Question about 1999 Lexus ES 300
My transmission went out on my 99 ES300 and my Lexus dealer said that they do not repiair tranny's just replace them. That is an expensive proposition. $4500,
I have taken my car to an AAMCO.shop.
Hope I made the right choice.
I am also wondering if 113,000 miles is early for a transmission failure. I am the original owner.
Any advice to keep the this from happening again?
I check all my fluids and never had a leak.etc.
Flush the fluid every 30-45k miles. I work for lexus and they make solid cars and transmissions but some es300 transmissions from that year range fail (a very small percent) they do only replace transmissions. After the replacement the cars are fine, its not necessarily anything the owner did.Ive seen mixed results from shops that rebuild these transmissions as they don't do them everyday, those shops see alot more gm ford and chrysler vehicles and many of their models fail before 100k.

If there were problems on 1999 ES300 transmissions, were the costs to fix or replace the transmissions reimbursed by Lexus?
