Ask Smithy Xtra Warping brakes on Honda Accord

Asked by J de Rooy

It appears the Honda Accord Euro has a problem with brake rotors warping. Our 2007 Honda Euro has only done around 30,000 km, but it too has warped rotors. The dealer carried out measurements etc. as requested by Honda and they indicated the front left was warped beyond the tolerances and that Honda should really fix the problem, but Honda twice rejected the claim. It is a dangerous situation and does not cost a lot to fix, but we feel they are avoiding the repair as it may set a precedent. We have now escalated this to the NSW Dept Fair Trading and we will see how it goes. Have you had other enquiries in this regard and what was the result?

Your report is not the only one of rapid wear and warping of the rotors, but carmakers regard the wear as normal wear and tear. All brakes wear, so you have to determine if the wear on your car is indeed “normal” or something more. Certainly at 30,000 km you would appear to have a case.
