2001 Honda Accord Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Honda'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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Honda Accord? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Accord towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Accord is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Accord transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 Accord’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 Honda. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
