quote:Dealers too, apparently. I don't believe we will ever use the local Honda dealer anymore as they routinely overfilled her Civic by 1/2"+ over the top line on the dipstick; although I suppose this could have been another case of the dipstick itself being wrong We always had the dealer do the oil changes since it was under warranty.
Originally posted by buster: I just looked at my manual. It states that the oil level should be between the add and full mark, or 1/2 way in other words. It's possible that Honda made it this way bc it's quite common for IffyLube to over fill cars. Happens all the time.
