BRAKES A PROBLEM? MUST READ THIS!!

2007 Lexus ES 350

Brakes problem
2007 Lexus ES 350 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 36,000 miles
THERE IS A TSIB(Tech Srvc Info Bulletin) no. BR002-07 after calling dealer & telling them I read this TSIB I am getting all 4 brakes replaced under warranty as stated in the TSIB BR002-07 for 2007 ES 350. HOPE this helps all you fellow ES drivers!
THIS WAS MY STORY. Anyone else having problems with Lexus quality Service at the Service Dept? I have found out that they are not keeping up with fluids, brakes or tires.I am upset!
I leased an '07 ES350 June 06 and just like another posting. Yestrdy (MAy 4,2009) I started hearing metal grinding so I immediately took it over to Lexus! Now, I am told I need new rear brakes for $400. I have only used this Lexus dealer for srvc. Except 1 oilc chng. &Amp; have never been warned about my brakes appearing to be wearing down or any other POTENTIAL problem. I do not abuse my brakes and only have 36,000 miles on this car, does anybody else find this to be a tad premature for brand new brakes? My other problem is that I had to go to a Quick lube for my last oil change and they showed me that my power steering fluid was " Burnished" and almost empty. I went ahead and replaced it and watched as they replaced it with a clear fluid not a BLACK fluid that was in there. I asked the service dept lady I deal with @ Lexus Y the mechanics didn't keep up w/ that? She said " You were ripped off!&Quot; " Whoever did /said that doesn't know how we do it here at Lexus!&Quot; I didn't argue I only listened I wanted to see just how far she could shove her foot down her throat.I know what I think, but what do you guys think? I'd appreciate any advice here! Thank you in advance to anyone who responds to my question.

Brake should be checked every time oil change and filter done
at about every 5000 miles
at 36k and needing brakes its all depend and what kind of driving you do
its all depend on stop and go and traffic you do each and every day
and as far as the power steering fluid you were taking to the cleaner
no need what so ever for that service
just an extra income for the shop

good luck
