Protecting Compact Discs

Handle a 

CD

 by its edges; never

touch either surface. Contamination
from fingerprints, liquids, felt-tip
pens, and labels can cause the 

CD

 to

not play properly, or possibly jam in
the drive.

When a 

CD

 is not being played,

store it in its case to protect it from
dust and other contamination. To
prevent warpage, keep 

CD

s out of

direct sunlight and extreme heat.

To clean a disc, use a clean soft
cloth. Wipe across the disc from
the center to the outside edge.

A new 

CD

 may be rough on the

inner and outer edges. The small
plastic pieces causing this
roughness can flake off and fall
on the recording surface of the
disc, causing skipping or other
problems. Remove these pieces
by rubbing the inner and outer
edges with the side of a pencil
or pen.

Never try to insert foreign objects
in the 

CD

 player.

Driving Tips

Driving Guidelines

Your Honda has higher ground
clearance than a passenger car
designed for use only on
pavement. Higher ground
clearance has many advantages
for off-road 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 high center of
gravity. This means that your
vehicle can tip or roll over if you
make abrupt turns. Utility
vehicles have a significantly
higher rollover rate than other
types of vehicles.

To prevent rollover or loss of
control:

 Take corners at slower speeds

than you would with a
passenger car.

 Avoid sharp turns and abrupt

maneuvers whenever possible.

 Do not modify your vehicle in

any way that would raise the
center of gravity (see page 

174

).

Do not carry heavy cargo on
the roof (see page

 177

).

For off-road driving guidelines,
see the 

Off-Road Driving

Information 

booklet that came

with your vehicle.

Before Entering the Vehicle

1. Check that the windows,

mirrors, lights and reflectors
are clean and unobstructed.

2. Check the tires to see if they

are low or flat. You will need
a pressure gauge to tell if tires
are properly inflated.

3. Check that all lights work.

4. Check for fluid leaks.

5. Be sure everything is properly

stowed.

6. Check the area behind the

vehicle if you are about to
back up.

Before Driving the Vehicle

1. Lock all doors.

2. Adjust the seat and any

movable head restraints.

3. Adjust the inside and outside

mirrors.

4. Check that all the indicator

lights work when the key

Before Driving

Main Menu

Table of Contents

Driving Tips

switch is turned to the “

ON

or “

START

” position.

5. Check all gauges (including

the fuel gauge).

6. Release the parking brake

(and make sure the “

BRAKE

light turns off).

See related topics in this manual if
you find any problems.

Starting the Engine

1. Apply the parking brake.

2. Manual Transmission: Press

the clutch pedal to the floor
and shift the transmission to
the Neutral position. Hold the
clutch pedal to the floor while
you are starting the engine. A
starter safety switch keeps the
starter from operating if the
clutch pedal is not fully
depressed.

Automatic Transmission:
Place the shift lever in “P”
or “N” position (“P” is
preferred). A starter safety
switch prevents the starter
from operating if the shift
lever is in any drive position.
If it is necessary to restart the
engine with the vehicle
moving, place the shift lever
in “N” (never in “P”).

3. Do not touch the accelerator

pedal. Start the engine by
turning the ignition switch to

START

.”

If the engine does not start in
10 seconds, wait 15 seconds to let
the starter cool down. Then crank
the engine at wide open throttle
for a maximum of 10 seconds. If
the engine still does not start, wait
another 15 seconds and repeat the
entire procedure.

Do not crank the engine for more
than 10 seconds at a time. Wait 15
seconds before trying again.

4. Return the ignition switch to

the “

ON

” position as soon as

the engine starts.

5. Apply the regular brakes and

shift into the proper gear.
Release the parking brake and
brake pedal and drive off.

In models with an automatic
transmission, you cannot shift
from “P” (Park) position to
any other position unless the
brake pedal is applied.
