2014 Buick Encore Questions & Answers

  • What can I tow in a Buick? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small.

About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Buick, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
