how a vehicle’s systems performed. The main purpose of an EDR is to record, in certain crash or near crash-like situations, such as an air bag deployment or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding

The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle dynamics and safety systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less. The EDR in this vehicle is designed to record such data as: • How various systems in your vehicle were operating; • Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/ fastened; • How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal; and, • How fast the vehicle was traveling.

These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which crashes and injuries occur. NOTE: EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs; no data are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data (e.g., name, gender, age, and crash location) are recorded. However, other parties, such as law enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally identifying data routinely acquired during a crash investigation.

To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties such as law enforcement that have the special equipment can read the information if they have access to the vehicle or the EDR.

The data belong to the vehicle owner and may not be accessed by anyone else except as legally required or with the permission of the vehicle owner.

SAFETY

SAFETY INFORMATION

Your safety—and the safety of others—is very important, and operating this vehicle safely is an important responsibility. While we strive to help you make informed decisions about safety, it is not practical or possible to warn you about all the hazards associated with operating or maintaining your vehicle. Therefore, you must use your own good judgment.

Important Safety Information

This guide explains many of your vehicle’s safety features and how to use them. Please read this information carefully. Following the instructions below will also help to keep you and your passengers safe.

Important Safety Precautions

• Always wear your seat belt.

• Secure all children in the proper restraint system.

• Be aware of airbag hazards.

• Don’t drink and drive.

• Pay appropriate attention to the task of driving safely.

• Control your speed.

• Keep your vehicle in safe condition.

Engaging in cell phone conversation or other activities that keep you from paying close attention to the road, other vehicles, and pedestrians could lead to a crash. Remember, situations can change quickly, and only you can decide when it is safe to divert some attention away from driving.

Important Handling Information

Your vehicle has a higher ground clearance than a passenger vehicle designed for use only on pavement. Higher ground clearance has many advantages for off highway driving. It allows you to travel over bumps, obstacles, and rough terrain. It also provides good visibility so you can anticipate problems earlier.

These advantages come at some cost. Because your vehicle is taller and rides higher off the ground, it has a higher center of gravity, making it more susceptible to tipping or rollover if you make abrupt turns. Utility vehicles have a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles. In a rollover crash, an unbelted person is significantly more likely to die than a person wearing a seat belt. As a reminder, make sure you and your passengers always wear seat belts.

| 3

SAFETY WARNING

Improperly operating this vehicle on or off pavement can cause a crash or rollover in which you and your passengers can be seriously injured or killed.

• Follow all instructions and guidelines in this guide.

• Keep your speed low, and don’t drive faster than conditions permit.

Safety Messages

When you see the following messages throughout this guide, pay close attention.

You WILL be KILLED or SERIOUSLY HURT if you don’t follow instructions.

You CAN be KILLED or SERIOUSLY HURT if you don’t follow instructions. You CAN be HURT if you don’t follow instructions.

This information is intended to help you avoid damage to your vehicle, other property, or the environment.

Carbon Monoxide Gas

The engine exhaust from this vehicle contains carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless, and highly toxic gas. As long as you properly maintain your vehicle and follow the instructions set forth below, you will not accumulate dangerous levels of carbon monoxide gas in the vehicle interior.

Have the exhaust system inspected for leaks whenever: • The exhaust system is making an unusual noise.

• The exhaust system may have been damaged.

• The vehicle is raised for an oil change.

When you operate a vehicle with the tailgate open, airflow can pull exhaust gas into the interior and create a hazardous condition. If you must drive with the tailgate open, open all the windows and set the climate control system as shown below.

1. Select the fresh air mode.

2. Select the mode.

3. Set the fan speed to high.

4. Set the temperature control to a comfortable setting.

Adjust the climate control system in the same manner if you sit in your parked vehicle with the engine running.

4 |

SAFETY WARNING

Carbon monoxide gas is toxic. Breathing it can cause unconsciousness and even kill you.

Avoid any enclosed areas or activities that expose you to carbon monoxide.

An enclosed area such as a garage can quickly fill up with carbon monoxide gas. Do not run the engine with the garage door closed. Even when the garage door is open, drive out of the garage immediately after starting the engine.

Seat Belts

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.

Lap/Shoulder Seat Belts

All six or seven seating positions are equipped with lap/shoulder seat belts with emergency locking retractors. In normal driving, the retractor lets you move freely while keeping some tension on the belt. During a collision or sudden stop, the retractor locks to restrain your body. The front passenger’s, second-row, and third-row seat belts also have a lockable retractor for use with child seats.

The front seats are equipped with automatic seat belt tensioners to enhance safety. The tensioners automatically tighten the front seat belts during a moderate-to-severe front collision, sometimes even if the collision is not severe enough to inflate the front airbags or the driver’s knee airbag.

