Ah, but (at least with Hondas) don't forget to have brand new rotors turned--"trued"--on the car as part of the installation.

Fact: unless you do this, you won't be happy with the braking. It'll shudder.

So I wouldn't say *never* have rotors turned.

Put new rotors on and don't machine them: get shuddering during braking.

Put new rotors on and true them on the car: no shuddering during braking.

Those were the facts in my case, and my mechanic told me he wasn't surprised when I reported this. He trued them up for me (took off very little material; just enough to get them straight while on the car), and that was that.

Honda has always turned rotors on the car.
