Questions About 2018 Lexus GS350’s Transmission

  • 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Lexus GS350? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your GS350’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.

Regularly checking and exchanging your 2018 GS350’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Lexus, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
