No, owners manual SPECIFIES 5W-20 oil.
Do you always take specifications like that as suggestions, to be
second-guessed by yourself (a trained and experienced auto engineer, I
presume) and random people on the internet?
I am OK with it if the owner's manual specifies it as it does for my wife's
Pilot. I become a little concerned when the dealer only offers 5 - 20 for
my 01 Prelude which specifies 5 - 30. So, I bring my own Mobil 1 5 - 30
when I have a service appointment.
