Brakes serve as your Lexus’s initial line of defense, ensuring safety on the road. This makes regular brake inspections crucial to your Lexus’s optimal operation. When you visit our Service Center for routine maintenance, such as an oil change, our expert technicians will comprehensively examine various components, including your brakes. This inspection includes assessing wear, checking brake fluid levels, measuring brake pad/shoe thickness, inspecting for potential leaks, examining calipers and their components, verifying anti-lock brake sensors, and testing hardware to make any necessary adjustments.
Lexus recommends having your brake pads replaced approximately every 50,000 miles. However, individual mileage may vary based on lifestyle demands and driving habits. Hard braking, exposure to road debris, and inadequate brake maintenance can contribute to a shortened lifespan of brake pads. When you choose the Lexus of Sarasota Service Center, our skilled technicians will thoroughly inspect your brake system to ensure optimal performance and address potential issues.
Various signs may indicate that your Lexus brake pads are worn and require inspection or replacement. Look out for common warning signals such as a spongy or hard-to-press brake pedal, squealing or grinding noises during braking, your vehicle pulling to one side, noticeable shaking in the steering wheel or brake pedal when applying brakes, and the illumination of the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) warning lights. If you observe any of these indicators, we recommend scheduling service at the Lexus of Sarasota Service Center.

Vibrations, shakes, and jitters are all common warning signs that your brake rotors are warped. If you're experiencing any of these things, you should bring your car in immediately for maintenance if it’s still safe to drive. Warped rotors may need to be either ground down to working order or replaced.
There are small, metal hairs at the bottom, which make loud noises. If you hear squealing or scraping, it means that your brakes are nearly out of gripping material.
Brake fluid helps transfer the movement and force created when you press down on the brake pedal.
Getting your brake pads inspected and changed is important to not only help maintain your vehicle’s performance but also for your safety. Over time your pads wear down from use, and if you start to hear squealing, rattling, or grinding, you should have your brakes looked at immediately.
