2006 Lexus ES330 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Lexus'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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Lexus? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your ES330’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my ES330 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2006 ES330’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 Lexus. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
