Is it normal for brake rotors to wear out?

Asked by Colin Warnick

I own a 2013 Hyundai i30 Tourer, which has just done 58,000 km and had its four-year service. At that service I was advised the front brake rotors and front and rear disc pads needed replacement. Apparently the rotors were below the wear limit making machining not possible. I have owned a number of cars in the last 20 years or so, all of which had done well over 100,000 km and I don't recall ever replacing rotors. While I can accept the disc pads perhaps, I was very surprised that the rotors had worn out. Do you think that is normal for this particular i30 model?

It's not uncommon for rotors to wear out at low kilometres, as yours have done. The wear varies from brand to brand, from car to car, and can depend on driving conditions.
