Information on Honda IMA System
POWER CONTROL UNIT (PCU)
IMA MOTOR
12 VOLT BATTERY
The Honda IMA (Integrated Motor
Assist) System provides you with
better fuel economy. An electric
motor assists the vehicle’s petrol
engine when accelerating, and
reduces the load on the engine to
improve the fuel economy. When
decelerating, the turning wheels
activate the electric motor, which
generates electric power to charge
the IMA battery. When you come to
stop, an auto idle stop function shuts
off the engine under certain
conditions (see page 229 ).
The IMA battery’s voltage is
extremely high (100 volts). This
battery is located under the luggage
area and there are no maintenance
tasks you can safely perform.
Consult your authorized dealer when
maintenance or repair is needed.

Important Precautions on Honda IMA System
In case of an accident
If the vehicle is damaged or collapsed during a crash, high voltage from damaged electric parts may cause serious
injury if you touch them. Never touch high voltage parts and related wiring (orange cables).
If electrolyte leaks from the battery, be careful not to let it get in your eyes or on your skin. If this occurs, flush with
water for at least 15 minutes, then immediately call a physician.
In the case of an electrical fire, we recommend the use of a fire extinguisher. If water must be used to extinguish a
fire, ensure that a large amount is used as smaller amounts can aggravate the fire further.
Battery Disposal Information
Your vehicle is equipped with a 100-volt Nickel-Metal Hydride battery. Handling of this battery requires special
knowledge and skills. Always consult your local Honda Dealer/Distributor for information on correct battery disposal
procedures.

Important Safety Precautions
You’ll find many safety
recommendations throughout this
section, and throughout this manual.
The recommendations on this page
are the ones we consider to be the
most important.
Always Wear Your Seat Belt
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 (see page 16 ).
Restrain All Children
Children age 12 and under should
ride properly restrained in a back
seat, not the front seat. Infants and
small children should be restrained
in a child restraint system. Larger
children should use a booster seat
and a lap/shoulder belt until they
can use the belt properly without a
booster seat (see pages 34 − 60 ).
6
Driver and Passenger Safety
Be Aware of Airbag Hazards
While airbags can save lives, they
can cause serious or fatal injuries to
occupants who sit too close to them,
or are not properly restrained.
Infants, young children, and short
adults are at the greatest risk. Be
sure to follow all instructions and
warnings in this manual.
12/04/18 14:29:31 42TF2C00_012
Important Safety Precautions
Don’t Drink and Drive
Alcohol and driving don’t mix. Even
one drink can reduce your ability to
respond to changing conditions, and
your reaction time gets worse with
every additional drink. So don’t drink
and drive, and don’t let your friends
drink and drive, either.
Pay Appropriate Attention to the
Task of Driving Safely
Engaging in mobile 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 attention
away from driving.
Control Your Speed
Excessive speed is a major factor in
crash injuries and deaths. Generally,
the higher the speed, the greater the
risk, but serious injuries can also
occur at lower speeds. Never drive
faster than is safe for current
conditions, regardless of the
maximum speed posted.
Keep Your Vehicle in Safe
Condition
Having a tyre blowout or a
mechanical failure can be extremely
hazardous. To reduce the possibility
of such problems, check your tyre
pressures and condition frequently,
and perform all regularly scheduled
maintenance (see page 249 ).

zones, a collapsible steering column,
and tensioners that tighten the front
seat belts in a crash.
However, you and your passengers
can’t take full advantage of these
features unless you remain sitting in
the correct position and always wear
your seat belts. In fact, some safety
features can contribute to injuries if
they are not used properly.
The following pages explain how you
can take an active role in protecting
yourself and your passengers.
12/04/18 14:29:50 42TF2C00_014
Your Vehicle’s Safety Features
Seat Belts
Your vehicle is equipped with seat
belts in all seating positions.
Your seat belt system also includes
an indicator on the instrument panel
and a beeper to remind you and your
passengers to fasten your seat belts.
Why Wear Seat Belts
Seat belts are the single most
effective safety device for adults and
larger children. (Infants and smaller
children must be properly restrained
in child restraint systems.)
Not wearing a seat belt properly
increases the chance of serious
injury or death in a crash, even
though your vehicle has airbags.
In most countries, there is a law
covering the use of seat belts. Please
take time to familiarize yourself with
the legal requirements of the
countries in which you will drive.
Not wearing a seat belt
properly increases the
chance of 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.
When properly worn, seat belts:
Keep you connected to the vehicle
so you can take advantage of the
vehicle’s built-in safety features.
Help protect you in almost every
type of crash, including:
− frontal impacts
− side impacts
− rear impacts
− rollovers
Help keep you from being thrown
against the inside of the vehicle
and against other occupants.
Keep you from being thrown out
of the vehicle.
Help keep you in a good position
should the airbags ever deploy. A
good position reduces the risk of
injury from an inflating airbag and
allows you to get the best
advantage from the airbag.

Your Vehicle’s Safety Features
Of course, seat belts cannot
completely protect you in every
crash. But in most cases, seat belts
can reduce your risk of serious
injury.
What You Should Do:
Always wear your seat belt, and
make sure you wear it properly.
WARNING:
Seat belts are designed to bear upon
the bony structure of the body, and
should be worn low across the front
of the pelvis or the pelvis, chest and
shoulders, as applicable; wearing the
lap section of the belt across the
abdominal area must be avoided.
Seat belts should be adjusted as
firmly as possible, consistent with
comfort, to provide the protection for
which they have been designed. A
slack belt will greatly reduce the
protection afforded to the wearer.
Belts should not be worn with straps
twisted.
Each belt assembly must only be used
by one occupant; it is dangerous to
put a belt around a child being carried
on the occupant’s lap.

Your Vehicle’s Safety Features
Airbags
Your vehicle has a supplemental
restraint system (SRS) with front
airbags to help protect the heads and
chests of the driver and a front seat
passenger during a moderate to
severe frontal collision (see page
28 for more information on how
your front airbags work).
Your vehicle also has side airbags to
help protect the upper torso of the
driver or a front seat passenger
during a moderate to severe side
impact (see page 29 for more
information on how your side airbags
work).
In addition, your vehicle has side
curtain airbags to help protect the
heads of the driver, front passenger,
and passengers in the outer rear
seating positions during a moderate
to severe side or front impact (see
page 31 for more information on how
your side curtain airbags work).

12/04/18 14:30:11 42TF2C00_017
Your Vehicle’s Safety Features
The most important things you need
to know about your airbags are:
Airbags do not replace seat belts.
They are designed to supplement
the seat belts.
Airbags offer no protection in rear
collisions, or minor frontal or side
collisions.
Airbags can pose serious hazards.
To do their job, airbags must
inflate with tremendous force. So
while airbags help save lives, they
can cause minor injuries or more
serious or even fatal injuries if
occupants are not properly
restrained or sitting properly.
12
Driver and Passenger Safety
What you should do: 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.
The rest of this section gives more
detailed information about how you
can maximize your safety.
Remember, however, that no safety
system can prevent all injuries or
deaths that can occur in a severe
crash, even when seat belts are
properly worn and the airbags deploy.

Protecting Adults and Teens
Introduction
The following pages provide
instructions on how to properly
protect the driver, adult passengers,
and teenage children who are large
enough and mature enough to drive
or ride in the front.
See pages 34 − 60 for important
guidelines on how to properly
protect infants, small children, and
larger children who ride in your
vehicle.
1.Close the Doors
After everyone has entered the
vehicle, be sure the doors and the
tailgate are closed.
Your vehicle has a door and
tailgate open indicator on
the instrument panel to indicate
when any door or the tailgate is not
tightly closed.
See page 86 for how the door and
tailgate open indicator works.
This shows all doors and the tailgate
open.
Your vehicle has a door and tailgate
open indicator on the multiinformation display to indicate when
a specific door or the tailgate is not
tightly closed.

Protecting Adults and Teens
2.Adjust the Front Seats
In addition to adjusting the seat, you
can adjust the steering wheel up and
down, and in and out (see page 129 ).
If you cannot get far enough away
from the steering wheel and still
reach the controls, we recommend
that you investigate whether some
type of adaptive equipment may help.
Adjust the driver’s seat as far to the
rear as possible while allowing you to
maintain full control of the vehicle.
Have a front passenger adjust their
seat as far to the rear as possible.
If you sit too close to the steering
wheel or dashboard, you can be
seriously injured by an inflating front
airbag, or by striking the steering
wheel or dashboard.
14
Driver and Passenger Safety
Sitting too close to a front
airbag can result in serious
injury or death if the front
airbags inflate.
Always sit as far back from
the front airbags as possible.
Once your seat is adjusted correctly,
rock it back and forth to make sure it
is locked into position. See page
144 for how to adjust the front seats.
12/04/18 14:30:36 42TF2C00_020
Protecting Adults and Teens
3.Adjust the Seat-Backs
4.Adjust the Head Restraints
Reclining the seat-back too
far can result in serious injury
or death in a crash.
Adjust the seat-back to an
upright position, and sit well
back in the seat.
Adjust the driver’s seat-back to a
comfortable, upright position,
leaving ample space between your
chest and the airbag cover in the
centre of the steering wheel.
Passengers with adjustable seatbacks should also adjust their seatback to a comfortable, upright
position.
Reclining a seat-back so that the
shoulder part of the belt no longer
rests against the occupant’s chest
reduces the protective capability of
the belt. It also increases the chance
of sliding under the belt in a crash
and being seriously injured. The
farther a seat-back is reclined, the
greater the risk of injury.
See page 144 for how to adjust the
seat-backs.
Adjust the driver’s head restraint so
the centre of the back of your head
rests against the centre of the
restraint.
Have passengers with adjustable
head restraints adjust their restraints
properly as well. Taller persons
should adjust their restraint as high
as possible.
CONTINUED
Driver and Passenger Safety
15
12/04/18 14:30:42 42TF2C00_021
Protecting Adults and Teens
When a passenger is seated in the
rear seating position, make sure the
rear head restraint is adjusted to its
highest position.
Properly adjusted head restraints
will help protect occupants from
whiplash and other crash injuries.
See page 146 for how to adjust the
head restraints.
Improperly positioning head
restraints reduces their
effectiveness and you can be
seriously injured in a crash.
Make sure head restraints are
in place and positioned
properly before driving.
16
Driver and Passenger Safety
5.Fasten and Position the Seat
Belts
Using the Lap/Shoulder belt
Insert the latch plate into the buckle,
then tug on the belt to make sure the
belt is securely latched. Check that
the belt is not twisted, because a
twisted belt can cause serious
injuries in a crash.
12/04/18 14:30:50 42TF2C00_022
Protecting Adults and Teens
If necessary, pull up on the belt again
to remove any slack, then check that
the belt rests across the centre of
your chest and over your shoulder.
If the seat belt touches or crosses
your neck, or if it crosses your arm
instead of your shoulder, you need to
adjust the seat belt anchor height.
This spreads the forces of a crash
over the strongest bones in your
upper body.
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.
Improperly positioning the
seat belts can cause serious
injury or death in a crash.
Make sure all seat belts are
properly positioned before
driving.
RELEASE BUTTONS
The front seats have adjustable seat
belt anchors. To adjust the height of
an anchor, squeeze the two release
buttons, and slide the anchor up or
down as needed (it has four
positions).
CONTINUED
Driver and Passenger Safety
17
12/04/18 14:30:57 42TF2C00_023
Protecting Adults and Teens
Never place the shoulder portion of a
lap/shoulder belt under your arm or
behind your back. This could cause
Using the Lap Belt
very serious injuries in a crash.
Insert the latch plate into the buckle
marked CENTER.
If the belt is too short, hold the latch
plate at a right angle and pull on the
plate to extend the belt. Then insert
the latch plate into the buckle, and
tug on the belt to make sure the belt
is securely latched.
18
Driver and Passenger Safety
Position the belt as low as possible
across your hips. This lets your
strong pelvic bones take the force of
a crash and reduces the chance of
internal injuries.
Pull on the loose end of the belt for a
snug but comfortable fit.
12/04/18 14:31:04 42TF2C00_024
Protecting Adults and Teens
If a seat belt does not seem to work
as it should, it may not protect the
occupant in a crash.
No one should sit in a seat with an
inoperative seat belt. Using a seat
belt that is not working properly can
result in serious injury or death.
Have your dealer check the belt as
soon as possible.
See page 22 for additional
information about your seat belts
and how to take care of them.
6.Maintain a Proper Sitting
Position
After all occupants have adjusted
their seats and head restraints, and
put on their seat belts, it is very
important that they continue to sit
upright, well back in their seats, with
their feet on the floor, until the
vehicle is safely parked and the
engine is off.
Sitting improperly or out of
position can result in serious
injury or death in a crash.
Always sit upright, well back
in the seat, with your feet on
the floor.
Sitting improperly can increase the
chance of injury during a crash. For
example, if an occupant slouches,
lies down, turns sideways, sits
forward, leans forward or sideways,
or puts one or both feet up, the
chance of injury during a crash is
greatly increased.
In addition, an occupant who is out of
position in the front seat can be
seriously or fatally injured in a crash
by striking interior parts of the
vehicle or being struck by an
inflating front airbag.

