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

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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.
