2016 GMC Acadia Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your GMC's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Acadia’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Acadia is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Acadia's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your GMC Acadia transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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 GMC. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
