Front end shudder - warped rotors?

Of all the cars I have owned none has had more front end shudder upon braking than my 2000 OBW. Turn or replace the front rotors and all is well but only for a few months before the problem returns. Thoughts?
Same problem with my wife's 2000 Odyssey. I hate to have her spill her beer on the way home from soccer practice (I keed, I keed!)

Getting the rotors resurfaced should solve that problem, and high quality pads should help.
You might want to considered ceramic pads to help keep it from happening.

newer generation subaru's warp rotors like crazy though. my 2002 OBW is vibrating like mad now once they get heated up.
warping older generation subaru rotors almost never happens for me and i've been driving those since 1993. the newer stuff just warps more for some reason...heavier cars?

No doubt, mildy overheated pads are the source of this problem. Sure, it may be due to the discs being under-dimensioned, but you can alleviate the problem with good pads.
What's a "good pad"...topic for a whole new discussion
I would suggest looking in the ceramic materials mentioned above.....part number/ brand names anyone?
