Questions About 2013 Toyota Prius’s Transmission

  • 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 I tow in a Toyota Prius? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Prius towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.

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 Toyota, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
