Are brake rotors warranty on 08

Went to dealer today for a pulsating brake pedal, have 2 seized calipers but he says that the rear rotors are also warped and the front ones have rusted out. No kidding the calipers didn't work, I think the remaining rotors warped because of the extra heat caused by two wheels not braking.
What is under warranty, he days pads and rotors are not covered but calipers are.
Truck has 30000 miles

Thanks

Yeah normally pad and rotors are not covered because they fall under the normal wear and tear. Unless they fail in short amount of time like a couple thousand miles, if you got to pay for them anyways look into some cross drilled and slotted rotors to help with the warping next time

Thats annoying.... clearly the rears are over-worked / warped for the same reason the fronts are rusty and under-used. If they admit the calipers were seized, how much more is it to realize the rears were ruined for the same reason? They can't admit that? I'd try to work with them (complain) even though pads/rotors are not warranty items.
