2006 Buick Lucerne Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Buick's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Buick Lucerne? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Lucerne’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Lucerne is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Lucerne's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2006 Lucerne’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
