2017 Honda HR-V Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 2017 HR-V’s Transmission?

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 small transmission issue can put a big dent in your HR-V’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Honda HR-V transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Honda HR-V transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your HR-V at all.

2017 Honda HR-V Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Honda's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for 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 weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your HR-V is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my HR-V's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Honda HR-V’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
