    Another “SP” rated oil sighting

    I purchased the COSTCO 5w 30 full syn last week. It is rated "SP". Pretty good deal for $21.99!

    A year and 20K with the Accord Hybrid

    I also have a 2018 Accord EX hybrid. From my experience your comments were spot-on.

I am intrigued by your comment that no panels have to be removed to do the change. The owners manual does not portray...

    Camry vs Accord vs ???

    I purchased a 2018 Accord hybrid. The price differential between the standard "gas" Accord vs. the hybrid was much narrower the same comparison of the Camry hybrids. Gas mileage is a tad higher in the Camry, but not worth the price differential. A very strong consideration for me, at the time...
