Hi Scotty,

I just bought a 2019 Honda Civic Sport Touring. I do the oil changes for my 2002 Acura TL and my dad's 2008 Rav4 using Penzoil Full synthetic. I never had a car with a digital maintenance reminder so I did some research and I came across the following page.

One of the answers stated this "Synthetic oil is not recommended by Honda." So I had a few questions.

  1. Is there any truth to this?
  2. Does the maintenance minder account for what type of oil is put in or does it just assume that the car is running on Honda's own oil?
  3. I also read that Honda has their own oil stated as synthetic. Isn't that contradicting what the other website said?

Thanks for all your helpful videos! Dan
