Why is Your 2012 Canyon’s Transmission So Important?

They're often easy to notice. 2012 GMC Canyon transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

Questions About 2012 GMC Canyon’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your GMC's brakes? 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 I tow in a GMC Canyon? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Canyon’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Canyon is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Canyon's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 Canyon’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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 GMC. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
