Anyone notice the front disk rotors
They seem to be getting deep gouges in the them as i build up miles,
6500 already.
The rear rotors are still very smooth
Could be a revolting development
Normal or not??

I spend all my time Dazed and Confused

doesn't seem like it should be normal, i'll check mine out tonight to make sure mine aren't. seems like it could be a pretty bad problem

WOW, I thought it was only mine! At 300 miles, I noticed that there were deep grooves starting to develope in the front rotors on both sides, while the rear rotors were smooth (as they should be). Now at almost 1500 miles the grooves are worse. Sounds like a trip to the dealer is in order. Over the years, GM has used inferior steel in rotors and had unannounced recalls on them (bring them in and get them replaced for free)

Mine is doing the same thing. I have about 6,000 miles on mine and I started to notice that there was some movement in the brake petal.

I smell a recall. :(

There's no way there should be grooves in the rotors. Especially at such low mileage.

i not looking forward to this.
i brought the ca down today
The rotors are bad
They are going to be replaced
reason
"When they were sitting at the loading dock for two weeks
The rust on the rotors started to eat away at them
So when you finally use the car the rust flacks gouge the rotors
Sounds like BS to me.
i think there is a problem with this lot of rotors and someone is not telling me the truth.

Here’s the kicker
they are replacing the rotors
but not the brake pads????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Don’t the pads have the grooves in them from the bad rotors?
or maybe the pads were causing the rotors to be gouged???????????????????????????????????????
This sounds like very bad maintenance practice.
You should not change rotors without changing pads.
:confused:

No freggin way!

Try after only 800+ miles!

I just did a post on "vibrations" last night. Went out and ran my fingernail across the rotors. Wow. Nice groove. AND only 800 miles? I'd hate to see what they look like @ 6K miles. Hmm..

Car is only two weeks old. Guess I'll be taking it back to the dealer. At least they are not giving you a hard time right? Like you were racing, etc, etc...

Well, it is advertised as a "perfomance" vehicle. Therefore the rotors should be able to handle some hard braking and certainly should not have gouges in them after so few miles.
