Sincerely, Jerry Chenkin Executive Vice President 3 Table of Contents The Acura Five Year No Small Print Warranty. Your Secure Future Is Guaranteed. WARRANTY Because your new Acura is an important personal investment, we designed the Acura No Small Print Warranty to act as a guaranteed investment certificate. In fact, its remarkable protection takes the incredible value of the Acura you have invested in, and increases it even further. The Acura Five Year/100,000 Km No Small Print Warranty set a new industry standard when it was introduced. Today it continues to be a benchmark in customer protection and owner satisfaction. The warranty information on the following pages covers all new Acura vehicles manufactured by Honda Motor Company Ltd., sold by authorized Acura dealers within Canada, and normally operated in Canada. For your added peace of mind, it is backed by Honda Canada Inc., on behalf of Honda Motor Co. Ltd., Tokyo, Japan. Wherever you see the word “Acura”, you may assume that it refers to either Honda Canada Inc., or Honda Motor Company Ltd., whichever is more appropriate to the text. 4 In addition to the Acura Five Year/100,000 Km No Small Print Warranty, you and your new Acura are also protected by an additional series of warranties for items such as emission controls, body corrosion, and more. Specific details on these warranties are also included in this section. Take a few moments to review them. You’ll find them refreshingly straightforward, and very reassuring.

Kilometres WARRANTY Major components 20,000 40,000 60,000 80,000 100,000 130,000 Unlimited The owner of the vehicle is responsible to report to an authorized Acura dealer in Canada any items which they feel are defective, and request warranty coverage, if applicable, within the terms of the warranty. The vehicle must be made available to the dealer for warranty repairs within the warranty period. 5 Next Table of Contents Acura Warranty Protection Makes Major Components a Minor Concern ENGINE WARRANTY Remarkable as the Five Year /100,000 Km No Small Print Warranty is, there are some things about it that make it even more so. For instance, you pay nothing extra for this extensive coverage. It’s as much a part of your new Acura as the wheels and engine. Also, there are no deductibles to pay should your Acura ever require repairs covered by this warranty. And, if you sell your Acura before the warranty expires, the Acura Five Year /100,000 Km No Small Print Warranty transfers to the new owner - at no charge. A welcome fact that can make your Acura worth even more at trade-in time. Here’s a check list of all the items covered by the Acura Five Year /100,000 Km No Small Print Warranty. It goes well beyond traditional power train warranties to include: * Timing belts are considered to be a maintenance item. If replacement at or before (at the customer’s discretion) the scheduled interval (see the owner’s manual) is required, such replacement is the vehicle owner’s responsibility and is not covered by warranty. ** Always use Acura 5W30 full synthetic motor oil, or an equivalent synthetic oil that meets the HTO-06 standard. 6 ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ Cylinder block and all internal parts Cylinder head and all internal parts Camshaft and valve train *Timing belt, balancer belt and tensioner (if equipped) Oil pressure switch Oil pump Oil pan Seals and gaskets Flywheel EFI main relay V6 water passage gasket **Turbocharger and all internal parts Intake and Exhaust Manifolds Engine Mounts Next Table of Contents ENGINE COOLING TRANSAXLE Transmission and differential housing and all internal parts Transmission cooler Driveshafts CV joints, including boots 4WD transfer case CLUTCH ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ Clutch master cylinder Slave cylinder Release and pilot bearings Seals and pressure plates Cooling fan thermoswitch Water pump FUEL Fuel pump ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ Fuel level sending unit OCCUPANT PROTECTION (EXCLUDING FRICTION MATERIALS) ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ Radiator Seat belts Seat belt warning control unit SRS air bag module SRS control unit/sensors SRS harness Steering gearbox and all internal parts and seals Steering rack end bushings Tie rods and tie rod ends Steering fluid cooler WARRANTY ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ STEERING Power steering pump and hoses ELECTRICAL ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ ✓ Starter motor and relay Alternator Voltage regulator/rectifier Ignition switch Headlight switch Windshield wiper switch Windshield wiper motor (front) Any components not specifically listed above are excluded from the Major Component Warranty. 7 Table of Contents Acura Warranty Protection Makes Major Occupant Protection Components a Minor Concern.

