My thinking is YES, especially living where it get quite hot. Our good friends just traded in their '07 Pilot on a new '18 Pilot. They often used 10W30, though not regularly, in our summers here in western NY. However others will chime in with more accurate info.

That's the 3.5L V6 right?

In Australia they say to use 5W30 or 10W30 or 10W40 in that engine.

You will be fine.

Iíll piggyback on this thread-

I have a 2001Toyota Camry 2.2L that takes 5W-30 and a 2010 Honda Odyssey 3.5L that takes 5W-20. Could I theoretically use MaxLife Synthetic Blend 5W-30 in both? Would there be any benefit to running a 30 in the Odyssey? Iíve never tried it.

105k on the Odyssey (sees about 9k/year, two oil changes per year), 140k on the Camry (3k/year, two oil changes per year; short-tripper).

I view a good 10w30 as the closest thing to a universal oil these days. It generally will work very well in almost anything, even though it's not in vogue around here.

12 KIA Sedona 91k - PP HM 10w30
09 Ford Focus 131k - Supertech FS HM 5w30
00 Chev Lumina 201k - Supertech FS HM 5w30
04 Jeep Grand Cherokee gone but not forgotten.
