This manual contains the safe operation and maintenance of your Honda CIVIC Wagon and CIVIC Wagon with Real Time ® Four-Wheel Drive (4WD).

information about

important

We urge you to read it carefully, become familiar with the controls it describes, and follow its recommendations, to help make your driving trouble-free and enjoyable.

Statements or labels on the product preceded by the following words are of special significance:

indicates severe personal injury or death will result if instructions are not followed.

indicates a strong possibility of severe personal injury or death if instructions are not followed.

means hazards or unsafe practices which could cause minor personal injury or product or property damage.

NOTE:

gives helpful information.

Break-in Period During the first 600 miles (1,000 km) of driving, avoid full throttle starts and cruising for extended periods at a constant speed.

NOTE:

This break-in procedure also applies to exchanged or overhauled engines. During and after the break-in period, drive the car at moderate speeds until the engine is fully warmed up.

CAUTION: (4WD:) Although 4WD provides better traction on poor road surfaces or when driving in snow or mud, this car is not designed for off-road use.

During the first 200 miles (300 km), try to avoid severe braking. Brake misuse during this period will reduce future braking efficiency.

Remember, your Honda Automobile dealer knows your car best, and should be consulted for service assistance and advice.

Main Menust Keys and Locks

Keys Two identical keys come with your car. You should keep one of them in a safe place, away from the car, as a spare. Also write down the number stamped on the key and keep it in your wallet or purse in case you ever need to have a duplicate made. The key fits the ignition switch, door locks, and tailgate lock. The key can be inserted into the locks with either edge up.

Door Locks You can lock the doors by pushing the tabs down. The doors must be unlocked before you can open them. The passenger door can be locked when open, and will stay locked when you close it; the driver's door cannot be locked when open unless you hold the door handle open. Both doors can be locked and unlocked from the outside with the key.

Keep the tailgate closed while driving, to keep poisonous carbon monoxide exhaust fumes out of the interior; prolonged exposure can cause unconsciousness that may lead to death. Weight limits shown on the label located in the glove box must be observed. The total weight of passengers and cargo must not exceed the total weight limit on the label.

Child Proof Door Locks The child proof door locks are de- signed to prevent accidental open- ing of the rear doors. To activate the locks, push down the lock tabs located on each door, then close the doors. When the doors are locked in this way, they can only be opened from the outside.

Main Menust Seats

Front Seat Adjust the seat position by pulling up on the adjustment lever under the front edge of the seat cushion, and sliding the seat to the desired position. Then release the lever and make sure the seat is locked in position by moving it back and forth.

ADJUSTMENT LEVER

Pull up

RELEASE LEVER

The angle of the seat-back can be changed by pulling up on the lever at the outside edge of the seat and leaning forward or back. Release the lever and let the seat lock into place when it reaches the desired angle. Seat belts are most effective when the driver and passenger are sitting up straight and well back in each seat.

Do not adjust the driver's seat while the car is moving; the seat could move suddenly, causing loss of vehicle control. To reduce the risk of sliding under the seat belts in a collision, the seat-backs should be reclined no more than is necessary for comfort.
