1997 Buick LeSabre 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.
  • What can I tow in a Buick? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your LeSabre 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.
  • When should I have my LeSabre's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Buick LeSabre’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
