Airbags
Your vehicle is equipped with four types of airbags: front airbags, front-seat
knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
n Front Airbags (SRS)
The front SRS airbags inflate in a moderate-to-severe frontal collision to
help protect the head and chest of the driver and/or front passenger. They
are housed in the center of the steering wheel for the driver and in the
dashboard for the front passenger. Both airbags are marked SRS AIRBAG.

SRS (Supplemental Restraint
System)
designed to supplement seat belts, not replace them. Seat belts are the
occupant’s primary restraint system.
Advanced Airbags
The front airbags have advanced features to help reduce the likelihood of
airbag-related injuries to smaller occupants.

includes a seat position sensor.
Based on information from this sensor
and the severity of the impact, the

We advise against allowing a child
age 12 or under to ride in the front
passenger’s seat. However, if you do
allow a child age 12 or under to ride
in the front passenger’s seat, note
Passenger’s
Seat Weight
that the system will automatically

turn off the front passenger’s airbag
if the sensors detect that the child is
approximately 65 lbs (29 kg) or less.
For the advanced airbags to work properly:
• Do not spill any liquid on or under the seats.
• Do not put any object under the passenger’s seat.
• Make sure any objects are positioned properly on the floor. Improperly
positioned objects can interfere with the advanced airbag sensors.
• All occupants should sit upright and wear their seat belts properly.
• Do not cover the passenger’s side dashboard with a cloth, towel, cover,
etc.
• Make sure the floor mat behind the front passenger’s seat is hooked to
the floor mat anchor. An improperly placed mat can interfere with the
advanced airbag sensors.
n Knee Airbags
Knee airbags help keep the driver and front passenger in the proper position
during a moderate to severe frontal impact.
n Side Airbags
The side airbags help protect the upper torso and pelvis of the driver or a
front passenger during a moderate-to-severe side impact. They are housed
in the outside edge of the driver’s and front passenger’s seat-backs. Both
are marked SIDE AIRBAG.
n Side Curtain Airbags
Side curtain airbags help protect the heads of the driver and passengers
in the outer seating positions during a moderate-to-severe side impact.
The side curtain airbags equipped in this vehicle are also designed to help
reduce the likelihood of partial and complete ejection of vehicle occupants
through side windows in crashes, particularly rollover crashes.
Safety
The side curtain airbags are located in the ceiling above the side windows
on both sides of the vehicle.
The side curtain airbags are designed to deploy in a rollover or moderate-tosevere side impact. If the SRS control unit senses that your vehicle is about
to roll over, it immediately deploys both side curtain airbags and activates
both front seat belt tensioners. If the impact is on the passenger’s side, the
passenger’s side curtain airbag will inflate even if there are no occupants
on that side of the vehicle.
To get the best protection from the side curtain airbags, occupants should

wear their seat belts properly, sit upright and well back in their seats.
Side curtain airbag storage

Do not attach any objects to the side windows or roof pillars, as they can
interfere with the proper operation of the side curtain airbags.
When side curtain airbags deploy in a frontal collision
One or both side curtain airbags may inflate in a moderate-to-severe angled
frontal collision. In this case, the side curtain airbags will deploy slightly

n Important Facts About Your Airbags
Always wear your seat belt properly, 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.
Do not place hard or sharp objects between yourself and a front airbag.
Carrying hard or sharp objects on your lap, or driving with a pipe or other
sharp object in your mouth, can result in injuries if your front airbag inflates.
Do not attach or place objects on the front airbag covers. Objects on the
covers marked SRS AIRBAG could interfere with the proper operation of the
airbags or be propelled inside the vehicle and hurt someone if the airbags
inflate.
Safety
Do not attach accessories on or near the side airbags. They can interfere
with the proper operation of the airbags or hurt someone if an airbag
inflates.
Do not attach any objects to the side windows or roof pillars. They can
interfere with the proper operation of the side curtain airbags.
Do not cover or replace the front seat-back covers. This can prevent your
side airbags from properly deploying during a side impact.
WARNING
Side curtain airbag storage
An open glove box can cause serious injury to your passenger in a crash,
even if the passenger is wearing the seat belt.
Always keep the glove box closed while driving.
n Airbag System Indicators
If a problem occurs in the airbag system, the SRS indicator comes on and a
message appears on the driver information interface.
SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) Indicator
If the indicator comes on at any
other time besides vehicle start-up
or does not come on at all, have the
system checked by a dealer as soon
as possible. If you don’t, your airbags
and seat belt tensioners may not work
properly when they are needed.

