Went to get a filter and the new filter is small. About 1 inch shorter than the Honda filter . (Oil change last performed by dealership from previous owner). Anyone else run into this? What does everyone use for thei 2012 vintage vehicle thanks

This Mobil 1 Filter is one of the best filters out there. It's just under $10 at Wal-Mart.

Ok...ordered the purolator l14610 after researching around here.
The L14610 is rated by Purolator for up to 5K miles.
The PL14610 is rated by Purolator for up to 10K miles - and has better filtering capability.
Given that a typical oil change interval is 7,500 miles, why wouldn't you choose the PL14610 filter?

Where exactly did you research this info? most here would use a much better brand of filter .. but it's your Pilot .. use what you want

I second the Mobil1 oil filter... it does a nice job for me and is available at my local Wal Mart where I get the Mobil 1 oil.

M1 has been in my vehicles since day one no thoughts on changing it now to a different brand.Now I found a new need for it ..it works great in lubricating the wheel bearings on 3d printers .. so those who are in a pinch while printing out those covid 19 materials . Mobile 1 works awesome and it lasts a real long time.

Search for fitments for the Honda S2000 cars. They use the longer filter, with the same mounting threads and gasket dims. The local WalMart stopped carrying the Bosch D3312 I like, and I see they are disappearing from the market. When I use up my remaining supply, the M1 might be the next choice. Oil (M1) gets changed here at 50% life or annually, whether it needs it or not.

One of the German garage-mates uses a full-size Mahle filter that would fit perfectly if it weren't for that skid bar in the way. Mounting the same, pressure relief really close, but a couple inches too long. Would have cut my spare filters inventory by maybe 20%?. Oh well.

I don't stock almost anything anymore for this very reason. The '14 Traverse, '15 Pilot, '08 Sonata, '61 Impala and new to the fleet '01 325Ci all take different oil and filters and transmission fluid and EVERYTHING. So I buy when I need the parts.

Oh yea, forgot to mention I also care for a '69 Camaro (same filter but much nicer oil for the high performance engine over the Impala), '15 Wrangler, '18 GLC300, '10 Yukon XL Denali and now a '20 Sierra. Those are just my parents' cars. Then my MIL has a '14 Sonata, my BIL and his fiancee have a '16 Veloster and a '17 Outlander Sport.

I'd need an extra garage just for consumables if I were to stock parts for any of them!

I'm just really tired of changing these puny oil filters all the time. I'm seriously looking into the CAT Conversion Kit.

Yea I'll pass... if these effectively do the job (which they do) why would I need such overkill?

I knew you were joking with the CAT filter... but the amount of stress I see on the various forums about filters and oils and transmission fluids is amazing and is why I stopped overthinking it. Quality brand? Others have had favorable results? Readily available locally? Full synthetic? Good to go.

Yes. I've been able to reduce my oil changes with the Mobil 1 Filter and using their extended life FS oil. It's saving us $ and time. I could buy the WIX standard filter on RockAuto and save a few bucks on 9 vehicles, but I'm afraid to change to it from Mobil 1. So the question is, can it go 8 to 10k miles?

If only the oil testing labs could do filters too! Then you would know for sure.

Maybe I'm wrong but I generally follow what the oil change life monitor on the vehicle says, I try to change it around 25% or so but I don't freak out if it goes long. I take comfort in using a high quality oil and filter.

For modern cars that are sealed up real well, it has been proven that full synthetic oil can go longer between changes than what automakers recommend. Lots of folks are changing their oil out to soon. Buying a better oil filter like the Mobil 1 Extended Performance made with synthetic fiber (instead of cellulose) is the extra insurance. Mobil 1 claims I can go 20k, with their Extended Performance Oil, I'm going no longer than 10k.

I was buying the Bosch "distance" filters on a recommendation from the group here when I got the car. They were shelf stock at the local Walmart so no need to use my own real estate. They stopped carrying the Bosch filters a year or two or three ago, so I had some delivered on a brown truck. I have one left. Did swing by Walmart this morning for the oil, and see that they do carry the M1 filters so will likely change to those with next oil swap.

Opinions on best oil, best filter and best change interval are all over the map. For the average owner or lessee, whatever the quick-change or dealer uses is great. They won't own the car long enough to ever see a payback from a synthetic oil upgrade, and any filter that doesn't leak will get them to trade-in time. I maintain mine as part of the min 250k service life plan.

I'm intrigued by the Camaro gets better oil than the Impala. Spin-on adapter on the older car so it can use the same filter I'll guess. The 'older cars don't need the good oil' contrasts with 'older cars get older really fast when you slack off on maintenance' experience. They tend to get driven less frequently too, so have drier dry starts that better oils can help with. The Pilot came home from the dealer, onto the lift for an oil change. Another a couple hundred miles later and at least another before it hit 1k. Under $100 for all that cheap front-loaded insurance. I think it was at about 45k on its seventh birthday last October.

The Pilot hasn't needed even gas since January or so, and averaging maybe 5k/yr since we left the L.A. area. It's still above half a tank when I drove it this morning. Got a full spring-cleaning (they were dirty!) and detail, looking good before getting the cover in a week or two as a summer toy comes out of hibernation. Full service before it gets the shelf of course.
