2011 Buick LaCrosse Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Buick's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Buick LaCrosse? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your LaCrosse’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my LaCrosse's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2011 LaCrosse’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
