What Does Your Saturn Vue Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed.

They're often easy to notice. Saturn Vue transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Saturn Vue transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Vue isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2005 Saturn Vue’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Saturn? 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 Saturn Vue? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Vue towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Vue is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Vue transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2005 Vue’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Saturn's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
