What Is the Recommended Motor Oil for a Honda Odyssey Minivan?
Honda recommends using Honda Genuine Oil for the Honda Odyssey minivan, along with all other types of Honda vehicles. Honda Genuine Oil is available at local Honda dealers. If Honda Genuine Oil is not obtainable, Honda recommends using oil with the Starburst certification symbol only.
The Starburst certification symbol indicates that an oil meets specific standards set by the automotive industry. Starburst-certified oil has a long life and provides protection against sludge and wear. Honda Genuine Oil meets Starburst requirements and is tested on Honda vehicles.
Before using a motor oil, check the Honda owner's manual for the vehicle's oil viscosity recommendation. Only use motor oil that has the same viscosity as the Honda vehicle's recommendation.
