Antifreeze helps your car’s engine run more smoothly. Different kinds of antifreeze work better in certain makes of cars; in a Honda Civic you should ideally use Honda’s brand of antifreeze or an antifreeze of similar quality. Using the wrong antifreeze can negatively impact your car, especially during the colder months.
Honda makes its own specific Honda coolant/antifreeze for use in Hondas, including the Civic. You can purchase the Honda brand of antifreeze at your local Honda or Acura dealer. Check your car’s owner’s manual to determine what specific kind of Honda antifreeze to use in your Civic.
The Prestone brand of antifreeze also works well in Honda Civics and is a good alternative to genuine Honda antifreeze because it helps prevent corrosion and rusting.
