robertcope could be right. It may be that pad material has been deposited on the rotors in a couple of localized spots where the rotor has come to a stop with the brakes still pressurized. The edges of the pads will tear off and leave lines of mate

I'd be worried about buying a used Civic, they seem to get beat on. Also IMO our 2001 Civic was a junker. I guess its issues weren't so bad, but it just didn't seem that great to me (endless ac problems, complete exhaust system, no ABS, etc). But

My 2000 Saturn SL was the only one to suffer warped rotors. Every 20k I'd feel it, and put it off until 25k or so when I couldn't stand it. Same driving habits as other vehicles. Actually, on my Jetta I had a set of replacement rotors warp in shor

Most likely a pad problem. Ceramic is not the best for performance and generally smoothness. http://www.bestbrakes.com/c/faq#warp

179 VI is very good, but it's borderline for what I consider to be "high" in this era. An oil doesn't get to be exceptional (VI-wise) until VI approaches 200. It's still far behind TGMO at 220+, and considering you can get TGMO at any Toy
