2018 rdx - is this an issue ??

Hello all

I'm not really a car buff I just drive them ..so I was looking in the hood and the liquid around battery terminal ..

Is this an issue with some leak or is that liquid some sort of needed thing ??

it looks like red contact spray, good for battery terminals. make sure there isn't white powder under the positive red cover, that means it needs to be cleaned up with baking soda and water and then more red contact cleaner.

Sure. They coated your battery terminals with a solution (usually oil-based, but I use white lithium grease from a spray can) to keep them from corroding. It's something that should be done anytime you put in a new battery.