All Acura warranties begin on the date the vehicle is delivered to the first retail purchaser or, if the vehicle is leased or placed in service as a demonstration vehicle, the date the vehicle is first placed in service. 1. YOUR DISTRIBUTOR’S WARRANTY. Four Years or 80,000 Km, whichever occurs first. This warranty is your guarantee that under normal use and maintenance, your new Acura (including all major components) will be free from any defects in material and workmanship. If any defects should be found and reported to an Acura dealer during the warranty period, necessary repairs and/or replacements with new Acura parts or Acura-approved equivalents will be made at no cost to you for parts and labour immediately upon acknowledgement by Acura that such defects are attributable to faulty material or workmanship at the time of manufacture. Please note, light bulbs and wiper inserts are limited to one year/20,000 Km, whichever comes first. Any other exceptions to this warranty are outlined on pages 1719 of this booklet. WARRANTY While the Acura No Small Print Warranty is one of the best in the business, your Acura’s protection goes even further by providing you with a comprehensive safety net of additional warranty packages. Like the Acura No Small Print Warranty, there is no extra charge for this protection. These warranty packages may be transferred to a new owner at no additional charge. And there is no deductible charge for any repair made under them. For up to four years from the original vehicle registration date, towing to the nearest Acura dealer is also covered if the failure is warrantable and as a result, the vehicle is inoperable or unsafe to drive. As is the case with all warranties, there are some exceptions to the rule. Differences in driving styles, regional driving conditions, and items which, through normal wear, require regular maintenance or replacement are exempted from warranty coverage. We have taken great care to see that they have been properly highlighted in this booklet. We think you will find these addenda to be most reasonable, and of little ground for concern. 9 Table of Contents Additional Warranties For Your Extra Protection. 2. YOUR MAJOR COMPONENT WARRANTY. WARRANTY Five years or 100,000 Km, whichever occurs first. This warranty takes over upon expiry of your Distributor’s Warranty. It is free to the original owner, and transferrable to subsequent owners upon registration with Acura. Your Major Component Warranty coverage is limited to the items listed on pages 6 - 8. Your Major Component Warranty guarantees that, under normal use and maintenance, all specified major components will continue to be free from defects in material and workmanship. Should any defects be found in these components and the vehicle is made available to an Acura dealer within the warranty period, necessary repairs and replacements with new or remanufactured Acura parts or Acuraapproved equivalents will be made at no cost to you for parts and labour immediately upon acknowledgement by Acura that such defects are attributable to faulty material or workmanship at the time of manufacture. Please refer to pages 17-19 for exclusions or situations under which these items may be excluded from coverage. 3. YOUR EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEMS WARRANTY. Four years or 80,000 Km, whichever occurs first. This warranty guarantees that the emission control 10 systems in your new Acura conform with all published Canadian Federal and Provincial emission control standards. Any defects in material and workmanship in the emission control systems which cause non-compliance with those standards will be repaired or replaced with new Acura parts or Acura-approved parts at no cost to you. This will be done immediately upon acknowledgement by Acura that such defects are attributable to faulty material or workmanship at the time of original manufacture. If your vehicle is registered in a province where that province or your local jurisdiction has a mandatory Inspection and Maintenance (I/M) program, you may also be eligible for Emissions Performance Warranty coverage for a period of 4 years/80,000 km, whichever comes first. Under this warranty, if your vehicle fails an approved I/M test, Acura will repair, replace or adjust any necessary emission control system part listed on pages 11 and 12 without charge for labour, diagnosis or parts. Please turn to pages 17-19 of this booklet for a brief explanation of exceptions to this warranty.

YOUR RUST PERFORATION WARRANTY. 5. YOUR SURFACE CORROSION WARRANTY. Four years or 80,000 Km, whichever comes first. Surface corrosion is defined as corrosion affecting the readily visible surface area of any components of the vehicle’s body. It does not include the vehicle underbody, external damage to paint or plated surfaces or corrosion caused by stone chips or other impacts. This warranty guarantees that the surface of your new Acura’s body will be free from any readily visible corrosion for a period of four years/80,000 km from the date of first registration. Additionally, this warranty guarantees that your new Acura will be free from any paint related defects for four years/80,000 Km. If any defects which cause perforation or surface corrosion should be found and reported to an Acura dealer during the periods stated, Acura will repair or replace such defect to any original body panels, including those repaired or replaced under this warranty, provided that you demonstrate adherence to the care and maintenance guidelines as outlined in this booklet. All defective parts replaced under this warranty become the property of Acura. Please note, to retain full warranty coverage, body panels replaced due to accident or damage, must be genuine Acura parts or Acura-approved parts. Also, paint damage caused by road debris, acid rain, tree sap, bird droppings and industrial fallout are not covered by this warranty. You will find further details on pages 17-19 of this booklet. WARRANTY Five years. No distance limit. This warranty is your guarantee that your new Acura vehicle’s body will be free from perforation due to corrosion from the inner surface through to the outer surface of the body for a period of five years from the date of first registration. Components of the vehicle body include any moving or non-moving metal parts of the vehicle chassis, but do not include those components which form part of the vehicle power train, steering, suspension, braking, cooling, heating or exhaust systems, or metal trim and mouldings. Application of additional corrosion inhibiting materials is unnecessary and not recommended by Acura. 13 Table of Contents WARRANTY Additional Warranties For Your Extra Protection. 14 6.

