Auto Gearbox Oil/fluid Change?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

when i had the is200 serviced last month, the mechanic said he think thats the auto box fluid needed changing along with the filter as it is very dark in colour.

i have since got a price from him of £140, using the proper lexus/toyota fluid, including a filter?

i am struggling to see why it should be so much? and why i need a new filter, the car is 2003 and has done 85k

can anyone shed any light?

oh so i can get an approved one? not have to go to the dealers?

they said that they dont sell it in 5litre (*whatever size) containers but draw it off from a massive barrell as and when needed?

i am not going to the dealer to get it done but my local mechanic rang them and this was the outcome!
