Nope never had the issue, some people i think had issues with a wobble and found out there was an issue in some stock suspension parts.

haha -- YES

I was going to post something about this..


My 2002 manual started to shimmey and shake when on the highway slowing down from 80-60 or 60-40 -- but was fine with other stops, including panic stops.

I swung by the dealer yesterday and he immediatley said "Sounds like you've got a rotor problem -- it'll take an hour to fix, when can you bring it in..."

so I made an appointment for wednesday of next week.

i'm wondering if it is a common problem -- or is the a TSB on it? since he didn't even mention looking at it before he replaced them...

dont let the dealership try and sell you new rotors.
Its just from uneven brake pad wear.
you just need to get them machined - its like a 30 dollar fix, 15 for each rotor at pep boys.
