2018 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport
Got my Civic Hatchback Sport about a month ago and the car only has 600 miles on it, and I don't drive it hard at all. After one rain storm, the rear rotors accumulated some rust (which I know is normal), but for some reason the rust is not coming off completely. It almost looks like the rust is smearing on. I had a 2015 honda accord before this Civic and the rust would come off those rotors completely after about 5 minutes of driving. I have pictures of the Civic's rotors before and after the rust. Anyone else experiencing the same? What do you think? Thank you

Mine too. Unfortunately, this is normal. Although, after driving where you have to use the brakes a sufficient number of times, most of it should come off. If the rotors have grooves and the rust doesn't come off, I would ask the dealer to check them.

it's raw metal exposed to the open

of course it's going to have surface rust

slam on the brakes if you want a deep cleaning

Its' normal just use your breaks and it goes away. Everytime I wash my car that happens, go for a drive, use the brakes, and it's all gone.
