Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu
Rotors are a part of the disc brake braking system, and they warp due to a number of things. And the amount they warp ranges from very little, to quite a bit, so much so that you can feel the warpage in the brake pedal when you stop.
They can cost from $20.00 to $150.00 per rotor, depending on the vehicle. They can be turned at the auto repair shop for about $10.00 per rotor. There is 1 rotor per wheel. Turning them gives you a new rotor for all intents and purposes, but once turned, depending on how much was turned off, they cannot be turned again. So a badly warped rotor might can be turned, or might be too warped to be turned. A slightly warped rotor might can be turned again.

Tips for a great answer:
- Simply put, dealers are not always the most honest. Warped rotors is a very serious event. They warped from heat and a fair amount of it at that. The issues causing this should have been immediately addressed.
- Lathing them down is a ridiculous concept in this case. They should have sent those rotors off for a quality inspection and the issue fixed as well as your rotors replaced. Perhaps at a cost but they were grossly negligent putting lives at risk. I would consider filing a complaint and never use them again.
