What is the 2009 Honda CR-V oil type?

I have a 2009 Honda CR-V that’s still kicking, and I want to switch from taking it to the mechanic for oil changes to doing them myself. What kind of oil does it take?

, the recommended oil type is a 5W-20 synthetic motor oil like Mobil 1 - Advanced Full Synthetic 5W-20 Motor Oil. Synthetic oil isn’t mandatory for most vehicles but it can lengthen intervals between oil changes and improve your Honda’s engine performance.
Along with doing an oil change, here are some other maintenance items you may want to check:
  • Oil filter replacement
  • Fluid level checks and corrections
  • Tire inflation check and correction
  • Brake component inspection
  • Reset maintenance counter
  • Wiper inspection
