Please read this information carefully. Following the instructions below will also help to keep you and your passengers safe. Important Safety Precautions •  Always wear your seat belt. •  Secure all children in the proper restraint system. INSTRUMENT PANEL 5 11 •  Be aware of airbag hazards. 4 Color information display p. 52 7 Hood release handle p. 129 2 On-Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™)* p. 60 8 Fuel fill door handle p. 112 9 Power window switches p. 34 3 Hazard warning button Door lock switches p. 33 4 Climate control p. 46 Door mirror controls p. 44 5 Accessory power socket p. 50 10 USB port p. 50 Auxiliary input jack p. 50 11 Parking brake p. 100 Driving Position Memory System buttons p. 43 •  Pay appropriate attention to the task of driving safely. •  Control your speed. •  Keep your vehicle in safe condition. Engaging in cell phone conversation or other activities that keep you from paying close attention to the road, other vehicles, and pedestrians could lead to a crash. Remember, situations can change quickly, and only you can decide when it is safe to divert some attention away from driving. Important Handling Information Moonroof switch p. 35 Your vehicle has a higher ground clearance than a passenger vehicle designed for use only on pavement. Higher ground clearance has many advantages for offhighway driving. It allows you to travel over bumps, obstacles, and rough terrain. It also provides good visibility so you can anticipate problems earlier. Interior lights p. 34 BLUETOOTH® HANDSFREELINK® 2 | | 3 INDEX *if equipped VOICE COMMAND INDEX These advantages come at some cost. Because your vehicle is taller and rides higher off the ground, it has a higher center of gravity, making it more susceptible to tipping or rollover if you make abrupt turns. Utility vehicles have a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles. In a rollover crash, an unbelted person is significantly more likely to die than a person wearing a seat belt. As a reminder, make sure you and your passengers always wear seat belts. CLIENT INFORMATION ACURALINK® •  Don’t drink and drive. SPECIFICATIONS VEHICLE CONTROLS 7 1 6 AUDIO AND CONNECTIVITY 8 MAINTENANCE 9 DRIVING Model with navigation shown Your safety—and the safety of others—is very important, and operating this vehicle safely is an important responsibility. While we strive to help you make informed decisions about safety, it is not practical or possible to warn you about all the hazards associated with operating or maintaining your vehicle. Therefore, you must use your own good judgment. NAVIGATION Visual Index TABLE OF CONTENTS A seat belt is your best protection in all types of collisions. Airbags are designed to supplement seat belts, not replace them. So even though your vehicle is equipped with airbags, make sure you and your passengers always wear your seat belts and wear them properly. INSTRUMENT PANEL You WILL be KILLED or SERIOUSLY HURT if you don’t follow instructions. WARNING You CAN be KILLED or SERIOUSLY HURT if you don’t follow instructions. CAUTION You CAN be HURT if you don’t follow instructions. NOTICE This information is intended to help you avoid damage to your vehicle, other property, or the environment. Carbon Monoxide Gas The engine exhaust from this vehicle contains carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless, and highly toxic gas. As long as you properly maintain your vehicle and follow the instructions set forth below, you will not accumulate dangerous levels of carbon monoxide gas in the vehicle interior. Have the exhaust system inspected for leaks whenever: •  The exhaust system is making an unusual noise. •  The exhaust system may have been damaged. •  The vehicle is raised for an oil change. The front seats are equipped with automatic seat belt tensioners to enhance safety. The tensioners automatically tighten the front seat belts during a moderate to severe frontal collision, sometimes even if the collision is not severe enough to inflate the front airbags. Proper Use of Seat Belts Follow these guidelines for proper use: •  All occupants should sit upright, well back in the seat, and remain in that position for the duration of the trip. Slouching and leaning reduces the effectiveness of the belt and can increase the chance of serious injury in a crash. When you operate a vehicle with the tailgate open, airflow can pull exhaust gas into the interior and create a hazardous condition. If you must drive with the tailgate open, open all the windows and set the climate control system as shown below. •  Never place the shoulder part of a lap/shoulder seat belt under your arm or behind your back. This could cause very serious injuries in a crash. 