Q: Lexus is recommending that the differential fluid be replaced on my 2009 Lexus I250 which has 68,000 miles on it.

asked by on

Lexus is recommending that I replace the differential fluid and they are saying I need new front breaks. I just replaced all four brakes in 2015. I do city driving. Your expertise is greatly appreciated.

My car has 68000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The differential fluid change is generally something that is pre-designated by the manufacturer according to the factory and is recommended to be changed at specific service intervals. The brakes needing to be replaced are generally based upon a measurement of the available material left on the brake pads and not a time interval (i.e. changed in 2015). Depending on the amount of mileage driven and how hard the vehicle is driven regularly, they may need to be changed. I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your vehicle.