Protecting Adults and Teens
Advice for Pregnant Women
When driving, remember to sit
upright and adjust the seat as far
back as possible while allowing full
control of the vehicle. When riding
as a front passenger, adjust the seat
as far back as possible.
This will reduce the risk of injuries
to both you and your unborn child
that can be caused by a crash or an
inflating front airbag.
If you are pregnant, the best way to
protect yourself and your unborn
child when driving or riding in a
vehicle is to always wear a seat belt,
and keep the lap part of the belt as
low as possible across the hips.
We recommend that pregnant
women use a lap/shoulder belt
whenever possible.
20
Driver and Passenger Safety
Each time you have a checkup, ask
your doctor if it’s okay for you to
drive.
Additional Safety Precautions
Never let passengers ride in the
luggage area or on top of a foldeddown back seat. If they do, they
could be very seriously injured in a
crash.
Two people should never use the
same seat belt. If they do, they
could be very seriously injured in a
crash.
Do not put any accessories on seat
belts. Devices intended to improve
occupant comfort or reposition the
shoulder part of a seat belt can
reduce the protective capability of
the seat belt and increase the
chance of serious injury in a crash.
12/04/18 14:31:19 42TF2C00_026
Protecting Adults and Teens
Do not place hard or sharp objects
between yourself and a front
airbag. Carrying hard or sharp

the tensioners immediately tighten
the belts to help hold the driver and
a front passenger in position.
12/04/18 14:31:57 42TF2C00_030
Additional Information About Your Seat Belts
The tensioners can also be activated
during a collision in which the front
airbags do not deploy. In this case, the
airbags would not be needed, but the
extra tension in the seat belt could
be helpful.
If a side curtain airbag deploys
during a side impact, the tensioner
on that side of the vehicle will also
deploy.
When the tensioners are activated,
the seat belts will remain tight until
they are unbuckled.
The SRS indicator will
come on if there is a
problem with your automatic seat
belt tensioners (see page 31 ).
Seat Belt Maintenance
For safety, you should check the
condition of your seat belts regularly.
Pull each belt out fully, and look for
frays, cuts, burns, and wear. Check
that the latches work smoothly and
the lap/shoulder belts retract easily.
If a belt does not retract easily,
cleaning the belt may correct the
problem (see page 299 ). Any belt
that is not in good condition or
working properly will not provide
good protection and should be
replaced as soon as possible.
If a seat belt is worn during a crash,
you should have your dealer inspect
the belt, and replace it if necessary.
A belt that has been worn during a
crash may not provide the same level
of protection in a subsequent crash.
The dealer should also inspect the
anchors for damage and replace
them if needed. If the automatic seat
belt tensioners activate during a
crash, they must be replaced.
WARNING: It is essential to replace
the entire assembly after it has been
worn in a severe impact even if damage
to the assembly is not obvious.
WARNING: No modifications or
additions should be made by the user
which will either prevent the seat belt
adjusting devices from operating to
remove slack, or prevent the seat belt
assembly from being adjusted to remove
slack.
WARNING: Care should be taken to
avoid contamination of the webbing with
polishes, oils and chemicals, and
particularly battery acid. Cleaning may
safely be carried out using mild soap and
water. The belt should be replaced if
webbing becomes frayed, contaminated
or damaged.

How Your Front Airbags Work
Although both airbags normally
inflate within a split second of each
other, it is possible for only one
airbag to deploy.
Emergency backup power in case
your vehicle’s electrical system is
disconnected in a crash.
If you ever have a moderate to
severe frontal collision, sensors will
detect the vehicle’s rapid
deceleration.
If the rate of deceleration is high
enough, the control unit will inflate
the driver’s and front passenger’s
front airbags, and activate the
automatic seat belt tensioners.
28
Driver and Passenger Safety
During a frontal crash, your seat belt
restrains your lower body and torso,
while the tensioner tightens and
locks the seat belt to help keep you
in place, and the front airbag helps
protect your head and chest.
This can happen if the severity of a
collision is at the margin, or
threshold, that determines whether
or not the airbags will deploy. In
such cases, the seat belt will provide
sufficient protection, and the
supplemental protection offered by
the airbag would be minimal.
12/04/18 14:32:28 42TF2C00_034
Additional Information About Your Airbags
The total time for inflation and
deflation is less than a second, so
fast that most occupants are not
aware that the airbags deployed until
they see them lying in their laps.
After inflating, the front airbags
immediately deflate, so they won’t
interfere with the driver’s visibility,
or the ability to steer or operate
other controls.
After a crash, you may see what
looks like smoke. This is actually
powder from the airbag’s surface.
Although the powder is not harmful,
people with respiratory problems
may experience some temporary
discomfort. If this occurs, get out of
the vehicle as soon as it is safe to do
so.
How Your Side Airbags Work
If you ever have a moderate to
severe side impact, sensors will
detect rapid acceleration and signal
the control unit to instantly inflate
either the driver’s or the passenger’s
side airbag.
Driver and Passenger Safety
29
12/04/18 14:32:37 42TF2C00_035
Additional Information About Your Airbags
Only one airbag will deploy during a
side impact. If the impact is on the
passenger’s side, the passenger’s
side airbag may not deploy if there is
no passenger.
To get the best protection from the
side airbags, front seat occupants
should wear their seat belts and sit
upright and well back in their seats.
Side Airbag Cutoff System
Your vehicle has a side airbag cutoff
system designed primarily to protect
a child riding in the front passenger’s
seat.
Although Honda does not encourage
children to ride in front, if position
sensors detect a child has leaned into
the side airbag’s deployment path,
the airbag will shut off.
The side airbag may also shut off if a
short adult leans sideways, or a
larger adult slouches and leans
sideways into the airbag’s
deployment path.
Objects placed on the front
passenger seat can also cause the
side airbag to be shut off.
30
Driver and Passenger Safety
If the side airbag off indicator comes
on (see page 32 ), have the
passenger sit upright. Once the
passenger is out of the airbag’s
deployment path, the system will
turn the airbag back on, and the
indicator will go out.
There will be some delay between
the moment the passenger moves
into or out of the airbag deployment
path and when the indicator comes
on or goes off.
A front seat passenger should not
use a cushion or another object as a
backrest. It may prevent the cutoff
system from working properly.

Additional Information About Your Airbags
How Your Side Curtain Airbags
Work
SIDE CURTAIN AIRBAG
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.
One or both side curtain airbags may
inflate in a moderate to severe
frontal collision which causes the
front airbags to deploy.
To get the best protection from the
side curtain airbags, occupants
should wear their seat belts and sit
upright and well back in their seats.
How the SRS Indicator
Works
The SRS indicator alerts you to a
potential problem with your airbags,
sensors, seat belt tensioners, or
passenger front airbag off system.
When you turn the ignition switch to
the ON (II) position, this indicator
comes on for several seconds then
goes off. This tells you the system is
working properly.
In a moderate to severe side impact,
sensors will detect rapid acceleration
and signal the control unit to
instantly inflate the side curtain
airbag and activate the seat belt
tensioner on the driver’s or the
passenger’s side of the vehicle.

work properly.
Have your vehicle checked by
a dealer as soon as possible if
the SRS indicator alerts you
to a possible problem.
How the Side Airbag Off
Indicator Works
This indicator alerts you that the
passenger’s side airbag has been
automatically shut off. It does not
mean there is a problem with your
side airbags.
When you turn the ignition switch to
the ON (II) position, the indicator
should come on for several seconds
and then go off (see page 72 ). If it
doesn’t come on, stays on, or comes
on while driving without a passenger
in the front seat, have the system
checked.

Additional Information About Your Airbags
Airbag Service
Your airbag systems and automatic
seat belt tensioners are virtually
maintenance free, and there are no
parts you can safely service.
However, you must have your
vehicle serviced if:
An airbag ever inflates. Any airbag
that has deployed must be
replaced along with the control
unit and other related parts. Any
seat belt tensioner that activates
must also be replaced.
We recommend against the use of
salvaged airbag system
components, including the airbag,
tensioners, sensors, and control
unit.
The SRS indicator alerts you to a
problem. Take your vehicle to an
authorized dealer as soon as
possible. If you ignore this
indication, your airbags may not
operate properly.
Handling is allowed by trained
personnel only. It is prohibited to
remove the airbag unit/belttensioner from the vehicle. In case of
malfunction, shutdown or after
airbag inflation/belt-tensioner
operation you have to ask a qualified
shop for repair or removal.
Additional Safety Precautions
Do not attempt to deactivate your
airbags. Together, airbags and
seat belts provide the best
protection.
Do not tamper with airbag and
automatic seat belt tensioner
components or wiring for any
reason. Tampering could cause
the airbags and automatic seat belt
tensioners to deploy, possibly
causing very serious injury.
Do not expose the front seat-backs
to liquid. If water or another liquid
soaks into the seat-back, it can
prevent the side airbag system
from working properly.
Do not try to remove or replace
any airbag by yourself. This must
be done by your dealer or a
knowledgeable body shop.

Protecting Children − General Guidelines
If you have children, or ever need to
drive with a child in your vehicle, be
sure to read this section. It begins
with important general guidelines,
then presents special information for
infants, small children, and larger
children.
Children depend on adults to protect
them. However, despite their best
intentions, many adults do not know
how to properly protect child
passengers.
All Children Must Be Restrained
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 the death of children age 12 and
under.
To reduce the number of child
deaths and injuries, infants and
children should be properly
restrained when they ride in a
vehicle.
Infants and small children must be
restrained in an approved child
restraint system that is properly
secured to the vehicle (see pages
40 − 56 ).

Driver and Passenger Safety
12/04/18 14:33:18 42TF2C00_040
Protecting Children − General Guidelines
Children who are
unrestrained or improperly
restrained can be seriously
injured or killed in a crash.
Any child too small for a seat
belt should be properly
restrained in an approved
child restraint system. A
larger child should be
properly restrained with a
seat belt and use a booster
seat if necessary.
We recommend that child restraint
systems meet the specifications of
the ECE 44 regulation.
In many countries, the law requires
children younger than 12 years of
age and less than 150 cm in height to
be secured in an officially approved
and suitable child restraint system.
In those countries, officially
approved and suitable child restraint
systems must therefore be used in
order to transport a child on any
passenger seat whatsoever. Please
check your local legal requirements.
All Children Should Sit in a Back
Seat
According to crash statistics,
children of all ages and sizes are
safer when they are restrained in a
back seat. It is recommended that all
children age 12 and under be
properly restrained in a back seat.
Children who ride in back are less
likely to be injured by striking
interior vehicle parts during a
collision or hard braking. Also,
children cannot be injured by an
inflating airbag when they ride in the
back.
Larger children must be restrained
with a lap/shoulder belt and ride on
a booster seat until the seat belt fits
them properly (see pages 57 − 60 ).

The Passenger’s Front Airbag
Poses Serious Risks
Front airbags have been designed to
help protect adults in a moderate to
severe frontal collision. To do this,
the passenger’s front airbag is quite
large, and it can inflate with enough
force to cause very serious injuries.
Infants
Never put a rearward facing child
restraint system in the front seat of a
vehicle equipped with a passenger’s
front airbag. If the airbag inflates, it
can hit the back of the child restraint
system with enough force to kill or
very seriously injure an infant.
36
Driver and Passenger Safety
As required by E.C.E Regulation No. 94;
Do not use a rearward facing
child restraint on a seat
protected by an airbag in
front of it.
If the passenger’s front airbag
inflates, it can hit the rearward
facing child restraint system with
great force. The rearward facing
child restraint system can be
dislodged or struck with enough
force to cause very serious injury to
the infant.
12/04/18 14:33:33 42TF2C00_042
Protecting Children − General Guidelines
Small Children
Placing a front facing child restraint
system in the front seat of a vehicle
equipped with a passenger’s front
airbag can be hazardous. If the
vehicle seat is too far forward, or the
child’s head is thrown forward
during a collision, an inflating front
airbag can strike the child with
enough force to kill or very seriously
injure a small child.
Larger Children
Children who have outgrown child
restraint systems are also at risk of
being injured or killed by an inflating
passenger’s front airbag. Whenever
In all cases observe the legal

Protecting Children − General Guidelines
The Side Airbag Poses Serious
Risks
To help prevent injury by an inflating
side airbag, your vehicle has an
automatic cutoff system for the
passenger’s side airbag. Even if with
this system, Honda does not
encourage children to ride in the
front. To get the best protection
from the side airbag, children should
be properly restrained with their seat
belts, and sit upright and well back in
their seats. See page 29 for further
information on the passenger’s side
airbag automatic cutoff system.
To remind you of the side airbags
hazards, your vehicle also has the
safety label on each front doorjamb.
If You Must Drive with Several
Children
Your vehicle has a back seat where
children can be properly restrained.
If you ever have to carry a group of
children, and a child must ride in
front:
Place the largest child in the front
seat, provided the child is large
enough to wear the lap/shoulder
belt properly (see page 57 ).
Move the vehicle seat as far to the
rear as possible (see page 14 ).
Have the child sit upright and well
back in the seat (see page 19 ).
Make sure the seat belt is properly
positioned and secured (see page

Protecting Children − General Guidelines
If a Child Requires Close
Attention
Many parents say they prefer to put
an infant or a small child in the front
passenger seat so they can watch the
child, or because the child requires
attention.
Placing a child in the front seat
exposes the child to hazards in a
frontal collision or a side impact, and
paying close attention to a child
distracts the driver from the
important tasks of driving, placing
both of you at risk.
If a child requires close physical
attention or frequent visual contact,
we strongly recommend that another
adult ride with the child in the back
seat. The back seat is far safer for a
child than the front.
Additional Safety Precautions
Never hold an infant or child on
your lap. If you are not wearing a
seat belt in a crash, you could be
thrown forward and crush the
child against the dashboard or a
seat-back. If you are wearing a
seat belt, the child can be torn
from your arms and be seriously
hurt or killed.
Never put a seat belt over yourself
and a child. During a crash, the
belt could press deep into the child
and cause serious or fatal injuries.
Never let two children use the
same seat belt. If they do, they
could be very seriously injured in a
crash.
Do not leave children alone in a
vehicle. Leaving children without
adult supervision is illegal in some
countries, and can be very
hazardous.
For example, infants and small
children left in a vehicle on a hot
day can die from heatstroke. A
child left alone with the key in the
ignition switch can accidentally set
the vehicle in motion, possibly
injuring themselves or others.
Lock all doors and the tailgate
when your vehicle is not in use.
Children who play in vehicles can
accidentally get trapped inside.
Teach your children not to play in
or around vehicles.
Use the childproof door locks to
prevent children from opening the
rear doors. This can prevent
children from accidentally falling

Child Restraint System Type
An infant must be properly
restrained in a rear-facing, reclining
child restraint system until the child
reaches the restraint system maker’s
weight or height limit for the
restraint system, and the child is at
least one year old.
12/04/18 14:34:07 42TF2C00_046
Protecting Infants and Small Children
Only a rearward facing child
restraint system provides proper
support for a baby’s head, neck and
back.
Two types of restraints may be used:
a restraint system designed
exclusively for infants, or a
convertible restraint system used in
the rearward facing, reclining mode.
Do not put a rearward facing child
restraint system in a forward-facing
position. If placed facing forward, an
infant could be very seriously injured
during a frontal collision.
Rearward Facing Child Restraint
System Placement
A rearward facing child restraint
system can be placed in any seating
position in the back seat, but not in
the front. Never put a rearward
facing child restraint system in the
front seat.
If the passenger’s front airbag
inflates, it can hit the back of the
restraint with enough force to kill or
seriously injure an infant.
When properly installed, a rearward
facing child restraint system may
prevent the driver or a front
passenger from moving their seat as
far back as recommended, or from
locking their seat-back in the desired
position.
In either situation, we strongly
recommend that you install the child
restraint system directly behind the
front passenger seat, move the seat
as far forward as needed, and leave it
unoccupied. Or you may wish to get
a smaller rearward facing child
restraint system.

