I have never owned a Honda, and I'm still a fairly new Toyota owner. From what I can tell, though, Hondas are quite a bit less convenient to deal with than Toyotas for the maintenance DIYer. True? Hondas need special power steering fluid that is hard to find, for example. I also note that Honda repair information is not available at Autozone.com for some reason. It is for Toyota. Then, of course, there is the 5W-20 oil requirement which makes it harder to find motor oils. (Not trying to start a thing here on 20 vs. 30, just noting the fact that Honda calls for 20 which is harder to find. I know Ford does as well.) Of course, parts, fluids, and supplies for domestic brands are everywhere... but it seems like between Toyota and Honda, Toyotas are a lot more convenient to maintain because of fewer "special" requirements.
