Brake Fluid  
MAX  
4WD model only  
Check the fluid level in the brake  
fluid reservoir monthly.  
The rear differential should be  
drained and refilled with new fluid  
according to the maintenance  
messages shown on the information  
display. Have your dealer replace the  
rear differential fluid.  
Replace the brake fluid according to  
the maintenance messages shown on  
the information display.  
Always use Honda Heavy Duty  
Brake Fluid DOT 3. If it is not  
available, you should use only DOT 3  
or DOT 4 fluid, from a sealed  
container, as a temporary  
replacement.  
Use Honda Dual Pump Fluid II only.  
Do not use automatic transmission  
fluid (ATF).  
MIN  
The fluid level should be between  
the MIN and MAX marks on the side  
of the reservoir. If the level is at or  
below the MIN mark, your brake  
system needs attention. Have the  
brake system inspected for leaks or  
worn brake pads.  
Using any non-Honda brake fluid can  
cause corrosion and decrease the life  
of the system. Have the brake  
system flushed and refilled with  
Honda Heavy Duty Brake Fluid  
DOT 3 as soon as possible.  
Brake fluid marked DOT 5 is not  
compatible with your vehicle’s  
braking system and can cause  
extensive damage.
