#7 of 16 Warped Discs and Drums 2005 Sentra
Apr 30, 2009 (6:25 pm)
Has anyone experienced problems with their drums and discs warping? I have had a brake problem on my 2005 Sentra. Problem started at about 12,000Km (all 4), when Brakes are serviced, you don't notice the problem as much. Dealer says they warped due to heat need to be machined to fix the problem, I think it's a manufacturers defect and arguing that the dealer needs to replace under warranty which expires next year. I haven't come across any recalls . Anyone else experience this problem??

Somewhere I did read about a recall on the master cylinder. You might want to check into that.

There may be a leak at the seal in the master cylinder that allows fluid to enter the brake booster assembly.
. Go to nhtsa.gov for more information.

Does anyone else have their rear brakes make a howling noise when they are in reverse while braking (ie: while reversing from a parking spot)?
It's really noticable like a ringing from a vibration or something like it. it can be quite loud inside the car. All stopping functions are fine. It's just noisy occasionally.

I have 2007 Sentra with now 50K miles. Took in for routine pad replacement at my mechanic of 15 years who's done many on other vehicles. He put on Wagner pads. Within 3 weeks, rotors warped. Took back, resurfaced rotors, replaced pads, 3 weeks later, rotors warped with louder noise than before. Took back, replaced everything including pins with all Nissan parts, resurfaced rotors. 1 week later, noisy rotors again, but not as loud as earlier, but then, it's only been 1 week. Mechanic didn't charge me for all the labour, only parts, but that has ran me 150$ extra. Now he saws rotors must be replaced for another chunk of change. I'm trading the car in. Never in my life have I had a car that had anything other than a few squeals with new brake pads. What's the deal?

After having driven numerous rental 2013 Sentras, I've noticed that the brake pedal are pretty crappy...spongy and go almost to the floor. Noticed this on nearly new ones and others with over 8k on the odo...I work moving rental cars here in South Florida. Wonder why the brakes are so crappy in these particular vehicles? All the new Altimas I drive, a bunch, don't seem to have this same issue and I remember my '03 GXE having pretty sucky brakes also. What gives?
