Questions About 2023 Land Rover Defender 130’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Land Rover's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Land Rover? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Defender 130’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Defender 130 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Defender 130's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2023 Defender 130’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Land Rover. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
