problem #1

Feb 222012

LS 460 8-cyl

  • 38,500 miles
Braking, at times, is irregular, during normal operating conditions. Feels as if the braking system is misreading data. Took car to Lexus dealer about 2-2.5 months ago and told rotors were a bit warped. Dealer turned rotors and said everything should be fine. Problem did not fully resolve. About a week ago, noticed same issues and returned to dealer who informed me that the rotors needed turning again and that they could see a depression on one rotor made from the brake pad. I was informed that the rotors can get hot in traffic and I likely pressed too hard on them in traffic. However, this occurred during the months of mid-February through April and climate has been moderate. Between these two visits, I had driven approximately 4K miles and I have not ridden brakes unduly hard. After most recent visit to dealer, braking is not always smooth and feels like a control module is not calibrating the braking pressure correctly causing improper pressure on rotors and periodic irregularity when braking.
