2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Toyota's brakes? 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Toyota FJ Cruiser? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem.

Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.

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 Toyota. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
