at least i don't. i always wash the car when cold, plus i use a bucket of water to wash it so i doubt if any water will get into the rotor area. and yes, i got warped rotor at 10k miles, turned rotors, and now at 14k it's back....Outlook said:hmm that is weird. dumb question: do u wash your car when the rotors are still hot??
you shouldn't let anyone else wash your car to begin withacuraTLao said:well what about if you take your car to a drive through car wash thing....technically you have to drive your car there and causing your rotors brake pads to heat up??
should we not take our cars to car washes?
I had the rotors turned at about 13,500 miles on my 200 with no questions asked.rominl said:well too bad that TSB is not for 02 as well...... but i am sure 02 are affected too..... coz' my damn rotors are warped again now at 14000 miles...... only 4k since they turned it last time...... fvck!
well that's good. seriously i guess your job now is to warp your rotors again asap....RAdams said:

I took my 2002 in two weeks ago for the same problem (about 14,20 miles) and they turned the rotors and replaced the front pads -- again, no questions asked. (As an aside, I'm about 600 miles into the new pads and they seem to dust a LOT less than the previous ones)
The only downside is that once a rotor is machined, it's more likely to warp even quicker than it did before. To quote the [former] service manager at my servicing dealer: "We'll machine them for you, but they're gonna warp again. Then we'll machine them again, but they'll warp even quicker. After that, we'll have to give you new ones."
