Second, braking and suspension failures. To be honest, both issues are not rare on Lexus models, without exception for Lexus LFA. As it owns enormous power and runs fast, well-functioning braking system is more desperately needed. According to some Lexus LFA owners, braking failure would manifest as noisy and poorly responded brakes, spongy brake pedal and leaking brake fluid, which could be basically attributed to the brake pad set and wheel cylinder repair kit. While suspension failure often causes clunking noises, uneven tire wear and excessive vibration and LFA wheel bearing, strut housing and sway bar kit are often the culprits.
