  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Pontiac? 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 Pontiac Bonneville? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is.
