The MM just came on in my '08 CR-V. The oil life indicator is at 15%. I have about 9,000 miles on it, and this will be my first oil change. I'm going out of town tomorrrow (driving the CR-V about 130 miles away). Do I need to take my CR-V in for the oil change and tire rotation before I leave, or is it something that can wait until I get back on Monday?
When I do get it changed, should I take it to the dealer? I would rather take it somewhere else if it would be OK. I want to use good oil so I can keep getting lots of miles between changes. What kid of oil should I use? The manual says 5w20 and that Honda oil is recommended (of course). If I don't go to the dealership, though, what kind of oil should I ask for?
