What is the sound of one piston slapping?

Illustration for article titled I am frustrated. Brakes.

15,700 miles and I think my rotors are slightly warped. Braking over halfway full from 60-65 produces an ever so slight vibration. Nothing bad, but it’s there. It doesn’t shake the steering wheel but I can feel it all the same.


There are two things that can cause this: heat and over tightening their lug nuts. Neither of which has happened in excess as far as I know. Sigh.

At least I know a local shop that can turn the rotors. We had to have my wife’s CX-5's rotors turned at 30k and I attributed it to her driving. Now, I’m not so sure.
