2014 Acura MDX: Maintenance Required Soon

June 3, 2014

2014 Acura MDX

Our long-term 2014 Acura MDX SH-AWD is hungry for a checkup. On my way home from the office, a message popped up warning me that the Oil Life had reached 15%. Since then, every time the vehicle was restarted the message would appear with a healthy "bing" and the letter code "B16". As Dan Edmunds pointed out before, Acura's Maintenance Minder system "monitors our driving behavior and adjusts the service intervals accordingly"

Broken down, B16 includes -

B: Replace engine oil and oil filter, check parking brake adjustment, and inspect fluid levels, front and rear brakes, suspension, fuel lines, steering, driveshaft boots, exhaust system, etc.

1: Rotate tires

6: Replace rear differential fluid

Yes, the startup nanny message can get annoying, but I appreciate that it is clear and gives us fair warning to schedule the work needed.
