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.
how many miles approximately before brake pads need to be replaced? on 2007 Lexus GX470

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.
