GM will probably be glad to replace your old, crappy OEM rotors with another set of new, crappy OEM rotors. Maybe getcha past the 36000 mile warranty expiration, and what then? Better to just upgrade.
Funny, when I read Road & Track and other car mags long-term tests, they calculate the % brake pad left after putting 40K miles on the test car. On quality cars, fronts are usually calculated for about 60K miles, and rears at or over 100K miles. Not the rotors, mind you, the PADS. A decent rotor should be able to be turned at least twice before it is too thin and for safety reasons should be replaced. If someone tells you your rotors can't be turned at least twice, they are trying to screw you into buying new rotors when they aren't needed.
Anyone have their rotors turned with or without new pads? Did it fix the problem?
