Why is Your 2009 CR-V’s Transmission So Important?

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

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2009 Honda CR-V transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Honda CR-V transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your CR-V isn’t working at all.

2009 Honda CR-V Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Honda's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Honda CR-V? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your CR-V’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my CR-V's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Honda CR-V’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
