2018 Honda Fit Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Honda tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's 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. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Fit transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2018 Fit’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Honda's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
