Yes it is. Way back in '87 when my dad got that generation of Accords, it was a known fact that the rotors warped on Hondas then. I guess it still carry overs until today.02-RRP-EX said:Seems to be a very common problem on Hondas/Acuras.
I turned the original rotors and drums from my Bronco II at 52k in 1999, and now at 94k there's just a hint of vibration starting in the pedal. So by turning them for 7 bucks apiece I saved a couple of hundred bucks in unnecessary rotor/drum replacement. Rotors for an auto-hub 4WD vehicle can be quite expensive.manualman said:A few tips.
1. Never 'turn' rotors. If they are warped, replace them. If just the pads are worn and the rotors aren't warped, just replace pads. I haven't had to do the Ody yet, but new generic rotors often cost only a little more than turning the old ones. (For DIY folks, anyways)
Manchester Honda quotes 1999-04 front rotor at $87.50 for one. San Leandro Honda $86+. I do not see these prices as cost coming down.The price of these disposable rotors has come down dramatically making it cost prohibitive to turn them