We also recommend that a small
child uses the child restraint system
as long as possible, until the child
reaches the weight or height limit
for the restraint system.
Child Restraint System Placement
We strongly recommend placing a
front facing child restraint system in
a back seat, not the front.
Placing a front facing child restraint
system in the front seat of a vehicle
equipped with a passenger’s airbag
can be hazardous. If the vehicle seat
is too far forward, or the child’s head
is thrown forward during a collision,
an inflating airbag can strike the
child with enough force to cause
very serious or fatal injuries.
Placing a front facing child
restraint system in the front
seat can result in serious
injury or death if the front
airbag inflates.
If you must place a front
facing child restraint system
in front, move the vehicle
seat as far back as possible,
and properly restrain the
child.
If it is necessary to put a front facing
child restraint system in the front,
move the vehicle seat as far to the
rear as possible, and be sure the
child restraint system is firmly
secured to the vehicle and the child
is properly strapped in the restraint
system.

Selecting a Child Restraint System
Most child restraint systems 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
restraint systems can only be
installed using the seat belt.
Whichever type you choose, follow
the child restraint system
manufacturer’s use and care
instructions as well as the
instructions in this manual. Proper
installation is key to maximizing your
child’s safety.
44
Driver and Passenger Safety
In seating positions and vehicles not
equipped with LATCH, a LATCHcompatible child restraint system
can be installed using the seat belt
and a top tether for added security.
This is because all child restraint
systems 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 restraint
system manufacturer may advise
that a seat belt be used to attach a
LATCH-compatible seat once a child
reaches a specified weight. Please
read the child restraint system
owner’s manual for proper
installation instructions.
Important considerations when
selecting a child restraint system
Make sure the child restraint system
meets the following two
requirements:
The child restraint system is the
correct type and size for the child.
The child restraint system is the
correct type for the seating
position.
12/04/18 14:34:37 42TF2C00_050
Installing a Child Restraint System
After selecting a proper child
restraint system and a good place to
install the restraint system, there are
three main steps in installing the
restraint system:
1. Properly secure the child restraint
system to the vehicle. All child
restraint systems must be secured
to the vehicle with the lap belt or
the lap part of a lap/shoulder belt
or with the lower anchorages
system. A child whose restraint
system is not properly secured to
the vehicle can be endangered in a
crash.
If you use a lap/shoulder belt, be
sure you install a locking clip on the
seat belt (see page 54 ).
2. Make sure the child restraint
system is firmly secured. After
installing a child restraint system,
push and pull the restraint system
forward and from side-to-side to
verify that it is secure.
A child restraint system secured
with a seat belt should be installed as
firmly as possible. However, it does
not need to be ‘‘rock solid.’’ Some
side-to-side movement can be
expected and should not reduce the
child restraint system’s effectiveness.
If the child restraint system is not
secure, try installing it in a different
seating position, or use a different
style of child restraint system that
can be firmly secured.
3. Secure the child in the child
restraint system. Make sure the
child is properly strapped in the
child restraint system according to
the child restraint system maker’s
instructions. A child who is not
properly secured in a child
restraint system can be seriously
injured in a crash.
The following pages provide
guidelines on how to properly install
a child restraint system. A front
facing child restraint system is used
in all examples, but the instructions
are the same for a rearward facing
child restraint system.

Installing a Child Restraint System
The use of any child restraint
system which is not suitable
for your vehicles would not
properly secure the infant or
child who could therefore be
killed or seriously injured.
Your vehicle is equipped with lower
anchorages at the outer seating
positions on the rear seat. These
anchorages are only to be used with
a child restraint system designed to
be attached to the lower anchorages.
Refer to page 46 for how to install a
child restraint system to the lower
anchorages.
Installing a Child Restraint
System with the Lower
Anchorages
Your vehicle is equipped with lower
anchorages at the outer rear seats.
These anchorages are located
between the seat-back and seat
bottom, and are to be used only with
a child restraint system designed for
use with the lower anchorages.
The location of each lower
anchorage is indicated by a small
button above the anchorage point.
You can find a lower anchorage in
the slit on the seat-back.

Using a Seat Belt Locking Clip
Always use a seat belt locking clip
when you secure a child restraint
system to your vehicle with a lap/
shoulder belt. This helps prevent the
restraint system from shifting
position or overturning.
A locking clip is usually included
with the child restraint system. If
you need a clip, contact the seat’s
manufacturer or a store that sells
child restraints.
If it is necessary to put a front facing
child restraint system in the front,
move the vehicle seat as far to the
rear as possible, be sure the child
restraint system is firmly secured to
the vehicle, and the child is properly
strapped in the restraint system (see

Protecting Larger Children
When a child reaches the
recommended weight or height limit
for a front facing child restraint
system, the child should sit in the
back seat on a booster and wear a
lap/shoulder belt. The lap/shoulder
belt provides better protection than
the lap belt.
The following pages give
instructions on how to check proper
seat belt fit, what kind of booster
seat to use if one is needed, and
important precautions for a child
who must sit in front.
Allowing a child age 12 or
under to sit in front can result
in injury or death if the
passenger’s front airbag
inflates.
Your vehicle has an automatic cutoff
system for the passenger’s side
airbag if a child leans sideways and
the child’s head is in the deployment
path of the side airbag. Even if with
this system, Honda does not
encourage children to ride in the
front.
If a child must ride in front,
move the vehicle seat as far
back as possible, use a
booster seat if needed, have
the child sit up properly and
wear the seat belt properly.
Make sure the seat-backs are
latched securely before
driving.

Using a Booster Seat
4. Is the lap part of the belt as low as
possible, touching the child’s
thighs?
5. Will the child be able to stay
seated like this for the whole trip?
To determine if a lap/shoulder belt
properly fits a child, have the child
put on the seat belt, then ask
yourself:
1. Does the child sit all the way back
against the seat?
2. Do the child’s knees bend
comfortably over the edge of the
seat?
58
Driver and Passenger Safety
If you answer yes to all these
questions, the child is ready to wear
the lap/shoulder belt correctly. If
you answer no to any question, the
child needs to ride on a booster seat.
A child who has outgrown a front
facing child restraint system should
ride in a back seat and use a booster
seat until the lap/shoulder belt fits
them properly without the booster.
12/04/18 14:36:23 42TF2C00_064
Protecting Larger Children
Booster seats can be high-back or
low-back. Whichever style you select,
make sure the booster seat meets
approved safety standards (see page
44 ) and that you follow the booster
seat maker’s instructions.
If a child who uses a booster seat
must ride in front, move the vehicle
seat as far back as possible and be
sure the child is wearing the seat
belt properly.
A child may continue using a booster
seat until the tops of their ears are
even with the top of the vehicle’s or
booster’s seat-back. A child of this
height should be tall enough to use
the lap/shoulder belt without a
booster seat.
When Can a Larger Child Sit in
Front
It is recommended that all children
age 12 and under be properly
restrained in the back seat.
GUIDE
A back-rest may be available for a
specific booster seat. Install the
back-rest to the booster seat and
adjust it to the vehicle seat according
to the booster seat maker’s
instructions. Make sure the seat belt
is properly routed through the guide
at the shoulder of the back-rest and
the belt does not touch and cross the
child’s neck (see page 16 ).
The back seat is the safest place for
a child of any age or size.
If the passenger’s front airbag
inflates in a moderate to severe
frontal collision, the airbag can cause
serious injuries to a child who is
unrestrained, improperly restrained,
sitting too close to the airbag, or out
of position.
A side airbag also poses risks. If any
part of a larger child’s body is in the
path of a deploying side airbag, the
child could receive possibly serious
injuries.

Protecting Larger Children
Of course, children vary widely. And
while age may be one indicator of
when a child can safely ride in front,
there are other important factors you
should consider.
Physical Size
Physically, a child must be large
enough for the lap/shoulder belt to
properly fit (see pages 16 and 57 ). If
the seat belt does not fit properly,
with or without the child sitting on a
booster seat, the child should not sit
in front.
Maturity
To safely ride in front, a child must
be able to follow the rules, including
sitting properly, and wearing the seat
belt properly throughout a ride.
If you decide that a child can safely
ride up front, be sure to:

cause very serious injuries during
a crash. It also increases the
chance that the child will slide
under the belt in a crash and be
injured.
Have the child sit up straight, back
against the seat, and feet on or
near the floor.
Check that the child’s seat belt is
properly and securely positioned.
Remind the child not to lean
toward the door.
Supervise the child. Even a mature
child sometimes needs to be
reminded to fasten the seat belt or
sit properly.

Additional Safety Precautions
Do not let a child put the shoulder
part of a seat belt behind the back
or under the arm. This could
Two children should never use the
same seat belt. If they do, they
could be very seriously injured in a
crash.
Do not put any accessories on a
seat belt. Devices intended to
improve a child’s comfort or
reposition the shoulder part of a
seat belt can make the belt less
effective and increase the chance
of serious injury in a crash.

Carbon Monoxide Hazard
Your vehicle’s exhaust contains
carbon monoxide gas. Carbon
monoxide should not enter the
vehicle in normal driving if you
maintain your vehicle properly and
follow the information on this page.
Have the exhaust system inspected
for leaks whenever:
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.
The vehicle is raised for an oil

You notice a change in the sound
of the exhaust.
The vehicle was in a crash that
may have damaged the underside.
High levels of carbon monoxide can
collect rapidly in enclosed areas,
such as a garage. Do not run the
engine with the garage door closed.
Even with the door open, run the
engine only long enough to move the
vehicle out of the garage.
With the tailgate open, airflow can
pull exhaust gas into your vehicle’s
interior and create a hazardous
condition. If you must drive with the
tailgate open, open all the windows,

You can also check the status of the
IMA system function on the multiinformation display (see page 85 ).
If the IMA battery is too hot or too
cold, the IMA system limits the IMA
battery’s output power to protect the
battery. This disables the IMA assist
and Auto Idle Stop, even though the
battery level indicator on the multiinformation display may show that
the battery is well-charged (see page

in L (Low) mode (see page 228 ).
If the battery is mostly discharged,
the auto idle stop function is disabled
(see page 229 ).
The battery level gauge does not
read the battery level directly. It
calculates the level by continuously
measuring the current flow, voltage,
and temperature.
Since the level is not read directly,
small sensing errors can, over time,
cause the gauge to read higher than
the actual battery level. The system
will then perform a correction, and
the battery level gauge reading will
drop suddenly. When this happens,
IMA assist and Auto Idle Stop are
disabled until the IMA battery is
sufficiently recharged by normal
driving.
This correction of the battery level
indicator is normal and does not
indicate a problem. If the IMA
battery develops a problem or
deteriorates, the IMA system
indicator will come on. If this

need this key number if you ever
have to get a lost key replaced. Use
only Honda-approved key blanks.
Remote Transmitter
Your two ignition keys are also fitted
with remote transmitters; see page
160 for an explanation of the
operation.
Two ignition keys come with your
vehicle. You should keep one of
them in a safe place, away from the
vehicle, as a spare.
They fit all the locks on your vehicle.
130
Instruments and Controls
These keys contain electronic
circuits that are activated by the
immobilizer system. They will not
work to start the engine if the
circuits are damaged.
Protect the keys from direct
sunlight, high temperature, and
high humidity.
Do not drop the keys or set heavy
objects on them.
Keep the keys away from liquids.
If they get wet, dry them
immediately with a soft cloth.

