Default Rotors

I have a 99 Accord EX V6 with 80000 miles. I had to replace the rotors at
about 40K and 65,000 miles. I just brought it in for a transmission fluid
change and general look. They have told me that I have rust on the outside
edge of the rotors again and that they will have to be replaced shortly.
This is a very reputable dealer so I know it is not them and that this is a
problem. I told them that this would be the 3rd set of rotors and that I do
not expect I should have to replace them once again. They said they see a
lot of this.

Anyone else have this problem?
Also, a Honda dealer did the work so should their be some type of guarantee
on the parts (OEM)?

Thanks

I'de go to a brake shop for a free inspection, and have the rotors measured,
as alot of rotors have rust on the edges where the pads don't make contact,
on the rotor.

I would expect that the rotors should last at lease 80 K. At 50K my brake
pads were still in good shape.

Yes, they see a lot of this becase ALL ARE LIKE THAT if you are talking
about the circunference of the rotor. As long as the rust is not "eating"
chuncks of your rotors, they are ok. Just think about it, it's bare metal,
gets exposed to the weather.

Yes, they see alot of this - referring to people who are separated from
their money very easily. I drive hard and fast, 3 Honda Del Sols. All of
them are over 100K and there is no hint of the requiring new rotors. They
got new brake pads of course in due course, but not rotors. Of course they
look rusty, they are carbon steel that has been exposed to the weather -
duh. Apply the brakes a couple of times and voila, shiny again.

Holy cow are you getting screwed! Rust? Jesus, they all rust on the outer
edges. Unless your brakes are pulsing when you try to stop, they are
probably good. I just changed them on a 92 with 165,000 on them!

The new ones had rust in a week.

Holy crap this pisses me off when I hear this.

Just goes to show that you have blind faith in a "reputable dealer". that's
like santa claus, they don't bloody well exist... a scam is a scam is a
scam... shoot the wanking dealers and go to an independent auto garage.

go to a shop that specializes in brake repair..... i have rust on the
outside lip of my 93 taurus for the past 10 yrs... its normal... raw
metal(steel) will always rust... the part that the pad goes onto and the
rotor spins will not have rust as the pad has been rubbing it off the
past X miles you been driving it.... it is not a problem with rust on
the unused portion of the rotor, just like the underside of cars with
rear ends being rust on the outside of its case... even new cars on the
dealership lot will have rust on then like on the rear ends, the brake
calipers(part not used)......
