Honda recommends changing your new Accord’s transmission fluid after six years or 144-kilometres (60,000 miles), (whichever comes first).

But, because these instructions apply to most Honda’s and many other vehicles, you may want to keep it handy. Changing your Accord’s transmission fluid is not difficult, and similar to changing your car’s oil and does not need a Honda Service Specialist.

Maintenance

Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) Fluid NOTICE:

Do not mix HCF-2 with other transmission fluids. Using a transmission fluid other than HCF-2 may adversely affect the operation and durability of your vehicle’s transmission, and damage the transmission. Any damage caused by using a transmission fluid that is not equivalent to HCF-2 is not covered by Honda’s new vehicle limited warranty.

Manual Transmission Fluid NOTICE:

If Honda MTF is not available, you may use the API certificated SAE 0 W-20 or 5 W-20 viscosity motor oil as a temporary measure. Replace with MTF as soon as possible. Motor oil does not contain the proper additives for the transmission and continued use can cause decreased shifting performance and lead to transmission damage.

Automatic Transmission Fluid NOTICE:

Do not mix Honda ATF-Type 2.0 with other transmission fluids. Using a transmission fluid other than Honda ATF-Type 2.0 may adversely affect the operation and durability of your vehicle’s transmission, and damage the transmission. Any damage caused by using a transmission fluid that is not equivalent to Honda ATF-Type 2.0 is not covered by Honda’s new vehicle limited warranty.