This warranty guarantees that genuine Acura replacement mufflers will be free from defects in material and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser of that muffler owns the Acura vehicle on which it was installed by an authorized Acura dealer. If any defects should be found and reported to an Acura dealer, replacement will be made at no cost to you for parts or labour. Exclusions to this warranty are noted on pages 17-19 of this booklet. 11.

Acura recognizes that your vehicle could develop a serious problem needing immediate repair when you are away from home and it was necessary to perform that repair at a facility other than an Acura dealer. Acura will reimburse you for the repair if: • The repair would normally be covered by one of the warranties in this booklet. and • All Acura dealers within 150 Km of the breakdown were closed at the time, or there were no Acura dealers within 150 Km. and • The vehicle was immobile, or attempting to drive the vehicle would cause further damage or be unsafe. and • The repair was necessary to permit you to continue your trip to your destination or your home. For reimbursement of repair costs, go to your local Acura dealer. You must show a copy of the paid receipt, and the replaced part(s). The dealer will reimburse you for the parts and you will be reimbursed for labour at a geographically-appropriate labour rate for Acura’s recommended time allowance. Warranty coverage on your Acura is provided by Honda Canada Inc. through Canadian Acura dealers. Canadians who are in the U.S. on vacation, or who are temporarily located in the U.S. for business reasons may obtain warranty coverage from a local U.S. Acura dealer. Because Canadian Warranty Coverage may differ from U.S. Warranties, owners of Canadian vehicles should have documentation with them to confirm the original date of purchase of their vehicle, entitlement to warranty coverage, as well as a copy of this Warranty book to indicate their applicable warranty coverage to the U.S. dealer. RELOCATING OUTSIDE CANADA OR EXPORTING YOUR VEHICLE New Acuras sold in Canada are designed to comply with Canadian safety and emissions standards. If you plan to export your Acura to another country and register it there, we recommend that you contact the Acura distributor or vehicle import agency in that country to determine their requirements. Honda Canada Inc. does not have this information. Also, be advised that any modifications to your Acura that may be required to meet another country’s standards may be expensive, and getting your Acura serviced in another country may be difficult. Table of Contents Acura Plus LEASES. If you plan to drive your new Acura for a longer period of time or a higher number of kilometres than covered by the Acura warranties already mentioned, Acura Plus will be of interest to you. Acura Plus offers you a choice of protection packages. Ask your Acura dealer for the Acura Plus package that meets your needs. These protection packages are: You can now protect your lease investment with an Upgradeable Plus for Lease (“UPL”). Here’s how it works: at the time you lease your vehicle, you can pick up a Comprehensive Plan for the First Period. If you later purchase your vehicle, or determine that you will be driving more than the kilometre term purchased in the First Period of your lease, you have the option to upgrade your UPL Plan for the Second Period of Coverage. The Second Period of Coverage must be purchased before the First Period of Coverage matures. Regardless of whether you lease or purchase your vehicle, you will find the coverage to be both extensive and of the superior quality that is synonymous with the Acura name. Plans are transferable under most conditions, to the next owner, making your vehicle investment that much more appealing.

