I bought a fortuner soon after it came out. It has clocked around 12,000 KM; city, highway, some off road. It's an amazing automobile, very descent fit and finish for the price. The overall performance has improved during the first 10K KM, the difference in ride out of the showroom and after 10K is day and night.
As for the brakes; I bed the brakes on all new cars I acquire. Did the same for the Fortuner on Ring Road lahore. Even with rear drums the fortuner's braking is more than adequate for it's size and purpose.
Great purchase and absolutely happy with it.
