Is everyone here still using 5W-20 even though its summer time? Wouldn't it make more sense to use a 10W30 or something more reasonable for hot weather, regardless of what the owners manual suggest?

While Your PILOT Is Under Warranty....

I'd stick with with Honda recommends. Otherwise, you'd never want to have a problem and have Honda come back to you and say.........

With today's engines being manufactured with such tight tolerances, the improvements in oil, and the overall engine design and fuel mileage considerations, the old strategies regarding oil (lighter in winter, heavier in summer, etc.) no longer work. I'd stick with the 5W20, particularly givem timchen's report of his experience with a heavier oil in another thread.