1. Select the fresh air mode. •  Do not put any accessories on the seat belts. Devices intended to improve comfort or reposition the shoulder part of a seat belt can reduce the protective capability and increase the chance of serious injury in a crash. mode. 3. Set the fan speed to high. 4. Set the temperature control to a comfortable setting. ­ djust the climate control system in the same manner if you sit in your parked A vehicle with the engine running. Carbon monoxide gas is toxic. Breathing it can cause unconsciousness and even kill you. Avoid any enclosed areas or activities that expose you to carbon monoxide. An enclosed area such as a garage can quickly fill up with carbon monoxide gas. Do not run the engine with the garage door closed. Even when the garage door is open, drive out of the garage immediately after starting the engine. WARNING Not wearing a seat belt properly increases the chance of a serious injury or death in a crash, even though your vehicle has airbags. Be sure you and your passengers always wear seat belts and wear them properly. | 5 INDEX 4 | •  No one should sit in a seat with an inoperative seat belt or one that does not appear to be working correctly. Using a seat belt that is not working properly may not protect the occupant in a crash. Have a dealer check the belt as soon as possible. VOICE COMMAND INDEX WARNING •  Two people should never use the same seat belt. If they do, they could be very seriously injured in a crash. CLIENT INFORMATION AUDIO AND CONNECTIVITY All five seating positions are equipped with lap/shoulder seat belts with emergency locking retractors. In normal driving, the retractor lets you move freely while keeping some tension on the belt. During a collision or sudden stop, the retractor locks to restrain your body. The front passenger’s and rear seat belts also have a lockable retractor for use with child seats. SPECIFICATIONS BLUETOOTH® HANDSFREELINK® Lap/Shoulder Seat Belts MAINTENANCE VEHICLE CONTROLS DANGER HANDLING THE UNEXPECTED SAFETY INFORMATION VISUAL INDEX Seat Belts When you see the following messages throughout this guide, pay close attention. DRIVING Safety Messages 2. Select the ACURALINK® Safety NAVIGATION Safety TABLE OF CONTENTS Safety Seat Belt Inspection Fastening a Seat Belt Regularly check the condition of your seat belts as follows: Adjust your seat to the proper position (see page 40), and then follow the below steps. A belt that has been worn during a crash may not provide the same level of protection in a subsequent crash. Have your seat belts inspected by a dealer after any collision. WARNING INSTRUMENT PANEL 3. Position the lap part of the belt as low as possible across your hips, then pull up on the shoulder part of the belt so the lap part fits snugly. This lets your strong pelvic bones take the force of a crash and reduces the chance of internal injuries. Latch plate Buckle 4. If necessary, pull up on the belt again to remove any slack, then make sure that the belt rests across the center of your chest and over your shoulder. This spreads the forces of a crash over the strongest bones in your upper body. MAINTENANCE Not checking or maintaining seat belts can result in serious injury or death if the seat belts do not work properly when needed. Check your seat belts regularly and have any problem corrected as soon as possible. Pull out slowly. 2. Insert the latch plate into the buckle, then tug on the belt to make sure the buckle is secure. Make sure that the belt is not twisted or caught on anything. Lap belt as low as possible. SPECIFICATIONS To release the belt, push the red PRESS button then guide the belt by hand until it has retracted completely. VEHICLE CONTROLS HANDLING THE UNEXPECTED SAFETY INFORMATION Any belt that is not in good condition or working properly will not provide proper protection and should be replaced as soon as possible. 1. Pull the seat belt out slowly. DRIVING VISUAL INDEX •  Pull each belt out fully, and look for frays, cuts, burns, and wear. •  Check that the latches work smoothly and the belts retract easily. If a belt does not retract easily, cleaning the belt may correct the problem. Only use a mild soap and warm water. Do not use bleach or cleaning solvents. Make sure the belt is completely dry before allowing it to retract. NAVIGATION Safety WARNING Improperly positioning the seat belts can cause serious injury or death in a crash. Adjusting the Shoulder Anchor The front seats have adjustable shoulder anchors to accommodate taller and shorter occupants. BLUETOOTH® HANDSFREELINK® 1. Move the anchor up and down while holding the release button. 