3. Brake Rotors
As part of normal wear and tear of owning a vehicle, 3.6 percent of drivers reported having to replace their brake rotors in the 2013 Vehicle Dependability Study. That’s a 0.6 percent improvement over last year which could be attributed to more efficient brake calipers and pads being used by automakers. Or perhaps all those hybrids and EVs roaming the streets just can’t get fast enough to really wear down their brakes.
