Does the Brand Make a Difference? Discussing Honda Transmissions

If you ever take a marketing course, they will tell you that branding is everything. You have to uniformly and successfully brand your product or service and stay “on brand” at all times. After all, what you sell is your brand. Athletic wear brands don’t sell running shoes, they sell an active lifestyle. Beer brands don’t sell IPAs and lagers, they sell good times. And auto manufacturers don’t sell cars, they sell adventure, luxury, environmental consciousness, and half a dozen other things. But is this all that brands are?

Auto Brands

When it comes to the automobiles themselves, there are some significant differences between auto brands. We can see this in the transmission, as well. Often, these differences are subtle. Sometimes there are major differences. Knowing the differences between different automakers’ transmissions might not make a huge difference, but it can help you make the best purchase for your needs and wants or help you to take care of your transmission. In this article we will discuss Honda transmissions.

Honda

Honda Motor Company, Ltd. was founded in Hamamatsu, Japan, in 1946. In addition to automobiles, they make motorcycles, aircraft, power equipment, and more. Popular Honda cars include the Civic, the Accord, the CR-V, and their luxury brand, the Acura. As a company, Honda is doing very well. They are the world’s largest producers of internal combustion engines by volume. But how good are their transmissions?

Honda Transmissions

The first thing to note about Honda transmissions is that you should really use a Honda branded transmission fluid with them. If you use non-Honda branded transmission fluid in your transmission, you might run into problems. It might sound like a cynical ploy to get you to buy their transmission fluid, and it’s kind of is, but it does have an actual effect on your Honda transmission.

It should also be noted that Honda automatic transmissions don’t have replaceable filters. Honda transmissions do have filters, but the filters are internal. The only way to change the filter in a Honda transmission to open the transmission case. Honda transmission filters are, ostensibly, lifetime filters and therefore they do not have a suggested service interval. The required maintenance with a Honda transmission is only to drain out the old fluid, clean the drain plug magnet, and refill with new Honda fluid. If you do this about every 50,000 kilometers then you should be able to avoid most transmission problems. But, like with all transmissions, if you neglectthe recommended maintenance procedures, you’re likely to encounter transmission problems.

This is the second time I've visited Mr. Transmission. I originally contacted the location at jane and lawrence who advised they were swamped but put me in touch with someone at the Queensway location. Just as the previous experience, I have nothing but positive things to say. I would greatly recommend this location to anyone in need of automotive repairs.

I would recommend Mr. Transmission on Essa Rd to anybody. In fact I already sent my boyfriend there and he is just as impressed with their service, professionalism, pricing and timing. Very happy I chose to go here!!

Very impressed by Cecil and his crew. Took my 2006 Jeep Cherokee in for fuel injector issues and had it running like a dream in no time. Finding a good mechanic that you can trust and won't take you to the cleaners is important to me. I'll get my jeep done here from now on. Shout out to Fab for taking care of my baby.
