  1. Hello, great question, here are some things you can do 1. Change the oil to a high performance synthetic 2. Always check fluid levels every month or so 3. Look to see at what mileage you need to change transmission, coolant, brake fluid, power steering 4. Drive it with kindness, not harshly 5. Put the proper gasoline in it, if it requires 87 octane, do not put 89 and vice versa 6. When taking it to a mechanic, have them check out everything/do an inspection at least each year. Hope this is useful, if you want top fluids you can find them here, you did not mention if you have a 1.5 or a 2.0 engine in your 2020 Civic. If you have a 1.5 use this link for the proper oil and capacity in quarts: https://www.searchforparts.com/oil-change/honda-2020-civic-1.5l-l15b7-turbo if you have a 2.0 then here are the fluids and products for your civic https://www.searchforparts.com/oil-change/honda-2020-civic-2.0l-k20c2
  2. my 2020 Accord is in the shop for a week for many upgrades and interior work, so I bought oil to flush the engine as well. I did not take a filter and this is the oil I bought which has two filters that are compatible with the oil https://www.searchforparts.com/oil-change/honda-2020-accord-1.5l-l15be-turbo Should I order one of them and take it or just let the shop put in whatever filter, not sure if it matters or the disadvantages of having a regular filter with a synthetic?
  3. I saw a similar thread on a Ford forum and I learned tons since I own a Ford as well. Interesting to see what everyone does to their vehicle! ok so I will start... I have a 2014 Honda civic 1.8L and I changed the oil, filter, transmission and coolant with all of these products. https://www.searchforparts.com/oil-change/honda-2014-civic-1.8l-r18a9 I like the fact that they put all products on one page, especially for the filter, I can easily get any synthetic oil on Amazon or anywhere else by knowing the weight but the filter lookup is a pain sometimes. Also ordered these mirrors by Kool Vue https://www.carparts.com/mirror/kool-vue/ho05el?&vehicle[cylinders]=4&vehicle[liter]=1.8&vehicle[submodel]=LX&vehicle[model]=Civic&vehicle[make]=Honda&vehicle[year]=2014 The mirrors are all dented and scratched from the previous owner and I never got around to it. May paint them myself. ok your turn!
  4. I don't think buffing it or rubbing compound is going to help. I had the hood fade on a previous vehicle, and MAACO painted it for cheap. You won't get the best paint but you wont get the worst. They may be able to do a partial paint job on the section in your picture, not sure but it is worth looking for the local MAACO in your area and ask. Or actually any body shop but MAACO should be cheaper. hope this helps.
