Smile thank you

Thank you sooooo much for this info on TSB's. I printed the one for the rotors TSB 16-002 - Front Brake Noise and/or Front Brake Judder and scheduled an appointment at my dealer. I took a printed copy of the TSB to them at the time I dropped the car. They installed new rotors and pads on my 2015 RDX without giving me any problems. The service tech even congratulated me on doing the research! LOL

I am just floored that the brake issue is still prevalent AFTER the initial TSB came out that it is applicable to late 2016-2018 model. So its obvious that the later year models will most likely have the proper dated rotors and all they will do is machine the rotors and replace pads. That will just delay the inevitable that the problem will come back and hopefully it will make it past warranty. They can improve the rotor so that this is eliminated. May cost a bit more in the front end, but then the owner will not have face this problem over and over for those that keep their cars for long periods. This problem occurrred at 15K miles on my 15 RDX. So when this happens again to my RDX, all they will do is machine the rotor. Quality of parts is lacking with Honda.
When they machine the rotor on newer models, it will happen even sooner.
Just think of the poor owners that are not even aware of this TSB. They are probably living with it and paying out of pocket.

I agree with you completely. My 2015 which I bought certified pre-owned with 15K had the rotors machined before they put it out for sale. I bought it and within a few months it happened again. Luckily I found the TSB, printed it and took it to the dealer. They replaced rotors and pads for free under the TSB and so far the issue has been resolved. But you're right, the poor souls who don't know will be ripped of a few hundred dollars by the dealer or whoever for getting this issue fixed. It's not right or fair on Honda's part.

These TSBs were INCREDIBLY helpful. I was able to get both the TC judder and rear suspension noise taken care of without issue.

Got a transmission software update with ATF flush and new rear shocks.

Thanks again!
