What is it?
Part of the Variable Torque Management® 4WD System (VTM-4®), the rear differential automatically varies the amount of torque distributed to each rear wheel based on demand. Rear differential fluid lubricates and cools the clutch packs inside the rear differential.
What if I ignore it?
- Differential fluid degrades and breaks down (wears out) with use, and poor fluid or condition can cause the VTM-4® differential clutches to make noise and to judder when turning
- Reduced 4-wheel-drive system performance
What if I take care of it?
- Help maximize longevity of rear differential VTM-4® system
- Help prevent possible costly repairs
- Eliminate or avoid system noise and judder
- Help maintain optimal system performance
What are the benefits of Honda Genuine rear differential (VTM-4®) fluid?

- It's the only differential fluid specifically approved for use in VTM-4® systems
- Provides required coefficient of friction for proper limited slip operation
- Contains superior lubrication qualities with selected additives to reduce noise and wear
- Resistant to high-temperature breakdown
- Using non-Honda Genuine fluid could cause overheating, leading to fluid breakdown, noisy gears, and excessive wear
