rotors warped

Asked by Feb 10, 2009 at 08:44 AM about the 2006 Saturn VUE Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The front rotors on my 2006 Vue has been warped twice, 16,000 miles and 36,000.  Is this normal? The dealership said it's because the rotors had a hot spot and got wet or it's because of the stop and go traffic.  This is my 3rd Saturn, but I will think twice on my next car.

Not normal but common on 06 vue. I had the same problem with warping soon after replacing tires. I have heard of another cause but cannot confirm that overtorquing or inproper installation of lug nuts can cause warping of rotors which I think is the case for me although I got two years, approx. 30,000 miles on rotors and pads, it was time for a break job anyway. replaced with quality rotors and pads and all is well. Replaced struts at 50,000, median shaft which was causing a clunk in front suspension (luckily under warrenty). Recently developed a grinding noise after brakes heat up but doesn't affect braking performance. Guess what I am doing this weekend. 06 vue w/93000 miles

no this is not normal,never heard of a hot spot on them,getting them wet wont warp them nor stop and go traffic.you can buy new ones that are warped,best thing is to have them turned,but not at a dealer,let your mechanic turn them.
