We own a 2018 EX-L AWD with the 1.5l, purchased new and currently have about 23K miles on it. My wife mostly drive it and really likes it...quiet, the ride, the handling. Friends who have ridden in it ditto the same thoughts. Yes it is a fuel diluter, even though we do no do any short trips...minimum 10mi drive to the closest town. At 5000mi oil change you drain out an extra 0.5qt....sump is only 3.7qt w/filter. The "fix"/update that was performed did not help. Wear data I have seen from UOA's done at 3500-5000 miles seem fine. So I do that plus use 0W30 vs the 0W20 spec'd out in the manual. They did extend the power train warranty from 5yr/60K to 6yr/unlimited..."kicking the can" down the road I guess?
