    Did a search didn't really find anything on the brand of oil or synthetic or not. I'm thinking Mobil one any thoughts? I have also had good luck with motor craft oil in my 2010.

    Even if you limit yourself to just this forum, you'll find quite a lot of data and opinions. I've looked through nearly all of them. I think you should look through them as well. After all my research, I decided I'm going with:

    Mobil 1 0W-20 High Mileage Advanced Full Synthetic Motor Oil

    I haven't decided on a filter yet, I still have a few thousand miles before that time comes. What filter are you going with?

    Some people get synthetics with an aim for high PAO content. PAO is by definition synthetic oil, but it's compatibility with additives and detergents is not the best in heavier oil (so, not likely a factor with our 0w-20 recommended). After reading on synthetics, I chose an oil with GTL Group III base stock because of the very good reduced volatility. Lower volatility means less oil loss, reduced accelerated aging of oil, less additive depletion (maintains cleaning ability and pH), better degradation with higher temperatures (turbochargers), and decreased piston and turbocharger deposit build-up. PM me, and I'll tell you the oil I chose.

    Any SAE approved oil for gasoline car will do the job.
    I always buy any know good oil brand in special sale. I do more than 200,000kms / 124,000 miles on the 2nd car, a Toyota Corolla

    Personally not a fan of Mobil 1. Tried it since it was the most popular but it was burning in my 2002 Acura RSX Premium.

    This is the reason why I learned about Castrol 0W-30 (Made in Germany) and never looked backed.

    I would use it on my Hatchback Sport Touring but this is the first that recommends 0W-20 and can't take that risk.

    I always wanted to try Amsoil so ordered the Signature Series. Changing it myself sometime next month when I hit 8k/km.

    Well I always use Castrol GTX in my Celica. But I don't know what the dealer will put in the civic since they are doing as part of the purchase package. And I'm not sure if I can request what to put....

    problem is you can request whatever but how can you know what they actually put in your car? I change my own.