Immobilizer System
The immobilizer system protects
your vehicle from theft. If an
improperly coded key (or other
device) is used, the engine’s fuel
system is disabled.
When you turn the ignition switch to
the ON (II) position, the immobilizer
system indicator should come on
briefly, then go off. If the indicator
starts to blink, it means the system
does not recognize the coding of the
key. Turn the ignition switch to the
LOCK (0) position, remove the key,
reinsert it, and turn the ignition
switch to the ON (II) position again.
If the system repeatedly does not
recognize the coding of your key,
contact your dealer.
Do not attempt to alter this system
or add other devices to it. Electrical
problems could result that may make
your vehicle inoperable.
If you have lost your key and cannot
start your engine, contact your
dealer.
The system may not recognize your
key’s coding if another immobilizer
key or other metal object (i.e. key
chain) is near the ignition switch
when you insert the key.

Features
Protecting Discs
When a disc is not being played,
store it in its case to protect it from
dust and other contamination. To
prevent warpage, keep discs out of
direct sunlight and extreme heat.
To clean a disc, use a clean soft cloth.
Wipe across the disc from the centre
to the outside edge.
A new disc may be rough on the
inner and outer edges. The small
plastic pieces causing this roughness
can flake off and fall on the
recording surface of the disc,
causing skipping or other problems.
Remove these pieces by rubbing the
inner and outer edges with the side
of a pencil or pen.
Never try to insert foreign objects in
the disc player.
Handle a disc by its edges; never
touch either surface. Do not place
stabilizer rings or labels on the disc.
These, along with contamination
from fingerprints, liquids, and felt-tip
pens, can cause the disc to not play
properly, or possibly jam in the drive.

Auxiliary Input Jack, Radio Theft Protection
Auxiliary Input Jack
The auxiliary input jack is on the
audio unit. The system will accept
auxiliary input from standard audio
accessories.
When you plug in a mini-jack cable
between a compatible audio unit and
the jack, you will see AUX in the
display and the system automatically
switches to AUX mode.
Radio Theft Protection
Your vehicle’s audio system will
disable itself if it is disconnected
from electrical power for any reason.
To make it work again, you must
enter a specific five-digit code using
the preset buttons. Because there
are hundreds of number
combinations possible from the fivedigits, making the system work
without knowing the exact code is
nearly impossible.
You should have received a card that
lists your audio system’s code and
serial numbers. It is best to store this
card in a safe place at home. In
addition, you should write the audio
system’s serial number in this owner’s
manual.
If you lose the card, you must obtain
the code number from a dealer. To
do this, you will need the system’s
serial number.
If your vehicle’s battery is
disconnected or goes dead, the audio
system will disable itself. If this
happens, you will see ‘‘ENTER
CODE’’ in the frequency display the
next time you turn on the system.
Use the preset buttons to enter the
code. The code is on the radio code
card included in your owner’s
manual kit. When it is entered
correctly, the radio will start playing.
If you make a mistake entering the
code, do not start over; complete the
five-digit sequence, then enter the
correct code. You have ten tries to
enter the correct code. If you are
unsuccessful in ten attempts, you
must then leave the system on for
one hour before trying again.
The system will retain your AM and
FM presets even if power is
disconnected.

Security System
The security system helps to protect
your vehicle and valuables from theft.
The horn sounds and the turn signal
lights flash if someone attempts to
break into your vehicle or remove
the radio. This alarm continues for
30 seconds, then the system resets.
If the cause of the alarm continues,
alarming will repeat several times at
about 5-second intervals.
To turn off an activated system
before 30 seconds have elapsed,
unlock the driver’s door with the
remote transmitter.
The security system sets
automatically 15 seconds after you
lock the doors, bonnet, and tailgate.
For the system to activate, you must

the security system has set. When
you unlock them, these lights flash
once.
The security system also sets after
you lock the doors with the lock tab
on the driver’s door while pulling the
outside door handle.
Once the security system is set,
opening any door or tailgate (without
using the remote transmitter), or the
bonnet, will cause it to alarm. It also
alarms if the audio unit is removed
from the dashboard or the wiring is
cut.
The alarm also activates if a
passenger inside the locked vehicle
turns the ignition switch on.
The security system will not set if
the bonnet, tailgate, or any door is
not fully closed. If the system will not
set, check the door and tailgate open
indicators on the multi-information
display (see page 13 ), to see if the
doors and tailgate are fully closed.
Since there is no bonnet indicator,
manually check the bonnet.
Do not attempt to alter this system
or add other devices to it.
Unlocking the doors with the key
will cause the security system to
alarm. Make sure you always unlock
the doors with the remote
transmitter.

Break-in Period, Fuel Recommendation
Break-in Period
Help assure your vehicle’s future
reliability and performance by paying
extra attention to how you drive
during the first 1,000 km. During
this period:
Avoid full-throttle starts and rapid
acceleration.
Avoid hard braking for the first
300 km.
Do not change the oil until the
scheduled maintenance time.
You should also follow these
recommendations with an
overhauled or exchanged engine, or
when the brakes are replaced.
196
Before Driving
Fuel Recommendation
Your vehicle is designed to operate
on unleaded petrol with 91 Research
Octane Number (RON) or higher.
Petrol of the recommended
Research Octane Number (RON)
may not be available in some areas.
In this case, petrol of a lower octane
may be used temporarily if it does
not cause engine ‘‘knocking.’’ This
will result in decreased engine
performance.
Using petrol containing lead will
damage your vehicle’s emissions
controls and engine. This contributes
to air pollution.

3. Holding the grip, pull the support
rod out of its clip. Insert the end
into the hole in the bonnet
designated by an arrow.
To close the bonnet, lift it up slightly
to remove the support rod from the
hole. Put the support rod back into
its holding clip. Lower the bonnet to
about 30 cm above the fender, then
let it drop. Make sure it is securely
latched.
Oil Check
All engines consume oil as part of
their normal operation, therefore,
the engine oil level must be checked
regularly, for example when
refuelling. Always check the oil
before a long journey.
While the auto idle stop function is
activated, the engine is stopped but
the ignition switch is in the ON (II)
position. Do not open the bonnet as
the engine components are hot.
The amount of oil consumed
depends on how the vehicle is driven
and the climatic and road conditions
encountered. The rate of oil
consumption can be up to 1 litre per
1,000 km. Consumption is likely to be
higher when the engine is new.
Make sure the engine is warmed up
and the vehicle is parked on level
ground. Turn off the engine and wait
approximately 3 minutes before
checking the oil level.

characteristics that are somewhat
different from what you are used
to.
For example, an underinflated tyre
Try to maintain a constant speed.
Every time you slow down and

causes more ‘‘rolling resistance,’’
which uses more fuel.
The build-up of snow or mud on
your vehicle’s underside adds
weight and rolling resistance.
Frequent cleaning helps your fuel
economy and reduces the chance
of corrosion.
Drive moderately. Rapid
acceleration, abrupt cornering,
and hard braking use more fuel.
Wind resistance causes vehicles to
use more fuel at higher speeds.
Driving at moderate speeds on the
motorway also reduces wind
resistance and conserves fuel.
The instant fuel economy gauge
and the ambient meter allow you
to monitor your fuel economy and
adjust your driving habits to save
fuel.
Combine several short trips into
one.
Use the ECON mode as much as
possible.
The air conditioning puts an extra
load on the engine which makes it
use more fuel. Use the fresh-air
ventilation when possible.
Using the ECON ON mode with
the A/C off is the most effective
way to get the best fuel economy.
Try to drive always in the D
position.

Fuel Economy, Accessories and Modifications
You may notice that using the A/C
causes a greater drop in fuel
economy than you are used to in
other vehicles. Although the amount
of extra fuel used by the A/C load on
the engine is no greater than other
vehicles, it is more noticeable
because of your vehicle’s excellent
fuel economy. Using the A/C in hot
weather may result in fuel economy
that is lower than expected.
Accessories and Modifications
Modifying your vehicle, or installing
non-Honda accessories, may make it
unsafe. Before you make any
modifications or add any accessories,
be sure to read the following
information.
Accessories
Your dealer has genuine Honda
accessories that allow you to
personalize your vehicle. These
accessories have been designed and
approved for your vehicle.
Although non-Honda accessories
may fit on your vehicle, they may not
meet factory specifications, and
could adversely affect your vehicle’s
handling, stability, and reliability.
202
Before Driving
Improper accessories or
modifications can affect your
vehicle’s handling, stability,
and performance, and cause
a crash in which you can be
hurt or killed.
Follow all instructions in this
owner’s manual regarding
accessories and
modifications.
When properly installed, cellular
phones, alarms, two-way radios,
radio antenna, and low-powered
audio systems should not interfere
with your vehicle’s computer
controlled systems, such as your
airbags and anti-lock brakes.
12/04/18 14:54:58 42TF2C00_208
Accessories and Modifications
Before installing any accessory:
Make sure the accessory does not
obscure any lights, or interfere
with proper vehicle operation or
performance.
Be sure electronic accessories do
not overload electrical circuits
(see page 320 ) or interfere with
proper operation of your vehicle.
Do not install accessories on the
side pillars or across the rear
windows. Accessories installed in
these areas may interfere with
proper operation of the side
curtain airbags.
Before installing any electronic
accessory, have the installer
contact your dealer for assistance.
If possible, have your dealer
inspect the final installation.
Modifying Your Vehicle
Removing parts from your vehicle,
or replacing components with
non-Honda components could
seriously affect your vehicle’s
handling, stability, and reliability.
Some examples are:
Lowering your vehicle with a
non-Honda suspension kit that
significantly reduces ground
clearance can allow the
undercarriage to hit speed bumps
or other raised objects, which
could cause the airbags to deploy.
Larger or smaller wheels and tyres
can interfere with the operation of
your vehicle’s anti-lock brakes and
other systems.
Modifying your steering wheel or
any other part of your vehicle’s
safety features can make the
systems ineffective.
Raising your vehicle with a
non-Honda suspension kit can
affect the handling, stability, and
reliability.
Non-Honda wheels, because they
are a universal design, can cause
excessive stress on suspension
components.

Try to secure the items with rope
or cord so they will not shift while
you are driving.
Do not place items on the luggage
area cover, or stack objects higher
than the top of the back seat. They
could block your view and be
thrown about the vehicle during a
crash or sudden stop.
Do not spill any liquids on or
around the IMA battery. Spilled
liquids may damage the IMA
battery. If you accidentally spill
liquids on or around the battery,
ensure that the spill is completely
wiped up at the earliest possible
time.
If you carry large items that
prevent you from closing the

4. Visually check the tyres. If a tyre
looks low, use a gauge to check its
pressure.
1. Make sure all windows, mirrors,
and outside lights are clean and
unobstructed. Remove frost, snow,
or ice.
5. Check that any items you may be
carrying are stored properly or
fastened down securely.
2. Check that the bonnet is fully
closed.
3. Check that the tailgate is fully
closed.
6. Check the seat adjustment (see
page 144 ).
7. Check the adjustment of the
inside and outside mirrors (see
page 157 ).
8. Check the steering wheel
adjustment (see page 129 ).
9. Make sure the doors are securely
closed.
10. Fasten your seat belt. Check that
your passengers have fastened
their seat belts (see page 16 ).
11. When you start the engine, check
the gauges and indicators in the
instrument panel (see page 67 ).
12. Check the symbol(s) on the multiinformation display.

12/04/18 14:55:58 42TF2C00_216
Starting the Engine
1. Apply the parking brake.
2. In cold weather, turn off all
electrical accessories to reduce
the drain on the battery.
3. Make sure the shift lever is in
Park. Press on the brake pedal.
4. Without touching the accelerator
pedal, turn the ignition key to the
START (III) position. Do not hold
the key in the START (III)
position for more than 15 seconds
at a time. If the engine does not
start right away, pause for at least
10 seconds before trying again.
The immobilizer system protects
your vehicle from theft. If an
improperly-coded key (or other
device) is used, the engine’s fuel
system is disabled. For more
information, see page 131 .
Starting in Cold Weather
In cold weather, the conventional
starter is used instead of the IMA
system starter. This is normal.
The engine is harder to start in cold
weather. Also, the thinner air found
at altitudes above 2,400 meters adds
to this problem.
If the outside temperature is below
freezing, or if your vehicle has not
been driven for several days, warm
up the engine for a few minutes
before driving.

Eco Assist System
There are three Eco stages, with five
plants per stage. As you accumulate
a specified number of leaves, you
advance from one stage to the next.
The plant grows leaves from left to
right, or loses them from right to left.
A trophy icon appears once you have
reached the maximum third stage
score.
Real time scores must accumulate over time to result in a stage change. In order to build lifetime
points and advance to the next stage, you need to keep your efficient driving style every time you
make a trip. It can take several months to move from one stage to the next. Individual results will
vary.
Stages/Displays and icons
First Stage
Second Stage
The scoring system for points is
based on:
Braking and accelerating
Vehicle speed
ECON button usage
Idle duration
Maximum Score Icons
Second
Stage
A total of four leaves can be added to each plant icon.
A circular shaped icon, which represents a blossom, can be
added on top of each plant icon with four leaves.
Third Stage

Definition
A total of two leaves can be put on each plant icon.
Third
Stage
An icon appears once you have reached the maximum score for
each stage and are moving up to the next stage. These icons
appear briefly when the ignition switch it turned off.
Once the 3rd stage maximum score is reached, the system
continues to monitor your driving. If you maintain a fuel
efficient driving style, your score remains at the highest stage.
If you drive less efficiently, points will be deducted and you
may drop (stage down) to the previous stage.

