2010 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use 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. 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.

Regularly checking and exchanging your 2010 Insight’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform.
