    No its not necessary ..... Mechanics do this automatically to earn 500 rupees. Correct way is to measure discs thickness and uniformity against oem defined values. If it is within range then no need of turning discs. Once it is out of the defined range , best practice is to replace discs but since its an expensive item so turning is done for unform thickness and smoothness. Gud mechanics do this with help of a micrometer screw guage. So find a gud mechanic for this job. If u can use a screw guage urself then tell machinist to turn it as per ur own value. Defined values for vitz will be available on internet. Google it. My advice to u , dont let the mechanic to turn ur discs until u measure them coz unnecessary turning damages ur rotors. Hope this answer helps.

    yeah, tooling is bad, sometimes new pads will fix the wobbling, just break them in nicely

    Exactly if the car wobbles then you need to fixed it with the help of tool

    but my problem is not about the wobbling or anything

    my problem is when in the morning i slowly put the brake pedal it makes noise like something is not grip properly like gram gram but on the other side if car runs for 10 - 15 min then there is no noise coming from any of the wheel
    now the problem is very minor but it irrates me alot just to make thing more clear i had changed the disc pad and put the original toyota disc pad but stil the problem is there

    one more thing the problem came few days back when there was heavy rain and car traveled too much in the rain then this problem arise after been driven on rain

    now anyone help me the matter

    Get shims installed ..... Ur pads are slipping when forced against the discs on light foot. This will not be happening if u apply brakes with pressure. Had same problem with my civic, shims solved it. Slipping pads usually occurs on worn out pads or non oem pads coz they dont fit in properly due to difference in size, thickness etc
