Does my 2008 Honda Civic need Honda coolant?

Do I have to use Honda coolant on my Honda civic

No. I never have on my 1999 Honda. But if you can accept the higher price, you are getting some peace of mind for it.

No.

Just use a coolant that states for all makes/models.

They’re called global/universal coolants.

Tester

No; but use good long lasting synthetic coolant; look for a sale on “extended life” coolant
