Took mine in and Lexus of Sacramento didn't do squat! They just did the safety latch and adjusted my lights. Next time.

Do you park outside at night? It may have a lot to do with the very humid air in Florida.

Ya, always outside, but is that really an excuse? If it is legit then I am cool with that.

Iron and water don't mix well.

Over the past 2 months I had the front pad tsb done. Did not fix the problem. So they replaced the rotors last week. Still squeak coming to a stop but at much slower speed and occur half as often as before. Lexus definitely did not do a great job with the F sport brakes.

And I keep my car in the garage.

Let's also isolate this some more. It seems to be RWD owners, moreso than AWD.

The 3GS also had awful brake problems, which weren't really fixed until the 4GS came out....so hoping for a solution is fruitless.

Default New pads

SEEMS LIKE THERE IS A NEW PAD FOR THE F SPORT ISSUE AS OF 5 WEEKS AGO SO I HEAR.

I Had the noise but not only that massive pulsation etc. My rotors also looked extremely scarred. I took it in and told them it is a big issue on the Lexus blogs. They said they may not be able to do anything. I talked to the manager and told him the issue as well and showed him the rotors. They called me back a few days later and told me they got the green light to change the pads. The rotors as well if past a certain point. Got it all done just last week. Rids great. Same dust but much smoother. No squeaking yet either.

For those with the squeak issue I would be more pushy with the dealer. They have to do it. Rather get it done now than after warranty.

FYI Bendix (the company who makes make of the OEM brakes on the market) has the back ceramic Low Dust brake pads for the REAR WHEEL FSPORT. The part # is 1391. They are working on the fronts but no release date yet. Akebono is also working on a front set but no release date yet.

Just an update. After 3k miles the squeak on the new rotors mostly went away. It does it occasionally but very very faint now. I have to really pay attention to hear. I'm pretty happy so far.

Last night standing near my garage I heard my neighbor two houses away come home in his 2010 911S. I can hear a squeak much louder than mine (when it does squeak) so I think it's just the nature of performance brakes.

After getting mine fixed last weekend the horrible squeaking I had for over a year is totally gone, I drive 2,500 miles monthly in traffic many times and the squeaking was helarious to say the least, glad to see it resolved my issue.

Noticed that many others seemed to have issues with brakes squeaking on their Lexus GS (F Sport). I just had my brakes replaced with 15K service. When I got it back, the brakes were squeaking about 70% of the time when applied. Took it Santa Monica Service Center who initially said that is just the way they are. Now I'm being told that they actually have had a company-wide discussion about this, as it has been an issue for many GS owners. The result? I can get brakes replaced with pads that do not squeak for an extra $300. Curious what others think as I believe this shouldn't be passed down to owners at all.

300 for rotors and pads I believe is acceptable, but 300 for just pads I don't think it is acceptable
