2007 Lexus GX470 Question: how many miles approximately before brake pads need to be replaced?

 

Question

Visitor, 4.7L V8, Carle Place, NY, June 04, 2010, 07:32

I am leasing my truck - it is 3 years old. I drive less than 7K a year (i commute by train to work everyday) and my car has less than 25k miles on it. when i took it to get inspected, i was told my front and back pads are shot and i'm not passing inspection. I was shocked b/c i have never had to replace breaks before a lease was up.

    The GX470 is quite heavy and brake pad wear is so subjective to the driver's braking habits and vehicle use. I have seen our customers get 25 to 40,000 miles out the brake pads.
