2001 Honda CR-V Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Honda? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your CR-V towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my CR-V's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 CR-V’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
