Questions About 2018 Porsche Macan’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Porsche? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Porsche? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Macan’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Macan is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Macan's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Porsche Macan transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Porsche's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