Proper Use of Seat Belts

Follow these guidelines for proper use: • All occupants should sit upright, well back in the seat, and remain in that position for the duration of the trip. Slouching and leaning reduces the effectiveness of the belt and can increase the chance of serious injury in a crash.

• Never place the shoulder part of a lap/shoulder seat belt under your arm or behind your back. This could cause very serious injuries in a crash.

• 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 the seat belts. Devices intended to improve comfort or reposition the shoulder part of a seat belt can reduce the protective capability and increase the chance of serious injury in a crash.

• No one should sit in a seat with an inoperative seat belt or one that does not appear to be working correctly. Using a seat belt that is not working properly may not protect the occupant in a crash. Have a dealer check the belt as soon as possible.

| 5

SAFETY WARNING

Not wearing a seat belt properly increases the chance of a serious injury or death in a crash, even though your vehicle has airbags.

Be sure you and your passengers always wear seat belts and wear them properly.

Seat Belt Inspection

Regularly check the condition of your seat belts as follows: • Pull each belt out fully, and look for frays, cuts, burns, and wear.

• Check that the latches work smoothly and the belts retract easily. If a belt does not retract easily, cleaning the belt may correct the problem. Only use a mild soap and warm water. Do not use bleach or cleaning solvents. Make sure the belt is completely dry before allowing it to retract.

Any belt that is not in good condition or working properly will not provide proper protection and should be replaced as soon as possible.

A belt that has been worn during a crash may not provide the same level of protection in a subsequent crash. Have your seat belts inspected by a dealer after any collision.

WARNING

Not checking or maintaining seat belts can result in serious injury or death if the seat belts do not work properly when needed. Check your seat belts regularly and have any problem corrected as soon as possible.

SAFETY

Fastening a Seat Belt

Adjust your seat to the proper position (see page 43), and then follow the below steps.

1. Pull the seat belt out slowly.

Pull out slowly.

Pull out slowly.

2. Insert the latch plate into the buckle, then tug on the belt to make sure the buckle is secure. Make sure that the belt is not twisted or caught on anything. The front seat belts retract automatically.

3. Position the lap part of the belt as low as possible across your hips, then pull up on the shoulder part of the belt so the lap part fits snugly. This lets your strong pelvic bones take the force of a crash and reduces the chance of internal injuries.

Latch plate Latch plate Buckle Buckle Buckle 4. If necessary, pull up on the belt again to remove any slack, then make sure that the belt rests across the center of your chest and over your shoulder. This spreads the forces of a crash over the strongest bones in your upper body.

Lap belt as low as possible as low as possible To release the belt, push the red PRESS button then guide the belt by hand until it has retracted completely.

WARNING

Improperly positioning the seat belts can cause serious injury or death in a crash.

Make sure all seat belts are properly positioned before driving.

Adjusting the Shoulder Anchor

The front seats have adjustable shoulder anchors to accommodate taller and shorter occupants.

1. Move the anchor up and down while holding the release button.

2. Position the anchor so that the belt rests across the center of your chest and over your shoulder.

WARNING

Using the seat belt with the detachable anchor unlatched increases the chance of serious injury or death in a crash.

Before using the seat belt, make sure the detachable anchor is correctly latched.

SAFETY

Airbags

Your vehicle is equipped with several types of airbags: front airbags, driver’s knee airbag, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.

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) indicates that the airbags are designed to supplement seat belts, not replace them. Seat belts are the occupant’s primary restraint system.

Driver’s Knee Airbag

The driver’s knee SRS airbag inflates with the driver’s front airbag in a moderate to-severe frontal collision to help keep the driver in the proper position and to help maximize the benefit provided by the vehicle’s other safety features.

Advanced Airbags

Your front airbags have advanced features to help reduce the likelihood of airbag related injuries to smaller occupants. The driver’s advanced front airbag system includes a seat position sensor. If the seat is too far forward, the airbag inflates with less force, regardless of the severity of the impact.

If there is a problem with the driver’s seat position sensor, the SRS indicator will come on and the airbag will inflate with full (normal) force, regardless of the driver’s seating position.

The passenger’s advanced front airbag system has weight sensors. Although Acura recommends against carrying an infant or small child in front, if the sensors detect the weight of a child (up to 65 lbs or 29 kg), the system will automatically turn off the passenger’s front airbag.

For both advanced front 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 place any cover over any part of the passenger side dashboard.

• 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.

| 9

SAFETY

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

.

