Question about Cars & Trucks
Hey Phathi. Sorry to here about your drama. I have a similar problem . I will spare you the details. What i was advised to to is have your car assessed by two registered clutch , brake and shock service shops. They will be able to give you a report of what went wrong. If it states that the dealer was at fault ( activate your mobile phone voice recorder) you will have to go to the dealer and submitted your findings and also your claims. They will either submit and hand the matter over to there insurance company or tell you to f of . If that happens you thank them politely and go directly to the state prosecutors office . I hope this helps my friend. I know how it feels to have this stress on top of stress already.At the end of the day ... trust me the people involved are not thinking about you or what they would have felt like being in this situation. They do not care and i would /have the same mindset. Hope i could help.

SOURCE: Handbrake indicator light
I'm sorry but i laughed in dismay when I read your problem. The dealer is an idiot clear and simple. It is perfectly reasonable for you to expect the handbrake to be disengaged if the indicator is off.
Yes it is quite possible to drive the car with the handbrake on but you would feel it no question. However if it was only slightly engaged there would indeed be some wear on the rear brakes. The handbrake has merely got a thin metal cable that runs underneath your car that splits into two separate cables which in turn connect to the rear left and right brakes. So there aren't any extra brakes for the handbrake just the ones which are on the rear wheels.
Of course the other thing is you may have a faulty handbrake indicator light. So it's not really about who's fault it is but where the fault lies on the car. I'd go and check out a local garage unless of course your car is still under warranty.
If it is go to another dealer and armed with the info above don't let them fool you
Good luck and i hope you get it sorted

go with standard pads.they wear a little faster than ceramics.but they dont wear down brake rotors.ceramics pads are hard and they cause brakes to squeak.also your car is under warranty with lexus dealership.i would use what they said. because you have future brake problem. they will void out warranty for not using their brakes.
