2008 Honda Fit Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Honda's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Honda? 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 Fit’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Fit's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Honda Fit’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Honda, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
