2001 Lexus RX300 Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem.

  • How often does my RX300 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Lexus RX300 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