Side Curtain Airbags

The side curtain airbags help protect the heads of the driver and passengers in outer seating positions during a moderate-to-severe side impact or angeled frontal impact. The side curtain airbags equipped in this vehicle are also designed to help reduce the likelihood of partial and complete ejection of vehicle occupants through side windows in crashes, particularly rollover crashes. The side curtain airbags are located in the ceiling above the side windows on both sides of the vehicle.

The side curtain airbags are designed to deploy in a rollover or moderate-to-severe side impact. If the SRS control unit senses that your vehicle is about to roll over, it immediately deploys both side curtain airbags and activates both front seat belt tensioners. If the impact is on the passenger’s side, the passenger’s side curtain airbag will inflate even if there are no occupants on that side of the vehicle.

To get the best protection from the side curtain airbags, occupants should wear their seat belts properly and sit upright and well back in their seats.

Side curtain airbag storage Deployed side curtain airbags 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 after the front airbags.

10 |

SAFETY

Important Facts About Your Airbags

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.

Do not place hard or sharp objects between yourself and a front airbag

object in your mouth, can result in injuries if your front airbag inflates.

. Carrying hard or sharp objects on your lap, or driving with a pipe or other sharp

Do not attach or place objects on the front and driver’s knee airbag covers.

Objects on the covers marked SRS AIRBAG could interfere with the proper operation of the airbags or be propelled inside the vehicle and hurt someone if the airbags inflate.

Do not attach accessories on or near the side airbags.

They can interfere with the proper operation of the airbags, or hurt someone if an airbag inflates.

Do not attach any objects to the side windows or roof pillars.

They can interfere with the proper operation of the side curtain airbags.

Do not cover or replace the front seat-back covers.

This can prevent your side airbags from properly deploying during a side impact.

WARNING

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.

Airbag System Indicators

If a problem occurs in the airbag system, the SRS indicator comes on and a message appears on the multi-information display.

SRS (Supplemental Restraint System) Indicator

If the indicator comes on at any other time besides vehicle start-up, or does not come on at all, have the system checked by a dealer as soon as possible. If you don’t, your airbags and seat belt tensioners may not work properly when they are needed.

Airbag System (SRS) Problem 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.

| 11

SAFETY Passenger Airbag Off Indicator

The indicator comes on to alert you that the front passenger’s front airbag has been turned off. This occurs when the front passenger’s weight sensors detect 65 lbs (29 kg) or less, the weight of an infant or small child on the seat.

U.S.

Canada Infants and small children should always ride properly restrained in a back seat. Objects placed on the front passenger’s seat can also cause the indicator to come on.

If the front passenger’s seat is empty, the passenger’s front airbag will not deploy and the indicator will not come on.

If the indicator comes on with no occupant or objects in the front passenger’s seat, something may be interfering with the weight sensors, such as: • An object hanging on the seat or in the seat-back pocket.

• A child seat or other object pressing against the rear of the seat-back.

• A rear passenger pushing or pulling on the back of the front passenger’s seat.

• The front seat or seat-back is forced against an object on the seat or floor behind it.

• An object placed under the front passenger’s seat.

If none of these conditions exist, have your vehicle checked by a dealer as soon as possible.

The passenger airbag off indicator may go on and off repeatedly if the total weight on the seat is near the airbag cutoff threshold.

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 or affect the driver’s seat position sensor or the weight sensors in the passenger’s seat. If it is necessary to remove or modify a front seat to accommodate a person with disabilities, contact an Acura dealer. For U.S. vehicles, call Acura Client Relations at (800) 382-2238. For Canadian vehicles, call Acura Client Services at (888) 922-8729.

SAFETY

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 of children ages 12 and under.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Transport Canada recommend that all children ages 12 and under be properly restrained in a rear seat. Some states or provinces/territories have laws restricting where children may ride.

To reduce the number of child deaths and injuries, every state, Canadian province, and territory requires that infants and children be properly restrained when they ride in a vehicle.

Protecting Child Passengers—Important Considerations

• An inflating front or side airbag can injure or kill a child sitting in the front passenger’s seat.

• A child in the front passenger’s 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.

| 15

SAFETY 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.

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, 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.

16 |

SAFETY

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 until they exceed the weight and height limitations for the 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 with advanced front airbags that automatically turn the passenger’s front airbag off. A rear seat is the safest place for a child.

WARNING

Placing a forward-facing child seat in the front seat can result in serious injury or death if the front airbag inflates.

If you must place a forward-facing child seat in front, move the vehicle seat as far back as possible, and properly restrain the child.

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 flexible-type connector. Both are equally easy to use. Some existing and previously owned child seats can only be installed using the seat belt. Whichever type you choose, follow the child seat manufacturer’s use and care instructions as well as the instructions in this manual. Proper installation is key to maximizing your child’s safety.

