I will have to be convinced that Honda will deny warranty coverage based on not using a Honda oil filter. Just sayin'.

BTW, Honda dealerships are not Honda. Dealerships are merely the local interface between you/me and Honda corporate. True, they have connections the average Joe doesn't have. OTOH, dealerships are not the final word on coverage either.

A better response would come from Honda corporate on warranty coverage using non-Honda branded oil filters... air filters, etc. Honda fluids may be a different story.... tranny, rear diff, etc.
They told me once, and I just smiled. I knew they knew better but pushing their parts was a priority. Whenever I have had them do changes, I always brought my own oil and filters, Honda brand or not.

Re: My oil options?

Simply stated, ask if the filter is free. If it is not free then it ain't a warranty item, courtesy of the US Magussen-Moss act which stops all that crap. Same goes for the pitch on the ATF, any that meets Honda spec will not affect warranty.

As far as I know, no 'universal' fluid claims to meet DW-1 which is the latest Honda specified ATF.
