My 2000 Sentra GXE has 20k miles. The car pulsates while braking, leading me to believe rotors are warped. If anyone has a similar problem, please let me know. I don't think I'll replace them with Nissan rotors. What are my options?

Rotats

My 2001 Maxi rotas were warped, had to have them changed 3 days after picking up the car and every 20k since then. I finally gave up and have traded for a 2003. The service people never really figured out what was causing it!

brakes

I don't think changing the rotars actually solves the problem. A mechanic told me there might be a problem with the hydraulics from the brake pump fluid causing the brakes to heat, the rotars warp as a result. I m picking up my 2003 this evening. Sure hope I don t have the same problem. Have the brakes check by some else.

Most likely the warping problem was caused by over-torqueing the lug nuts. These is something that is easily overlooked.

As for OEM replacements, you should look for rotors that are vented(ie. BREMBO). Slotted and/or x-drilled rotors will assist in off-gassing during heavy brake loads as well.

There are a number of budget rotors being offered on the internet at ridiculously cheap prices. Beware of these rotors as many are of inferior quality.

If you would like some additional information, drop me a line.