In seating positions and vehicles not equipped with LATCH, a LATCH-compatible child seat can be installed using the seat belt and a top tether for added security. This is because all child seats are required to be designed so that they can be secured with a lap belt or the lap part of a lap/shoulder belt. In addition, the child seat manufacturer may advise that a seat belt be used to attach a 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. | 17

SAFETY

Installing a LATCH-Compatible Child Seat

A LATCH-compatible child seat can be installed in either of the two outer-rear seats. A child seat is attached to the lower anchors with either the rigid or flexible type of connectors.

Installing a Child Seat with a Lap/Shoulder Seat Belt

1. Place the child seat on the vehicle seat.

2. Route the seat belt through the child seat according to the seat manufacturer’s instructions, and insert the latch plate into the buckle. Insert the latch plate fully until it clicks.

3. Slowly pull the shoulder part of the belt all the way out until it stops. This activates the lockable retractor.

4. Let the seat belt completely wind up into the retractor, then try to pull it out to make sure the retractor is locked. If you are able to pull the shoulder belt out, the lockable retractor is not activated. Pull the seat belt all the way out, and repeat steps 3 – 4.

5. Grab the shoulder part of the seat belt near the buckle, and pull up to remove any slack from the lap part of the belt. When doing this, place your weight on the child seat and push it into the vehicle seat.

6. Make sure the child seat is firmly secured by rocking it forward and back and side to side; little movement should be felt.

7. Make sure any unused seat belt that a child can reach is buckled, the lockable retractor is activated, and the belt is fully retracted and locked.

To deactivate a lockable retractor, release the buckle and allow the seat belt to wind up all the way.

SAFETY

Protecting Larger Children

When a child is too big for a child seat, secure the child in a rear seat using the lap/shoulder seat belt.

Have the child sit upright and all the way back, then ensure the following: • The child’s knees bend comfortably over the edge of the seat.

• The shoulder belt crosses between the child’s neck and arm.

• The lap part of the seat belt is as low as possible, touching the child’s thighs.

• The child can stay seated for the whole trip.

If a lap/shoulder belt cannot be used properly, position the child in a booster seat in a rear seating position. For the child’s safety, check that the child meets the booster seat manufacturer’s recommendations.

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

WARNING

Allowing a child age 12 or under to sit in the front can result in injury or death if the passenger’s front airbag inflates.

If a larger child must ride in front, move the vehicle seat as far to the rear as possible, have the child sit up properly and wear the seat belt properly, using a booster seat if needed.

DRIVING

DRIVING

Learn about preparation for driving, as well as other features.

Before Driving

Check the following items before you begin driving.

Exterior Checks

• Make sure there are no obstructions on the windows, door mirrors, exterior lights, or other parts of the vehicle.

• Remove any frost, snow, or ice.

• Make sure the hood is securely closed.

• Heat from the engine and exhaust can ignite flammable materials left under the hood, causing a fire. If you’ve parked your vehicle for an extended period, inspect and remove any debris that may have collected, such as dried grass and leaves that have fallen or have been carried in for use as a nest by a small animal. Also check under the hood for leftover flammable materials after you or someone else has performed maintenance on your vehicle. • Make sure the tires are in good condition.

• Make sure there are no people or objects behind or around the vehicle.

NOTICE

If the doors are frozen shut, use warm water around the door edges to melt any ice. Do not try to force them open, as this can damage the rubber trim around the doors. When done, wipe dry to avoid further freezing.

Interior Checks

• Store or secure all items on board properly.

• Do not pile items higher than the seat height.

• Do not place anything in the front seat footwells. Make sure to secure the floor mats.

• If you have any animals on board, do not let them move freely in the vehicle.

• Securely close and lock all doors and the tailgate.

• Adjust your seating position, mirrors, and steering wheel properly.

• Make sure items placed on the floor behind the front seats cannot roll under the seats.

• Everyone in the vehicle must fasten their seat belt.

• Make sure that the indicators in the instrument panel come on when you start the vehicle, and go off soon after.

DRIVING

Driving Guidelines for Your Utility Vehicle

Utility vehicles have a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles. To prevent rollovers or loss of control: • Take corners at slower speeds than you would with a passenger vehicle.

• Avoid sharp turns and abrupt maneuvers whenever possible.

• Do not modify your vehicle in any way that raises its center of gravity.

• Never carry more than 165 lbs (75 kg) of cargo on the roof rack (Acura accessory).

In addition: • During the first 600 miles (1,000 km) of operation, avoid sudden acceleration or full throttle operation so as not to damage the engine or powertrain.

• Avoid hard braking for the first 200 miles (300 km). You should also follow this when the brake pads are replaced.

