I Own A 2008 honda civic (purchased New) With Under 25, 000 Miles. I Immediately Had To Have To Rotors Resurfaced When I Took Delivery Of The Vehicle…as I Was Driving Home, I Could Feel The Brakes Pulsating When I Applied The Brakes. I Returned To The Dealer And They Had To Resurface The Rotors Then. After That, The First Problem I Had Was With The Rear Wheel Bearings And The Left Rear Brakes (pads, Caliper, Rotor). At Approximately 18k Both Rear Wheel Bearings Needed To Be Replaced, The Left Rear Caliper Was Frozen, The Pads Were Worn Due To That And The Rotor Needed To Be Resurfaced. The Repairs Were Covered Under Warranty And No Explanation Could Be Given As To A Reason For The Premature Wear. At Approximately 20k, I Had To Have The Front Rotors Resurfaced (both Right And Left) Due To Premature/uneven Wear). Unfortunately, This Was Done By My Own Mechanic During Routine Maintenance And Is Not Documented By honda (i Spoke To honda And Was Told It Was Most Likely Due To “driver/road Conditions And There Was No Way To Tell Since It Was Not Repaired By A Dealer). Recently, I Noticed The parking Brake Sticking/freezing And Brought The Car In For Service. The Brake Pads On The Right Rear, Were Unevenly/prematurely Worn And The Caliper Was Frozen. Both Rear Rotors Had To Be Resurfaced Again! These Repairs Were Also Covered Under Warranty, But Again, No Explanation Could Be Given As To What Keeps Causing This Premature Wear Of The Brakes. Also, This Morning, The “side Air Bag Off” Indicator Light Came On And Now Needs To Go Back For Service Again (2nd Time In A Week). *tr
