Question about Chevrolet Malibu
Hi, Is the rust on the working surface of the rotors ( where the pads make contact ) if so that rust
which usually is from rain will clean off as you use the brakes.
If the rust is on the hub of the rotor or the webbing for the cooling system ( slots built into rotors fof cooling purposes ) These areas get rusty quite early in the life of the rotors and in my experience
will not have any efect on the life of the rotor.
With regards to the rotor being worn, the rotors will have about 1/8th in. or more grove before they need replacing ( this is 1/8th in. grove on inside and outside so the thickness of the rotor is 1/4 in.
thinner than its new size ).
So with the low milege you have done i would say your rotors are fine unless u can see the wear
which i`ve said about
Hope i have been of some help to you
