2016 Buick LaCrosse Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Buick's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Buick? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your LaCrosse’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your LaCrosse is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my LaCrosse's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Buick LaCrosse’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
