1988 Buick Reatta Questions & Answers

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Buick tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Reatta towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Reatta is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Reatta transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Buick Reatta’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
