2012 Honda CR-V Transmission Service & Repairs

What’s the Importance of Your 2012 CR-V’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your CR-V’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Honda CR-V transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Honda CR-V transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your CR-V’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2012 Honda CR-V’s Transmission

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Honda tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your CR-V towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my CR-V transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
