Brake replacement needed every 40,000

2003 Lexus LS 430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


I absolutely adore the LS 430. I owned an Explorer pre LS and I will never go back. Maintenance on my LS 430 is less than I paid on my Ford! It drives like a dream in town & the hwy. The gas mileage is pretty good for the wt of the vehicle and everyone is always comfortable. I feel very safe and secure & do not worry about being stranded. I put a set of brakes on front and rear at 34,000 and now at 76,500 they are telling me I need front and rear brakes again. Leaves me wondering-shouldn't brakes last longer. I am not a 2 ft driver nor do I slam the brakes at stops.The other issue I have is the trunk will not stay open on its own. Other than these two issues I am SOLD on this brand.

Brakes are hard to tell how long they lasts. It is how you drive that determine when you need new brakes. I have two vehicles one a 2007 Toyota Highlander V-6 that requires front and rear brakes every 30,000 miles. My other vehicles is a 2001 Lexus RX 300 that requires new brakes (front and rear) every 69,000 miles. I guess You are using original equipment brakes pads
