When I took my 02 Honda Accord in for its last service (not Honda) I had a very bad vibration in the steering wheel when braking which was obviously brake related. The shop told me that the front rotors were warped and when they checked their records they saw that these rotors had previously been replaced by them and were still under warranty. Thus no charge for me.
Fast forward to now, and about ready to go in for the next regular service and in the last month I have noticed that the car is developing a similar vibration as per before.
Should I be concerned that the same symptoms are coming back so soon (after less than 4000 miles with around 140k on the clock)?
Are there other explanations to a vibration in the steering wheel that changes proportionally with speed (and only occurs when braking)?
Should I approach my repair shop with other than "There is vibration in the steering wheel when braking, again"
FWIW my car is driven occasionally around town, but mainly I tend to use it a lot more for 200 mile trips of continuous freeway driving at 70+ mph
