2015 Acura TLX: B16 Bingo for Maintenance
by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on November 24, 2015
Our 2015 Acura TLX is due for a maintenance service, or so says the gauge cluster display. The display also has a Bingo-like code that you'll need to look up in the owner's manual to determine what's required.
In the case of "B16," said manual notes that B is for an oil-and-filter change and a multipoint inspection.
Codes 1 and 6 are for a tire rotation and a rear diff service.
Interestingly, though, the TLX's oil life indicator still shows we've got 15 percent of our hit points left.
Having it come on at 15 percent seems a bit early to me. If this were my TLX, I would be a little miffed about having to either drive around with the service indicator on until oil life dropped to, say, 5 to 10 percent, or take the car in for service knowing there's still a decent amount of oil life left, according to the monitor anyway.
What do you think?
