My wife caught me mid-sentence as I explained why I decided to change the oil at sunset in 25-degree temps yesterday. My daughter is always up for anything. Her older brother can be the princess at times.

I’ve gotta say in Honda’s defense (which is rare) that they sure do make routine maintenance easy. My Passat took almost an hour with the belly pan, all the fasteners, 6.3 quarts, etc. The only downside is the upside-down filter placement means that about a half quart drains out while you unscrew it, then dribbles all over the subframe afterwards.
