if you reside in a cold climate winter ( teens and below) use 5w20 in winter 10w30 in summer ......mild winter climate you can go with 10w30 all year around,, any major brands will do,, key is to change oil + filter in 3000-3500 miles ,,buy regular oil,, no need to spend the extra money for more expensive oils,,
Take a look in the DIY section before asking for help.

I agree with DH.
Although i do use Valvoline Maxlife Synthetic Blend in my Accord. It costs $17.50 for a 5 gallon jug at WalMart though so it really isn;t "expensive" in my opinion. Does it actually do anything better than regular oil? Probably not, but I started using it when I first bought the car and I don't want to switch.
