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 such as the ABS and 
Vehicle Stability Assist

TM

 (VSA

®

) system 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.

Make sure that the wheel’s specifications match those of the original wheels.

interface helps to distribute wear more evenly and increase tire life.

Tires without rotation marks

Rotate the tires as shown here.

Tires with rotation marks

Rotate the tires as shown here.

1

Tire Rotation

Tires with directional tread patterns should only be 
rotated front to back (not from one side to the other).
Directional tires should be mounted with the rotation 
indication mark facing forward, as shown below.

Whenever tires are rotated, you must calibrate the 
TPMS.

Winter Tires

If driving on snowy or frozen roads, mount all season marked 

M+S

 tires, snow tires, or tire 

chains; reduce speed; and maintain sufficient distance between vehicles when driving.

Be particularly careful when operating the steering wheel or brakes to prevent 
skidding.

Use tire chains, snow tires, or all season tires when necessary or according to the law.

When mounting, refer to the following points.

For winter tires:

Select the size and load ranges that are the same as the original tires.

Mount the tires to all four wheels.

For tire chains:

Install them on the front tires only.

Because your vehicle has limited tire clearance, we strongly recommend using the 
chains listed below:

Follow the chain manufacturer’s instruction when installing. Mount them as 
tightly as you can.

Check that the chains do not touch the brake lines or suspension.

Drive slowly.

Climate Control System Maintenance

Air Conditioning

To ensure proper and safe operation, the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE 
J2845) recommends that the refrigerant system only be serviced by trained and 
certified technicians.

Never repair or replace the air conditioning evaporator (cooling coil) with one 
removed from a used or salvaged vehicle.

New replacement mobile air conditioning evaporators must be certified (and 
labeled) as meeting SAE Standard J2842.

Dust and Pollen Filter

The climate control system is equipped with a dust and pollen filter that collects 
pollen, dust, and other debris in the air. The Maintenance Minder

TM

 messages will let 

you know when to replace the filter.

We recommend that you replace the dust and pollen filter sooner when using your 
vehicle in areas with high concentrations of dust.

Air Conditioning

NOTICE

Vented refrigerant is harmful to the environment.
To avoid refrigerant from venting, never replace the 
evaporator with one removed from a used or 
salvaged vehicle.

Refrigerant in your vehicle’s air conditioning system is 
flammable and can be ignited during servicing if 
proper procedures are not followed.

Exterior Care

Dust off the vehicle body after you drive. Regularly inspect your vehicle for scratches 
on painted surfaces. A scratch on a painted surface can result in body rust. If you 
find a scratch, promptly repair it.

Wash the vehicle regularly. Wash more frequently when driving in the following 
conditions:

If driving on roads with road salt.

If driving in coastal areas.

If tar, soot, bird droppings, insects, or tree sap are stuck to painted surfaces.

Make sure to follow the instructions indicated on the automated car wash.

Fold in the door mirrors.

For models equipped with automatic intermittent wipers, turn the wipers off.

Keep sufficient distance between the cleaning nozzle and the vehicle body.

Take particular care around the windows. Standing too close may cause water to 
enter the vehicle interior.

Do not spray high pressure water directly into the engine compartment. Instead, 
use low pressure water and a mild detergent.

A good coat of automotive body wax helps protect your vehicle’s paint from the 
elements. Wax will wear off over time and expose your vehicle’s paint to the 
elements, so reapply as necessary.

If you get gasoline, oil, engine coolant, or battery fluid on resin coated parts, they 
may be stained or the coating may peel. Promptly wipe it away using a soft cloth and 
clean water.

Wipe using a glass cleaner.

Aluminum is susceptible to deterioration caused by salt and other road 
contaminants. When necessary, as early as possible use a sponge and mild detergent 
to wipe away these contaminants. Do not use a stiff brush or harsh chemicals 
(including some commercial wheel cleaners). These can damage the protective finish 
on aluminum alloy wheels, resulting in corrosion. Depending on the type of finish, 
the wheels also may lose their luster or appear burnished. To avoid water stains, 
wipe the wheels dry with a cloth while they are still wet.

The inside lenses of exterior lights (headlights, brake lights, etc.) may fog temporarily 
if you have driven in the rain, or after the vehicle has been run through a car wash.
Dew condensation also may build up inside the lenses when there is a significant 
enough difference between the ambient and inside lens temperatures (similar to 
vehicle windows fogging up in rainy conditions). These conditions are natural 
processes, not structural design problems in the exterior lights.
Lens design characteristics may result in moisture developing on the light lens frame 
surfaces. This also is not a malfunction.
However, if you see large amounts of water accumulation, or large water drops 
building up inside the lenses, have your vehicle inspected by a dealer.

Refer to the temperature notice label affixed to the driver’s doorjamb before

Modifications

Do not modify your vehicle in a manner that may affect its handling, stability, or 
reliability, or install non-genuine Honda parts or accessories that may have a similar 
effect.

Even minor modifications to vehicle systems can affect overall vehicle performance. 
Always make sure all equipment is properly installed and maintained, and do not 
make any modification to your vehicle or its systems that might cause your vehicle 
to no longer meet federal, state, province, territory, and local regulations.

The on-board diagnostic port (OBD-II/SAE J1962 connector) installed on this vehicle 
is intended to be used with automobile system diagnostic devices or with other 
devices that Honda has approved. Use of any other type of device may adversely 
affect the vehicle’s electronic systems or allow them to be compromised, possibly 
resulting in a system malfunction, drained battery, or other unexpected problems.

Do not modify or attempt to repair your vehicle's high-voltage hybrid power system 
or otherwise modify vehicle electrical systems. Disassembling or modifying electrical 
equipment can result in a crash or a fire.

If you ever need to replace your vehicle’s high-voltage battery assembly outside of 
warranty coverage, we highly recommend that you only use a genuine Honda high-
voltage battery assembly. Genuine Honda high-voltage battery assemblies are 
designed to work with your vehicle’s hybrid power system and have been designed, 
engineered and manufactured to avoid overcharging situations. Non-genuine high-
voltage battery assemblies may not have been similarly designed, engineered and 
manufactured, and installation of such assemblies could result in overcharging, fires, 
loss of power, or other conditions that may increase the likelihood of a crash or
