2012 Lexus ES350 Questions & Answers

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Lexus? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your ES350 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my ES350's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Lexus ES350 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
