My mechanic (and many others) tell me and have for quite awhile that the rotors on most all front wheel drive cars are not up to snuff like in the past with rear wheel drive cars.
The say they are smaller, lighter and more prone to temperature
dispursement. Done for emissions / fuel economy.
They also to a fault say that the rear wheel drive vehicles just don't have the same problem with warpage. You know when I think about, I never had warped rotors on my rear wheel drivers,
yet some of the front wheel drivers I've owned did warp.
Just listening to people at work and it does seem quite common.
Buicks, Hondas, Kias ,Toyotas, Chevys all in the last 2 months.
Makes you wonder. I'm just glad my Mopars haven't given me any problems.
