2008 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 21,840 miles
At 7,000 miles I braked hard to avoid hitting a deer at 65 MPH and my car jerked left. Around 13,000 miles I braked hard in traffic and my car swerved right. In between that time I began to feel vibration during normal braking in the front wheels and sterring wheel. I took my car into the dealer at 21,840 (7 month old car & all highway miles) and they told me I needed a front brake job.
They said the rotors had hot spots on them and it was due to normal wear and tear. Shouldn't ABS have helped prevent this problem to begin with? I have not had this problem on any of my past vehicles during the past 13 years of driving about 140 miles per day for work. I am worried about having to replace the brakes every 15,000 miles or so on this vehicle.
have the same problem?
