Richard Carver Posted September 29, 2006 Share Posted September 29, 2006 I just bought this 2001 RX300 today! I had it inspected prior to purchase at Sewell Lexus here in Dallas and it turns out they have serviced it since new and gave it a clean bill of health. I'm having the transmission flushed, oil changed etc (52K). One thing they mentioned that is looming in the next 90 days or so is front brake pads. Reading over the board, this doesn't seem to be that unusual a happenstance. :) My question is about ceramic pads and cross drilled rotors. I used ceramics on my last car (heavy, heavy Lincoln) and want to use them on this car as well. The lack of wheel dust, the silence and stopping power are things I don't want to be without again. I ran a search and found mostly mixed feelings about ceramics on Lexus, only one or two people I found actually use them. Are any of you RX300 owners using them? I think I'm going to put cross drilled rotors all around when I do the pads and wondered if anyone has experience with those on an RX300. This site is very well done, nice people and very informative. I've spent many hours lurking over the last week or so and can honestly say my decision to buy was a direct result of the comfort level I achieved by browsing here. :) This is my first Lexus and I must say the dealer experience was superb during the inspection and subsequent service work (...and they gave me a cookie) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
