2008 Lexus IS350 Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Lexus? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Lexus tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. 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 IS350 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my IS350's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Lexus IS350 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
