Question about transmission failure.
2019 Honda Passport AWD Elite:
9-26-23 put on 4 new tires “265/45R-20XL 108V ION EVO all season SUV”. Had 65,198 miles at the time. Tire Center said they were used on Teslas & other electric vehicles. Said it would give me a smooth ride. I did say my vehicle probably doesn’t weigh as much as a Tesla & mine is AWD would that make a difference? Assured me these would give me the smoothest ride. 300 miles later I got a warning “transmission failure” at driving speed of 65. I slowed down to exit highway, then when I accelerated to continue the transmission struggled. Same thing when accelerating from a complete stop. Had to get towed. Reflecting back I did notice that sometimes car acceleration was sluggish. Sometimes shifting gears car would jerk a little. And felt like car was dragging when driving. I Wonder if dealer put on all brand new tires with same tread wear. My Honda dealer said I’m the first to bring in a 2019 passport with transmission damage. Drove about 300 miles on new tires. Car driven on city and highway roads only. No hauling or towing. No snow driving. One City driver. Can new tires be the cause?
I told Tire Center after a week of driving I wanted to exchange the tires because the ride was not smooth. Was to go back later this week to exchange. Have 60 days satisfaction warranty.
Can new tires be the cause?
Also I may be wrong but I feel like the car doesn’t sit as high as it used too.
