FX50S mileage before changing brake pads and rotors

I was wondering how many miles people with an FX50S have before they changed their front and rear brake pads and rotors.

Re: FX50S mileage before changing brake pads and rotors

Personally I think the brake fade is horrible, I forget the exact mileage but I've put about 6-7k on and have already gotten them replaced, pads and rotors

Re: FX50S mileage before changing brake pads and rotors

I just broke 12500 miles and am still on the original set. Clearly I don't brake as hard as some

Re: FX50S mileage before changing brake pads and rotors

I have 32000 mixed city/highway miles on my 2009 FX50S, and I don't have any complaints, but I know they have to be replaced sometime in the near future.

On my 2006 FX45, I got 37K on my rears and 43K on my front brakes before replacing them.

Re: FX50S mileage before changing brake pads and rotors

I just finished doing front and rear brakes on my FX50 at 53K miles. The front was completely worn, the rear had a bit left.

Re: FX50S mileage before changing brake pads and rotors

Wow, I just did brakes at about 120K kilometers and my rotors were still fine. I changed all four corners, but I probably could have gone another 10K without doing the fronts...the backs were shot though. The brakes may have been done by the first owner, but I don't have that particular service order even though I thought I had all service reports from the purchase of the vehicle. I thought for sure the purchaser of the vehicle told me she didn't do anything except oil changes in the 2-1/2 years she owned it. Infiniti does not have a record of the brakes being serviced either, because they actually asked me about it. Even if the brakes were done right before I bought the vehicle I still put on 65000 km without needing brakes...that's what, about 40,000 miles?

Re: FX50S mileage before changing brake pads and rotors

On my 2009, all four corners were done at about 35,000 miles. I knew I had to do it once before my lease ended because they weren't going to take me the remaining 14 months on my lease, so I just did it. They were wearing out. My cruise control wouldn't engage and the reason was the brakes were going.

Brake wear and cruise control are connected that way.

Huh? How is cruise control dependant upon brake wear? I'm not saying it isn't, but I've never heard about it and can't imagine how that would work.