2. Position the anchor so that the belt rests across the center of your chest and over your shoulder. Push | 7 INDEX 6 | VOICE COMMAND INDEX ACURALINK® CLIENT INFORMATION AUDIO AND CONNECTIVITY Make sure all seat belts are properly positioned before driving. TABLE OF CONTENTS VISUAL INDEX Airbags The seat belt for the second-row center seat is located in the ceiling. Your vehicle is equipped with three types of airbags: front airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags. 1. Pull out the seat belt’s small latch plate and the latch plate from each holding slot in the ceiling. Small latch plate Front Airbags (SRS) Latch plate 2. Line up the triangle marks on the small latch plate and anchor buckle. Make sure the seat belt is not twisted. Attach the belt to the anchor buckle. SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) indicates that the airbags are designed to supplement seat belts, not replace them. Seat belts are the occupant’s primary restraint system. Small latch plate Advanced Airbags Anchor buckle Your front airbags have advanced features to help reduce the likelihood of airbagrelated injuries to smaller occupants. Latch plate The driver’s advanced front airbag system includes a seat position sensor. If the seat is too far forward, the airbag inflates with less force, regardless of the severity of the impact. Buckle VEHICLE CONTROLS Latch plate WARNING •  Do not spill any liquid on or under the seats. •  Do not put any object under the passenger’s seat. •  Make sure any objects are positioned properly on the floor. Improperly positioned objects can interfere with the advanced airbag sensors. •  All occupants should sit upright and wear their seat belts properly. •  Do not place any cover over any part of the passenger side dashboard. 8 | | 9 INDEX ACURALINK® For both advanced front airbags to work properly: VOICE COMMAND INDEX BLUETOOTH® HANDSFREELINK® Using the seat belt with the detachable anchor unlatched increases the chance of serious injury or death in a crash. Before using the seat belt, make sure the detachable anchor is correctly latched. Passenger’s seat weight sensors CLIENT INFORMATION AUDIO AND CONNECTIVITY Small latch plate The passenger’s advanced front airbag system has weight sensors. Although Acura recommends against carrying an infant or small child in front, if the sensors detect the weight of a child (up to 65 lbs or 29 kg), the system will automatically turn off the passenger’s front airbag. SPECIFICATIONS To unlatch the detachable anchor, insert the latch plate into the slot on the side of the anchor buckle. Driver’s seat position sensor If there is a problem with the driver’s seat position sensor, the SRS indicator will come on and the airbag will inflate with full (normal) force, regardless of the driver’s seating position. MAINTENANCE 3. Insert the latch plate into the buckle. Properly fasten the seat belt the same way you fasten the lap/shoulder seat belt. The front SRS airbags inflate in a moderate-to-severe frontal collision to help protect the head and chest of the driver and/or front passenger. They are housed in the center of the steering wheel for the driver, and in the dashboard for the front passenger. Both airbags are marked SRS AIRBAG. HANDLING THE UNEXPECTED SAFETY INFORMATION Seat Belt with Detachable Anchor DRIVING INSTRUMENT PANEL Safety NAVIGATION Safety TABLE OF CONTENTS VISUAL INDEX SAFETY INFORMATION INSTRUMENT PANEL The side airbags help protect the upper torso and pelvis of the driver or a front passenger during a moderate-to-severe side impact. They are housed in the outside edge of the driver’s and front passenger’s seat-backs. Both are marked SIDE AIRBAG. Always wear your seat belt properly, and sit upright and as far back from the steering wheel as possible while allowing full control of the vehicle. A front passenger should move their seat as far back from the dashboard as possible. Side Curtain Airbags Side curtain airbags help protect the head and torso of the driver and passengers in outer seating positions during a moderate-to-severe side impact. The side curtain airbags equipped in this vehicle are also designed to help reduce the likelihood of partial and complete ejection of vehicle occupants through side windows in crashes, particularly rollover crashes. The side curtain airbags are located in the ceiling above the side windows on both sides of the vehicle. Do not place hard or sharp objects between yourself and a front airbag. Carrying hard or sharp objects on your lap, or driving with a pipe or other sharp object in your mouth, can result in injuries if your front airbag inflates. Do not attach or place objects on the front airbag covers. Objects on the covers marked SRS AIRBAG could interfere with the proper operation of the airbags or be propelled inside the vehicle and hurt someone if the airbags inflate. Do not attach accessories on or near the side airbags. They can interfere with the proper operation of the airbags, or hurt someone if an airbag inflates. Do not attach any objects to the side windows or roof pillars. They can interfere with the proper operation of the side curtain airbags. Do not cover or replace the front seat-back covers. This can prevent your side