2009 Lexus LS460 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 my Lexus tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your LS460 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my LS460's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Lexus LS460’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