As you progress to a higher level, the
system monitors your driving style
more strictly. As a result, you must
further refine your driving style to
continue to move up to the next level.
The following are some of the
conditions that may affect your
score:
Extremely high or low ambient
temperature
Inconsistent acceleration use, such
as pumping the pedal repeatedly
within a short period of time
Frequent use of the climate
control system
Short distance trips
Reset the System
The following procedure clears all
leaves and your lifetime points. This
procedure must be followed exactly.
Turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position. Confirm that the ECON
mode is OFF. If it is OFF, proceed to
step 1. Do not run the engine.
If the ECON mode is on, press and
release the ECON button to turn it
off. You also need to turn the ignition
switch off.
Turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position again. Do not run the
engine.
Complete the following steps within
30 seconds:
1. Press and release the brake pedal
at least two times. The ambient
meter colour changes from blue to
green*.
* : The ambient meter colour
changes only if the multiinformation display’s meter
colour change setting is on. (See
page 108 .)
2. Press and release the ECON
button two times (ECON mode
comes on, then goes off). The
ambient meter colour goes off,
and the accumulated data is
cleared.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the

on driving with the paddle shifters,
see page 224 .
Engine Speed Limiter
The CVT shifts automatically to
maintain proper engine speed in any
shift position.
When the vehicle reaches the
maximum speed in any shift position,
you may feel the engine cut in and
out. This is caused by a limiter (180
km/h) in the engine’s computer
controls. The engine will run
normally when you reduce the speed
to below the maximum.

Driving with the Paddle Shifters
Using the Paddle Shifters in the
D position (D-Paddle Shift Mode)
When you are driving in the D
position, pulling either paddle shifter
switches from the D-normal shift
mode to the D-paddle shift mode.
You can shift the transmission up or
down through seven-stages manually
with the paddle shifters.
Downshifting gives you more power
when climbing, and provides engine
braking when going down a steep hill.
224
Driving
SHIFT INDICATOR
To shift up or down, use the +
(right) or − (left) paddle shifter on
either side of the steering wheel.
When you pull either paddle shifter,
the shift indicator shows you the
selected speed number.
Pull the + (right) paddle shifter to
upshift. Pull − (left) to downshift.
When the transmission returns to
ordinary automatic transmission
(CVT), the displayed shift indicator
disappears.
12/04/18 14:57:54 42TF2C00_230
Driving with the Paddle Shifters
Downshifting with the − (left)
paddle shifter allows you to increase
the engine braking when going down
steep or long hills, and provides
more power when climbing uphills.
You can upshift the transmission
manually to reduce the rpm.
The transmission control system
monitors the accelerator pedal use
and your driving conditions. When
you press the accelerator pedal as in
the normal driving, the system
judges that you are driving at a
constant cruising speed without
using the paddle shifters. Under
these conditions, D-paddle shift
mode is cancelled, and the
transmission automatically returns to
ordinary automatic transmission
(CVT).
To cancel the D-paddle shift mode
manually, pull and hold the + side
paddle shifter until the shift indicator
goes out.
The transmission remains in the
selected speed if you do not
accelerate.

12/04/18 14:58:01 42TF2C00_231
Driving with the Paddle Shifters
Each time you pull either paddle
shifter, the transmission shifts one
speed up or down. If you want to
shift up or down more than two
speeds, pull the paddle shifter twice,
pause, and then pull it again.
The automatic transmission (CVT)
will not allow you to shift if:
You downshift before the engine
speed reaches the highest
threshold of the lower speed.
If you try to do this, the shift
indicator will flash the number of
the lower speed several times,
then return to a higher speed.
You upshift before the engine
speed reaches the lowest
threshold of the higher speed.
You press both paddle shifters at
the same time.
You pull one of the two paddle
shifters with another paddle
shifter being pressed.
226
Driving
The transmission downshifts to first
speed and returns to ordinary
automatic transmission (CVT) when
the vehicle comes to a complete stop
and the vehicle speed is about 10
km/h.
If there is a problem in the
transmission while you are driving
with the paddle shifters, the D
indicator flashes, the D-paddle shift
mode is cancelled, and the
transmission returns to ordinary
automatic transmission (CVT).
12/04/18 14:58:10 42TF2C00_232
Driving with the Paddle Shifters
Using the Paddle Shifters in the S
position (7-Speed Manual Shift
Mode)
With the shift lever in the S position,
you can select the 7-speed manual
shift mode to shift speeds; much like
a manual transmission using the
paddle shifters, but without a clutch
pedal.
To enter the 7-speed manual shift
mode, press the release button on
the front of the shift lever, move the
lever to the S position, then pull
either paddle shifter. To cancel the
7-speed manual shift mode and
return to the ordinary automatic
transmission (CVT), move the shift
lever from the S position. When
moving the shift lever, be careful not
to operate incorrectly. While you are
driving in the 7-speed manual shift
mode, the transmission will not
automatically return to the ordinary
automatic transmission (CVT).
‘‘M’’ INDICATOR
If you keep depressing the
accelerator pedal without pulling the
paddle shifter, the speed will be
automatically shifted up just before
the tachometer’s red zone.
The transmission also shifts
automatically as the vehicle comes to
a complete stop. It downshifts to first
speed when the vehicle speed
reaches 10 km/h or less.
SHIFT INDICATOR
When you move the shift lever from
the ‘‘D’’ to the ‘‘S’’ position and pull
either paddle shifter, the shift
indicator displays ‘‘M’’ along with the
selected speed number.
Downshifting with the − (left)
paddle shifter allows you to increase
the engine braking when going down
steep or long hills, and provides
more power when climbing uphills.
You can upshift the transmission
manually to reduce the rpm.
To upshift, pull the + (right) paddle
shifter. To downshift, pull the −

Auto Idle Stop
To help maximize fuel economy,
your vehicle has an Auto Idle Stop
function. Depending on
environmental conditions and vehicle
operation, the engine will shut off
when you come to a stop.
The engine automatically stops
when:
The vehicle comes to a stop with the
shift lever in the D position and the
brake pedal pressed.
The engine may also stop when
vehicle speed drops below 11 km/h
with the brake pedal pressed.
While the auto idle stop function is
activated, the auto idle stop indicator
in the instrument panel blinks (see
page 231 ).
When the ECON mode is on, the
engine is more likely to stop than
when it is off (see page 128 ).
The engine will not stop
automatically under the following
conditions:
Vehicle speed does not go above
11 km/h after starting the engine.
The transmission fluid
temperature is low.
The vehicle is stopped with the
shift position in R or S.
When the vehicle is stopped on an

Under the following conditions, the
engine restarts even if the brake
pedal is pressed:
The shift position is changed to R.
The accelerator pedal is pressed.
The climate control system is
dehumidifying the air.
The pressure to the brake pedal is
reduced and the vehicle starts

Parking, Braking System
Always use the parking brake when
you park your vehicle. Make sure
the parking brake is set firmly, or
your vehicle may roll if it is parked
on an incline.
Never park over dry leaves, tall
grass, or other flammable
materials. The hot three way
catalytic converter could cause
these materials to catch on fire.
Set the parking brake before you put
the transmission in Park. This keeps
the vehicle from moving and putting
pressure on the parking mechanism
in the transmission.
If the vehicle is facing uphill, turn
the front wheels away from the
curb.
Parking Tips
Make sure the windows are closed.
Turn off the lights.
Place any packages, valuables, etc.,
in the luggage area or take them
with you.
Lock the doors and the tailgate.
Check the indicator on the
instrument panel to verify that the
security system is set.
232
Driving
If the vehicle is facing downhill,
turn the front wheels toward the
curb.
Make sure the parking brake is
fully released before driving away.
Driving with the parking brake
partially set can overheat or
damage the rear brakes.
You will also see the symbol
‘‘
’’ with a ‘‘RELEASE
PARKING BRAKE’’ message on
the multi-information display (see
page 159 ).
Braking System
Your vehicle is equipped with front
disc brakes. The brakes on the rear
wheels are drum. A power assist
helps reduce the effort needed on
the brake pedal. The emergency
brake assist system increases the
stopping force when you depress the
brake pedal hard in an emergency
situation. The anti-lock brake system
(ABS) helps you retain steering
control when braking very hard.
Resting your foot on the pedal keeps
the brakes applied lightly, builds up
heat, reduces their effectiveness and
reduces brake pad life. In addition,
fuel economy can be reduced. It also
keeps your brake lights on all the
time, confusing drivers behind you.
12/04/18 14:59:08 42TF2C00_238
Braking System
Constant application of the brakes
when going down a long hill builds
up heat and reduces their
effectiveness. Use the engine to
assist the brakes by taking your foot
off the accelerator and downshifting
to a lower gear.
Check the brakes after driving
through deep water. Apply the
brakes moderately to see if they feel
normal. If not, apply them gently and
frequently until they do. Be extra
cautious in your driving.
Braking System Design
The hydraulic system that operates
the brakes has two separate circuits.
Each circuit works diagonally across
the vehicle (the left-front brake is
connected with the right-rear brake,
etc.). If one circuit should develop a
problem, you will still have braking
at two wheels.
The following features are also
equipped:
Creep Aid System
With the shift lever in D or S, this
feature applies brake pressure
briefly as you release the brake
pedal to prevent the vehicle from
moving unexpectedly.
Brake-Assist
This feature helps you apply the
brakes with less force during an
emergency braking situation.
Brake Pad Wear Indicators
The front disc brakes on all models
have audible brake wear indicators.
If the brake pads need replacing, you
will hear a distinctive, metallic
screeching sound when you apply
the brake pedal. If you do not have
the brake pads replaced, they will
screech all the time. It is normal for
the brakes to occasionally squeal or
squeak when you apply them.
Driving
233
12/04/18 14:59:16 42TF2C00_239
Anti-lock Brakes (ABS)
The anti-lock brake system (ABS)
helps prevent the wheels from
locking up, and helps you retain
steering control by pumping the
brakes rapidly, much faster than a
person can do it.
The electronic brake distribution
(EBD) system, which is part of the
ABS, also balances the front-to-rear
braking distribution according to
vehicle loading.
You will feel a pulsation in the brake
pedal when the ABS activates, and
you may hear some noise. This is
normal: it is the ABS rapidly
pumping the brakes. On dry roads,
you will need to press on the brake
pedal very hard before the ABS
activates. However, you may feel the
ABS activate immediately if you are
trying to stop on snow or ice.
ABS Indicator
If the ABS indicator comes on, the
anti-lock function of the braking
system has shut down. The brakes
still work like a conventional system,
but without anti-lock. You should
have your dealer inspect your vehicle
as soon as possible.
If the ABS indicator comes on while
driving, test the brakes as instructed
on page 317 .
You should never pump the brake pedal.
Let the ABS work for you by always
keeping firm, steady pressure on the
brake pedal. This is sometimes
referred to as ‘‘stomp and steer.’’
234
Driving
You will also see the symbol ‘‘
’’
with a ‘‘CHECK SYSTEM’’ message
on the multi-information display.
12/04/18 14:59:25 42TF2C00_240
Anti-lock Brakes (ABS)
If the ABS indicator and the brake
system indicator come on together,
and the parking brake is fully
released, the EBD system may also
be shut down.
Important Safety Reminders
ABS does not reduce the time or
distance it takes to stop the
vehicle. It only helps with steering
control during braking.
If this happens, you will also see the
symbols ‘‘
’’ (for ABS system)
and ‘‘
’’ (for Brake system) with
‘‘CHECK SYSTEM’’ messages on
the multi-information display.
ABS will not prevent a skid that
results from changing direction
abruptly, such as trying to take a
corner too fast or making a sudden
lane change. Always drive at a safe
speed for the road and weather
conditions.
Test your brakes as instructed on
page 317 . If the brakes feel normal,
drive slowly and have your vehicle
repaired by your dealer as soon as
possible. Avoid sudden hard braking
which could cause the rear wheels to
lock up and possibly lead to a loss of
control.
A vehicle with ABS may require a
longer distance to stop on loose or
uneven surfaces, such as gravel or
snow, than a vehicle without antilock.
ABS cannot prevent the loss of
stability. Always steer moderately
when you are braking hard. Severe
or sharp steering wheel movement
can still cause your vehicle to veer
into oncoming traffic or off the road.
Driving
235
12/04/18 14:59:32 42TF2C00_241
Driving in Bad Weather
Rain, fog, and snow conditions require a different driving technique
because of reduced traction and
visibility. Keep your vehicle wellmaintained and exercise greater
caution when you need to drive in
bad weather.
236
Driving
Driving Technique − Always drive
slower than you would in dry
weather. It takes your vehicle longer
to react, even in conditions that may
seem just barely damp. Apply
smooth, even pressure to all the
controls. Abrupt steering wheel
movements or sudden, hard application of the brakes can cause loss of
control in wet weather. Be extra
cautious for the first few kilometers
of driving while you adjust to the
change in driving conditions. This is
especially true in snow. A person can
forget some snow-driving techniques
during the summer months. Practice
is needed to relearn those skills.
Exercise extra caution when driving
in rain after a long dry spell. After
months of dry weather, the first
rains bring oil to the surface of the
roadway, making it slippery.
Visibility − Being able to see
clearly in all directions and being
visible to other drivers are important
in all weather conditions. This is
more difficult in bad weather. To be
seen more clearly during daylight
hours, turn on your headlights.
Inspect your windscreen wipers and
washers frequently. Keep the windscreen washer reservoir full of the
proper fluid. Have the windscreen
wiper blades replaced if they start to
streak the windscreen or leave parts
unwiped. Use the demister and air
conditioning to keep the windows
from fogging up on the inside (see
page 174 ).
12/04/18 14:59:39 42TF2C00_242
Driving in Bad Weather, Towing a Trailer
Traction − Check your tyres
frequently for wear and proper
pressure. Both are important in
preventing ‘‘aquaplaning’’ (loss of
traction on a wet surface). In the
winter, mount snow tyres on all four
wheels for the best handling.
Watch road conditions carefully,
they can change from moment to
moment. Wet leaves can be as slippery as ice. ‘‘Clear’’ roads can have
patches of ice. Driving conditions
can be very hazardous when the
outside temperature is near freezing.
The road surface can become
covered with areas of water puddles
mixed with areas of ice, so your
traction can change without warning.
Be careful when downshifting. If
traction is low, you can lock up the
drive wheels for a moment and cause
a skid.
Towing a Trailer
Your vehicle is not designed to tow a
trailer. Attempting to do so can void
your warranties.
Be very cautious when passing, or
being passed by other vehicles. The
spray from large vehicles reduces
your visibility, and the wind buffeting
can cause you to lose control.
CAUTION: Do not drive on the road
where water is deep. Driving through
deep water will cause damage to the
engine and electrical equipment and
the vehicle will break down.

