For an automatic, don't use anything less than HondaATF, it is more harmful to the Transmission, and will not shift as smoothly if you use any others.

anyone ever use synthetic ATF?
i seen the Mobil 1 synthetic ATF but its about CDN$8.00 for a 1 L bottle. Does it make a difference for the better?
another qwestion : how often do you change your ATF?

Don't use synthetic, its too slippery and you will have tranny problems if you use it.

For the automatic transmission USE ONLY HONDA FLUID. No substitutions. The Service Manual calls for replacement every 24 months or 30,000 miles. I do mine every year.
