You can find specific maintenance schedules in your owners manual. If you don't have one, you can find it on-line. Just Google your car and it's easy to find.

I am certainly no expert, BUT ... I called the Lexus dealer re my 2007 ES350. They said the transmission is a closed system is not designed for changing the transmission fluid. With proper use of the vehicle, they said, it should never require changing. But that assumes that transmission fluid never breaks down ????? I am confused. Any thoughts?

I'm sure the owners manual will tell you what the Lexus dealer said. I'm glad you did that and now you should have no trouble over transmission fluid; If driven sensibly, I wouldn't expect any issues.

Don't believe Lexus Customer service. They are not Xmission design engineer. I am M.E and I have 2016 Lexus ES350. Renember: Nothing for ever. 11 year and 98,000 miles wo xmission service is extreme. You must change xmission fluid NOW, drive 2000-3000 miles after change fluid, don't drive for 2 -3 days then change xmission fluid and filter.

I have called a few Toyota and Lexus service centres. None of them is willing to perform this service. I have a 2016 ES 350. I am concerned as I don't believe this fluid will last the mileage I want to put on this car, even if driven "sensibly".

This transmission is closed: you have no access to the fluid. If you drop the pan, you have no way to fill it; of course no service provider will do this. As for something not lasting forever, I have a Toyota Previa that I bought new in 1990. It has sealed front wheel bearings that never get repacked. That's 30 years of service without a problem..... As I said earlier, follow the instructions in your owners manual, no matter how much smarter you think you are.
