Question about 2006 Lexus Gs 300

Brake pad pulsating

Lexus GS300- The dealer service man on test drive after routine 20k service noted that the front brake pads were pulsating when coming to a stop. I have thought that from when we first purchased the car, they say pads should be replaced - at my cost ??what would cause the front brakes to pulsate ? MIKE

    I have the same problem with my 2006 GS300.  When I took it in for the 30000 mile service, they indicated that the rotors were slightly warped and could be fixed if it bothers me.  I have never had a car in my 50 years of driving that had a problem like this.  Not exactly quality!

    The brake light comes on and the car starts to pulsate and chatter.

Possible causes- low spot on the rotors. Caliper pins not sliding with pulsation. May not need to replace pads.

I recently put new front brake pads and had rotors turned on the front end of my 2003 tundra sr5,after a month of driving i'm getting the pulsation when braking back which is why i made this repai


HI if you have pulsation after a month you must replace the rotors
they are too thin and the heat is warping them faster then before you
had them turned
note you replace brake pads and rotors

good luck

96 Lexus ES300 When you depress the brake pedal, the car "slides" to a stop. It feels like the ABS is kicking in when there is no need. It happens always when turning right into a parking space, but...


Hi there

Few things: When you say it 'slides' to a stop. Do you mean the pedal sinks to the floor with the same pressure as you first applied? If so, the master cylinder needs an overhaul or a replacement, as the seal around the plunger/piston has deteriorated.

If that is not the case, and you get a pulsating feel through the brake pedal, this is the ABS working. If it is not an emergency stop, then the rear brake pads are low, which causes the ABS to trigger too early (and by the sounds of it it is the left rear brake pad).

Seems odd how Toyota mechanics could not work that one out, they own Lexus. Alas, if it's not on their fool-proof computer screen then they pass the buck.

Good luck and please vote for me if this helps you.

Need rotors and pads


gx's do not do well with aftermarket brake pads. they always end up in the dealership shop with some noise,pulsation or vibration problem and i see many people paying twice for brakes. i know brake jobs are expensive at the dealer but its really the only way to go. oem parts and an experienced tech are the best way to go.

In 2004 Impala, do I have rotor or drums?


The best way to answer you question is to tell you to take the vehicle to your nearest dealer and inquire with the parts dept. I can tell you that on the ffront of your car you have rotors and the brake used on the front is called a pad. Also your vehicle does not have a separate parking brake. It is the same as the regular rear brake no matter which type of brakes you have on the back.

Take it back to the dealer who fixed it.
Driving with the rear brakes locked may have warped the rotors. Blue color is from excessive heat. Sounds like a preportioning valve in the brake system is faulty.
The dealer didn't do his job very well. Find another dealer.

Replacement brake pads for 06 Lexus GS 300?


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.

I replaced the front pads on a VW JETTA 2.5 and the check pads light is on. How can I reset the check pads light?


As the brake pads wear, the brake pad wear sensor contained in the brake pad contacts the brake rotor. This causes the sensor to fail. When a pad wear sensor fails it opens the ground circuit of the pad wear warning light system causing the pad wear warning light to illuminate. Perform normal brake service to correct this condition and be sure to replace the brake pads with pads containing wear sensors. Once the brake pads and wear sensors are replaced, reset the brake pad warning system by turning the ignition switch to the "on" position. As long as continuity to ground exists through all the brake pad wear sensors the system should reset and the pad warning light in the dash will go out. If the pad warning light does not go out, a check of the pad warning circuit for an open circuit condition or poor ground must be performed.