airbags from properly deploying during a side impact. Side curtain airbag storage An open glove box can cause serious injury to your passenger in a crash, even if the passenger is wearing the seat belt. Always keep the glove box closed while driving. Deployed side curtain airbags To get the best protection from the side curtain airbags, occupants should wear their seat belts properly and sit upright and well back in their seats. When side curtain airbags deploy in a frontal collision One or both side curtain airbags may inflate in a moderate-to-severe angled frontal collision. In this case, the side curtain airbags will deploy slightly after the front airbags. Airbag System Indicators If a problem occurs in the airbag system, the SRS indicator will come on and a message appears on the multi-information display. SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) Indicator If the indicator comes on at any other time besides vehicle start-up, or does not come on at all, have the system checked by a dealer as soon as possible. If you don’t, your airbags and seat belt tensioners may not work properly when they are needed. Models with color display Models without color display | 11 INDEX 10 | VOICE COMMAND INDEX WARNING Ignoring the SRS indicator can result in serious injury or death if the airbag systems or tensioners do not work properly. Have your vehicle checked by a dealer as soon as possible if the SRS indicator alerts you to a possible problem. CLIENT INFORMATION Do not attach any objects to the side windows or roof pillars, as they can interfere with the proper operation of the side curtain airbags. BLUETOOTH® HANDSFREELINK® WARNING SPECIFICATIONS The side curtain airbags are designed to deploy in a rollover or moderate-to-severe side impact. If the SRS control unit senses that your vehicle is about to roll over, it immediately deploys both side curtain airbags and activates both front seat belt tensioners. If the impact is on the passenger’s side, the passenger’s side curtain airbag will inflate even if there are no occupants on that side of the vehicle.

Airbag Care You do not need to, and should not, perform any maintenance on or replace any airbag system components yourself. However, you should have your vehicle inspected by a dealer in the following situations: When the airbags have deployed If an airbag has inflated, the control unit and other related parts must be replaced. Similarly, once an automatic seat belt tensioner has been activated, it must be replaced. When the vehicle has been in a moderate-to-severe collision Do not remove or modify a front seat without first consulting a dealer The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Transport Canada recommend that all children ages 12 and under be properly restrained in a rear seat. Some states or provinces/territories have laws restricting where children may ride. To reduce the number of child deaths and injuries, every state, Canadian province and territory requires that infants and children be properly restrained when they ride in a vehicle. Protecting Child Passengers •  An inflating front or side airbag can injure or kill a child sitting in the front seat. •  A child in the front seat is more likely to interfere with the driver’s ability to safely control the vehicle. •  Statistics show that children of all sizes and ages are safer when they are properly restrained in a rear seat. •  Any child who is too small to wear a seat belt correctly must be restrained in an approved child seat that is properly secured to the vehicle using either the lap belt portion of the lap/shoulder belt or the lower anchors of the LATCH system. •  Never hold a child on your lap because it is impossible to protect them in the event of a collision. •  Never put a seat belt over yourself and a child. During a crash, the belt would likely press deep into the child and cause serious or fatal injuries. •  Never let two children use the same seat belt. Both children could be very seriously injured in a crash. SPECIFICATIONS This would likely disable the driver’s seat position sensor or the weight sensors in the passenger’s seat. If it is necessary to remove or modify a front seat to accommodate a person with disabilities, contact an Acura dealer. For U.S. vehicles, call Acura Client Relations at (800) 382-2238. For Canadian vehicles, call Acura Client Services at (888) 922-8729. Each year, many children are injured or killed in vehicle crashes because they are either unrestrained or not properly restrained. In fact, vehicle collisions are the number one cause of death of children ages 12 and under. MAINTENANCE Even if the airbags did not inflate, have your dealer inspect the following: the driver’s seat position sensor, weight sensors in the passenger’s seat, front seat belt tensioners, and each seat belt that was worn during the crash.

