And don't forget you can shift an auto transmission too. Put it in a lower gear if need be. Can help take some stress of the brakes when descending.

If you are new to small engines then make sure you don't shy away from putting the pedal all the way down and having the rpm go to the limit
Big engines have a lot if torque down low, small engines are typically the opposite. This will not hard a well maintained engine and it is how it is meant to be driven if you need the power.

These auto transmissions are stupid long lasting if maintained. They will easily match the mileage of the 1nz engine. I would recommend a fluid change at the 50k mile mark. That us not recommended by Toyota but I have seen the issues that "lifetime fluid" can cause *ahem Subaru CVT's*
Realistically you will probably be fine without changing the trans fluid but mountains are hard on the trans and will increase the trans temps. This would be considered "extreme conditions" in the owners manual and lead to an earlier change.

There is a trans filter but in my experience it doesn't get dirty if you keep fresh fluid in there. I've always changed out mine when I buy used cars but I've never seen a dirty one

my 2017 se had no issues in the Montreal mounts, main thing is dont expect to go fast up hill, and engine braking down hill will save the brakes
