2016 Honda Fit Transmission Service & Repairs

What Does Your Honda Fit Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 2016 Honda Fit transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Honda Fit transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Fit at all.

2016 Honda Fit Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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. Defying your Fit towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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 Fit's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Honda Fit transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
