Questions About 2009 Scion tC’s Transmission

  • How much can my Scion tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your tC’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my tC transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Scion tC 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 Scion, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