WARNING

Improperly operating this vehicle on or off pavement can cause crash or rollover in which you and your passengers can be seriously injured or killed.

Follow all instructions and guidelines in this guide.

Keep your speed low, and don’t drive faster than conditions permit.

WARNING

Improper accessories or modifications can affect your vehicle’s handling, stability, and performance, and cause a crash in which you can be seriously hurt or killed.

Follow all instructions in the vehicle owner’s manual regarding accessories and modifications.

90 |

DRIVING

Maximum Load Limit

Carrying too much cargo or improperly storing it can affect your vehicle’s handling, stability, stopping distance, and tires, and make it unsafe. See the Tire and Loading Information label on the driver’s doorjamb.

Maximum load for a vehicle with with second-row bench seats: 1,173 lbs (532 kg). Maximum load for a vehicle with with second-rowcaptain seats: 1,005 lbs (456 kg).

Label Example

This figure includes the total weight of all occupants, cargo, and accessories, and the tongue load if you are towing a trailer. Below are the steps for determining the correct load limit: 1. Locate the statement “The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX kg or XXX lbs.” on your vehicle’s placard.

2. Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers that will be riding in your vehicle.

3. Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers from XXX kg or XXX lbs.

4. The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and luggage load capacity. For example, if the “XXX” amount equals 1,400 lbs. and there will be five 150 lb. passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 650 lbs. (1,400 - 750 (5 x 150) = 650 lbs.) 5. Determine the combined weight of luggage and cargo being loaded on the vehicle. That weight may not safely exceed the available cargo and luggage load capacity calculated in step 4.

6. If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will be transferred to your vehicle. Consult the Owner’s Manual on the Owner Information CD or at

owners.acura.com

to determine how this reduces the available cargo and luggage load capacity of your vehicle.

In addition, the total weight of the vehicle, all occupants, accessories, cargo, and trailer tongue load must not exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) or the Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR). Both are on a label on the driver’s doorjamb.

| 91

DRIVING

Load Limits Example Example1 Max load 1,173 lbs (532 kg) Passenger weight 150 lbs x 2 = 300 lbs (68 kg x 2 = 136 kg) Cargo weight 873 lbs (396 kg) Example2 Max load 1,173 lbs (532 kg) Passenger weight 150 lbs x 5 = 750 lbs (68 kg x 5 = 340 kg) Cargo weight 423 lbs (192 kg)

WARNING

Overloading or improper loading can affect handling and stability and cause a crash in which you can be hurt or killed.

Follow all load limits and other loading guidelines in this manual.

The headlight aim on your vehicle was set by the factory, and does not need to be adjusted. However, if you regularly carry heavy items in the cargo area or pull a trailer, have the aiming readjusted at your dealer or by a qualified technician.

DRIVING

Towing a Trailer

Your vehicle can tow a trailer if you carefully observe the load limits, use the proper equipment, and follow the towing guidelines. An accessory front towing grille is required whenever a trailer is towed. You can get the accessory grille at a dealer. See the Owner’s Manual on the Owner Information CD or visit

owners.acura.com

for more information.

Towing Load Limits

Total trailer weight

Do not exceed the maximum allowable weight of the trailer, cargo, and everything in or on it shown in the table below. Towing loads in excess of this can seriously affect vehicle handling and performance and can damage the engine and drivetrain.

Total load Number of occupants 2 3 4 5 6 7 AWD models with ATF cooler 5,000 lbs (2,268 kg) 4,750 lbs (2,155 kg) 4,500 lbs (2,041 kg) 4,250 lbs (1,928 kg) 4,000 lbs (1,814 kg) AWD models without ATF cooler 3,500 lbs (1,588 kg) 3,250 lbs (1,474 kg) 3,000 lbs (1,361 kg) 2,750 lbs (1,247 kg) 2,500 lbs (1,134 kg) Towing not recommended 2WD models 3,500 lbs (1,588 kg) 3,250 lbs (1,474 kg) 3,000 lbs (1,361 kg) 2,750 lbs (1,247 kg) 2,500 lbs (1,134 kg) Each weight limit is calculated based on the following conditions: • Occupants fill seats from the front of the vehicle to the back.

• Each occupant weights 150 lbs (68 kg).

• Each occupant has 15 lbs (7 kg) of cargo in the cargo area.

Any additional weight, cargo or accessories reduce the maximum trailer weight and maximum tongue load.

WARNING

Exceeding any load limit or improperly loading your vehicle and trailer can cause a crash in which you can be seriously hurt or killed.

Check the loading of your vehicle and trailer carefully before starting to drive.

| 93

DRIVING Tongue load

The weight of the tongue with a fully loaded trailer on the hitch should be approximately: Boat trailers: 5-15% of the total trailer weight.

