My car is less than a year old. I recently noticed the steel effect alloy wheels are starting to pit. The garage state it is caused by brake dust and nothing can be done about it. Their answer is wash the car more often! Honda customer relations state nothing can be done under warranty. Should brake dust cause this type of problem or are Honda using the wrong compound in their brake pads? Have I any other redress - I do not wish to let this matter lie.
Yes, the answer was to wash your car and its wheels more often. Brake dust now contains metallic particles so is highly corrosive.
