I have asked about this on the facebook page with good advice however, i am hoping someone as experienced this. I replaced my original brakes and rotors. I used duralast gold rotors and their ceramic pads. I followed instructions and have changed them before on other vehicles with no problem. I also did remove the sliding pin bushings as they were swelled and sticking. Now I have "record grooving" on both rotors. I still have to take it apart but snow is falling so I haven't had a chance.

That usually happens when cheap brake pads are used. Nothing can really be done about it, and it won't necessarily hurt anything. All you can do is run this set out and replace with a better quality set of brakes and rotors next time.

Thats what we were thinking on FB. Lol someone said maybe because the pads are harder then the rotors. Guess I should have went with semi metallic

That sounds about right. I usually try to buy the best pads possible as I have found any pads lower than that tend to eat the rotors. Semi-Metallic actually in my experience eats the rotors more.

groves in rotor are usually on off road cars and have debris stick inside the pag and rotor area. Now since you dont off road it cheap pads can have some hard spots. Duralast gold hase a long replacement warranty. Go back and show them it chewed up rototrs too and they may warrenty them.

I've never seen grooving too bad on Cruze rotors. I was impressed enough with how clean and how long the OE pads lasted on my son's '12 Eco, that I paid $80 another set of OE pads at 80,000 miles. The pads still had lots of meat left, but the rotors had lots of corrosion/pitting on the inboard wear surface and were making a lot of noise during high speed stops.
