no babe the Honda manual states 5-20

Rich, you're wasting your time. I think both of us can read quite well. I would put it down as sort of "entertainment" that jerico40 would waste his time and money to remove oil that Honda recommends for his car. He'll probably have another rant about how he was wronged. :)
Everything worked out and the next oil change will be free. They acknowledged they made the mistake when I asked before they changed the oil for 5-20 weight. I got a free car wash too. So it was a good day.

Agreed...........and it's Rick by the way. Our time was wasted as well trying to explain.

Rick, I have no doubt that he also changes the air in his tires to match the seasons. As football season has started, it will soon be time for him to drive 130 miles roundtrip to inflate his tires with "Fall" air.

Rick, I appreciate your knowledge.

It's good to see that it worked out for you. Even though you seem to have issues with your dealer (get in line! :) ) it seems that they did what they should have by offering you a free oil change. After all you didn't get what was specified, even though the "incorrect" oil has been tested for your car by Honda and is also recommended. The chart in this thread came with a Honda ServiceNews article that you might not have seen since it was posted in a 7th gen thread.

There is also an updated Honda oil application chart that lists 5W-20 & 0W-20 as recommended for 2003 through 2010 Accords.

Times change. You don't really expect Honda to print a new owners manual & issue you a new oil cap when they update their recommendations? :)

babe I think you have the words recommended and acceptable confused as in the oil weights. The oil in the chart that shows 0-20 is only acceptable meaning it will work if you do not have what is recommended. The recommended oil 5-20 is what is in the owners manual. Would you rather fly in a airplane built with parts that were acceptable or a plane with parts that were recommended? This maybe to far off for you to understand. The low weight oil is to get you that 1 mpg extra that might make you want to buy that new HONDA. And the 0-20 bulk oil comes in a oil tank truck that pumps it in the talk at the dealership and the pumped into your engine like a gas pump. I have my concerns about oil contamination from transferring the oil to the truck to deliver it and the transferring it to the dealership bulk tank and the if the oil pump is kept clean. I only had the oil changed there because of the tire road hazard warranty added because of the oil change. I had 2 rear tires get sidewall tire leaks because they are low profile. I would rather change my own oil because I like to fill up the oil filter before putting the new filter own. Remember recommended is better than acceptable. it is real simple. You should not want to just be an acceptable employee or person. If English is not your first language most communities have ESL English as a second language or advanced adult education.

you got your wires crossed get back on subject

Let me make sure I understand this.......the dealer put full synthetic 0W20 in your car and you are driving that distance to have it changed to 5W20? Is that correct?
I never said they put synthetic oil, semi synthetic or regular oil in my car. So you spouting off that you have everything correct you state that I am getting full synthetic oil. Where did you get that information from? Can you just tell me that without the smart remarks that are childish? I just came here to talk about oil.

I'm going to put 0w20 in my 05 accord (recommended 5w20) in a couple weeks when I change the oil.

ALL 0W20 oil is synthetic or, in Honda's brand, a synthetic blend. 5W20 can be conventional, a blend, or full synthetic. You have a great deal to learn about oil, I suggest you start learning immediately rather than embarrassing yourself even further.
Do you really think the dealer poured individual quarts into your crankcase?
