Impreza brakes warped

Asked by Mark

My wife's 2011 Subaru Impreza has done just 30,000 km and we were told at the 30,000 km service that the front discs were warped and needed to be machined. When I asked if this was covered by warranty we were told it wasn't. I think this is amazing, as the car has only been driven on country roads. Is this reasonable?

Brakes are not covered by the warranty; they are considered consumables that wear out as a matter of course. That they need machining at such low lays is frustrating, have you thought about asking the dealer to show you the discs and justify their opinion they actually need machining. There's no harm in questioning your dealer.
