Brake Pad Replacement Frequency on '07 IS

I drive an '06 IS but I have a friend that drives an '07 with about 94,000 miles and, to his knowledge, the brake pads have never been replaced. That seems insane to me so I've been reading up on...

I knew a Lexus owner that changed his every 40,000 but he was a mechanic who did it himself. He also drove like a maniac.

Yeah, that's pretty severe. I wonder if the people who couldn't press hard enough to start had experienced the problem earlier and it worsened. Either way, I'm with you on fixing it. Sounds like a...

Not been impacted by this issue but if it occurs, does it get worse with time until it is fixed or is it typically just a minor annoyance that doesn't have a larger scale impact?

I've had the issue too but I always thought I was just accidentally breaching the airlock on the pump itself. The video's got me wanting to look into this more. Thanks for sharing, Mrfix!

I don't think it's a major issue but I definitely think it's from your Dad skipping the premium. Accidents happen but hopefully he tosses you some coin for the trouble.

Damn, you can't beat a freshly cleaned black car. That is a luxury I can't afford in LA between the heat and the dust. Enjoy it!

The only thing that would suck more than doing that 3 or 4 times would be the amount of cash you'd have to pay for labor for how long it would take the dealer to do it!
