    I agree with tan. If you are using the same size rotors and calipers, I don't see how they can claim that the rotors caused a failure in the ABS system.

    If you went in there and asked them to replace the rotors, I could understand. But if the ABS system is faulty, what rotors you have on the car wouldn't really make a difference. Again, they have to prove that any aftermarket part was the cause of the failure.

    Sometimes it takes a call to SOA to straighten it out. Talk to the service manager, and if he can't help you, ask to get in touch with a SOA rep.

    In this case, I'd raise a fuss. Rotors are wear parts.

    something I'd check are the tire pressures, if under-inflated it gives the ABS speed sensors the impression of the wheels spinning slower, if each tire has way different the pressures, it would " Confuse" the ABS system.


    That's all I can think of for possible reasons.

    That's totally fair and exactly in line with the law. If the problem is directly linked to the aftermarket part, then it is not covered under warranty. If not, it is.

    What was the final outcome?
