shaking when I brake. (Never did that before.)The service shop (a Honda dealership) said they resurfaced the rotors, applied the pads, and their measurements were fine. But, they said that after 3-4 resurfacings the rotors might get too thin and warp, even though their measurements didn't show this, and that I probably need new rotors. Are they telling me the truth? Is it safe for me to drive the car in this condition? Are new rotors to be expected after 78,000 miles? - rachgo
In order to answer you more accurately , two things would be helpful. How many miles from the dealership did you get before you noticed the vibration? second , has it ever had the front pads replaced before? Answer those honestly , and I can give you some info that will hopefully be of good use. - ziptie12
