Kia Sportage 2006 - Front brake discs are warpped

The front barke discs on my 2006 Sportage are warpped. This is the second time this has happened. First at 45000km and now again at 106000km. How and why does this keep happening? Each time I'm told to replace the discs which is now statrting to be a costly problem. Is this a common problem as I've never heard of it before on any other vehicle?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Warpped brakes can be a problem and can be solved. usually if they warp it is because the tires are out of balance or alignment. also when you go to change the brakes have your rotors checked to make sure those are not warped as well. if they are that will also cause the brakes to wear fast and also warp do to the friction. i would check the rotors to be safe. fiction causes heat to the brakes. and there for the brakes warp.

I had the same problem with my 2007 kia optima. Replaced the pads at about 30k, The pads tend to get stuck and not fully release from the rotor. I took mine to the dealership at around 45k and they replaced the calipers and pads under warranty. According to the dealership the rear brakes are suppose to be serviced every 15k to prevent this from happening

take your car to a brake shop and have the rotors turned if your vibration and shuddering is occurring when you actually apply the brakes.
