took delivery of new acura 2003 3.2tl type s on may 10, 2002. with about 7,000 miles on vehicle started to notice slight "shimmy" / "shutter" when applying brakes...greater impact at speeds 40 - 70mph. this indicates warped brake rotors. finally insisted that dealer address issue. dealer first offered to "turn" rotors; i declined and asked that they contact honda for replacement of rotors. honda agreed on, "good-will one time basis." furture warranty coverage will be by "turning" rotors. rotors and brake pads replaced at 9,675 miles. i have been told that the cause is "owner distinctive driving habits." when asked for a definition, i was told that i must live on and or drive on long - steep hills which necessitates extened use of brakes. this is totally incorrect and they were advised of that. if normal use of the brakes will cause warping, then the brakes are not fit for their implied usage as defined under the uniform commerical code-implied warranty mechantability. in discussion with a member of the acura staff, it was disclosed that about 50% of the vehicles experience this problem. honda/acura technical service bulletins have been made unavailable to consumers; however, i have been advised that the tsb addressing this issue calls for rotor replacement or "turning" rotors. it is clear that honda/acura is in it's normal mode of denial of a problem. a problem which is most likely caused by engineering design defect and/or improper heat treatment/hardening of the rotor material in conjuncition with the composition of the brake pad material. this is a serious defect and safety hazard.

this involves my 2002 acura tl type s and the braking system. i have aprox. 22,000 miles on my car. on a recent trip from los angeles to las vegas i noticed an unusual amout of vibration when braking the car from high speeds (70's). i had this happen to me earlier and the dealer turned and resurfaced the rotors and replaced the pads with "non destructive" new ones. the earleir event happened around 15,000 miles or so. last week my transmission failed (honda is now recalling) and i informed the service tech of my recurring braking problem. i was told today, by keys acura van nuys, ca that they weren't going to fix the brakes and i should pay to have the now warped rotors replaced when the pads wear out! i couldn't believe this! this is the first car i've owned that had 2 major braking faileures in less than 20000 miles and the dealer refused to repair it. i believe this is of great saftey concern and not at all normal wear and tear! i don't live in san fransisco where the hills can tear up your brakes. i know other acura owners have this issue with the breaks and i personally think they are endangering people by neglecting to service this dangerous failure. i hope you can help get them to act responsibility. *ak

brake rotors were severly warped. this is normally a wear and tear item and is expected to require replacement; however, acura knows of a manufacturing defect with the brakes on at least the 2001 3.2 cl and 1999-2001 tl vehicles as evidenced by tsb 01-017. this is the second time i've required the rotors to be replaced (not just resurfaced) in 45,000 miles. first time at around 25,000, second now at 45,000. there is no reason the rotors should have warped a second time since the tsb was addressed and the new pads and rotors should have prevented the heat issue that leads to warping. this was obviously not the case. the tsb does not fully correct the issue and can lead to a dangerous situation as the brakes are not taken in for service.

2001 acura cl type s, front brake rotors warping: at 34000 miles, the brake discs had warped. i took the car to the dealership, and after i showed them the acura technical service bulletin 01-017 about warped brakes, they agreed to resurface the brakes under warranty. at this time the two service writers acknowleged that the brake rotors were a weakness on the acura tl and cl, that they serviced about ten cars per week for this, and that they had put new brake rotors on their personal vehicles. 14000 miles later, at 48000 miles, the rotors were warped again, and i persuaded them to replace the rotors with new ones under warranty. (i paid for new pads.) now, 16000 miles later, at 64000 miles, the new rotors have warped. i am a mechanical engineer, and i know how to drive to cause the least amount of heat build up in the rotors, so this is a case of underdesigned rotors.*ak
