Honda Accord LX: Best Oil Brand?

Q. Hi, I have a 1992 Honda Accord LX with 142,000 miles on it. I am a poor college student and want to keep my car running as long as possible! So I thought that Pennzoil was the best motor oil to use after all the hype that I've heard, the million mile truck, etc, but my mechanic told me recently that Pennzoil is bad for foreign cars and that I should use Castrol or Valvoline instead. Is this true?


Honda Accord LX: Best Oil Brand?

A. I never heard of Pennzoil being bad for foreign cars Angela. But I have been using Castrol 10W30 in my Nissan Van since it was brand new and it now has over 200,000 miles on it. It get's an oil and filter change every 3,000 miles and to oil comes out as clean as it went in.
