They warranteed it the first time at 11K miles by turning the rotors. Then it started again at 20K. I dealt with it until 30K and wanted a solution that would last so that's why I sprung for new stuff. Braking is much better than with the factory stuff It came with.

So technically they should warrantee mine at 14k cause I know its wear and tear but that's pushing it for rotors. My pads aren't even half way gone.

Typically rotors fall under wear and tear because they are a wear item. Therefore they would only warranty until 12K. But you never know until you talk to your dealer.

Rotors are 3yr/36k. Mine had the same problem right off the lot. I talked to the tech who turned them. He said he is seeing it a lot with newer cars because they sit on the lot for so long. Next time you drive by a dealership, just take a mental pic of all the cars and tricks sitting out there. My truck was built 2/13 and delivered at the end of feb to Miami. It sat until september '13 when i bought it.

2012 platinum ecoboost. Rotors started showing a small vibration at 45,000 and had them turned at the dealer at 51,000 for $120. For this mileage I feel fortunate.

I replaced a 2010 with a used 2013 with 16,000 miles on it. The 2010 did fine, brakes at 47,000( normal). As soon as I drove this 2013 I could feel the rotors need turning. Damn!

My 2012 F-150 FX4 had warped front rotors at about 24,000 miles. Here in Alaska it's easy to get snow in the brakes so I just attributed it to that. And my wife sometimes drives my truck so I thought maybe that was an issue...LOL
But after reading all of these articles it seems there may be a deeper issue.
I now have 36,000 miles and I will need to turn the front and possibly rear rotors again soon because I have a very slight shudder when braking.
I can say that the local Ford dealer rotated the tires at the last LOF change and they REALLY tightened the wheel studs! Took everything I could do to brake then loose to do some other work on the truck so that may definitely be the real issue.

Took the dealer 2 work days to get mine turned. Said they had to also turn the back side. The rep was VERY apologetic, offering a ride or a rental. No thanks, I have good friends. Ended up no charge. Let's see how long this lasts. Very smooth now.