WARNING
Ignoring the SRS indicator can result in serious injury or death if the
airbag systems or tensioners do not work properly.
Have your vehicle checked by a dealer as soon as possible if the SRS
indicator alerts you to a possible problem.
Passenger Airbag Off Indicator
The indicator comes on to alert you that the front passenger’s front airbag
has been turned off.

always ride properly restrained in a
back seat.
If the front passenger‘s seat is empty,
the passenger’s front airbag will not
deploy and the indicator will come on.
To ensure the passenger is detected properly, check that:
• There is no child seat or other object pressing against the rear of the
seat-back.
• There is no rear passenger pushing or pulling on the back of the front
passenger’s seat.
• The front seat or seat-back is not forced back against an object on the
seat or floor behind it.
• There is no object placed under or beside the front passenger’s seat.
• The occupant is sitting in an upright position and the seat back is not
excessively reclined.
• The occupant is not leaning against the door or center console.
• The occupant’s feet are placed on the floor in front of them.
• There are no objects hanging from the front passenger’s seat.
• Only small, lightweight objects are in the seat-back pocket.
The passenger airbag off indicator may come on and go off repeatedly if the
total weight on the seat is near the airbag cutoff threshold.
Have your vehicle checked by a dealer as soon as possible if:
• All of the above conditions exist and the indicator comes on with an adult
riding there.
• The seat is empty and the indicator is off.
Do not allow an adult passenger to ride in the front seat when the indicator
is on.

