Hi Everyone,

I bought my K5 Gt-line in Jan and I’m at 8700 miles and my wheel is already starting to shake when I brake at 60+. I assume its my rotors from experience but with the car being so new I’m a little baffled as to why they will fail so early. Has anyone else had these issues?

Heat Stress can happen at any age on rotors, especially now, as they aren't made to a thicker spec than they used to be. A lot of rotors these days are barely made above Discard Spec as most people replace everything when they do brake jobs.

Warped rotors here at 18k. This is a first for me on any vehicle. It’s also the first car with adaptive cruise that brakes for us about 90% more than we normally would. In all my years of driving, I’ve never brakes and slowed coming up to a vehicle o the interstate unless I could not get in the passing lane.