Any child too small for a seat belt should be properly restrained in a child seat. A larger child should be properly restrained with a seat belt, using a booster seat if necessary. CLIENT INFORMATION •  Do not leave children in the vehicle unattended, especially in hot weather when the inside of the vehicle can get hot enough to kill them. They could also activate vehicle controls, causing it to move unexpectedly. TABLE OF CONTENTS VISUAL INDEX SAFETY INFORMATION Allowing a child to play with a seat belt or wrap one around their neck can result in serious injury or death. Instruct children not to play with any seat belt and make sure any unused seat belt a child can reach is buckled, fully retracted, and locked. Protecting Infants An infant must be properly restrained in a rear-facing, reclining child seat until the infant reaches the seat manufacturer’s weight or height limit for the seat, and the infant is at least one year old. Many experts recommend use of a rear-facing seat for a child up to two years old if the child’s height and weight are appropriate for a rear-facing seat. Child seats must be placed and secured in a rear seating position. Rear-facing child seats should never be installed in a forward-facing position. We strongly recommend placing a forward-facing child seat in a rear seating position. Placing a forward-facing child seat in the front seat can be hazardous, even with advanced front airbags that automatically turn the passenger’s front airbag off. A rear seat is the safest place for a child. WARNING Placing a forward-facing child seat in the front seat can result in serious injury or death if the front airbag inflates. If you must place a forward-facing child seat in front, move the vehicle seat as far back as possible, and properly restrain the child. In seating positions and vehicles not equipped with LATCH, a LATCH-compatible child seat can be installed using the seat belt and a top tether for added security. This is because all child seats are required to be designed so that they can be secured with a lap belt or the lap part of a lap/shoulder belt. In addition, the child seat manufacturer may advise that a seat belt be used to attach a LATCHcompatible seat once a child reaches a specified weight. Please read the child seat owner’s manual for proper installation instructions. BLUETOOTH® HANDSFREELINK® Make sure the child seat meets the following three requirements: •  The child seat is the correct type and size for the child. •  The child seat is the correct type for the seating position. •  The child seat is compliant with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213 or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213. | 17 INDEX 16 | VOICE COMMAND INDEX Important consideration when selecting a child seat CLIENT INFORMATION Placing a rear-facing child seat in the front seat can result in serious injury or death during a crash. Always place a rear-facing child seat in the rear seat, not the front. Most child seats are LATCH-compatible (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren). Some have a rigid-type connector, while others have a flexible-type connector. Both are equally easy to use. Some existing and previously owned child seats can only be installed using the seat belt. Whichever type you choose, follow the child seat manufacturer’s use and care instructions as well as the instructions in this manual. Proper installation is key to maximizing your child’s safety. SPECIFICATIONS When properly installed, a rear-facing child seat may prevent the driver or a front passenger from moving their seat all the way back, or from locking their seatback in the desired position. It can also interfere with proper operation of the front passenger’s advanced front airbag system. If this occurs, we recommend that you install the child seat directly behind the front passenger’s seat, move the seat as far forward as needed, and leave it unoccupied. Or, you may wish to get a smaller rear-facing child seat. MAINTENANCE AUDIO AND CONNECTIVITY If a child is at least one year old and within the weight range indicated by the child seat manufacturer, the child should be properly restrained in a firmly secured forward-facing child seat.

When a child is too big for a child seat, secure the child in a rear seat using the lap/shoulder seat belt. Two tether anchorage points are provided behind the rear outer seating positions and one in the ceiling for the rear center. A child seat that is installed with a seat belt and comes with a tether can use the tether for additional security. Have the child sit upright and all the way back, then ensure the following: Anchor •  The child’s knees bend comfortably over the edge of the seat. •  The lap part of the seat belt is as low as possible, touching the child’s thighs. Using an outer anchor 1. Raise the head restraint to its highest position, then route the tether strap through the head restraint legs. Make sure the strap is not twisted. Tether strap hook Anchor Using the center anchor 1. Lower the head restraint to its lowest position. Anchor Some U.S. states and Canadian provinces/territories require children to use a booster seat until they reach a given age or weight (e.g., 6 years or 60 lbs). Be sure to check current laws in the state or province/territory where you intend to drive. WARNING 3. Route the tether strap over the head restraint. Make sure the strap is not twisted. Tether strap hook Allowing a child age 12 or under to sit in the front can result in injury or death if the passenger’s front airbag inflates.

