problem #1

  • Manual transmission
  • 19,000 miles
My 2002 Toyota Corolla had warped discs after 20,000 miles of freeway driving, no hills. Toyota resurfaced discs and said there would be no further problems. Ar 38,000 miles they warped again now Toyota says its my problem. This car is driven only on the highway. I took the car to an independent mechanic who said the brakes were in perfect condition except the warped discs and thought that Toyota should have replaced the discs at 20,000 instead of resurfacing them.
