Questions About 2001 Saturn L200’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Saturn's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Saturn tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your L200 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my L200 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 L200’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 Saturn, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
