Just had my 1st oil change at 2500 miles. I have a '19 accord 1.5t automatic. All stock.Took it easy in city and interstate. I'm going with amsoil xl 0w20 and amsoil filter. I chose this oil because of its low oil evap and protection properties. I drive 35 miles a day 5 days a week.

What type of oil (synthetic or regular) is given from factory on new Accord 19? Is it needed to change oil after I hit the first 3000 miles? Thanks
Your car came w/Honda Synthetic Oil (see attachments). As for time to change the oil go by the Maintenance Minder on when to change it.

Thanks. Genuine Honda Motor oil is then synthetic oil? I thought Synthetic Oil is good upto 7000 miles. My MaintenanceI Minder came on at 3k, is it because I hit over a year? Thanks
Yes, Honda oil is "full synthetic" ( as indicated on the container). Your Maintenance Minder goes by a combination of several things... mileage, time, driving habits, driving conditions, etc... also annual oil changes are recommended. I don't put a lot of miles on my car (currently 8k & it will be 3 yrs old in March) and my MM has indicated oil change needed about every 12 months (have had 2 already & it's showing 30% now).
Thanks a lot. This is good to know. Not driving this vehicle, if this oil change is not absolutely necessary I will delay my visit to dealership until the infection rate improves a bit. Before holiday starts, they get more traffic.
You didn't mention what your MM % is but I wouldn't go past 0% (I have mine done @ 10% minimum if not sooner).
