Disadvantages of the Toyota A240E gearbox

  • This automatic transmission is very reliable and up to 200,000 km only leaks of the pump seal occur.
  • If you regularly change the lubricant, the gearbox will last until it is completely worn out.
  • Otherwise, shocks will soon appear due to solenoids clogged with dirt.
