Use Honda's oil. The manual also says too. It might not benefit your car but just to be on the safe side

Use genuine Honda ATF. Your car originally used Z1 but now only the new synthetic version is carried by dealers. Dexron or related fluids won't hurt the transmission but it will shift harshly. Never flush Honda transmissions (and there is no filter to change) - just drain and fill.
