Default 2005 CRV brake issues

Has anyone else had issues with brakes and rotors? I have now had my
brakes and rotors replaced or resurfaced 3 times in 30,000 miles. The
first time was at 2,000 miles. The dealer is trying to tell me that
it is my driving. I am a 40 year old stay at home mom with no history
of needing brakes and rotors in previous 48,000 mile leases, so why
now? They keep replacing them for nothing but I am starting to feel
like I see more of the repair technician than my family. HELP!!

you're being shamelessly ripped off. go to a different dealer or find
an independent honda specialist.

So Beam, how is the op being ripped off? I guess you ignored the part about
it being free?

The dealer is obviously responding to some specific complaint. It might be
helpful to know what specifically is going wrong with the brakes that keeps
bringing it back. Noises, judder, worn down, etc.?

ok, the repetition is a rip-off. there's no way this work is necessary
if the dealer is halfway competent, and is deliberate exploitation if
they're not.

that's not obvious. the op doesn't say so.

indeed. but again, we don't know. to me, the op sounds like the kind
of person that responds to dealer "inspection" offers. last time i
bought new, i was deluged with b.s. from the dealer trying to tell me i
"urgently" needed to take advantage of various "free" inspections,
ultra-short service schedules, etc. if they're susceptible to
suggestion like this, they're going to get the hose every time. a buddy
of mine is on his 3rd complete new braking system in only 45k miles
courtesy of san francisco honda. apparently he needs a new catalyst for
$900 too - excluding labor. it's a joke.

I too have had brake issues....05 CRV. Complained of vibration when
braking...was told all four rotors warped...Find it strange because
vehicle has <29k miles on it and this is not my 1st car.....did not
change driving habits...do not ride brakes in traffic or constantly
brake hard....was told this was a ware-and-tair item and thus not
covered under warranty......