Maintenance Safety, CVTF Service Reminder System
Failure to properly follow
maintenance instructions
and precautions can cause
you to be seriously hurt or
killed.
Always follow the
procedures and precautions
in this owner’s manual.
Some of the most important safety
precautions are given here. However,
we cannot warn you of every
conceivable hazard that can arise in
performing maintenance. Only you
can decide whether or not you
should perform a given task.
CVTF Service Reminder System
For the correct timing of CVTF
replacement, always refer to the
maintenance schedule in this owner’s
manual (see page 250 ).
Failure to replace the CVTF within the
recommended schedule stated in the
maintenance schedule in this owner’s
manual can result in serious damage to
the transmission.
One of the convenient features of
the multi-information display on your
vehicle is the CVTF service
reminder system.
The onboard computer in your
vehicle calculates the remaining
distance before the next service to
be performed.
The multi-information display shows
you that the service timing is near,
coming or passed. At each service
timing, the warning symbol or
symbol with a message (if selected)
comes on amber with the system
message indicator (
).

Important Service Precautions
If you have the required service
done but do not reset the display, or
reset the display without doing the
service, the system will not show the
correct service intervals. This can
lead to serious mechanical problems
because you will no longer have an
accurate record of when service is
needed.
Your authorized Honda dealer
knows your vehicle best and can
provide competent, efficient service.
However, service at a dealer is not
mandatory to keep your warranties
in effect. Service may be done by any
qualified service facility or person
who is skilled in this type of
automotive service. Make sure to
have the service facility or person
reset the display as previously
described. Keep all receipts as proof
of completion, and have the person
who does the work fill out your
maintenance service records. Check
the maintenance record in this
owner’s manual (see page 251 ).
We recommend using genuine
Honda parts and fluids whenever you
have maintenance service done.
These are manufactured to the same
high quality standards as the original
components, so you can be confident
of their performance and durability.

12/04/18 15:00:54 42TF2C00_253
Maintenance Schedule
The required maintenance schedule
specifies all maintenance required to
keep your vehicle in peak operating
condition. Maintenance work should
be performed in accordance with the
standards and specifications of
Honda by properly trained and
equipped technicians. Your
authorized dealer meets all of these
requirements.
The maintenance schedule assumes
you will use your vehicle as normal
transportation for passengers and
their possessions. You should also
follow these recommendations:
Avoid exceeding your vehicle’s
load limit. This puts excess stress
on the engine, brakes, and many
other vehicle parts.
Operate your vehicle on
reasonable roads within the legal
speed limit.
Drive your vehicle regularly over a
distance of several kilometers.
Always use the recommended
petrol only (see page 196 ).
248
Maintenance
We recommend the use of genuine
Honda parts and fluids or their
equivalent whenever you have
maintenance done. These are the
same high-quality items that went
into your vehicle when it was new, so
you can be sure they fit and perform
flawlessly.

Air Conditioning System
Your vehicle’s air conditioning is a
sealed system. Any major
maintenance, such as recharging,
should be done by a qualified
technician. You can do a couple of
things to make sure the air
conditioning works efficiently.
If the air conditioning does not get as
cold as before, have your dealer
check the system. Recharge the
system with Refrigerant HFC-134a
(R-134a).
Periodically check the engine’s
radiator and air conditioning
condenser for leaves, insects, and
dirt stuck to the front surface. These
block the air flow and reduce cooling
efficiency. Use a light spray from a
hose or a soft brush to remove them.
Whenever you have the air
conditioning system serviced, make
sure the service facility uses a
refrigerant recycling system. This
system captures the refrigerant for
reuse. Releasing refrigerant into the
atmosphere can damage the
environment.
The condenser and radiator fins
bend easily. Only use a low-pressure
spray or soft-bristle brush to clean
them.
AIR CONDITIONING CONDENSER
Run the air conditioning at least once
a week during the cold weather
months. Run it for at least 10
minutes while you are driving at a
steady speed with the engine at
normal operating temperature. This
circulates the lubricating oil contained in the refrigerant.

Tyres
To safely operate your vehicle, your
tyres must be the proper type and
size, in good condition with adequate
tread, and correctly inflated.
The following pages give more
detailed information on how to take
care of your tyres and what to do
when they need to be replaced.
Using tyres 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
tyre inflation and
maintenance.
282
Maintenance
Inflation Guidelines
Keeping the tyres properly inflated
provides the best combination of
handling, tread life, and riding
comfort.
Underinflated tyres wear unevenly,
adversely affect handling and fuel
economy, and are more likely to
fail from being overheated.
Overinflated tyres can make your
vehicle ride more harshly, are
more prone to damage from road
hazards, and wear unevenly.
We recommend that you visually
check your tyres every day. If you
think a tyre might be low, check it
immediately with a tyre gauge.
Use a gauge to measure the air
pressure in each tyre at least once a
month. Even tyres that are in good
condition may lose 10 to 20 kPa (0.1
to 0.2 kgf/cm , 1 to 2 psi) per month.
Remember to check the spare tyre
(if equipped) at the same time.
Check the air pressure when the
tyres are cold. This means the
vehicle has been parked for at least 3
hours, or driven less than 1.6 km.
Add or release air, if needed, to
match the recommended cold tyre
pressures on the label on the driver’s
doorjamb.
If you check air pressure when the
tyres are hot (driven for several
kilometers), you will see readings 30
to 40 kPa (0.3 to 0.4 kgf/cm , 4 to 6
psi) higher than the cold readings.
This is normal. Do not let air out to
match the recommended cold air
pressure. The tyre will be
underinflated.
12/04/18 15:06:07 42TF2C00_288
Tyres
You should get your own tyre
pressure gauge and use it whenever
you check your tyre pressures. This
will make it easier for you to tell if a
pressure loss is due to a tyre
problem and not due to a variation
between gauges.
While tubeless tyres have some
ability to self-seal if they are
punctured, you should look closely
for punctures if a tyre starts losing
pressure.
For convenience, the recommended
cold air pressures and tyre sizes are
on a label on the driver’s doorjamb.
Tyre Inspection
Every time you check inflation, you
should also examine the tyres for
damage, foreign objects, and wear.
You should look for:
TREAD WEAR INDICATOR
Bumps or bulges in the tread or
side of the tyre. Replace the tyre if
you find either of these conditions.
Cuts, splits, or cracks in the side
of the tyre. Replace the tyre if you
can see fabric or cord.
Excessive tread wear.
INDICATOR LOCATION MARKS
Your tyres have wear indicators
moulded into the tread. When the
tread wears down, you will see a 12.7
mm wide band across the tread. This
shows there is less than 1.6 mm of
tread left on the tyre.
A tyre this worn gives very little
traction on wet roads. You should
replace the tyre if you can see three
or more tread wear indicators.

Tyre Maintenance
In addition to proper inflation,
correct wheel alignment helps to
decrease tyre wear. If you find a tyre
is worn unevenly, have your dealer
check the wheel alignment.
Have your dealer check the tyres if
you feel a consistent vibration while
driving. A tyre should always be
rebalanced if it is removed from the
wheel. When you have new tyres
installed, make sure they are
balanced. This increases riding
comfort and tyre life. For best
results, have the installer perform a
dynamic balance.
Improper wheel weights can damage
your vehicle’s aluminium wheels.
Use only genuine Honda wheel
weights for balancing.

Maintenance
Tyre Rotation
Front
Front
(For non-directional (For directional
Tyres and Wheels) Tyres and Wheels)
To help increase tyre life and
distribute wear more evenly, rotate
the tyres every 10,000 km. Move the
tyres to the positions shown in the
illustration each time they are
rotated. The above illustration shows
how the tyres should be rotated.
If you purchase directional tyres,
rotate only front-to-back.
When the tyres are rotated, make
sure the air pressures are checked.

Tyres
Replacing Tyres and Wheels
Replace your tyres with radial tyres
of the same size, load range, speed
rating, and maximum cold tyre
pressure rating (as shown on the
tyre’s sidewall).
It is best to replace all four tyres at
the same time. If that is not possible
or necessary, replace the two front
tyres or two rear tyres as a pair.
Replacing just one tyre can seriously
affect your vehicle’s handling.
Mixing radial and bias-ply tyres on
your vehicle can reduce braking
ability, traction, and steering
accuracy. Using tyres of a different
size or construction can cause the
ABS to work inconsistently.
If you ever replace a wheel, make
sure that the wheel’s specifications
match those of the original wheels.
Consult your dealer before replacing
tyres.
The ABS works by comparing the
speed of the wheels. When replacing
tyres, use the same size originally
supplied with the vehicle. Tyre size
and construction can affect wheel
speed and may cause the system to
work.
Installing improper tyres 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 tyres recommended in the
tyre information label on
your vehicle.
Replacement wheels are available at
your dealer.

Winter Tyres
Because of the limited winter
qualification of summer tyres for
winter use we recommend the use of
winter tyres (M+S tyres) on snowy
and icy roads. If M+S tyres are
installed, all four wheels should be
equipped to insure safe driving. Use
only tyres of the same brand with
the same profile. Pay attention to the
tyre size, load capacity and speed
class when buying.
Tyre Chains
Use snow chains only in an
emergency or when they are legally
required for driving through a
certain area. Install the snow chains
on the front wheels. Use greater
caution when driving with snow
chains on snow or ice. They may
have less-predictable handling than
good winter tyres without chains.
Some snow chains may damage the
vehicle’s tyres, wheels, suspension,
brake lines and body. Choose only
fine limbed chains which guarantee
enough free space between the tyre
and the other vehicle parts in the
wheelhouse. Pay attention to the
sectional assembly view and other
directions from the chain
manufacturer. Consult your dealer
before purchasing any type of chains
for your vehicle.
12/04/18 15:06:37 42TF2C00_292
Tyres
When you have installed tyre chains,
drive at less than 30 km/h on roads
covered with snow or ice. To
minimize tyre and chain wear, avoid
driving on cleared roads with chains
installed.
Use only the specified chains or their equivalents for your tyres as listed.
Install them on the front tyres only.

Checking the 12 Volt Battery
TEST INDICATOR WINDOW
Check the condition of the 12 volt
battery monthly by looking at the
test indicator window. The label on
the 12 volt battery explains the test
indicator’s colours.
288
Maintenance
Check the terminals for corrosion (a
white or yellowish powder). To
remove it, cover the terminals with a
solution of baking soda and water. It
will bubble up and turn brown. When
this stops, wash it off with plain
water. Dry off the battery with a
cloth or paper towel. Coat the
terminals with grease to help prevent
future corrosion.
If additional 12 volt battery
maintenance is needed, see your
dealer or a qualified technician.
If you need to connect the 12 volt
battery to a charger, disconnect both
cables to prevent damaging your
vehicle’s electrical system. Always
disconnect the negative (−) cable
first, and reconnect it last.
If your vehicle’s 12 volt battery is
disconnected or goes dead, the IMA
battery level gauge reading will not
be correct the next time you turn the
ignition switch to the ON (II)
position. It will show less than the
actual level temporarily. It will show
the correct level after you drive for
at least 30 minutes.

Checking the 12 Volt Battery
Emergency Procedures
The battery contains sulfuric
acid (electrolyte) which is
highly corrosive and
poisonous.
Eyes − Flush with water from a cup
or other container for at least 15
minutes. (Water under pressure can
damage the eye.) Call a physician
immediately.
Keep all sparks, open flames,
and smoking materials away
from the battery.
Getting electrolyte in your
eyes or on your skin can
cause serious burns. Wear
protective clothing and eye
protection when working on
or near the battery.
Skin − Remove contaminated
clothing. Flush the skin with large
quantities of water. Call a physician
immediately.
Wear protective clothing and
a face shield, or have a skilled
technician do the battery
maintenance.
Swallowing electrolyte can
cause fatal poisoning if
immediate action is not
taken.
The battery gives off
explosive hydrogen gas
during normal operation. A
spark or open flame can
cause the battery to explode
with enough force to kill or
seriously hurt you.
Swallowing − Drink water or milk.
Call a physician immediately.

