What’s the Importance of Your 2012 Regal’s Transmission?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Buick Regal transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood.

Questions About 2012 Buick Regal’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Buick? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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 Regal 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.
  • How often does my Regal transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 Regal’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Buick's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
