Front Brakes Worn At 40k

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Just wondered if anyone else has had to re-do their front brakes yet or if it's just my wife riding the pedal :D The dealer said the fronts were at 3mm with 2mm being the minimum to pass sate inspection. They mentioned I could probably go another 5K before I'd reach 2mm. I elected to get them done as we have a major road trip coming up.

Actually, at 36K miles, our 400h's look new. One of the more common issues w/ hybrids has been rust forming on the calipers from lack of use. Unless you request more than a moderate bit of breaking, the regen does it all. We've had to deliberately give a good shove on the break pedal on a couple occasions just to get the oxide crust down. But I'd rather have that issue than shoe wear, personally.