CARE In designing and building your new Acura we have employed some of the most advanced rust-inhibiting treatments and techniques available. Double-sided, electro-galvanized steel has been used extensively and the rugged unit-body has been designed to eliminate many potential rust areas. Our attention to these details, combined with a little extra attention on your part can help keep your Acura sparkling and rust-free a lot longer, especially when you know the tricks of the trade. Rust is caused by two factors. The first is the accumulation of dirt and moisture in hard to get at cavities and other areas under your car. The second is the removal of paint and protective coatings on the outside and underneath the vehicle caused by stones, gravel or minor accidents. While it is difficult to generalize, certain environmental conditions affect the rate of corrosion. Regions which experience high relative humidity, especially when temperatures are above the freezing point will be subject to accelerated corrosion. Also, regions where the atmosphere is affected by industrial pollution or where salt is used for de-icing roads are prime candidates for increased rates of corrosion. 24 A GOOD WASHING DOES MORE GOOD THAN YOU’D THINK. You should wash your vehicle at regular intervals, and at least once a week under adverse conditions. When washing, be sure that your Acura is in the shade and the paint surface is cool. Begin by softening up the dirt on the underside of the body and radiator area with a jet of water. Then rinse the entire body until the dirt is loosened up. Next, wash the dirt off using a sponge and plenty of soapy water. A soap specialized for washing vehicles is available from your Acura dealer. Or a mild dish washing detergent mixed with fresh, clean, lukewarm (not hot) water may be used. After soaping, the vehicle should be rinsed thoroughly. After each washing, take a moment to inspect the body finish for any nicks or scratches in the paint which could give rust a place to begin. Also, check the underside of the vehicle to ensure that it is free from built-up dirt and that all protective undercoatings are intact. Be careful to clear out any drain holes in the bottom of the doors and tailgates. If your Acura has ventilation holes in the bottom of either the rocker panels or the rear fenders, they should also be cleared out. You should also inspect the Table of Contents TOUCH UP TIPS. If any metal has been exposed due to scratches or chips from road debris, the area should be treated immediately, by your Acura dealer, a qualified auto body repair shop or yourself. If you choose to do the job yourself, here are some important pointers: 1. Scrape the damaged surface completely clean of any rust with sandpaper, a penknife or similar object. 2. Apply an anti-rust primer to the area and let it dry . 3. After drying, sand the edges for smoothness without exposing more metal. 4. Apply the matching touch-up paint which is available from your Acura dealer’s Parts Department. If only the exterior paint has been chipped, and no metal has been exposed, simply sand the edges smooth and apply the matching body paint. Anytime you see an indication of either cosmetic or external corrosion, or perforation corrosion, however caused, you should attend to it immediately to prevent further damage. CARE strips adjoining all windows to ensure that they are diverting water from entering the body panels. Hot water is not recommended, especially in freezing conditions as it may cause painted surfaces to crack. Also, in freezing conditions, do not wash your vehicle unless you can dry it completely. Door locks and rubber seals are particularly sensitive to damage caused by freezing. During the winter months it is important to clean your Acura’s underside with either high pressure water or steam. This should include the wheelhousings, bumpers, the muffler, tailpipe and brackets. If you are unable to perform this yourself, you should locate a car wash equipped to perform this service. In choosing a car wash you should be aware that recycled cleaning solutions which have not been adequately treated have proven to be contributing factors to corrosion. Check with your car wash operator. These recommendations also apply to vehicles used in areas known to be above normal in atmospheric salts (such as coastal regions) and those having above normal atmospheric corrosives such as sulphur dioxide. Next 25 Table of Contents With a Little Care, Your Acura Investment Will Pay Even Greater Dividends Should your Acura sustain more serious body damage, you should have it restored to original condition by your Acura dealer or a qualified auto body shop. If you choose the latter, make certain that all replaced or repaired parts have been protected against corrosion. Also, to maintain your Rust Perforation and Surface Corrosion warranties, ensure that only genuine Acura parts or Acura-approved parts are used as replacements. CARE CHECK THE PASSENGER AND CARGO COMPARTMENTS. Not all corrosion begins on the outside of your vehicle. Moisture is often trapped under the floor carpets or trunk mats. In time, it can corrode and weaken the floor and trunk panels. You can help prevent this by removing any loose protective mats and allowing them, and the area under them, to dry. The use of a wet-type vacuum cleaner will also be helpful. Certain cargoes, such as chemicals, fertilizer, cleaners, and de-icing salts are particularly corrosive in nature. Transporting these materials makes it necessary for owners to take special precautions to protect their vehicles from related corrosion. 