2006 Honda Insight Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Honda's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 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. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Insight's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Honda Insight 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