Exterior Checks •  Make sure there are no obstructions on the windows, door mirrors, exterior lights, or other parts of the vehicle. •  Remove any frost, snow, or ice. •  Make sure the hood is securely closed. •  Make sure the tires are in good condition. •  Make sure there are no people or objects behind or around the vehicle. •  Take corners at slower speeds than you would with a passenger vehicle. •  Avoid sharp turns and abrupt maneuvers whenever possible. •  Do not modify your vehicle in any way that raises its center of gravity. •  Never carry more than 165 lbs (75 kg) of cargo on the roof rack (Acura accessory). In addition: •  During the first 600 miles (1,000 km) of operation, avoid sudden acceleration or full throttle operation so as not to damage the engine or powertrain. •  Avoid hard braking for the first 200 miles (300 km). You should also follow this when the brake pads are replaced. WARNING Improperly operating this vehicle on or off pavement can cause a crash or rollover in which you and your passengers can be seriously injured or killed. Follow all instructions and guidelines in this guide. Keep your speed low, and don’t drive faster than conditions permit. BLUETOOTH® HANDSFREELINK® •  Do not pile items higher than the seat height. •  Do not place anything in the front seat footwells. Make sure to secure the floor mats. •  If you have any animals on board, do not let them move freely in the vehicle. •  Securely close and lock all doors and the tailgate. •  Adjust your seating position, mirrors, and steering wheel properly. •  Be sure items placed on the floor behind the front seats cannot roll under the seats. •  Everyone in the vehicle must fasten their seat belt. Make sure that the indicators in the instrument panel come on when you start the vehicle, and go off soon after. AWD (All-Wheel Drive) with Intelligent Control System* When the AWD system senses a loss of front wheel traction, it automatically transfers some power to the rear wheels. This allows you to utilize all available traction and may increase mobility. You still need to exercise the same care when accelerating, steering, and braking that you would in a two-wheel drive vehicle. If you excessively spin all four wheels and overheat the system, only the front wheels receive power. Stop until the system cools down. NOTICE *if equipped 90 | | 91 INDEX Do not continuously spin the front tires of your vehicle. Continuously spinning the front tires can cause transmission or rear differential damage. VOICE COMMAND INDEX ACURALINK® •  Store or secure all items on board properly.

DRIVING NAVIGATION DRIVING TABLE OF CONTENTS Maximum Load Limit Carrying too much cargo or improperly storing it can affect your vehicle’s handling, stability, stopping distance, and tires, and make it unsafe. The maximum load for your vehicle is 870 lbs (395 kg). See the Tire and Loading Information label on the driver’s doorjamb. Cargo weight 570 lbs (259 kg) Max load 870 lbs (395 kg) Passenger weight 150 lbs x 5 = 750 lbs (68 kg x 5 = 340 kg) Cargo weight 120 lbs (55 kg) Label Example Example 2 SAFETY INFORMATION INSTRUMENT PANEL VEHICLE CONTROLS Passenger weight 150 lbs x 2 = 300 lbs (68 kg x 2 = 136 kg) WARNING The headlight aim on your vehicle was set by the factory, and does not need to be adjusted. However, if you regularly carry heavy items in the cargo area or pull a trailer, have the aiming readjusted at your dealer or by a qualified technician. CLIENT INFORMATION VOICE COMMAND INDEX This figure includes the total weight of all occupants, cargo, and accessories, and the tongue load if you are towing a trailer. Below are the steps for determining the correct load limit: 1. Locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs.” on your vehicle’s placard. 2. Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers that will be riding in your vehicle. 3. Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers from XXX kg or XXX lbs. 4. The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and luggage load capacity. For example, if the “XXX” amount equals 1,400 lbs. and there will be five 150 lb. passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 650 lbs. (1,400 - 750 (5 x 150) = 650 lbs.) 5. Determine the combined weight of luggage and cargo being loaded on the vehicle. That weight may not safely exceed the available cargo and luggage load capacity calculated in step 4. 6. If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will be transferred to your vehicle. Consult the Owner’s Manual to determine how this reduces the available cargo and luggage load capacity of your vehicle. Overloading or improper loading can affect handling and stability and cause a crash in which you can be hurt or killed. Follow all load limits and other loading guidelines in this guide. | 93 INDEX In addition, the total weight of the vehicle, all occupants, accessories, cargo, and trailer tongue load must not exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) or the Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR).

