    Default Brake disc machining at every brake service?

    From the past few months or more Honda dealers have started machining the brake discs whenever they service your car brakes....well as far as i know it isnt necessary until and unless disc really required that turning....what do you guys think??....experts what do u say??

    Most disc brake rotors have a minimum thickness warning written on them. As long as your discs are thicker than that value i think you are ok.

    I am not an expert tho. Wait for the senior members to come and give their valuable input.

    You don't have to machine the disc rotors on every brake service until and unless the rotors are severely damaged due to total worn out brake pads and ultimately the metal under brake pads grind against the rotor and produces grooves on smooth surface of rotor. If such situation is not happened with your car then there is no need to machine the rotors whatsoever. Who ever telling you to do it is fooling you. So beware from such mechanics...

    Yupp...surprising is that this has been practicing Honda authorised dealers these days....just to empty the maximum of customer's pocket...all the time they come up to me and said " sir aap ki car k brake discs ki machining ho gi"....i say " kion bhai kion ho gi"...they say " woh sir karna parti hai jab bhi hum brake service kartay hain".......i always straightly refuse to do so....never ever allow them to tool the discs...amazing is that my car is just 31k km done...😊

    There is more reason to get brake rotor/disc machined is that if your car wobbles or vibrates while braking then it means that one of discs has become unbalanced. In this case u need machining otherwise no need to do it at all.

    You only need machining if you the discs are visibly deformed. Otherwise it is just a waste of money and life of discs.

    Mechanics also bug people to replace the brake pads even when their life is more than 50%