Other trailers: 10-15% of total trailer weight.

Number of occupants 2 3 4 5 6 7 AWD models 500 lbs (227 kg) 475 lbs (215 kg) 2WD models 350 lbs (159 kg) 325 lbs (147 kg) 380 lbs (172 kg) 290 lbs (132 kg) 300 lbs (136 kg) 260 lbs (118 kg) 165 lbs (75 kg) 140 lbs (63 kg) Towing not recommended

Estimate tongue load

Excessive tongue load reduces front tire traction and steering control. Too little tongue load can make the trailer unstable and cause it to sway.

You can estimate the tongue load by measuring the trailer hitch height from the ground in the following steps: 1. Park the vehicle on level ground.

2. Measure the distance between the ground and the bottom of the trailer hitch.

3. Connect the fully loaded trailer to the hitch.

4. Measure the distance between the ground and the bottom of the trailer hitch again.

5. Subtract the second measurement from the first measurement, then refer to the following table.

If the difference is 1 inches (2.5 cm) 1 1/2 inches (3.8 cm) 2 inches (5.1 cm) 2 3/8 inches (6.0 cm) 2 5/8 inches (6.7 cm) AWD models 450 lbs (205 kg) 500 lbs (227 kg) 2WD models 150 lbs (68 kg) 250 lbs (114 kg) 350 lbs (159 kg) — — If the difference becomes more than indicated in the table, distribute the load or remove cargo as needed.

DRIVING

Pre-Tow Checklist

When preparing to tow, and before driving away, be sure to check the following: • Avoid towing a trailer during your vehicle’s first 600 miles (1,000 km).

• The vehicle and trailer have been properly serviced and are in good condition. Lights and brakes work properly, and the tires are properly inflated.

• All weights and loads are within limits. Never exceed the gross weight ratings.

• When towing more than 3,500 lbs (1,590 kg), use of gasoline with an octane rating of 91 or higher is recommended.

• Check if all loads are within limits at a public scale (see page 95). If a public scale is not available, add the estimated weight of your cargo load to the weight of the trailer (as quoted by the manufacturer) and the tongue load.

• The hitch, safety chains, and any other attachments are secure.

• All items in or on the trailer are properly secured and cannot shift while you drive.

WARNING

Exceeding any load limit or improperly loading your vehicle and trailer can cause a crash in which you can be seriously hurt or killed.

Turn off all accessories and turn on the hazard warning lights.

2.

If no steam or spray is present:

Keep the engine running and open the hood (see page 140).

Reserve tank MAX MIN

If steam or spray is present:

Turn off the engine and wait until it subsides. Then, open the hood.

3. Check that the cooling fan is operating. If it is not, immediately stop the engine. Otherwise, idle the engine until the MID message goes off. 4. Once the engine has cooled down, inspect the coolant level and check the cooling system components for leaks. If the coolant level in the reserve tank is low, add coolant until it reaches the MAX mark. If there is no coolant in the reserve tank, make sure the radiator is cool, then cover the radiator cap with a heavy cloth and open the cap. If necessary, add coolant up to the base of the filler neck, and put the cap back on. Then, fill the reserve tank to the MAX mark.

Once the engine has cooled sufficiently, restart it and check the temperature gauge. If the temperature needle has gone down, resume driving. If it has not gone down, contact a dealer for repairs.

WARNING

Steam and spray from an overheated engine can seriously scald you.

Do not open the hood if steam is coming out.

WARNING

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.

NOTICE

Continuing to drive with the temperature gauge needle at the H mark may damage the engine.

If your vehicle’s tire pressure becomes significantly low, the low tire pressure indicator appears with a message in the multi-information display. Use the right selector wheel on the steering wheel to scroll to the tire pressure monitor to see pressure readings for each tire (see page 30). The specific tire with low pressure is displayed.

What to Do

Stop your vehicle in a safe place. Adjust the tire pressure to the level specified on a label on the driver’s doorjamb.

Tire Fill Assist

Your vehicle gives you visual and audible alerts to help you adjust the tire pressure to its appropriate level when the vehicle is on.

While inflating:

The system beeps and the exterior lights flash once every 5 seconds.

When the correct pressure is reached:

The system beeps and the exterior lights flash continuously for 5 seconds. Stop filling the tire.

If you overinflate:

The system beeps and the exterior lights flash twice every 3 seconds.

NOTICE

Driving on an extremely underinflated tire can cause it to overheat. An overheated tire can fail. Always inflate your tires to the specified pressure.

124 |

HANDLING THE UNEXPECTED

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) - Required Federal Explanation

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label.

