You will get different answer's and opinions, go by the what Hyundai says in their maintenance schedule. But 5000 miles is a good number to be on the safe side.

I like 7,500 or 1 year using synthetic motor oil. If you do lots of stop and go or short trips then go 5,000 miles or 1 year. If using conventional oil I would also go 5,000 miles or 1 year. Always use the manufacturer recommended grade (weight) of oil.

Some of the suggested mileage before changing oil and filter on a 2013 Hyundai Sonata is too much, every 3000 miles or 3 months whatever comes first. This suggestion is the safest and will give you the most piece of mind. Who would want to have oil that's 6000 miles old in July and August heat, it's 5W20 to begin with.
