2013 Honda Insight Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 2013 Insight’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Insight’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Honda Insight transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Honda Insight transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Insight at all.

2013 Honda Insight Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? 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 my Honda tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. 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 Insight is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
