I've been a Mobil 1 fan for +20 years for my Honda and Acura vehicles (use the viscosity level printed on engine oil cap). I stick to the M.I.D. oil change intervals and use Honda/Acura oil filters. I also make sure to double-check and keep the OEM engine air filter clean and replace every 20,000 to 25,000 miles depending on how it looks. I pick the recommended octane level and use top tier fuel or high quality fuel with cleaning additives will also help keep injectors cleaner and carbon build-up at a minimal. I also got in the habit of changing my 100,000 mile spark plugs at around 75,000 miles.

I use Mobil 1 synthetic, with that said, for an everyday daily driver, any synthetic is fine. Just make sure you stick to the appropriate API and viscosity.

I also use Mobil 1 synthetic EP 5w-20 in my 2007 Type-S. I drive it less than 1800 miles/year but change it once/year along with a Mobil 1 filter due to the potential additive depletion after one year. Probably overkill.

I have used Valvoline full synthetic 5W-20 on my '06 & '10 TL's. I change oil and filter (Honda or Wix) at 5000 miles or once a year. I have always stored these cars from mid November - mid April to avoid MN Winter. Very clean engine. The cars typically cleared 3000 - 5000 miles each summer.
