I know hondas are picky on tranny and power steering fluid but what about brake? Do you really need to use honda heavy duty dot 3 or will about any off the shelf 3 do? Also would 4 be needed for a somewhat aggressive driver or should i stick with 3? It won't see any track use just maybe some back road fun. I've found some conflicting stuff online so just seeing if anyone has a positive answer.

I've used Honda brake fluid, clutch fluid, and transmission fluid.

I consider my self a pretty aggressive driver at times but nothing like the track and I feel better sticking with Honda brands.

I use Motul

I do a lot of aggressive mountain driving and had a recent trip to Tail of the Dragon and I replaced my brake pads with EBC Yellows and my fluid with Motul RBF600 Synthetic DOT 4 Brake Fluid.

Wonderful stuff, I ran it for 3 years in my Civic and never had issues, doubt i'll have any long term issues in the TSX. Just my 2cents
