Questions About 2017 Honda Ridgeline’s Transmission

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Honda tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Ridgeline’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Ridgeline is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Ridgeline's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Honda Ridgeline 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.
