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
That definitely sucks that you have such a sketchy dealer. It's hard to tell if they are incompetent or if they were intentionally being misleading.

I tend to agree with the others that in your photos, the wear looks totally normal. The fact that it is identical on all four rotors is further evidence that there is no one defective part. The chances of all four corners (with front and rear having totally different design of caliper, rotor, and brake pad) would all be defective in an identical way is extremely remote.

Even mildly aggressive brake pads do score rotors in that way from my past experience. There are also plenty of people who have posted about the OEM brakes making annoying squealing noises. Mine, after 20K miles, sometimes make metallic scraping noises (typical of well toasted pads). And yet upon inspection, the pads still have some more life remaining.

When Duval Honda wanted 20k ADM for the 2017 Black CTR they had originally, I said I would never go there again. I also never went back to the one by the Avenues mall as they wanted 10k ADM. Coggin Honda on Atlantic has been very nice to me over the past 10-15 years.

It’s very obvious when the pads are rubbing on the rotors because you’ll hear “all the time”. Is that the case? Judging from the pics, they look fine. My 2018 drilled rotors looks worse actually.

I'm taking it to Coggin Honda Monday. I explained the whole situation to them.

Yes I hear then roaring on the highway. Because the pads are up against the rotors. It sounds horrible it also pulls to 1 side or the other and makes the car feel unsafe. This is not normal.

As I have stated I had a 2017 and those pads never rested on the rotors. When I bought my 2020 brand new they didn't rest on the rotors when driving.

Something is broken and has come apart. They are not functioning properly. They make roaring noises which is more prominent on the fronts than the rears. It looks like the pistons inside the calipers are over extended continuously.

It's an outrage. I just want my car fixed so I can safely drive it. The drivability is getting worse everytime I drive the car.

I'm crossing my fingers that Monday Coggin can put someone on my car that actually has experience with these cars.

I still can't believe their "master tech" as they called him claims I have separate brakes with a brake drum and brake shoes that you cannot see... I have never heard such bullshit in my life.

I showed the GM of the dealership and kept apologizing for his tech and for the damage on the car. I'm not through with them. I will take their asses to court if I have to. I run a damn shop for a living. I understand vehicles and how they work and I'm telling you this is not fucking normal.

I am so upset about all this. 😡😡😡

The sound you’re hearing is most likely a rock stick between the rock guard. It’s a common issue with a lot of these cars. It’s not a pleasant sound from what I’ve read, but is common. Once the rock or pebble dislodges itself, the sound will go away.

The “score” marks you see happen on every Civic Type R I’ve ever seen. Those actually are normal.

There is nothing wrong with your rotors.

But that would mean that all 4 brakes have malfunctioned in the exact same way.

Have you put the car on jacks and spun the wheels by hand? Have you checked the front brakes for rocks behind the rotor?

Pads will also normally appear to sit on the rotors when off the pedal. There will be an ever so slight drag if you spin by hand you can feel and hear. You don't want a gap actually. That's called pad knock back and delays the application of brakes.

Ive has 27 cars, and Ive never owned a car that the pads didn't ride on the rotors. If they didn't ride the rotors, there would be a 1/16th of an inch of pedal play, before the pads even hit the rotors.

I'd be more concerned about this than the brakes. Did they drop a dang wrench on it or something?
