Remanufactured Honda Fit Transmissions 


The Honda Fit is one of the most practical subcompact cars ever made. Even though it’s pretty small, there’s a shocking amount of room on the inside for passengers and cargo. And it’s pretty fun to drive too. However, transmission problems with the Honda SP5A transmission aren’t very much fun. So let’s find out if installing a remanufactured Honda Fit transmission can restore the magic to your little car. 


Common Honda Fit Transmission Problems  


Erratic Shifting / Loss of Forward Gears: If youre experiencing Honda Fit transmission problems like slipping, erratic shifting, or failed gear engagement, the causes could range from a failed solenoid, to torque convertor problems. 


Another common problem is overheating. This happens when the moving parts inside the transmission are creating more friction heat than the ATF can remove. The most common cause of this condition is towing heavy loads, driving in stop/go traffic, or on mountain roads where the transmission has to shift a lot. 


Loss of 4th Gear and/or Reverse: Another common problem is an inoperable fourth or reverse gear. These issues are often caused by design flaws in the Reverse Boost Valve, channel plate, and stripped splines on the 4th gear clutch hub shaft. 


How to Solve Honda Fit Transmission Problems 


Solution A: Buy a Used Honda Fit Transmission  

Going to the local junkyard and picking up a used Honda Fit transmission might seem like the cheapest and fastest option. But you need to consider the fact that you don’t know what the actual shape of the internal components are. It could very well be on the verge of transmission problems of its own, which would leave you in the exact same predicament that you’re in now. And that 30 – 90 day junkyard warranty probably won’t cover labor charges to install the replacement transmission if something goes wrong. 


Solution B: Buy a Rebuilt Honda Fit Transmission  

Getting a rebuilt Honda Fit transmission would probably seem like a better idea. However, a lot of mechanics and transmission shops will only rebuild your Honda Fit transmission back to its original factory specifications. Which means that all of those factory design flaws are still going to be inplay. And that rebuilt transmission warranty might only be good at certain shops, which could do you no good if you have transmission problems while you’re traveling. 


Solution C: Buy a Remanufactured Honda Fit Transmission  

If you want to get the most service life out of your little luxury SUV as possible, then you really should consider a remanufactured Honda Fit transmission from Street Smart Transmission. Each one is completely disassembled and re-remanufactured, so nothing is left to chance. Theyre also modified to correct the factory design flaws, which will greatly extend the service life. Plus, you get a 3-Year/Unlimited Mile Nationwide Warranty. This will cover parts and labor charges at any licensed repair shop in the Continental United States, giving you a lot more flexibility and coverage.
