Important Safety Precautions 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...

Page 30

Pay appropriate attention to the task of driving safely 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...

Page 31

Some features do not require any action on your part... These include a strong steel framework that forms a safety cage around the passenger compartment, front and rear crush zones, a collapsible steering column, and tensioners that tighten the front seat belts in a sufficient crash...

Page 32

Adjust your seat to a position suitable for driving... Be sure the front seats are adjusted as far to the rear as possible while allowing the driver to control the vehicle... Sitting too close to a front airbag can result in serious or fatal injury in a crash...

Page 33

About Your Seat Belts Seat belts are the single most effective safety device because they keep you connected to the vehicle so that you can take advantage of many built-in safety features... They also help keep you from being thrown against the inside of the vehicle, against other passengers, or out of the vehicle... When worn properly, seat belts also keep your body properly positioned in a crash so that you can take full advantage of the additional protection provided by the airbags...

Page 34

When no one is sitting in the front passengers seat, the indicator will not come on and the beeper will not sound... The indicator also may not come on and the beeper may not sound when the occupant is not heavy enough to trigger the weight sensor... Such occupants (e... g... , infants and smaller children) should be moved to the rear seat as a deploying front airbag likely will injure or kill them...

Page 35

Are the motor-powered pretensioners that start to retract the front seat belts when the CMBSTM, brake assist system, or VSA system is in operation... They may also activate when you steer the vehicle hard, or the vehicle is impacted... After retracted, the seat belts are slackened to their original positions... As convenient features, the e-pretensioners slightly retract the seat belts when you latch the seat belt buckle, depress the brake pedal more aggressively than you normally do, or make a sharp turn, and fully retract when you release the seat belt buckle...

Page 36

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...

Page 37

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...

Page 38

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...

Page 39

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...

Page 41

eAn electronic control unit that continually monitors and can record information about the sensors, the airbag activators, the seat belt tensioners, and driver and front passenger seat belt use when the power mode is in ON...

Page 42

Airbags can pose serious hazards... To do their job, airbags must inflate with tremendous force... So, while airbags help save lives, they can cause burns, bruises, and other minor injuries, sometimes even fatal ones if occupants are not wearing their seat belts properly and sitting correctly...

Page 43

Dual-Stage, Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags (SRS) Your vehicle is equipped with dual-stage, multiple- threshold front airbags (SRS)... During a frontal crash severe enough to cause one or both front airbags to deploy, the airbags can inflate at different rates, depending on the severity of the crash, whether or not the seat belts are latched, and/ or other factors... Frontal airbags are designed to supplement the seat belts to help reduce the likelihood of head and chest injuries in frontal crashes...

Page 44

Although the drivers and front passengers airbags normally inflate within a split second of each other, it is possible for only one airbag to deploy... 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...

Page 45

When front airbags should not deploy Minor frontal crashes: Front airbags were designed to supplement seat belts and help save lives, not to prevent minor scrapes, or even broken bones that might occur during a less than moderate-to-severe frontal crash... Side impacts: Front airbags can provide protection when a sudden deceleration causes a driver or front passenger to move toward the front of the vehicle... Side airbags and side curtain airbags have been specifically designed to help reduce the severity of injuries that can occur during a moderate-to-severe side impact which can cause the driver or passenger to move toward the side of the vehicle... Rear impacts: Head restraints and seat belts are your best protection during a rear impact... Front airbags cannot provide any significant protection and are not designed to deploy in such collisions... Rollovers: Seat belts, and in vehicles equipped with a rollover sensor, side airbags, and side curtain airbags offer the best protection in a rollover... Because front airbags could provide little if any protection, they are not designed to deploy during a rollover... When front airbags deploy with little or no visible damage Because the airbag system senses sudden deceleration, a strong impact to the vehicle framework or suspension might cause one or more of the airbags to deploy... Examples include running into a curb, the edge of a hole, or other low fixed object that causes a sudden deceleration in the vehicle chassis... Since the impact is underneath the vehicle, damage may not be readily apparent... When front airbags may not deploy, even though exterior damage

Page 46

Although we recommend against carrying an infant or small child in front, if the sensors detect the weight of a child (up to about 65 lbs or 29 kg), the system will automatically turn off the passengers front airbag...

