It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice.

2005 Buick LaCrosse Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Buick? 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.
  • How much can my Buick tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your LaCrosse towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my LaCrosse transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Buick LaCrosse transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Buick's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
