2015 Acura TLX: Due for B16 Service

2015 Acura TLX

This warning greeted me when I got into our 2015 Acura TLX recently. "B16" has a special resonance for Honda nerds, being the prefix engine code for one of Honda's beloved four-cylinders from the 1990's. This particular alphanumeric, however, isn't nearly as special.

In this case, the code denotes a service that includes several standard items. "B" calls for a new oil and oil filter, parking brake adjustment and a list of fluid and safety inspections. "1" requests a tire rotation. And the "6" is for rear differential fluid replacement, the norm for AWDs.

We'll call to schedule the service and report back.
