Selecting the Right Motor Oil for Your Vehicle's Routine Maintenance at Showcase Honda

We here at Showcase Honda are interested in talking to you a bit more about the type of motor oil you're using for your routine maintenance appointments. Whether you want to invest in a high-quality synthetic or would rather use an affordable option like conventional oil, there are some different details that we like to know about to make the best recommendation for you. Our certified technicians are extremely experienced with different makes and models of vehicles and the different routine maintenance tasks they perform.

Let's take a look at some of the different motor oil types available at Showcase Honda:

Full Synthetic Motor Oil

If optimal performance and lubrication are concerns for you, fully synthetic motor oil is what we recommend. This type of oil provides the opportunity for higher viscosity levels, resistance to sludge, and optimal protection against thermal breakdown. The investment of full synthetic may help you boost your vehicle's efficiency, which is worth the extra cost. Full synthetic motor oil works extremely well in vehicles that are frequently driving in different climates/seasons.

Synthetic Blend Motor Oil

Additives are included in synthetic blends as a way to increase the overall protection against oxidation. It's a very affordable option compared to other oils, and you can easily make the switch to this variety if you've been using something else like conventional motor oil.

Conventional Motor Oil

Ideal for light-duty vehicles that don't travel very far distances at one time, conventional motor oil is extremely affordable and practical for vehicles that have consistent weather and temperatures.

High Mileage Motor Oil

Make the switch over to high mileage motor oil if your vehicle has more than 75,000 miles on it. High mileage motor oil comes equipped with seal conditioners that can prevent leaks within your engine. You can also use this type of oil to reduce your oil consumption and emissions.
