2021 Porsche 718 Boxster Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Porsche's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Porsche tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 718 Boxster’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my 718 Boxster's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Porsche 718 Boxster transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Porsche's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
