I would use the grade of oil recommended in the owner's manual in a name brand product. If memory serves me correctly your vehicle requires 0w20 synthetic oil. I would personally use Mobil1 or other name brand. Also I personally would change the oil at 7,500 miles or 1 year, whichever comes first. If you do mostly city stop and go driving I would change it at 5,000 miles. Although it certainly doesn't hurt to change it more frequently, it is an unnecessary expense considering today's quality oils and tight vehicle manufacturing tolerances.
Thanks Bob- very helpful- recently within last week got car- learning as I go- thanks again
You will get many different opinions on oil change intervals. Some people still recommend the 3,000 mile oil change. You can't change it too often, but the 3,000 mile oil change is a thing of the past. Enjoy your new vehicle. Also I would recommend staying away from the "quick" lube places and have it serviced at the dealership. Just be careful and don't let the dealership sell you unnecessary add-ons.