26 CHOOSE THE RIGHT MUD AND STONE SHIELDS. If you do much of your driving on gravel and loose stone surfaces, or on roads that are heavily salted, consider buying mud or stone shields which mount on the lower body edge behind each wheel. For best results, the shield should extend as close to the road as is practical. Small, purely decorative shields may be of little benefit. Also, be sure the fitting of such shields is also corrosion resistant. Your Acura dealer has mud and stone shields specifically designed for your Acura and will be pleased to properly install them for you. GARAGING YOUR ACURA. Many different factors will influence your decision whether to garage your new Acura or not. If the garage is poorly ventilated or damp from driving the car in and out when wet or covered with snow, it is probably better to keep the vehicle outdoors. This is particularly true when the temperature is below freezing. However, if the vehicle is used less often and the garage is kept clean and dry, you should keep it garaged. Next Table of Contents ALLOY WHEELS FABRICS Clean your Acura's aluminum alloy wheels as you do the rest of the exterior. Only use a mild, non-antibacterial detergent and soft brush or sponge to clean the wheels, and rinse them thoroughly. The wheels have a protective clear-coat that keeps the aluminum from corroding and tarnishing. Using harsh chemicals, including some commercial wheel cleaners, or stiff brushes can damage this clear-coat. Vacuum dirt and dust out of the material frequently. For general cleaning, use a solution of mild soap and lukewarm water, letting it air dry. To clean off hard to remove spots, use a commercially available fabric cleaner. Test it on a hidden area of fabric first, to make sure it does not bleach or stain the fabric. Follow the instructions that come with the cleaner. CARPETS Remove dirt and dust with a vacuum cleaner. Wipe the vinyl with a soft cloth dampened in a solution of mild soap and water. Use the same solution with a softbristle brush on more difficult spots. You can also use commercially available spray or foam-type vinyl cleaners. SEAT BELTS If your seat belts get dirty, you can use a soft brush with a mixture of mild non-antibacterial soap and warm water to clean them. Do not use bleach, dye, or cleaning solvents. They can weaken the belt material. Let the belts air-dry before you use the car. You can use a clothes pin or binder clip fastener to keep the belt extended until it dries. CARE Vacuum the carpeting frequently to remove dirt. Use a foam-type carpet cleaner. Follow the instructions that come with the cleaner, applying it with a sponge or soft brush. Keep the carpeting as dry as possible by not adding water to the foam. VINYL SURFACES WINDOWS Clean the windows, inside and out, with a commercially available glass cleaner. You can also use a mixture of one part white vinegar to ten parts water. This will remove the haze that builds up on the inside of the windows. Use a soft cloth or paper towels to clean all glass and clear plastic surfaces. The rear window defogger wires are bonded to the inside of the glass. Wiping vigorously up and down can dislodge and break the defogger wires. When cleaning the window, use gentle pressure and wipe side to side. 27 Table of Contents The Parts And Service Your Acura Started With Are The Best To Stay With. MAINTENANCE No one has the investment in genuine Acura parts, or a staff with the cumulative years of Acura service experience your Acura dealer does. That’s a tremendous investment. Take advantage of it, and it can also be an investment that rewards you handsomely. For one thing, you’ll always know that your Acura is getting nothing less than genuine, guaranteed Acura parts... designed by Acura for nothing less than the best fit and finish. And you can be sure they’ll deliver all the performance and reliability that was engineered into your Acura in the first place. The same thinking applies to your Acura dealer’s service. Factory-trained technicians, using the latest diagnostic equipment and up-to-the-minute factory service bulletins, are simply better qualified to do a better job. And, of course, their work is guaranteed. In terms of peace of mind, those two considerations alone are worth a great deal. And, when combined with your Acura dealer’s highly competitive pricing, plus a regular schedule of special promotions, chances 28 are you’ll also realize some substantial savings. Then there’s the established fact that people who maintain their Acura to original equipment standards can expect fewer mechanical problems plus more value for their Acura at trade-in time. This may make you feel uncomfortably like a captive audience, but we simply can’t guarantee the quality of another manufacturer’s parts or the calibre of someone else’s service. It all comes down to this. We set very high standards for the cars we manufacture as well as our replacement parts and service. Chances