That's cool I thought the pad outline was a rust spot. My 2012 van suffers this problem with 30k miles been living with it. My mustang somehow avoided it.

one thing I could never work out was the Australian falcons are known for getting "warped rotors" really easy, yet ive owned a few and never had any issue and I used my brakes harder than most haha. but I always followed proper break in procedures, not just slapped them on and "she'll be right"
