Transmission and Brakes
By Alabama Gal on


2002 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


My brakes had to be replaced at around
15,000 miles due to warped rotors.
This also meant replacing the tires.
Fortunately Lexus covered the cost. I
just had them replaced again at 39,500
miles, at my cost. Was told that the
area I live in is to blame since it is
slightly mountainous. My husband has
70,000 miles on an 02 Yukon and has
never had brake problems. I also would
have like a smoother shift in the
transmission. They did the computer
changeover, but it is no better. When I
took it in last I was told the brake
replacement at 14K+ was a recall. When
I called Lexus I was told there had
never been a recall on the 02 Lexus.