n Airbag Care
You do not need to and should not perform any maintenance on or replace
any airbag system components yourself. However, you should have your
vehicle inspected by a dealer in the following situations:
When the airbags have deployed
If an airbag has inflated, the control unit and other related parts must
be replaced. Similarly, once an automatic seat belt tensioner has been
activated, it must be replaced.
When the vehicle has been in a moderate-to-severe collision
Even if the airbags did not inflate, have your dealer inspect the following: the
driver’s seat position sensor, weight sensors in the passenger’s seat, front
seat belt tensioners, and each seat belt that was worn during the crash.
Do not remove or modify a front seat without first consulting a dealer
This would likely disable the driver’s seat position sensor or the weight
sensors in the passenger’s seat. If it is necessary to remove or modify a front
seat to accommodate a person with disabilities, contact a Honda dealer. For
U.S. vehicles, call Honda Automobile Customer Service at (800)
999-1009.
Child Safety
Each year, many children are injured or killed in vehicle crashes because they
are either unrestrained or not properly restrained. In fact, vehicle collisions are
the number one cause of death for children ages 12 and under.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommend that all
children ages 12 and under be properly restrained in a rear seat. Some states
have laws restricting where children
Safety
may ride.
To reduce the number of child deaths and injuries, every American state
require that infants and children be properly restrained when they ride in a
vehicle.
n Protecting Child Passengers
• An inflating front or side airbag can injure or kill a child sitting in the front
seat.
• A child in the front seat is more likely to interfere with the driver’s ability
to safely control the vehicle.
• Statistics show that children of all sizes and ages are safer when they are
properly restrained in a rear seat.
• Any child who is too small to wear a seat belt correctly must be
restrained in an approved child seat that is properly secured to the
vehicle using either the lap belt portion of the lap/shoulder belt or the
lower anchors of the LATCH system.
• Never hold a child on your lap because it is impossible to protect them in
the event of a collision.
• Never put a seat belt over yourself and a child. During a crash, the belt
would likely press deep into the child and cause serious or fatal injuries.
• Never let two children use the same seat belt. Both children could be very
seriously injured in a crash.
• Do not allow children to operate the doors, windows, or seat adjustments.
• Do not leave children in the vehicle unattended, especially in hot weather
when the inside of the vehicle can get hot enough to kill them. They could
also activate vehicle controls, causing it to move unexpectedly.
WARNING
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 a child
seat. A larger child should be properly restrained with a seat belt, using a
booster seat if necessary.
WARNING
Allowing a child to play with a seat belt or wrap one around their neck can
result in serious injury or death.
Instruct children not to play with any seat belt and make sure any unused
seat belt a child can reach is buckled, fully retracted, and locked.
Safety
n Protecting Infants
An infant must be properly restrained in a rear-facing, reclining child seat
until the infant reaches the seat manufacturer’s weight or height limit for the
seat, and the infant is at least one year old. Many experts recommend use
of a rear-facing seat for a child up to two years old if the child’s height and
weight are appropriate for a rear-facing seat.
Child seats must be placed and
secured in a rear seating position.
Rear-facing child seats should never
be installed in a forward-facing
position.
When properly installed, a rear-facing
child seat may prevent the driver or
a front passenger from moving their
seat all the way back and/or from
locking their seat-back in the desired
position.
If this occurs, we recommend that you install the child seat directly behind
the front passenger’s seat, move the seat as far forward as needed, and
leave it unoccupied. Or you may wish to get a smaller rear-facing child
seat.
WARNING
Placing a rear-facing child seat in the front seat can result in serious
injury or death during a crash.
Always place a rear-facing child seat in the rear seat, not the front.
n Protecting Smaller Children
If a child is at least one year old and within the weight range indicated by
the child seat manufacturer, the child should be properly restrained in a
firmly secured forward-facing child seat.
We strongly recommend placing a
forward-facing child seat in a rear
seating position.
Placing a forward-facing child seat
in the front seat can be hazardous,
even if the advanced front airbags
automatically turn the passenger’s
front airbag off. A rear seat is the
safest place for a child.
Safety
WARNING
Placing a forward-facing child seat in the front seat can result in serious
injury or death if the front airbag inflates.
If you must place a forward-facing child seat in front, move the vehicle
seat as far back as possible and properly restrain the child.
n Selecting a Child Seat
Most child seats are LATCH-compatible (Lower Anchors and Tethers for
CHildren). Some have a rigid-type connector, while others have a flexibletype connector. Both are equally easy to use. Some existing and previously
owned child seats can only be installed using the seat belt. Whichever type
you choose, follow the child seat manufacturer’s use and care instructions,
as well as the instructions in this manual. Proper installation is key to
maximizing your child’s safety.
In seating positions and vehicles not equipped with LATCH, a LATCHcompatible child seat can be installed using the seat belt and a top tether
for added security. This is because all child seats are required to be
designed so that they can be secured with a lap belt or the lap part of a lap/
shoulder belt. In addition, the child seat manufacturer may advise that a
seat belt be used to attach a LATCH-compatible seat once a child reaches
a specified weight. Please read the child seat owner’s manual for proper
installation instructions.
Important considerations when selecting a child seat
Make sure the child seat meets the following three requirements:
• The child seat is the correct type and size for the child.
• The child seat is the correct type for the seating position.
• The child seat is compliant with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard
213 or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213.
n Installing a LATCH-Compatible Child Seat
A LATCH-compatible child seat can be installed in each of the second- and
third-row seats except for the third-row center. A child seat is attached to
the lower anchors with either the rigid or flexible type of connectors.

meets the booster seat manufacturer’s recommendations.
Some U.S. states require children to use a booster seat until they reach a
given age or weight (e.g., 6 years or 60 lbs). Be sure to check current laws
in the state or province/territory where you intend to drive.
