2009 Honda Pilot Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Honda's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Honda Pilot? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Pilot’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Pilot is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Pilot's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Honda Pilot 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.
