Infiniti will only replace the brakes up to 36,000 miles.
Is unacceptable. Replacing brakes every 10 or 11,000 miles is unacceptable. Infiniti needs to stand by its mistake and replace them for the life of the car. Last Infiniti for me.

Replacing brakes for the life of the car is silly for any manufacturer to do. that's like saying they will put gas in your car for the life of it, or fix every problem with the car for life. Front brake pads should not wear out on a vehicle as specially a new vehicle no earlier than 55,000 miles, my sister had a new Dodge van I changed the pads on the front and 60,000. So yes your breaks wore way faster than they should have, and Infiniti won't change them yes they R wrong, but who cares change them your self pads cost less than $30. It's just brake pads it would be different if your master cylinder went out or your ABS broke and they didn't want to fix it those things are major, but its just brake pads come on.

Replacing brakes are no big deal maybe to a few of you, but to me and many others, especially finding out it's a defect from infiniti is unacceptable! Infiniti has to fix what was causing the pre-mature failure of brakes. And I am not satisfied with just 36,000 miles since I am about to buy it used!

Wow, I can't believe how inane you folks are.
The original brake pads were too soft and wore too quickly for the weight of the car. Inifiniti has replaced these with different longer lasting pads for FREE.
You are buying a high performance car, your brakes should not be expected to last over 30,000 miles. It's $100 parts and labor every 30K miles. If you can't afford that, you certainly have no business buying this car.

If changing brakes is the only problem with this car, then I'm gonna buy one. Nuff said.
Check out my review on the 2003 Lincoln Aviator, then think if you should be complaining.

Our Volvo also had brake pads that wore out at 10,000 miles. The dealer told us they were softer so they would quieter. Supposedly most luxury minded people complain more about noise than they do about frequent replacements. We asked for and got longer life pads, and yes they were nosier, but that was fine with us.
