2002 Honda Insight Transmission Service

Why is Your 2002 Insight’s Transmission So Important?

They're often easy to notice. Honda Insight transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Honda Insight transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Insight isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2002 Honda Insight’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Honda's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Honda Insight? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Insight’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 Insight transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Honda Insight transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