(If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.) As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure.

Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists.

When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly.

Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function properly.

MAINTENANCE

Tire Information

To safely operate your vehicle, your tires must be of the proper type and size, in good condition with adequate tread, and properly inflated.

Inflation Guidelines

• Properly inflated tires provide the best combination of handling, tread life, and comfort. Refer to the driver’s doorjamb label or the specifications (see page 154) for the specified pressure.

• Underinflated tires wear unevenly, adversely affect handling and fuel economy, and are more likely to fail from overheating.

• Overinflated tires make your vehicle ride harshly, are more prone to road hazards, and wear unevenly.

• Every day before you drive, look at each of the tires. If one looks lower than the others, check the pressure with a tire gauge.

• Measure the air pressure when tires are cold. This means the vehicle has been parked for at least 3 hours, or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km). If necessary, add or release air until the specified pressure is reached. If checked when hot, tire pressure can be as much as 4-6 psi (30-40 kPa, 0.3-0.5 kgf/cm 2 ) higher than checked when cold.

• At least once a month or before long trips, use a gauge to measure the pressure in all tires, including the spare. Even tires in good condition can lose 1-2 psi (10-20 kPa, 0.1-0.2 kgf/cm 2 ) per month.

Inspection Guidelines

Every time you inflate the tires, check for the following: • Any damage to tires, including bumps, bulges, cuts, splits, or cracks in the side or tread. Remove any foreign objects and inspect for air leaks. Replace tires if you see fabric or cord. • Uneven or excessive tread wear. Have a dealer check the wheel alignment.

• Cracks or other damage around the valve stems.

Wear Indicators

The groove where the wear indicator is located is 1/16 inch (1.6 mm) shallower than elsewhere on the tire. If the tread has worn so low that the indicator is exposed, replace the tire.

Worn out tires have poor traction on wet roads.

Example of a wear indicator mark | 147

MAINTENANCE WARNING

Using tires that are excessively worn or improperly inflated can cause a crash in which you can be seriously hurt or killed.

Follow all instructions in this owner’s guide regarding tire inflation and maintenance.

Tire and Loading Information Label

The label attached to the driver’s doorjamb provides necessary tire and loading information.

Original tire sizes Number of people your vehicle can carry Proper cold tire pressure Total weight your vehicle can carry (do not exceed)

Tire and Wheel Replacement

Replace your tires with radials of the same size, load range, speed rating, and maximum cold tire pressure rating (as shown on the tire’s sidewall). Using tires of a different size or construction can cause certain vehicle systems to work incorrectly. It is best to replace all four tires at the same time. If that isn’t possible, replace the front or rear tires in pairs.

If you change or replace a wheel, make sure that the wheel’s specifications match those of the original wheels. Only use TPMS-specified wheels approved for your vehicle.

WARNING

Installing improper tires on your vehicle can affect handling and stability.

This can cause a crash in which you can be seriously hurt or killed.

Always use the size and type of tires recommended in the Owner’s Manual.

MAINTENANCE

Tire Service Life

The life of your tires is dependent on many factors, including driving habits, road conditions, vehicle loading, inflation pressure, maintenance history, speed, and environmental conditions (even when the tires are not in use).

In addition to regular inspections and inflation pressure maintenance, it is recommended that you have annual inspections performed once the tires reach five years old. All tires, including the spare, should be removed from service after 10 years from the date of manufacture, regardless of their condition or state of wear.

Winter Tires

If driving on snowy or frozen roads, mount all season tires marked “M+S”, snow tires, or tire chains; reduce speed; and maintain sufficient distance between vehicles when driving. For winter tires, select the size and load ranges that are the same as the original tires, and mount them to all four wheels.

Tire Chains

Install tire chains on the front tires only. Because your vehicle has limited tire clearance, we strongly recommend using the following chains:

Cable type: SCC Cable Chain ZT735

. Mount chains as tightly as you can, and make sure that they do not touch the brake lines or suspension.

NOTICE

Traction devices that are the wrong size or improperly installed can damage your vehicle’s brake lines, suspension, body, and wheels. Stop driving if they are hitting any part of the vehicle.

WARNING

Using the wrong chains, or not properly installing chains, can damage the brake lines and cause a crash in which you can be seriously injured or killed.

Follow all instructions in this guide regarding the selection and use of tire chains.

MAINTENANCE

Tire Labeling

The tires that came on your vehicle have a number of markings. Those you should be aware of are described below.

