After the engine, the most complex and important component of any vehicle is the transmission. As its name implies, it literally transmits the power the engine makes to the wheels. It doesn’t take an automotive expert to know that it is a very important piece of equipment. The best advice for keeping any vehicle running in peak condition for as long as possible is always keep up-to-date with regular maintenance. Our expert service technicians are always ready to help. Here are three bad transmission symptoms you can’t ignore and if you’ve noticed any them, make an appointment with the Meridian Honda Service Department today.
Fluid leaks – As a general rule, any time there is fluid leaking from a vehicle, it’s not a great sign. A transmission is made up of hundreds, if not thousands of moving parts – operating at very high speeds which operates at very high temperatures. It takes a special kind of fluid to keep all of those parts moving and running properly. Transmission fluid most commonly had a reddish color to it. Since transmission fluid isn’t burned up or consumed like gasoline or oil, a leak means something bad is happening.
Warning lights – Modern vehicles have sensors to detect when just about anything goes wrong. This includes most engine and transmission issues. These sensors will let you know if there is a temperature issue or a vibration you might be able to feel.
Strange smells – If transmission fluid is leaking and comes in contact with a hot surface, your nose might be the best way to tell if something is wrong. Burning transmission fluid will smell sweet. The more noticeable the burning smell is, the worse things are getting.
It’s important not to ignore the signs of a vehicle in distress. The quicker you address the problem, the less expensive it will be to fix. You can make an appointment with Meridian Honda through our online scheduling tool or by phone.

I think it is an all around good business to buy a car from! The service department is absolutely wonderful, the staff is kind and caring, and they can fix your car faster than u ever thought
Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for verifying an issue with a tire on my daughter's 2007 Honda Civic as I was driving her from the greater Houston area to Charlotte (and her on to Virginia). The Service team was friendly, accommodating, communicative at every step and if we lived anywhere close, I'd bring vehicles in there for service. Thanks again for taking care of ... us today on our travels!
Caring and professional work. The people were friendly. Would recommend to everyone. I have always had a very good experience.
Came in for an oil change and tire rotation and Josh let me know a couple more things that needed to be done.
Noone was pushy, they listened to what I wanted. They were very fair to deal with. My time in and out was fast.
Fast and Friendly to the most satisfactory degree. Always ready to do what is needed and always referenced me as to the work done or needed.
Friendly staff, great service. Purchased 3 Hondas here and use them for all my service and tire needs. Sales and service are the best.
