I took it to Duval Honda in Jacksonville.

They tell me that the rotors have normal wear even though all 4 rotors are damaged. But it's normal.

Then I was told my Type R has Brake Drums and Brake shoes like the old cars. But you can't see it. Apparently it's invisible??? Harry Potter Brakes wtf?

My seat makes popping noises and has a loose bracket but oh that's normal too even though they can replicate it.

Unless something has changed I'm unaware of....

I mean come on dude. Fix my car and give it back to wtf.

I don't think I'd worry about the scoring on the rotors. They are performance brakes, which leads to increased wear, noise, and dust.

Have to say I would certainly be afraid of any dealer that would tell you that you have drum brakes on that car.

My car is garage kept. Ceramic coated. I take very good care of it.

It is not normal. I have had a 2017. The brake pads are NOT supposed to sit on the rotors when you are driving down the road. They never "lift" off of the rotor. My 2017 never had scoring like this. Plus a few days ago I heard a very bad metallic metal on metal sound. Something is wrong with the car. I know all about these cars. I've driven these for 3 years.

I can't believe the hacks they have working at these stealerships.

I am so pissed.

You sure you’re not hearing the electronic wastegate upon decel? I thought it was my brakes too, but isn’t.

I'm gonna have to agree with other posters. Without hearing the sound, your photos seem like normal rotor wear and it looks like normal usage. The rotors on all my cars look like that.

As far as the dealer telling you have drum brakes on the rear...for the love of god go to another dealer cause that is concerning.

The scoring is normal. Where the pad is touching the edge of the rotor doesn't look normal, so I would check that to be sure.
As far as the seat goes, check the bolts yourself.

Agree with everyone else. Don't go back to the dealer that told you it has drum brakes. I don't see anything alarming about the rotor wear. Seems normal. My 2020 isn't much better and I only have 800 miles.

That "scoring" is 100% normal.

A loose seat bracket and a dealership said it is normal? I find that one hard to believe. Did you drop a purse or wallet underneath your seat?

I once had a Mazda dealership argue with me that I didn’t need 6 sparkplugs for my MX-3 because it was a 1.8l and there is no such thing as a V6 that small. I had to drag the guy out to the car and make him count the plugs.

brakes don’t look bad but you will always find a knucklehead at a dealership that doesn’t know shit

I get that these cars have minor rotor wear. But It looks much worse in person. Something has literally "CUT" into the rotors. All 4 rotors are identical. You can feel the grooves in it. This is not superficial.

On top of everything else they damaged my $2500 ceramic coat and my bumper. This place has been an absolute nightmare.

I understand what everyone is saying but the rotors should not have this type of damaged. They are damaged not just general wear
