My wife received one for hers, along with a recall notice for some emissions issue. I haven’t sat down and compared notes with the previous version to see what’s changed.

I purchased a holdover ‘16, for which they lost the owners manual and later said they “found it”. But it was actually a 2017 one they gave me, not the ‘16. Since Honda is not aware that I even have an old ‘17 manual for mine, I am sure they won’t send me a new one. Perhaps if I call customer service they will.

I've got a '16 DCT, haven't seen or heard of anyone local getting a revised manual. Can you possibly do a compare of the original vs replacement version, and advise of the differences /corrections to the maintenance schedule?

I believe the ‘16 manuals are fine, since my wife received an updated one for her ‘17 and I did not for my ‘16.

But since I never got the original for my ‘16, I can’t be sure

Weird. This is the original manual and the new one my wife just received. Only difference I can see between the two is the original was a more off-white color and contrast wasn’t as good.

Yes. I also purchased the service manual and reference that for service anyway, since its easier to read than the Honda micro-book user manual

yea same here , although the mistake i made on my rear wheel install was wrong in the honda tm. calls for the rear wheel hat bushing to be installed on right side of tire and when installed that side it causes the caliper and disc brake to rub. my mistake in not remembering how it came off. either way no damage and im lucky i caught it. but manual def shows it being put in wrong side fyi ... i had tire off for almost a week so it wasnt fresh in my mind..
