Are rusty wheel rotors common at 60K?

55

Asked by Oct 04, 2007 at 04:32 PM about the 2001 Toyota RAV4

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Inspection of rear wheels revealed decidua, which was vacuumed out.
Front wheel rotors beginning to rust, esp. one side.  Is this common?   When this needs to be addressed, I will look for a mechanic who works for less than $94/hour.

hi rusty wheel rotors are common at any mileage-surface rust-if you put away your car wet and leave you car set for a few days they will start to show some surface rust- when you drive the car and apply brakes it should shine them up a bit- if its more than surface rust your brakes could need some repair. hope this help you!
