kind of oil to be used for oil change

Asked by Sep 11, 2019 at 07:09 PM about the 2014 Nissan Altima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What kind of oil should be used when changing the oil on a 2014 Nissan Altima. I was charged $80.00 today and told that it was because the oil must be 0W20. Is this true or did I get ripped off? I went in for the $19.99 ladies day speical.

You need synthetic oil in your car. 5W20 should also work but I doubt it is any cheaper. Shop around for a better price.


Basically they up charged you and got you to come in on the special deal. Get the price in writing before you commit them removing the oil.
