Front/Rear Brake Pads and Rotors JX35

Hi

So I was in for my service today and I was told my brakes need service. They quoted me ridiculous amount of money to service the brake. Only 1mm is left.

Normally I buy Front/Rear Brake Pads and Rotors together. But I looked online and found it's not easy to get Brake parts for this Vehicle.

Has anyone changed their Pads n Rotors ? If yes from where?

PS : I have 2013 JX35 with 44000KMs on it in Toronto.

Thanks

Thanks for posting, I was starting to wonder how many miles till new brakes/rotors. I have 39K/63KMs and so far it's not squeaking.

How much was the service quote?

Maybe there's better luck if finding the parts for the Pathfinder? (don't know it's different or not regarding brakes/rotors)

Nope.

I would have assumed cross-drilled rotors would have been engineered into the vehicle when it was designed, if it works.

Besides, I hear cross-drilled rotors were originally conceived to let brake gas escape. Modern pads don't gas. The current cross-drilled rotor sell is to allow heat to dissipate with holes. The more surface area on the rotor (no holes), the more air comes in contact with the rotor, equals better cooling.

Also, cross drilling reduces the surface of the pad, potentially increasing your stopping distance, and can cause "potential" structural issues to the rotor.

The best way to reduce rotor warping is to brake moderately. Don't ride them, and downshift if heading down long hills.

I am thinking of ordering just Pads for now and at next pad change I will change Rotors too. I am thinking about ordering following Pads:

Rear : POWER STOP Part # 16905 Evolution Ceramic
Front : POWER STOP Part # 161649 Evolution Ceramic

My Vehicle has Adaptive cruise control and collision prevention system. I am not sure if these are the correct Pads for the Vehicle with these advance system .

Stealership has quoted me 475+tax per axle to replace pads and machine the rotors.

Can someone confirm if these will work with my vehicle?

Have you checked with the dealer's part department to get oem pads/rotors? Then check if they have a 20% off coupon to buy them... I get those every few months from my dealer.

Yes I did call the dealer's part dept. They were asking for 112$ + tax per axle for just Pads.
