Questions About 2019 Buick Encore’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Buick's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Buick? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Encore's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2019 Encore’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Buick. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Buick Encore? Yes. Buick Encore transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.

You might even experience transmission failure.
