2012 GMC Acadia Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your GMC? 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 I tow in a GMC Acadia? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Acadia's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 Acadia’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 GMC, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can my GMC Acadia leak transmission fluid? Yes. GMC Acadia transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
  • Where can I get my  GMC Acadia transmission fixed? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care can troubleshoot and repair Acadia transmission systems. Book an appointment online today.
  • Can I still drive my GMC Acadia if it has a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your Acadia to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
