2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Toyota's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • 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. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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 Land Cruiser transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Toyota Land Cruiser transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
