2001 Buick LeSabre 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your LeSabre’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your LeSabre is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my LeSabre's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Buick LeSabre transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
