2006 GMC Savana 1500 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. 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 Savana 1500? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Savana 1500 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Savana 1500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your GMC Savana 1500’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your GMC'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.
