        Works just as good, if not better to replace what appears to be terrible front brake pads (left and right sides) in a 2003 Lexus ES300. I cannot verify if it was OEM (Lexus) or an aftermarket brake pads installed by the previous owner (i.e., car was bought used). But nonetheless, braking felt much better, doesn't feel mushy, and stops better than the previous unknown brake pads installed. Doesn't squeal too.

              Comments about Carquest Wearever Gold Semi-Metallic Brake Pads - Front (4-Pad Set):

              First on-line order and picked up at the store a quarter mile from where I live. I was able to know they had the parts in stock for pick up instead of the possibility of going in and finding they aren't. Two stores in the area allows me to check. I like that. Time to clean up and then pick up. A half hour claimed, but I had them in 15 minutes, paid by PayPal. Easy.

              Now how they expect anyone to rate brakes for regular driving I have no idea. Ask again in about the time we hear crunching again (worn out brakes).

              I will say these pads are initially weak braking, but seat in and return to normal after several hard stops to seat them and get a bit of heat in them. Shortly there after braking was normal.

              I put them in and wife started to drive before I got the chance to seat the pads. Pedal was going near the floor. I took it out to see. Soft pedal going low, but after around six hard braking hits, they were coming around to normal pedal. Wife ran her errands and all, said brakes were "lke before".

                    Your brake pads or shoes are warranted for the stated period of time printed on your Order Confirmation page or email, provided you were the original purchaser of the part and you still own the vehicle on which it was installed. This warranty cannot be transferred to anyone at any time. Parts installed on commercial use vehicles are warranted for 90 days from the date of purchase.
