    Has anyone else had issues with brakes and rotors? I have now had my
    brakes and rotors replaced or resurfaced 3 times in 30,000 miles. The
    first time was at 2,000 miles. The dealer is trying to tell me that
    it is my driving. I am a 40 year old stay at home mom with no history
    of needing brakes and rotors in previous 48,000 mile leases, so why
    now? They keep replacing them for nothing but I am starting to feel
    like I see more of the repair technician than my family. HELP!!

    you're being shamelessly ripped off. go to a different dealer or find
    an independent honda specialist.

    So Beam, how is the op being ripped off? I guess you ignored the part about
    it being free?

    The dealer is obviously responding to some specific complaint. It might be
    helpful to know what specifically is going wrong with the brakes that keeps
    bringing it back. Noises, judder, worn down, etc.?

    ok, the repetition is a rip-off. there's no way this work is necessary
    if the dealer is halfway competent, and is deliberate exploitation if
    they're not.
    that's not obvious. the op doesn't say so.
    indeed. but again, we don't know. to me, the op sounds like the kind
    of person that responds to dealer "inspection" offers. last time i
    bought new, i was deluged with b.s. from the dealer trying to tell me i
    "urgently" needed to take advantage of various "free" inspections,
    ultra-short service schedules, etc. if they're susceptible to
    suggestion like this, they're going to get the hose every time. a buddy
    of mine is on his 3rd complete new braking system in only 45k miles
    courtesy of san francisco honda. apparently he needs a new catalyst for
    $900 too - excluding labor. it's a joke.

    I too have had brake issues....05 CRV. Complained of vibration when
    braking...was told all four rotors warped...Find it strange because
    vehicle has <29k miles on it and this is not my 1st car.....did not
    change driving habits...do not ride brakes in traffic or constantly
    brake hard....was told this was a ware-and-tair item and thus not
    covered under warranty......
