The Mitsubishi Eclipse braking system is a product of fine Japanese engineering, and generally will last for many years and tens of thousands of miles. However, even the best braking systems will experience wear and tear when abused and subject to hard use - such as city driving (if you've ever delivered pizza or driven a cab, you know what I'm talking about. It's easy to take our brakes for granted until they start sounding off, or the brake pedal starts to go "mushy." Although all parts of the Mitsubishi Eclipse brake system are important, the brake rotor is the central component, because it's what the calipers grab onto in order to stop the vehicle.
Resembling a metal disk, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Brake Rotor could be the last part of your brake system you'll need to replace, provided your brake pads and calipers are serviced when needed. Eventually - probably around 100,000 miles or so - you'll start to notice a whining or squealing noise as you apply the brakes.
It's easy to dismiss this as a minor annoyance, but it should not be ignored. The "pincer" movement of the calipers against these pads is what slows the wheels, eventually stopping the vehicle.
When you replace your brake pads, you should consider having the rotor professionally resurfaced by qualified personnel in a reputable machine shop. If your rotor should be damaged or faulty, however, be sure to replace it with a genuine Mitsubishi Eclipse Brake Rotor.We offer special low pricing on factory authorized Mitsubishi parts, and back it up with this guarantee: if you find what you're looking for elsewhere online for a lower price, we will meet or beat it!