Page 47

Drivers Knee Airbag The drivers knee SRS airbag inflates 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 vehicles other safety features...

Page 48

When drivers knee airbag deploys with little or no visible damage Because the airbag system senses sudden deceleration, a strong impact to the vehicle framework or suspension might cause one or more of the airbags to deploy... Examples include running into a curb, the edge of a hole, or other low fixed object that causes a sudden deceleration in the vehicle chassis... Since the impact is underneath the vehicle, damage may not be readily apparent...

Page 49

Do not cover or replace the front seat-back covers without consulting a dealer... Improperly replacing or covering front seat-back covers can prevent your side airbags from properly deploying during a side impact...

Page 50

It is possible for a side airbag to not deploy during an impact that results in apparently severe damage... This can occur when the point of impact was toward the far front or rear of the vehicle, or when the vehicles crushable body parts absorbed most of the crash energy... In either case, the side airbag would not have been needed nor provided protection even if it had deployed...

Page 51

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... 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...

Page 52

When side curtain airbags deploy in a frontal collision One or both side curtain airbags may also inflate in a moderate-to-severe angled frontal collision... In this case, the side curtain airbags will deploy slightly after the front airbags...

Page 53

If the indicator comes on with no front passenger and no objects on the passengers seat, or with an adult riding there, something may be interfering with the weight sensors, such as: An object hanging on the seat or in the seat-back

Page 54

Do not remove or modify a front seat without consulting a dealer This would likely disable the drivers seat position sensor or the weight sensors in the passengers 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, Acura Client Relations at 800-382-2238 and for Canadian vehicles, Acura Client Services at 1- 888-9-ACURA-9...

Page 55

Protecting Child Passengers Each year, many children are injured or killed in vehicle crashes because they are either unrestrained or not properly restrained... In fact, vehicle accidents are the number one cause of death of children ages 12 and under...

Page 56

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...

Page 57

If this occurs, we recommend that you install the child seat directly behind the front passengers 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...

Page 58

Placing a forward-facing child seat in the front seat can be hazardous, even with advanced front airbags that automatically turn the passengers front airbag off... A rear seat is the safest place for a child...

Page 59

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 owners manual for proper installation instructions...

Page 60

2... Place the child seat on the vehicle seat, then attach the child seat to the lower anchors according to the instructions that came with the child seat... u When installing the child seat, make sure

Page 61

For your childs safety, when using a child seat installed using the LATCH system, make sure that the child seat is properly secured to the vehicle... A child seat that is not properly secured will not adequately protect a child in a crash and may cause injury to the child or other vehicle occupants...

Page 62

4... Let the seat belt completely wind up into the retractor, then try to pull it out to make sure the retractor is locked... u If you are able to pull the shoulder belt

Page 63

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... u When doing this, place your weight on

Page 64

A tether anchorage point is provided behind each rear seating position... If you have a child restraint system that comes with a tether but can be installed with a seat belt, the tether may be used for additional security...

Page 65

for the whole trip? If you answer yes to all these questions, the child is ready to wear the lap/shoulder seat belt correctly... If you answer no to any question, the child needs to ride on a booster seat until the seat belt fits properly without a booster seat...

Page 66

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

Page 67

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

Page 68

If a label comes off or becomes hard to read (except for the U... S... dashboard label which may be removed by the owner), contact a dealer for a replacement...

Following is an example of tire size with an explanation of what each component means... 225/50R18 95H 225: Tire width in millimeters... 50: Aspect ratio (the tires section height as a percentage of its width)... R: Tire construction code (R indicates radial)... 18: Rim diameter in inches... 95: Load index (a numerical code associated with the maximum load the tire can carry)... H: Speed symbol (an alphabetical code indicating the maximum speed rating)...

Page 465

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 Means 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 Means 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) Means the projections within the principal grooves designed to give a visual indication of the degrees of wear of the tread...

Page 466

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...

Page 467

The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tires 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...

Page 468

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...

Page 469

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 tires sidewall)... Using tires of a different size or construction can cause the ABS, vehicle stability assist (VSA), SH-AWD* system to work incorrectly...

Page 470

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...