If your vehicle’s battery is
disconnected or goes dead, the audio
system may disable itself. The next
time you turn on the radio, you will
see ‘‘ENTER CODE’’ in the
frequency display. Use the preset
buttons to enter the code (see page

If your vehicle’s battery is
disconnected, or goes dead, the time
setting is lost. To reset the time, see
page 192 .
Vehicle Storage
If you need to park your vehicle for
an extended period (more than 1
month), there are several things you
should do to prepare it for storage.
Proper preparation helps prevent
deterioration and makes it easier to
get your vehicle back on the road. If
possible, store your vehicle indoors.
Disconnect the 12 volt battery.
Wash and dry the exterior
completely.
Leave the parking brake off. Put
the transmission in Park.
Block the rear wheels.
Maintenance
Leave one window open slightly (if
the vehicle is being stored
indoors).
Fill the fuel tank.
Clean the interior. Make sure the
carpeting, floor mats, etc., are
completely dry.
290
If the vehicle is to be stored for a
longer period, it should be
supported on jackstands so the
tyres are off the ground.
Support the front and rear wiper
blade arms with a folded towel or
rag so they do not touch the
windscreen.
To minimize sticking, apply a
silicone spray lubricant to all door
and tailgate seals. Also, apply a
vehicle body wax to the painted
surfaces that mate with the door
and tailgate seals.
12/04/18 15:07:07 42TF2C00_296
Vehicle Storage
Cover the vehicle with a
‘‘breathable’’ cover, one made
from a porous material such as
cotton. Non-porous materials, such
as plastic sheeting, trap moisture,
which can damage the paint.
Reconnect the 12 volt battery and
drive your vehicle every month for
about 30 minutes. This will keep
the IMA battery charged and in
good condition.
If possible, periodically run the
engine until it reaches full
operating temperature (the
cooling fans cycle on and off
twice). Preferably, do this once a
month.
If you store your vehicle for 1 year or
longer, have your dealer perform the
maintenance inspections called for in
the 2 years/40,000 km maintenance
schedule as soon as you take it out of
storage (see page 248 ). The
replacements called for in the
maintenance schedule are not
needed unless the vehicle has
actually reached that time or
distance.
If this vehicle is unused for over one
month, the service life of the 100V
Nickel-Metal Hydride battery will be
reduced and the battery may be
permanently damaged.

Exterior Care
Washing
Frequent washing helps preserve
your vehicle’s beauty. Dirt and grit
can scratch the paint, while tree sap
and bird droppings can permanently
ruin the finish.
Rinse the vehicle thoroughly with
cool water to remove loose dirt.
Wash your vehicle in a shady area,
not in direct sunlight. If the vehicle is
parked in the sun, move it into the
shade and let the exterior cool down
before you start.
Wash the vehicle using water and
detergent solution and a softbristle brush, sponge, or soft cloth.
Start at the top and work your way
down. Rinse frequently.
Only use the solvents and cleaners
recommended in this owner’s
manual.
Chemical solvents and strong
cleaners can damage the paint, metal,
and plastic on your vehicle.
294
Appearance Care
Fill a bucket with cool water. Mix
in a product made especially for
car washing.
Check the body for road tar, tree
sap, etc. Remove these stains with
tar remover or turpentine. Rinse it
off immediately so it does not
harm the finish. Remember to rewax these areas, even if the rest of
the vehicle does not need waxing.
When you have washed and rinsed
the whole exterior, dry it with a
chamois or soft towel. Letting it
air-dry will cause dulling and water
spots.
As you dry the vehicle, inspect it for
chips and scratches that could allow
corrosion to start. Repair them with
touch-up paint (see page 296 ).

Waxing
Always wash and dry the whole
vehicle before waxing it. You should
wax your vehicle, including the metal
trim, whenever water sits on the
surface in large patches. It should
form into beads or droplets after

You should use a quality liquid or
paste wax. Apply it according to the
instructions on the container. In
general, there are two types of

that has oxidized and lost some of its
shine. They normally contain mild
abrasives and solvents that remove
the top layer of the finish. You
should use a polish on your vehicle if
the finish does not have its original
shine after using a wax.
Cleaning tar, insects, etc. with
removers also takes off the wax.
Remember to re-wax those areas,
even if the rest of the vehicle does
not need waxing.
Aluminium Wheels
Clean your vehicle’s aluminium alloy
wheels as you do the rest of the
exterior. Wash them with the same
solution, and rinse them thoroughly.
The wheels have a protective
clearcoat that keeps the aluminium
from corroding and tarnishing. Using
harsh chemicals, including some
commercial wheel cleaners or stiff
brushes, can damage this clear-coat.
Only use a mild detergent and soft
brush or sponge to clean the wheels.
Waxes − A wax coats the finish and
protects it from damage by exposure
to sunlight, air pollution, etc. You
should use a wax on your vehicle
when it is new.

Roof Antenna
Paint Touch-up
Your dealer has touch-up paint to
match your vehicle’s colour. The
colour code is printed on a plate on
the front doorjamb on the left side.
Take this code to your dealer so you
are sure to get the correct colour.
Inspect your vehicle frequently for
chips or scratches in the paint.
Repair them right away to prevent
corrosion of the metal underneath.
Use the touch-up paint only on small
chips and scratches. More extensive
paint damage should be repaired by
a professional.
Your vehicle is equipped with an
antenna at the rear of the roof.
Before using a ‘‘drive-through’’ car
wash, remove the antenna by
unscrewing it by hand. This prevents
the antenna from being damaged by
the car wash brushes.
Afterward, reinstall the antenna and
tighten it securely by hand.

Interior Care
Carpeting
Vacuum the carpeting frequently to
remove dirt. Ground-in dirt will make
the carpet wear out faster.
Periodically shampoo the carpet to
keep it looking new. Use one of the
foam-type carpet cleaners on the
market. 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.
Floor Mats
If you remove the driver’s floor mat,
make sure to re-anchor it when you
put it back in your vehicle.
If you use non-Honda floor mats,
make sure they fit properly and that
they can be used with the floor mat
anchors. Do not put additional floor
mats on top of an anchored mat.
If equipped
The driver’s floor mat that came
with your vehicle hooks over the
floor mat anchors. To lock each
anchor, turn the knob clockwise.
This keeps the floor mat from sliding
forward and possibly interfering with
the pedals.
When cleaning or replacing, turn the
knob anticlockwise to unhook the
floor mat.

Interior Care
Fabric
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 stubborn spots, use a
commercially-available fabric cleaner.
Test it on a hidden area of the fabric
first, to make sure it does not bleach
or stain the fabric. Follow the
instructions that come with the
cleaner.
Vinyl
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 soft-bristle brush on
more difficult spots. You can also use
commercially-available spray or
foam-type vinyl cleaners.
298
Appearance Care
Leather
(For some types)
Vacuum dirt and dust from the
leather frequently. Pay close
attention to the pleats and seams.
Clean the leather with a soft cloth
dampened with a 90% water and 10%
neutral wool detergent solution.
Then buff it with a clean, dry cloth.
Remove any dust or dirt on leather
surfaces immediately.
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 demister wires are
bonded to the inside of the glass.
Wiping vigorously up-and-down can
dislodge and break the demister
wires. When cleaning the rear
window, use gentle pressure and
wipe side-to-side.

Interior Care
Seat Belts
OPENING
Dirt build-up around the openings of
the seat belt anchors can cause the
belts to retract slowly. Wipe the
openings with a clean cloth
dampened in mild soap and warm
water or isopropyl alcohol.
Air Fresheners
If you want to use an air freshener/
deodorizer in the interior of your
vehicle, it is best to use a solid type.
Some liquid air fresheners contain
chemicals that may cause parts of
the interior trim and fabric to crack
or discolour.
If you use a liquid air freshener,
make sure you fasten it securely so it
does not spill as you drive.
If your seat belts get dirty, use a soft
brush with a mixture of mild soap
and warm water to clean them. Do
not use bleach, dye, or cleaning
solvents. Let the belts air-dry before
you use the vehicle.

12/04/18 15:08:07 42TF2C00_305
Corrosion Protection
Two factors normally contribute to
causing corrosion in your vehicle:
1. Moisture trapped in body cavities.
Dirt and road salt that collects in
hollows on the underside of the
vehicle stays damp, promoting
corrosion in that area.
2. Removal of paint and protective
coatings from the exterior and
underside of the vehicle.
Many corrosion-preventive measures
are built into your vehicle. You can
help keep your vehicle from
corroding by performing some
simple periodic maintenance:
Repair chips and scratches in the
paint as soon as you discover them.
Inspect and clean out the drain
holes in the bottom of the doors
and body.
Check the floor coverings for
dampness. Carpeting and floor
mats may remain damp for a long
time, especially in winter. This
dampness can eventually cause
the floor panels to corrode.
300
Appearance Care
Use a high-pressure spray to clean
the underside of your vehicle. This
is especially important in areas
that use road salt in winter. It is
also a good idea in humid climates
and areas subject to salty air. Be
careful of the ABS wheel sensors
and wiring at each wheel.
Have the corrosion-preventive
coatings on the underside of your
vehicle inspected and repaired
periodically.

Compact Spare Tyre
Use the compact spare tyre as a
temporary replacement only. Get
your regular tyre repaired or
replaced, and put it back on your
vehicle as soon as you can.
Check the air pressure of the
compact spare tyre every time you
check the other tyres. It should be
inflated to:
420 kPa (4.2 kgf/cm , 60 psi)
Follow these precautions:
Never exceed 80 km/h.
This tyre gives a harsher ride and
less traction on some road
surfaces. Use greater caution
while driving.
Do not mount snow chains on the
compact spare tyre.
302
Taking Care of the Unexpected
Do not use your compact spare
tyre on another vehicle unless it is
the same make and model.
INDICATOR LOCATION MARK
Do not use more than one
compact spare tyre at the same
time.
The compact spare tyre is smaller
than the regular tyre. Your
vehicle’s ground clearance
reduces when the compact spare
tyre is installed. Driving over road
debris or bumps could possibly
damage the underside of your
vehicle.
TREAD WEAR INDICATOR BAR
Replace the tyre when you can see
the tread wear indicator bars. The
replacement tyre should be the same
size and design, mounted on the
same wheel. The spare tyre is not
designed to be mounted on a regular
wheel, and the spare wheel is not
designed for mounting a regular tyre.
12/04/18 15:08:26 42TF2C00_308
Changing a Flat Tyre
If you have a flat tyre while driving,
pull over safely. Drive slowly along
the shoulder until you get to an area
far away from traffic lanes.
Use the jack that came with your
vehicle. If you try to raise another
vehicle with this jack or use another
jack to raise your vehicle, the vehicle
or jack can be damaged.
The vehicle can easily roll off
the jack, seriously injuring
anyone underneath.
Follow the directions for
changing a tyre exactly, and
no person should place any
portion of their body under a
vehicle that is supported by a
jack.

If the Engine Won’t Start
The engine normally starts with the
IMA motor. If the engine does not
start while the IMA battery charge is
normally sufficient, check the
following:
Check the transmission interlock.
The shift lever must be in Park or
neutral or the starter will not
operate.
Are you using a properly coded
key? An improperly coded key will
cause the immobilizer system
indicator in the instrument panel
to blink rapidly (see page 131 ).
Are you using the proper starting
procedure? Refer to Starting the
Engine on page 211 .
308
Taking Care of the Unexpected
Do you have fuel? Check the fuel
gauge; the low fuel indicator may
not be working.
There may be an electrical
problem, such as no power to the
fuel pump. Check all the fuses
(see page 320 ).
When the IMA battery charge is low,
the starter motor is used to start the
engine. If the engine does not start,
check the following:
Turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position. Turn on the
headlights, and check their
brightness. If the headlights are
very dim or do not come on at all,
the 12 volt battery is discharged.
See Jump Starting on page 310 .
12/04/18 15:09:15 42TF2C00_314
If the Engine Won’t Start
Turn the ignition switch to the
START (III) position. If the
headlights do not dim, check the
condition of the fuses. If the fuses
are OK, there is probably
something wrong with the
electrical circuit for the ignition
switch or starter motor. You will
need a qualified technician to
determine the problem. See
Emergency Towing on page 327 .
If you find nothing wrong, you will
need a qualified technician to find
the problem. See Emergency
Towing on page 327 .
If the headlights dim noticeably or
go out when you try to start the
engine, either the 12 volt battery is
discharged or the connections are
corroded. Check the condition of the
12 volt battery and terminal
connections (see page 288 ). You can
then try jump starting the vehicle
from a booster 12 volt battery (see
page 310 ).

Jump Starting
Although this seems like a simple
procedure, you should take several
precautions.
A battery can explode if you
do not follow the correct
procedure, seriously injuring
anyone nearby.
Keep all sparks, open flames,
and smoking materials away
from the battery.
You cannot start your vehicle with an
automatic transmission (CVT) by
pushing or pulling it.
310
Taking Care of the Unexpected
To jump start your vehicle:
1. Open the bonnet, and check the
physical condition of the 12 volt
battery. In very cold weather,
check the condition of the
electrolyte. If it seems slushy or
frozen, do not try jump starting
until it thaws.
BOOSTER BATTERY
If a battery sits in extreme cold, the
electrolyte inside can freeze.
Attempting to jump start with a
frozen battery can cause it to rupture.
The numbers in the illustration show
you the order to connect the jumper
cables.
2. Turn off all electrical accessories:
heater, A/C, climate control, audio
system, lights, etc. Put the
transmission in Park, and set the
parking brake.
3. Connect one jumper cable to the
positive (+) terminal on your
battery. Connect the other end to
the positive (+) terminal on the
booster battery.

Jump Starting
5. If the booster battery is in another
vehicle, have an assistant start
that vehicle and run it at a fast idle.
6. Start the vehicle. If the starter
motor still operates slowly, check
that the jumper cables have good
metal-to-metal contact.
4. Connect the second jumper cable
to the negative (−) terminal on
the booster battery. Connect the
other end to the grounding strap
as shown. Do not connect this
jumper cable to any other part of
the engine.
Keep the ends of the jumper
cables away from each other and
any metal on the vehicle until
everything is disconnected.
Otherwise, you may cause an
electrical short.
7. Once the vehicle is running,
disconnect the negative cable from
your vehicle, then from the
booster battery. Disconnect the
positive cable from your vehicle,
and then from the booster battery.

