Rusting brake rotors

Seems that the brake rotors on my 2017 Fpace literally rusted out with 50,000 kms on them, has anyone had a similar issue? My, new rotors are now starting to rust as well

What do you mean rusted out? Rotors are iron… they rust

yes I’m fully aware… the rotors essentially rotted out, it wasn’t just surface rust that disappears following breaking, it looked as if the pads on all four wheels did not cover the entire face of the rotor

You’re right, that doesn’t sound good, welcome to the forum.

Do you have any fotos of this rusted-out rotor?

Never heard of such.

Have you been using it to back your boat down the ramp into seawater ? :slightly_smiling_face:

I once nearly bought an (aluminium bodied) Landrover Defender, but the chassis was rusted. Good thing I checked.

Many people use their SUV for boating or beach driving in my neck of the woods

LOL! nope no seawater where I live,good thought though

I too would love to see a picture of the rusted out rotors. My daughter has an early f-pace and I would like to check for potential problems.
