What Does Your Saturn Vue Transmission Do?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2008 Saturn Vue transmission problems could include 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 ignore Saturn Vue transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Vue’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2008 Saturn Vue’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Saturn'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 I tow in a Saturn Vue? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Vue’s towing capacity. 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.
  • When should I have my Vue's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 Vue’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Saturn. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
