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.

    I 2013 vibrates obviously when breaking (front wheel). It's only 18 month old at 16000 miles. I went to the local dealership and have it checked. They said it's warped rotors. They end up re-surfacing the rotors. Honda is paying for the fix. However, i am very worried since the care is very new. And i driver quite carefully. I am afraid that this problem will happen every 15K miles or so. I think the rotors is of bad quality.

    I had a problem with my brake rotors warping frequently with this car. I just left the warped rotors on until they were actually warn and lived with the mild vibrations. Replace with New Honda Rotor and Brake Pads, but same results after 20-30K.