If the Engine Overheats
The high temperature indicator
should be off under most conditions.
If the engine coolant temperature
gets higher than normal, the
indicator will blink. If it stays on, you
should determine the reason (hot
day, driving up a steep hill, etc.).
You will also see the symbol ‘‘
’’
with an ‘‘ENGINE TEMP. HIGH’’
message on the multi-information
display.
If the vehicle overheats, you should
take immediate action. The only
indication may be the high
temperature indicator blinking or
remaining on. Or you may see steam
or spray coming from under the
bonnet.
312
Taking Care of the Unexpected
Driving with the high temperature
indicator on can cause serious
damage to your engine.
Steam and spray from an
overheated engine can
seriously scald you.
Do not open the bonnet if
steam is coming out.
1. Safely pull to the side of the road.
Put the transmission in Park and
set the parking brake. Turn off the
climate control system and all
other accessories. Turn on the
hazard warning lights.
2. If you see steam and/or spray
coming from under the bonnet,
turn off the engine. Wait until you
see no more signs of steam or
spray, then open the bonnet.
3. If you do not see steam or spray,
leave the engine running, and
check the high temperature
indicator. If the high heat is due to
overloading, the engine should
start to cool down almost
immediately. If it does, wait until
the high temperature indicator
goes off, then continue driving.
4. If the high temperature indicator
stays on, turn off the engine.
12/04/18 15:09:49 42TF2C00_318
If the Engine Overheats
5. Look for any obvious coolant leaks,
such as a split radiator hose.
Everything is still extremely hot,
so use caution. If you find a leak, it
must be repaired before you
continue driving (see Emergency
Towing on page 327 ).
6. If you don’t find an obvious leak,
check the coolant level in the
radiator reserve tank (see page
200 ). Add coolant if the level is
below the MIN mark.
7. If there was no coolant in the
reserve tank, you may need to add
coolant to the radiator. Let the
engine cool down until the high
temperature indicator goes off
before checking the radiator.
Removing the radiator cap
while the engine is hot can
cause the coolant to spray
out, seriously scalding you.
Always let the engine and
radiator cool down before
removing the radiator cap.
8. Using gloves or a large heavy
cloth, turn the radiator cap
anticlockwise, without pushing
down, to the first stop. After the
pressure releases, push down on
the cap, and turn it until it comes
off.
9. Start the engine, and set the
temperature to maximum heat
(climate control to AUTO at
‘‘
’’). Add coolant to the
radiator up to the base of the filler
neck. If you do not have the
proper coolant mixture available,
you can add plain water.
Remember to have the cooling
system drained and refilled with
the proper mixture as soon as you
can.
10.Put the radiator cap back on
tightly. Run the engine, and check
the high temperature indicator. If
it begins to blink or comes on
again, the engine needs repair
(see Emergency Towing on page
327 ).
11.If the temperature stays normal,
check the coolant level in the
radiator reserve tank. If it has
gone down, add coolant to the
MAX mark. Put the cap back on
tightly.

Low Oil Pressure Indicator
This indicator should come
on when the ignition switch
is in the ON (II) position, and go out
after the engine starts. It should
never come on when the engine is
running. If it starts flashing or stays
on, the oil pressure has dropped very
low or lost pressure. Serious engine
damage is possible and you should
take immediate action.
You will also see the symbol ‘‘
’’
with an ‘‘OIL PRESSURE LOW’’
message on the multi-information
display.
NOTE:
The indicator notifies you of low oil
pressure and does not measure the
oil level. Check your vehicle’s oil
level at each refueling.
314
Taking Care of the Unexpected
Running the engine with low oil
pressure can cause serious
mechanical damage almost
immediately. Turn off the engine as
soon as you can safely get the
vehicle stopped.
1. Safely pull off the road, and shut
off the engine. Turn on the hazard
warning lights.
2. Let the vehicle sit for a minute.
Open the bonnet, and check the oil
level (see page 199 ). An engine
very low on oil can lose pressure
during cornering and other driving
manoeuvres.
3. If necessary, add oil to bring the
level back to between the upper
and lower mark on the dipstick.
4. Start the engine, and watch the oil
pressure indicator. If it does not go
out within 10 seconds, turn off the
engine. There is a mechanical
problem that needs to be repaired
before you can continue driving
(see Emergency Towing on page
327 ).
12/04/18 15:10:05 42TF2C00_320
12 Volt Battery Charging System Indicator
This indicator should come
on when the ignition switch
is in the ON (II) position, and go out
after the engine starts. If the
charging system indicator comes on
brightly when the engine is running,
the battery is not being charged.
You will also see the symbol ‘‘
’’
with a ‘‘CHECK SYSTEM’’ message
on the multi-information display.
Immediately turn off all electrical
accessories. Try not to use other
electrically operated controls such as
the power windows. Keep the engine
running; starting the engine will
discharge the battery rapidly.
Go to a dealer or a service station
where you can get technical
assistance.
The charging system indicator may
also come on if the Integrated Motor
Assist (IMA) battery charge drops
below a desired level and the engine
starts to recharge the battery.
This indicator may blink after you
start the vehicle in the morning
when the temperature is below
−30°C. It will stop blinking when
the IMA battery warms up.

Malfunction Indicator Lamp
This indicator comes on,
then goes out when you
turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position. If the indicator comes
on while driving, it means one of the
engine’s emissions control systems
may have a problem. Even though
you may feel no difference in your
vehicle’s performance, it can reduce
your fuel economy and cause
increased emissions. Continued
operation may cause serious damage.
You will also see the symbol ‘‘
’’
with a ‘‘CHECK SYSTEM’’ message
on the multi-information display.
If this indicator comes on, safely pull
off the road and turn off the engine.
Restart the engine and watch the
indicator. If it stays on, have your
vehicle checked by the dealer as
soon as possible. Drive moderately
until the dealer has inspected the
problem. Avoid full-throttle
acceleration and driving at high
speed.
You should also have the dealer
inspect your vehicle if the indicator
comes on frequently, even though it
goes off when you follow the above
procedure.
The malfunction indicator lamp may
also come on with the ‘‘D’’ indicator.
316
Taking Care of the Unexpected
If you keep driving with the
malfunction indicator lamp on, you
can damage your vehicle’s emissions
controls and engine. Those repairs
may not be covered by your vehicle’s
warranties.
If you turn the ignition switch to the
ON (II) position, without starting the
engine, the malfunction indicator
lamp will come on for about 20
seconds. It then goes off or blinks 5
times under various conditions. This
is normal: it shows the self-testing
condition of the diagnostics for the
emissions control systems.

Brake System Indicator
Brake System Indicator
(Red)
The brake system indicator normally
comes on when you turn the ignition
switch to the ON (II) position, and as
a reminder to check the parking
brake. It will stay on if you do not
fully release the parking brake.
You will also see the symbol ‘‘
with a ‘‘RELEASE PARKING
BRAKE’’ message on the multiinformation display.
’’
If the fluid level is low, take your
vehicle to a dealer, and have the
brake system inspected for leaks or
worn brake pads.
You will also see the symbol ‘‘
’’
with a ‘‘BRAKE FLUID LOW’’
message on the multi-information
display.
However, if the brake pedal does not
feel normal, you should take
immediate action. A problem in one
part of the system’s dual circuit
design will still give you braking at
two wheels. You will feel the brake
pedal go down much farther before
the vehicle begins to slow down, and
you will have to press harder on the
pedal.
If the brake system indicator comes
on while driving, the brake fluid level
is probably low. Press lightly on the
brake pedal to see if it feels normal.
If it does, check the brake fluid level
the next time you stop at a service
station (see page 260 ).

Slow down and pull to the side of the
road when it is safe. Because of the
long distance needed to stop, it is
hazardous to drive the vehicle. You
should have it towed and repaired as
soon as possible (see Emergency
Towing on page 327 ).
If this indicator comes on for any
other reason, have your vehicle
inspected by your dealer. There may
be a malfunction with the electric
brake distribution (EBD) system.
Avoid hard braking and high speed
driving.

Opening the Fuel Fill Door Manually
If there is a problem with the power
door lock system and you cannot
unlock the driver’s door, use the
release lever behind the left side
cover in the luggage area.

1. Open the tailgate. Place a cloth on
the edge of the cover to prevent
scratches. Remove it by carefully
prying in the notch on its middle
edge with a small flat-tip
screwdriver.
2. To open the fuel fill door, pull the
release lever rearward.

Checking and Replacing Fuses
If something electrical in your
vehicle stops working, the first thing
you should check for is a blown fuse.
Determine from the chart on pages
324 − 326 , or the diagram on the
fuse box lid or the fuse label, which
fuse or fuses control that component.
Check those fuses first, but check all
the fuses before deciding that a
blown fuse is not the cause. Replace
any blown fuses and check if the
device works.
1. Turn the ignition switch to the
LOCK (0) position. Make sure the
headlights and all other
accessories are off.
2. Remove the cover from the fuse
box.

3. Check each of the large fuses in
the under-bonnet fuse box on the
12 volt battery by looking through
the top at the wire inside.
4. Check each of the large fuses in
the interior fuse box by looking at
the wire inside. Removing these
fuses requires a Phillips-head
screwdriver.
Replacement of these fuses should
be done by your dealer.

BLOWN
6. Look for a blown wire inside the
fuse. If it is blown, replace it with
one of the spare fuses of the same
rating or lower.
If you cannot drive the vehicle
without fixing the problem, and you
do not have a spare fuse, take a fuse
of the same rating or a lower rating
from one of the other circuits. Make
sure you can do without that circuit
temporarily (such as the accessory
power socket).
If you replace the blown fuse with a
spare fuse that has a lower rating, it
might blow out again. This does not
indicate that anything is wrong.
Replace the fuse with one of the
correct rating as soon as you can.
12/04/18 15:11:00 42TF2C00_328
Fuses
Replacing a fuse with one that has a
higher rating greatly increases the
chances of damaging the electrical
system. If you do not have a
replacement fuse with the proper
rating for the circuit, install one with
a lower rating.
When the audio system is disabled,
the clock setting in the audio system
is cancelled. You need to reset the
clock according to the instructions in
the audio system section in this
owner’s manual.
7. If the replacement fuse of the
same rating blows in a short time,
there is probably a serious
electrical problem with your
vehicle. Leave the blown fuse in
that circuit, and have your vehicle
checked by a qualified technician.

Emergency Towing
If your vehicle needs to be towed,
call a professional towing service or
organization. Never tow your vehicle
with just a rope or chain. It is very
dangerous.
There are three popular types of
professional towing equipment.
Flat-bed Equipment − The operator
loads your vehicle on the back of a
truck. This is the best way to
transport your vehicle.
Wheel-lift Equipment − The tow
truck uses two pivoting arms that go
under the front tyres and lift them
off the ground. The rear tyres
remain on the ground. This is an
acceptable way to tow your
vehicle.
Sling-type Equipment − The tow
truck uses metal cables with hooks
on the ends. These hooks go around
parts of the frame or suspension and
the cables lift that end of the vehicle
off the ground. Your vehicle’s
suspension and body can be
seriously damaged. This method of
towing is unacceptable.
If, due to damage, your vehicle must
be towed with the front wheels on
the ground, do this:
Start the engine.
Shift to the D position and hold for
5 seconds, then to N.
Turn off the engine.
Leave the ignition switch in the
ACCESSORY (I) position so the
steering wheel does not lock.
Release the parking brake.
Improper towing preparation will
damage the transmission. Follow the
above procedure exactly. If you
cannot shift the transmission or start
the engine, your vehicle must be
transported with the front wheels off
the ground.
With the front wheels on the ground,
it is best to tow the vehicle no farther
than 80 km, and keep the speed
below 55 km/h.
Trying to lift or tow your vehicle by
the bumpers will cause serious
damage. The bumpers are not
designed to support the vehicle’s
weight.

12/04/18 15:11:33 42TF2C00_333
Emergency Towing
If you decide to tow your vehicle
with all four wheels on the ground,
make sure you use a properlydesigned and attached tow bar.
Prepare the vehicle for towing as
described above, and leave the
ignition switch in the ACCESSORY
(I) position so the steering wheel
does not lock. Make sure the radio
and any electrical accessories are
turned off so they do not run down
the battery.
328
Taking Care of the Unexpected
The steering system can be
damaged if the steering wheel is
locked. Leave the ignition switch in
the ACCESSORY (I) position, and
make sure the steering wheel turns
freely before you begin towing.
12/04/18 15:11:41 42TF2C00_334
If Your Vehicle Gets Stuck
If your vehicle gets stuck in sand,
mud, or snow, call a towing service
to pull it out (see page 327 ).
COVER
FRONT TOWING HOOK
For very short distances, such as
freeing the vehicle, you can use the
detachable towing hook that mounts
on either anchor in the front or rear
bumper.
To use the towing hook:
1. Take the towing hook and the
extension out of the tool kit in the
luggage area.
2. Put a cloth on the edge of the
cover to prevent scratches.
Remove the cover from the front
bumper by using the flat-tip end of
the extension.
3. Screw the towing hook into the
bolt hole behind the bumper, then
tighten the hook securely with the
extension.
To avoid damage to your vehicle, use
the towing hook for straight, flat
ground towing only. Do not tow at an
angle. The tow hook should not be
used to tow the vehicle onto a flat
bed. Do not use it as a tie down.

Three Way Catalytic Converters
Follow the emission standard of
contaminant emission below:
· GB18352.3-2005
Limits and measuring methods (III,
IV) for emissions from light-duty
vehicles.
The three way catalytic converters
must operate at a high temperature
for the chemical reactions to take
place. They can set on fire any
combustible materials that come
near them. Park your vehicle away
from high grass, dry leaves, or other
flammables.
338
Technical Information
Always use unleaded petrol. Even a
small amount of leaded petrol can
contaminate the catalyst metals,
making the three way catalytic
converters ineffective.
