Rotor question

I have an 08 V6 with 20000 miles on it. I had some tire work done & the shop had me look @ the drivers side rear rotor. It was rough & they said it needs to be turned before it destroys the pads. The passenger side is smooth as can be. Is this normal after only 20000 miles and one side? And should the dealer fix this under warranty?

That is usual for a ford, but brakes is not going to be covered under your warrenty. If your rotors are bad and needed turned, your brake pads are going to be grooved because they form to the contour of your rotors. So you are going to have to change them also.

It also depends on your type of driving.
City driving, fast and heavy stoping.
Brakes can go out faster just depends on who was using it. Also the type of pad.