are, those high standards are one of the reasons you chose Acura in the first place. So, why risk compromising them now that you are a new Acura owner? Your Acura dealer offers parts and service at very competitive prices. And along with it, quality you can count on. So keep the percentages in your favour by keeping your Acura 100% Acura. Table of Contents Preventive Maintenance. The Little Things You Do Can Add Up To A Lot. 2. THE FIRST STEP IN PROTECTING YOUR FINISH. Some parts of your new Acura will require servicing and replacement more regularly than others. Keeping your Acura’s maintenance on schedule also helps keep your warranties valid. Twice a year you should give your Acura a good waxing. This will help protect the finish. Always wax your Acura in the shade when the paint surface is cool. Covering over exposed metal helps prevent rust. So, if you find any minor scratches in the paint, your Acura dealer has touchup paint to match your Acura’s body colour. Dirt embedded in fabric causes it to wear more quickly, so it’s a good idea to shampoo your Acura’s interior occasionally - just like you do your home furniture. PLEASE FOLLOW THE MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS LISTED IN THE OWNER’S MANUAL, INDICATED BY THE MAINTENANCE MINDER (IF EQUIPPED) OR VISIT WWW.ACURA.CA IN THE SECTION ACURA OWNERS, SELECT ACURA SERVICE & PARTS, AND CLICK ON MAINTENANCE CALCULATOR. Between visits to your Acura dealer for scheduled maintenance, your Acura will respond most positively to a little care and attention from you. Here are a few things you can do to help reduce the possibility of future repairs. 1. WASH WITH CARE. Caked up mud and salt on the underbody are a prime cause of body corrosion. So, take care to flush out the underbody with a garden hose or at the car wash. The chart on page 31 shows key areas you shouldn’t overlook. 3. DON’T OVERLOOK LOOKING UNDER THE HOOD. All automobile engines tend to consume a little engine oil. This varies depending on your driving habits and the type of driving you do. Every second gas-up, it’s wise to check your Acura’s oil level. If you use a “self-serve” gas station, check the oil yourself. MAINTENANCE RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE 4. MAINTAIN ENGINE EFFICIENCY. CHECK YOUR COOLANT. The water and anti-freeze in your Acura’s cooling system helps keep it running at the proper and most efficient temperature. This mixture evaporates slowly, therefore it should be checked periodically. Before the winter season, let your Acura dealer check the quality of your anti-freeze and restore it to its proper strength. 29 Table of Contents 5. A DIRTY AIR FILTER COSTS PERFORMANCE. MAINTENANCE Your Acura’s engine needs a good supply of air for efficient fuel combustion. Over time, its air filter can become clogged, reducing performance and fuel economy. Ask your Acura dealer to inspect and replace this filter according to your maintenance schedule, especially if you do most of your driving on dusty roads. 6. FRESH WIPERS MAKE A CLEAN SWEEP. Windshield wipers wear out through use and damage from the sun’s ultra-violet rays. Because clear vision is essential to good driving, check your wipers from time to time. Your Acura dealer will have exact replacements if and when you need them. It’s also a good idea to carry a spare. 7. CLEAR THE ROAD AHEAD. Always keep your windshield washer reservoir topped up. And, periodically inspect the washer jets to make sure they’re free of dirt and in good operating condition. 30 8. WORN TIRES WARN OF OTHER PROBLEMS. Tires that are over-inflated or under-inflated will not only have a negative effect on your Acura’s precise handling, they’ll also wear unevenly. Check your tires occasionally to see that they are inflated to the level recommended in your owner’s manual. Check for uneven tread wear. It’s a sign that precision adjustments are needed. Also, be sure to have your Acura dealer rotate your tires regularly to help extend tread life. ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT MEANS ORIGINAL QUALITY. Genuine Acura parts are the same as those which came with your new Acura. So their fit, quality and performance will be nothing less than Acura perfect. Your Acura dealer always has a good stock on hand for over-the-counter quick replacement when you need them. Table of Contents A Good Wash Up Keeps Rust Down. 1. The area above the subframe may be washed out through access under the hood and from under the vehicle. 2. Wash the inside of the front and rear wheelhousings to prevent dirt and salt build-up. 3. Dirt and salt tend to build up on the control arm pivot mounts. A blast from your garden hose will keep them clear. MAINTENANCE Eliminate build-ups of dirt and salt from your Acura’s underbody, and you’ll be doing a lot to help eliminate rust. Here are the prime locations that need a good hosing out from time to time. ➤ 4. The inside of the rear bumper can trap dirt and salt. Rinse it out occasionally. 5. Spray the radiator fins from the back side (even behind the fan) to rinse away salt and sand that may accumulate in the radiator fins. 31 Next Table of Contents Dealers / Répertoire des concessionnaires Dealer Concessionnaire Address Adresse Phone Téléphone Fax Fax NORTHWEST ACURA 125 CROWFOOT WAY N.W.
