2006 Pontiac G6 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Pontiac'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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Pontiac tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your G6 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your G6 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my G6's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2006 G6’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Pontiac, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
