uuBraking uBrake System
Your vehicle is equipped with disc brakes at all four wh eels. The brake assist system
increases the stopping force when you depress the brake pedal hard in an
emergency situation. The an ti-lock brake system (ABS) helps you retain steering
control when braking very hard.

To satisfy the performance under a wide range of driving conditions, a high-
performance braking system is equipped on your vehicle. You may hear the brake
squeal under certain conditions, such as vehicle speed, deceleration, humidity, and
so on. This is not a malfunction.

Check the brakes after driving through deep water,
or if there is a buildup of road surface water. If
necessary, dry the brakes by lightly depressing the
pedal several times.
If you hear a continuous me tallic friction sound when
applying the brakes, this is caused by the brake wear
indicator rubbing on the brake rotor and indicates
that the brake pads need to replaced. Have your
vehicle checked by an authorized Acura NSX dealer.
If you hear only an occasional squeak or squeal when
you initially apply the brake pedal, this may be normal
and caused by high frequen cy vibration of the brake
pads against the rotating brake disc.
Constantly using the brak e pedal while going down a
long hill builds up heat, which reduces the brake
effectiveness. Apply regene rative braking by taking
your foot off the accelerator pedal and downshifting
to a lower gear.
Do not rest your foot on the brake pedal while
driving, as it will lightly apply the brakes and cause
them to lose effectiveness over time and reduce pad
life. It will also conf use drivers behind you.

uuCleaning uExterior Care
The inside lenses of exterior lights (headlig hts, brake lights, etc.) may fog temporarily
if you have driven in the rain. Dew condensation also may build up inside the lenses
when there is a significan t enough difference between the ambient and inside lens
temperatures (similar to vehicle windows fogging up in rainy conditions). These
conditions are natural processes, not stru ctural design problems in the exterior
Lens design characteristics may result in mo isture developing on the light lens frame
surfaces. This also is not a malfunction.
However, if you see large amounts of wa ter accumulation, or large water drops
building up inside the lenses, have your vehicle inspected by an authorized Acura
Keep the brake pads and rotors free of subs tances that are either abrasive or oil
based, as these substances can reduce braking power.
When driving in the presence of salt and/ or sand, briefly wash the rotor/pad surfaces
with low-pressure water, and then brake th e system dry to help maintain the brake
Brake maintenance requires specialized kn owledge. We recommend maintenance
to be carried out by an au thorized Acura NSX dealer.
