Question Are brakes or resurfacing covered under warranty?

I wouldn't have thought so, but I know I saw a post mentioning it somewhere. I have a My00 RS with 23K miles om it. The rotors are beginning to shudder because of variation. If not under warranty, what does it cost to turn rotors?

Thanks-

Robmat

No, Sorry if you had 12k then ya but your mileage is to high.

Go to STS they did my front pad and re did the rotors for 135

I would double check, you have nothing to lose. My dealer told me as of this year, 2002, SOA covers wear and tear items to 36K now, not 12K anymore. I would guess they would have to see if the rotors are normal or not.

Yeah, that's about right.

I've had my rotors machined under warranty, but obviously the pads are not covered.

Obviously, if you have blue toasted rotors, that's not grounds for a warranty claim. In my case, it's probably due to improperly torqued lugnuts following a strut replacement. Things were shuddering real bad before I took the car in.

I have been reading the warranty manual, but have found no mention of rotors, whether they be covered or not. Is anyone familiar with this?

Cool

Hi Folks!
Subaru will cover the machining of the brake rotors in a case where the rotors have excessive runout,and the brake pads still have significant life left(better than 50%). This coverage is good for 3 years or 36,000 miles from the date of 1st sale. The brake pads are considered wear items, which are covered for 12 months or 12,000 miles on 2000my or older. on 2001my and newer, the wear item coverage was increased to 3 years or 36,000 miles(this covers brake pads,wiper blades,wheel alignment, etc.)
I hope this helps!

Interesting post by Subaru of Santa Cruz.
I had warped rotors on my Honda Civic (completely stock) at 5,500 miles. I warped coming down from Tahoe with four passengers in the car, so it was kind of my fault as I should have used the transmission more to control my speed. The dealer denied warranty service on them, then said that he see's Honda's with warped rotors "all the time" and it would only be $300 for them to resurface them. I never had the rotors fixed on that car and at 49,000 (when I sold the car), I was still on the original pads. Besides the fact that Honda brakes suck, it seems their warranty coverage does as well!

When your hot on the brakes, then don't hold them when you've come to a stop. That's the part/action that warps them!

It cost me about $8/rotor to drop the rotors off at Napa and have them resurfaced.

dealer quote! Nice guys, eh?

I'm not sure if I buy the "staying on the brakes after you've stopped theory" but I'm no expert.
Where's romanom? Seems like that's a guy who knows a thing or two about brakes.

standing on the brakes after you have been on them hard(hot brakes) is a sure way to warp your rotors.

It is a sure way to warp them, but surely not the only way Your original post made it sound like that was the only way to warp brake rotors...
