2003 Lexus GS300 Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Lexus's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Lexus? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your GS300’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your GS300 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my GS300's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Lexus GS300 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
