1997 Chrysler LHS Owner Comments

problem #4

Oct 151999

At 38,430 miles the rotors were so warped that at 60 mph at hard braking if you were not expecting it and holding on tight the steering wheel could twist out of your hands. The problem was corrected at my expense. Now at 49,650 the problem is starting again. The car has not had hard use and why should the brakes encounter such a problem at such low mileage? this is obviously a Chrysler defect and they should be responsible for correction and refunds to the consumer for previous work. In looking at the past web history on the car I find other notes where people have experienced the same low mileage problems. Something needs to be done.

Front brake rotors rusted, causing warping, and resulting in extended stopping distance. The dealer has replaced the rotors.

  • miles
At 32800 miles original rotors warped and were replaced. At 42800, the 2nd rotor set warped. In both cases, I was driving on Washington's beltway, and had to stop fast (not a panic stop) from 50mph to 0. (no contact was made with other car) after I rounded a curve. The rotors warped again and caused the car to vibrate. The rotors' design is inadequate. What would happen if I had to make more than one hard stop before the brakes had a chance to cool off? I don't understand the summary as recorded below.
