2020 Honda Pilot Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 light the load might seem. Defying your Pilot towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • When should I have my Pilot's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Honda Pilot transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Honda's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
