Plugged Rotors


Vehicle Information: Year: 2000; Engine (type, size, modifications): Std 3.2L, no mods.; Total Mileage: 30000; Transmission: Manual;

Took my car in for an oil change and the invoice came back with the following note on it:"Ownwer advised that the vehicle will be in need of replacement front and rear brake pads and wear sensors by next service. Also notified that drilled rotors are plugged with brake material and debris which need to be drilled and dressed."My question does not concern the potential need for pad repalcement. I have the factory workshop manuals and they are very specific about required pad thickness. I am wondering about this "plugging" situation. The car has never been tracked or autocrossed. Is this something that is routinely seen, and what is the proscribed cure for it?
