I brought my 2015 Lexus NX200t to the dealer for a tire change. I asked them to check the brakes while doing so.
I was surprised to get a 2,100$ (Cnd$) bill when I came to pick up the car. They informed me that they changed all brakes and disks.
I have 42,000 km on the car. I checked my breaks twice a year to avoid this situation.
I knew the brakes needed to be changed, but the disks…at 42,000 km…mmmmmmm
i feel like i have been ripped off, but don’t know enough about cars.
My pads were at 2mm. which means that there was no steel to steel contact with the disks…they told me that they found "spots’’ on the disks. When i asked to see the disks as I was not convinced that they needed changing, they informed me that they wouldn’t be able to determine which they were as they put them with other disks they changed during the same day.
what are your thoughts…
