Default Re: 03 SE brake scoring

MDT Tech (Rick),

Somehow on a new vehicle, I do not see this as normal. It may be normal to
you since you have seen these on a number of Camry SE's as you mentioned.
However the fact remains that a new car should not have this level of
scoring when the front disks look practically new. Either some foreign
matter is rubbing against the rotors when the brake is pressed or there is
some part defect. If that was my car, I would not accept the view of
scoring as normal. I have to say in the past I have agreed to and
appreciated your comments on various issues, but this time I think there is
more to this problem then just normal wear and tear.

I was going by the visual, I have no idea how deep. I have seen all the
brakes score, They add more metal to give you more braking power while
keeping the size small. The SE is a performance/handling version, I dont
know if the brake pads are differnt. I'd take it in and have them look
at it. But from first hand, it happens to lots, its just easier to see
with disc brakes.