See the Owner’s Manual on the Owner Information CD or visit owners.acura.com (U.S.) or www.myacura.ca (Canada) for more information. When preparing to tow, and before driving away, be sure to check the following: •  Avoid towing a trailer during your vehicle’s first 600 miles (1,000 km). •  The vehicle has been properly serviced, and the suspension and the cooling system are in good operating condition. •  The trailer has been properly serviced and is in good condition. Total trailer weight •  All weights and loads are within limits. Never exceed the gross weight ratings. Maximum allowable weight of the trailer, cargo, and everything in or on it must not exceed 1,500 lbs (680 kg). Towing loads in excess of this can seriously affect vehicle handling and performance and can damage the engine and drivetrain. •  Check if all loads are within limits at a public scale. If a public scale is not available, add the estimated weight of your cargo load to the weight of your trailer (as quoted by the manufacturer) and the tongue load. •  The hitch, safety chains, and any other attachments are secure. Total load •  All items in or on the trailer are properly secured and cannot shift while you drive. HANDLING THE UNEXPECTED Towing Load Limits DRIVING SAFETY INFORMATION DRIVING NAVIGATION DRIVING VEHICLE CONTROLS •  Excessive tongue load reduces front tire traction and steering control.

CLIENT INFORMATION VOICE COMMAND INDEX | 119 INDEX *if equipped 118 | SPECIFICATIONS AUDIO AND CONNECTIVITY Before Repairing the Tire MAINTENANCE BLUETOOTH® HANDSFREELINK® If a tire has a small puncture, you can use the tire repair kit to temporarily repair it. The puncture must be smaller than 3/16-inch (4 mm) and not in the tire sidewall. Go to a dealer to have the full-size tire permanently repaired or replaced. HANDLING THE UNEXPECTED ACURALINK® Tire Repair Kit* DRIVING Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Required Federal Explanation Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.) As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability. Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale. Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly.

Refer to the driver’s doorjamb label or the specifications (see page 143) for the specified pressure. •  Underinflated tires wear unevenly, adversely affect handling and fuel economy, and are more likely to fail from overheating. •  Overinflated tires make your vehicle ride harshly, are more prone to road hazards, and wear unevenly. •  Every day before you drive, look at each of the tires. If one looks lower than the others, check the pressure with a tire gauge. Tire and Loading Information Label The label attached to the driver’s doorjamb provides necessary tire and loading information. Original tire sizes Number of people your vehicle can carry Proper cold tire pressure •  Measure the air pressure when tires are cold. This means the vehicle has been parked for at least 3 hours, or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km). If necessary, add or release air until the specified pressure is reached. If checked when hot, tire pressure can be as much as 4-6 psi (30-40 kPa, 0.3-0.5 kgf/cm2) higher than checked when cold. Total weight your vehicle can carry (do not exceed) •  At least once a month or before long trips, use a gauge to measure the pressure in all tires, including the spare. Even tires in good condition can lose 1-2 psi (10-20 kPa, 0.1-0.2 kgf/cm2) per month. SPECIFICATIONS VEHICLE CONTROLS Inflation Guidelines WARNING Using tires that are excessively worn or improperly inflated can cause a crash in which you can be seriously hurt or killed. Follow all instructions in this owner’s manual regarding tire inflation and maintenance. MAINTENANCE Inspection Guidelines Every time you inflate the tires, check for the following: •  Any damage to tires, including bumps, bulges, cuts, splits, or cracks in the side or tread. Remove any foreign objects and inspect for air leaks. Replace tires if you see fabric or cord. •  Uneven or excessive tread wear. Have a dealer check the wheel alignment. •  Cracks or other damage around the valve stems. Wear Indicators Example of a wear indicator mark Replace your tires with radials of the same size, load range, speed rating, and maximum cold tire pressure rating (as shown on the tire’s sidewall). Using tires of a different size or construction can cause certain vehicle systems to work incorrectly. It is best to replace all four tires at the same time. If that isn’t possible, replace the front or rear tires in pairs. If you change or replace a wheel, make sure that the wheel’s specifications match those of the original wheels. Only use TPMS-specified wheels approved for your vehicle. WARNING Installing improper tires on your vehicle can affect handling and stability. This can cause a crash in which you can be seriously hurt or killed. Always use the size and type of tires recommended in the owner’s manual. | 137 INDEX 136 | VOICE COMMAND INDEX The groove where the wear indicator is located is 1/16 inch (1.6 mm) shallower than elsewhere on the tire. If the tread has worn so low that the indicator is exposed, replace the tire. Worn out tires have poor traction on wet roads.

