2008 Chevrolet Avalanche Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Chevrolet? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Chevrolet? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Avalanche’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Avalanche's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Chevrolet Avalanche’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 Chevrolet. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
