Questions About 2003 Honda Pilot’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Honda Pilot? 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. 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 Pilot transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Honda Pilot’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.
