Questions About 2003 Pontiac Bonneville’s Transmission

  • 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 my Pontiac tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Bonneville towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Bonneville is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Bonneville's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Pontiac Bonneville’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 Pontiac's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
