Unsure if I neew Rotors and/or brakes?
I have 2010 Accord Coupe (4cyl) with about 17,144 on the odometer. When I come to a stop on the highway from 55 m.p.h, I am begining to feel some "feedback" or a small vibration in the steering wheel area. The front 2 wheels were balanced and the front brake pads, I was told, are abrout 50% worn. The car is leased and is due back 4/13. My questions are as folows:
a) Can the rotors wear out before the brake pads do?
b) Can the rotors be re-surfaced the first time around, or will the rotors continue to warp if they are re-surfaced?
c) Can the rotors be re-surfaced or replaced with-out changing the brake pads?
d) What is the price range for both rotors and pads in the Long Island, NY area?
e) If I present the car to a repair shop do I have them road test the vehicle at 55 m.p.h to see if they can duplicate the problem?
f) Lastly, I was told that "warped" rotors can't be seen visually...is that correct?
