Questions About 2012 Honda Ridgeline’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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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 it is. Defying your Ridgeline towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.

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.
