2010 Toyota Camry

Dear Doctor: I recently purchased a new 2010 Camry with four-wheel disc brakes. I noticed the rotors looked rusted. The car stops well. Then I saw another car parked next to me in a parking lot with the same rusted rotors. Can I assume this is common with all cars? Ira

Dear Ira: Brake rotors will rust under certain conditions, especially when they get wet and the car is not driven often. Some rotors will rust and take more driving to clean the rust off. After a car wash it is always advisable to drive the vehicle a few miles to dry off both the brake rotors and pads. The rust is more often than not a very normal condition.
