2020 Honda Ridgeline Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Honda? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Honda tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. 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.
  • How often does my Ridgeline transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2020 Ridgeline’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