HANDLING THE UNEXPECTED BLUETOOTH® HANDSFREELINK® Tire Information DRIVING ACURALINK® MAINTENANCE NAVIGATION MAINTENANCE TABLE OF CONTENTS VISUAL INDEX Tire Labeling The life of your tires is dependent on many factors, including driving habits, road conditions, vehicle loading, inflation pressure, maintenance history, speed, and environmental conditions (even when the tires are not in use). The tires that came on your vehicle have a number of markings. Those you should be aware of are described below. Here is an example of what each marking means: P235/60R18 102V Example Tire size Tire •  P: vehicle type (passenger) Identification Number (TIN) •  235: tire width in millimeters Maximum •  60: aspect ratio (tire section height as a tire load percentage of its width) Maximum tire pressure •  R: tire construction code (radial) Tire size •  18: rim diameter in inches •  102: load index (code indicating maximum load tire can carry) •  V: speed symbol (code indicating maximum speed rating) In addition to regular inspections and inflation pressure maintenance, it is recommended that you have annual inspections performed once the tires reach five years old. All tires, including the spare, should be removed from service after 10 years from the date of manufacture, regardless of their condition or state of wear. Winter Tires If driving on snowy or frozen roads, mount all season tires marked “M+S”, snow tires, or tire chains; reduce speed; and maintain sufficient distance between vehicles when driving. For winter tires, select the size and load ranges that are the same as the original tires, and mount them to all four wheels.

ACURALINK® Glossary of Tire Terminology Cold Tire Pressure – The tire air pressure when the vehicle has been parked for at least three hours or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km). Load Rating – The maximum load that a tire is rated to carry for a given inflation pressure. Maximum Inflation Pressure – The maximum tire air pressure that the tire can hold. Maximum Load Rating – The load rating for a tire at the maximum permissible inflation pressure for that tire. Recommended Inflation Pressure – The cold tire inflation pressure recommended by the manufacturer. Treadwear Indicators (TWI) – The projections within the principal grooves designed to give a visual indication of the degrees of wear of the tread. | 139 INDEX 138 | Year Week VOICE COMMAND INDEX BLUETOOTH® HANDSFREELINK® Traction devices that are the wrong size or improperly installed can damage your vehicle’s brake lines, suspension, body, and wheels. Stop driving if they are hitting any part of the vehicle. DOT B97R FW6X 2209 DOT: This indicates that the tire meets all requirements of the U.S. Department of Transportation. B97R: Manufacturer’s identification mark. FW6X: Tire type code. 22 09: Date of manufacture. CLIENT INFORMATION NOTICE Tire Identification Number (TIN) The tire identification number (TIN) is a group of numbers and letters that look like the example shown. TIN is located on the sidewall of the tire. SPECIFICATIONS AUDIO AND CONNECTIVITY Install tire chains on the front tires only. Because your vehicle has limited tire clearance, we strongly recommend using the following chains: MAINTENANCE INSTRUMENT PANEL Tire Chains TABLE OF CONTENTS VISUAL INDEX Temperature The tires on your vehicle meet all U.S. Federal Safety Requirements. All tires are also graded for treadwear, traction, and temperature performance according to Department of Transportation (DOT) standards. The following explains these gradings. The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tire’s resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel. Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to degenerate and reduce tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to sudden tire failure. The grade C corresponds to a level of performance which all passenger car tires must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109. Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel than the minimum required by law. Uniform Tire Quality Grading Quality grades can be found where applicable on the tire sidewall between tread shoulder and maximum section width. SAFETY INFORMATION All passenger car tires must conform to Federal Safety Requirements in addition to these grades. WARNING: The temperature grade for this tire is established for a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded. Excessive speed, underinflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause heat buildup and possible tire failure. MAINTENANCE Treadwear VEHICLE CONTROLS AUDIO AND CONNECTIVITY WARNING: The traction grade assigned to this tire is based on straight-ahead braking traction tests, and does not include acceleration, cornering, hydroplaning, or peak traction characteristics. SPECIFICATIONS The treadwear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and one-half (1 1/2) times as well on the government course as a tire graded 100. The relative performance of tires depends upon the actual conditions of their use, however, and may depart significantly from the norm due to variations in driving habits, service practices, and differences in road characteristics and climate. Traction The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B, and C. Those grades represent the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement as measured under controlled conditions on specified government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C may have poor traction performance.

Q: Why doesn’t the vehicle start when I press the ENGINE START/STOP button? A: The brake pedal must be pressed to start the engine. Contact Us Q: What is the AUTO setting on my headlight lever?
