When Stopped

In extremely cold temperatures, the parking brake 
may freeze up if applied. If such temperatures are 
expected, do not apply the parking brake but, if 
parking on a slope, either turn the front wheels so 
they will contact the curb if the vehicle rolls down the 
slope or block the wheels to keep the vehicle from 
moving. If you do not take either precaution, the 
vehicle may roll unexpectedly, leading to a crash.

Your vehicle is moving at 3 mph (5 km/h) or 
lower.

When a vehicle is detected approaching from a rear corner, Cross Traffic Monitor 
alerts you with a buzzer and a displayed warning.

The system will not detect a vehicle that approaches from directly behind your 
vehicle, nor will it provide alerts about a detected vehicle when it moves directly 
behind your vehicle.

The system does not provide alerts for a vehicle that is moving away from your 
vehicle, and it may alert for pedestrians, bicycles, or stationary objects.

How the System Works

1

Cross Traffic Monitor

Cross traffic monitor may not detect or may delay 
alerting an approaching vehicle, or may alert without 
an approaching vehicle under the following 
conditions:

An obstacle, such as another vehicle and a wall, 
near your vehicle’s rear bumper, is blocking the 
radar sensor’s scope.

Your vehicle is moving at the speed of about 3 mph 
(5 km/h) or higher.

A vehicle is approaching at the speed other than 
between about 6 mph (10 km/h) and 16 mph (25 
km/h).

The system picks up external interference such as 
other radar sensors from another vehicle or strong 
radio wave transmitted from a facility nearby.

Either corner of the rear bumper is covered with 
snow, ice, mud or dirt.

When there is bad weather.

Your vehicle is on an incline.

Your vehicle is tilted due to a heavy load in the rear.

Your vehicle is reversing towards a wall, a pole, a 
vehicle, and so on.

The rear bumper or the sensors have been improperly 
repaired or the rear bumper has been deformed. 
Have your vehicle checked by a dealer.

For proper operation, always keep the rear bumper 
corner area clean.
Do not cover the rear bumper corner area with labels 
or stickers of any kind.

About Your Multi-View Rear Camera

The rear camera view is restricted. You cannot see 
the corner ends of the bumper or what is underneath 
the bumper. Its unique lens also makes objects 
appear closer or farther than they actually are.

Visually confirm that it is safe to drive before backing 
up. Certain conditions (such as weather, lighting, and 
high temperatures) may also restrict the rear view. Do 
not rely on the rearview display which does not give 
you all information about conditions at the back of 
your vehicle.

If the camera lens is covered with dirt or moisture, 
use a soft, moist cloth to keep the lens clean and free 
of debris.

Fuel Information

Fuel recommendation

Use of a lower octane gasoline can cause a persistent, heavy metallic knocking noise 
that can lead to engine damage.

Top tier detergent gasoline

Because the level of detergency and additives in gasoline vary in the market, Honda 
endorses the use of “TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline” where available to help 
maintain the performance and reliability of your vehicle. TOP TIER Detergent 
Gasoline meets a new gasoline standard jointly established by leading automotive 
manufacturers to meet the needs of today’s advanced engines.

Qualifying gasoline retailers will, in most cases, identify their gasoline as having met 
“TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline” standards at the retail location. This fuel is 
guaranteed to contain the proper level of detergent additives and be free of metallic 
additives. The proper level of detergent additives, and absence of harmful metallic 
additives in gasoline, help avoid buildup of deposits in your engine and emission 
control system. 

For further important fuel-related information for your vehicle, or on information on 
gasoline that does not contain MMT, visit 

www.hondacars.com.

 For more 

information on top tier gasoline, visit

Fuel Information

NOTICE

We recommend quality gasoline containing 
detergent additives that help prevent fuel system and 
engine deposits. In addition, in order to maintain 
good performance, fuel economy, and emissions 
control, we strongly recommend the use of gasoline 
that does NOT contain harmful manganese-based 
fuel additives such as MMT, if such gasoline is 
available.

Use of gasoline with these additives may adversely 
affect performance, and cause the malfunction 
indicator lamp on your instrument panel to come on. 
If this happens, contact a dealer for service.
Some gasoline today is blended with oxygenates such 
as ethanol. Your vehicle is designed to operate on 
oxygenated gasoline containing up to 15% ethanol 
by volume. Do not use gasoline containing methanol. 
If you notice any undesirable operating symptoms, try 
another service station or switch to another brand of 
gasoline.

5.

When the message changes to 

Ready

, the 

fuel fill door automatically opens.

u

You can now unscrew the fuel cap and 
start refueling.

6.

Remove the fuel fill cap slowly. If you hear a 
release of air, wait until this stops, then turn 
the knob slowly to open the fuel fill cap.

1

How to Refuel

This vehicle has a pressurized fuel system.
When the fuel vapor pressure inside the fuel tank is 
high, it takes about 10 seconds for the vehicle to vent 
the fuel tank. Once the pressure is vented, the driver 
information interface changes from 

Please Wait

 to 

Ready

.

If the filler nozzle keeps turning off when the tank is 
not full, there may be a problem with the pump’s fuel 
vapor recovery system. Try filling at another pump. If 
this does not fix the problem, consult a dealer.

The filler nozzle automatically stops to leave space in 
the fuel tank so that fuel does not overflow as a result 
of changes in air temperature.

WARNING

Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive. 
You can be burned or seriously injured 
when handling fuel.

Turn the power system off, and keep 
heat, sparks, and flame away.

Handle fuel only outdoors.

Wipe up spills immediately.

When the tank is full, the filler nozzle will 
click off automatically. This leaves space 
in the fuel tank in case the fuel expands 
with a change in the temperature.

u

If you do not fill up the tank to full, 
always add a minimum of 

1.3 US gal 

(5.0 L)

 of fuel.

9.

After filling, replace the fuel fill cap, 
tightening it until you hear it click at least 
once.

u

Shut the fuel fill door by hand.

How to Refuel

If the fuel fill door does not open after you press the 
button, even after the display changes to 

Ready

, you 

can manually open the door.

2

If You Cannot Unlock the Fuel Fill Door

 

P. 584

An internal valve automatically closes after 30 
minutes from the moment you press the fuel fill door 
release button. When it does, do not continue to 
refuel as fuel may spill out.

If you repeatedly fill the tank with less than the 
specified minimum amount of fuel, the malfunction 
indicator lamp may come on. If this happens, have 
your vehicle checked by a dealer.

Do not continue to add fuel after the filler nozzle has 
automatically stopped. Additional fuel can exceed 
the full tank capacity.

When the fuel fill door automatically opens, a vent 
valve in the fuel system also opens to allow the air 
and the vapors being displaced by the fuel to escape. 
This valve automatically closes, however, if the 
refueling is not completed within 30 minutes. If this 
happens, reinstall the fuel cap, close the fuel fill door, 
and then follow these steps again to restart the 
system.

Safety When Performing Maintenance

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 you should perform a given task.

To reduce the possibility of fire or explosion, keep cigarettes, sparks, and flames 
away from the 12-volt battery, all High Voltage system, and all fuel related parts.

Never leave rags, towels, or other flammable objects under the hood.

u

Heat from the engine and exhaust can ignite them, causing a fire.

To clean parts, use a commercially available degreaser or parts cleaner, not 
gasoline.

Wear eye protection and protective clothing when working with the 12-volt 
battery or compressed air.

Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, which is poisonous and can kill you.

u

Only operate the engine if there is sufficient ventilation.
