The was a very dark maroon colour. Under normal daily driving to and from work and a few road trips a year maybe 100-120k would be a reasonable first initial full fluid exchange interval. I think it's a bit unrealistic to say that the transmission fluid will last 500k miles but is definitely made to last quite a while which might be why Toyota decided to omit the specific details on when to replace it. To get these features on several competing models, drivers must spend significantly more. Give that warranty a good read. I tries to do the fuel economy thing most of the time, but if you press the gas hard enough or use the paddle shifters it does act more like a regular transmission.
Double check that the oil drain bolt and new oil filter are tight before moving on to the next steps. It is best left as is in my opinion. It's going to get dark and the odor will change over time. Posting videos advertising parts, accessories, or your giveaway also counts. We have almost never bought new cars. A weep hole on a transmission. If you change regularly and the oil hasn't been oxidized you are fine to change all the times you want.
If the fluid smells strange or has bubbles or particles in it, have a mechanic drain and change it. I think their engines are made in Japan which is the best thing you can look for in car you want to keep for 20 years they get much better milage in the real world about 10% better and they cost as much as the S.

I decided to do a full flush and it was nasty. Pricing and availability varies by dealership. In fact if you have ever been behind a large dumper truck with a straight axle, you can see the simplicity of it. To get these features on several competing models, drivers must spend significantly more. See my other three videos: This video was created and edited by John D.

As far as toyota's reliability, I would still consider it better than most. Don't go too long without fixing your Automatic Transmission Fluid. Good to know that Toyota came to their senses and began equipping vehicles with dip sticks again I read about some other folks using MaxLife in their Tacomas with good success. From what I read, any competent mechanic could rebuild the old Corolla transmissions without much trouble but that isn't the case now. This includes your YouTube videos.
The web is full of articles, but no solid conclusion. While it may not be difficult to find replacement parts for Toyota vehicles, these days only the highest quality are required to maintain your car or truck. How long before the fluid degrades depends on use- ie. Smooth at highway speeds, great gas mileage. But the transmission itself is pretty comfortable. The price I paid was less than the £99 they would apparently charge as I had a number of issues which have now been ironed out. While changing engine oil can be done by yourself or any dealers, but not changing transmission oils since we only change the oil every 120K or more.
I wish I hadn't bought the Camry either. As is required on all new vehicles, the Yaris is equipped with front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Not to disparage them, but you need a ton of hydraulic and electronic workbenches to diagnose and verify the repairs to a broken automatic transmission.

As previously mentioned it is quite a simple straight forward job. We will notify you of your status via e-mail in one business day.
Then refilling, then pumping ad nauseum until I had exchanged it all. We have almost never bought new cars. The fluid is not all it is cooked up to be. This transaxle has no dipstick and is somewhat difficult to determine if the fluid level is correct. The side bolsters were extended higher, too, for a more body-hugging feel. Once the oil level is correct, re-insert the dipstick and tighten the oil filler cap in the clockwise direction until it is snug. Almost completely got rid of the clunk.
But its under warrantee, so guess I don't care. However, when you move up to the Yaris' higher trim levels you can find competitors offering more space and better performance at a lower price. If you notice a sudden, unusual drop, be sure to have your transmission checked out by a professional. Almost completely got rid of the clunk. Allow the new oil to drain down to the oil pan for at least 5 to 10 minutes.
