Default One complaint about the QX4......

.....but I am sure it goes with any SUV. The brakes on these vehicles go too fast. Had them changed 2.5 years ago, allllllllllllll new brakes all the way around. Here we go again, had to change the rotors, and while at it, might as well change the pads.


Nissan is wonderful, except their brake systems are notorious and never last long. Frustrating.

Would a well maintained (its a one-owner with a full service history) D21 last me for another 50k miles? or should I be looking at something with fewer miles?

Eh, maybe for SUV's, but I've found their brakes to last quite a while in terms of their small cars. My 240SX uses a full set of pads in about a year and a set of rotors every three. Sounds bad, but considering the type of driving I do in that car (which involves multiple threshold braking sessions every week) I'm surprised they last as long. That's of course with street pads and rotors; the same thing with race pads would eat the rotors in a month.

You can't fight physics. More weight = more pad to stop.

I believe it would. Get it checked out by a mechanic first, but if it has been babied, then I dont see why not.
