1993 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 210000 miles
Hello, my Accord has been eating front brake rotors repeatedly. The front struts, front calipers, front and rear pads, and CV joints have all been replaced at normal maintenance intervals. There is no caliper drag, and I don't brake heavily. After new rotors are installed by my mechanic, about 5000 miles later the steering wheel will vibrate on braking at highway speeds and when I take it in I'm told the rotors are warped. I replace the rotors and the problem goes away for another 5000 miles. Usually I just put up with it but I'm tired of this and I know I'm probably wearing front end parts prematurely.
I'm due for new tires soon, but wanted to check this out first. The tires have been rotated.
There is no vibration on acceleration, turning, or going straight. Only when braking.
What else could be the problem?
Would high quality rotors and pads solve this? If so, what would you recommend?
have the same problem?
