I bought a 2006 Highlander Hybrid last year. Now it is at 136K miles, PO said they never changed breaks. I have heard no squealing at all, but I'm just wondering--would that sound be the way I would know that it is time to change the brakes? I have read that some drivers have taken their toyota hybrids more miles than I currently have, on the original brakes.

Some do. Some don't. I had rear pads replaced on TCH at 55 000 miles but snookwhaler has original pads and closing on 300 000 miles.
I had all 4 corners on my HiHy replaced roughly at 70K miles. So it depends.
yes, they do have wear indicators just like any other brake pad, nothing special.
Best way to find out is to remove wheels and actually check thickness.

Sounds like I should be good for a while. I'll just wait to hear the sounds.

At some point (maybe 200K?) I'll have the wheels removed and measured, even if there is no noise.

Thanks.
