TSX Oil Capacity

The owners manual says that my 2007 TSX should take 4.4 quarts of oil but when I changed the oil the first time it took 5 quarts. Does this make sense?

My 06 TSX takes 5 quarts with the filter every time (I've done 4 oil changes so far). My manual also says the capacity with filter is 4.4 Qrts

So I'm not crazy

Thanks, so I'm not crazy. Actually it makes oil changes easier since I like to use the 5 qt jugs of Mobil 1. BTW could they have put the oil filter in a harder location to get to?

I just love getting my forearm toasted on the exhaust pipe trying to get the bugger off. I usually take the passenger tire off to get better access. I also love the fact that the filter is @ 90degrees when mounted to the block that way when you remove it you are sure to have a spill. I can see an oil filter relocation kit in my future.

They did make the filter a POS.

But 5 should be fine.
