Questions About 2003 Toyota Land Cruiser’s Transmission

  • How much can my Toyota tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem.

Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Toyota's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations.