Tire size Tire Identification Number (TIN) Maximum tire load Maximum tire pressure Tire size

Here is an example of what each marking means: 215/70R16 100S • 215: tire width in millimeters • 70: aspect ratio (tire section height as a percentage of its width) • R: tire construction code (radial) • 16: rim diameter in inches • 100: load index (code indicating maximum load tire can carry) • S: speed symbol (code indicating maximum speed rating)

Tire Identification Number (TIN)

The tire identification number (TIN) is a group of numbers and letters that look like the example shown. TIN is located on the sidewall of the tire.

DOT B97R FW6X 2209

DOT: This indicates that the tire meets all requirements of the U.S. Department of Transportation.

B97R: Manufacturer’s identification mark.

FW6X: Tire type code.

22 09: Date of manufacture.

Year Week

Glossary of Tire Terminology

Cold Tire Pressure – The tire air pressure when the vehicle has been parked for at least three hours or driven less than 1 mile (1.6 km).

Load Rating – The maximum load that a tire is rated to carry for a given inflation pressure.

Maximum Inflation Pressure – The maximum tire air pressure that the tire can hold.

Maximum Load Rating – The load rating for a tire at the maximum permissible inflation pressure for that tire.

Recommended Inflation Pressure – The cold tire inflation pressure recommended by the manufacturer.

Treadwear Indicators (TWI) – The projections within the principal grooves designed to give a visual indication of the degrees of wear of the tread.

MAINTENANCE

DOT Tire Quality Grading

The tires on your vehicle meet all U.S. Federal Safety Requirements. All tires are also graded for treadwear, traction, and temperature performance according to Department of Transportation (DOT) standards. The following explains these gradings.

Uniform Tire Quality Grading

Quality grades can be found where applicable on the tire sidewall between tread shoulder and maximum section width.

For example:

Treadwear 200 Traction AA Temperature A

All passenger car tires must conform to Federal Safety Requirements in addition to these grades.

Treadwear

The treadwear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and one-half (1 1/2) times as well on the government course as a tire graded 100. The relative performance of tires depends upon the actual conditions of their use, however, and may depart significantly from the norm due to variations in driving habits, service practices, and differences in road characteristics and climate.

Traction

The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B, and C. Those grades represent the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement as measured under controlled conditions on specified government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C may have poor traction performance.

WARNING

: The traction grade assigned to this tire is based on straight-ahead braking traction tests, and does not include acceleration, cornering, hydroplaning, or peak traction characteristics.

| 151

MAINTENANCE

Temperature

The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tire’s resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel. Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to degenerate and reduce tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to sudden tire failure. The grade C corresponds to a level of performance which all passenger car tires must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 109. Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel than the minimum required by law.

WARNING:

The temperature grade for this tire is established for a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded. Excessive speed, underinflation, or excessive loading, either separately or in combination, can cause heat buildup and possible tire failure.

MAINTENANCE

Testing of Readiness Codes

Your vehicle has readiness codes as part of the onboard self-diagnostic system. Some states use these codes for testing to verify your vehicle’s emissions components are working properly. The codes may not be read if you go through the testing just after the battery has gone dead or been disconnected.

To check if they are set, set the power mode to ON without starting the engine. The malfunction indicator lamp will come on for several seconds. If it goes off, the readiness codes are set. If it blinks five times, the readiness codes are not set.

If you are required to have your vehicle emissions tested before the readiness codes are set, prepare the vehicle for retesting by doing the following: 1. Fill the gas tank to approximately 3/4 full.

2. Park the vehicle and leave the engine off for 6 hours or more.

3. Make sure the ambient temperature is between 40°F and 95°F (4°C and 35°C).

4. Start the engine without touching the accelerator pedal, and let it idle for 20 seconds.

5. Keep the vehicle in Park (P). Increase the engine speed to 2,000 rpm, and hold it there for about 3 minutes.

6. Let the engine idle with your foot off the accelerator for 20 seconds.

7. Select a nearby, lightly traveled major highway where you can maintain a speed of 50 to 60 mph (80 to 97 km/h) for at least 20 minutes. Drive on the highway with the vehicle in Drive. Do not use cruise control. When traffic allows, drive for 90 seconds without using the accelerator pedal. (Vehicle speed may vary slightly; this is OK.) If you cannot do this for a continuous 90 seconds because of traffic conditions, drive for at least 30 seconds, then repeat two more times (for a total of 90 seconds).

8. Drive in city or suburban traffic for at least 10 minutes. When traffic conditions allow, let the vehicle coast for several seconds without using the accelerator pedal or the brake pedal.

9. Park the vehicle and leave the engine off for 30 minutes.

The readiness codes are erased when the battery is disconnected, and set again only after several days of driving under a variety of conditions.

If an emissions testing facility determines that the readiness codes are not set, you may be requested to return at a later date to complete the test, or see your dealer.
