Going in for my first service tomorrow and wondering what type of oil and viscosity is used generally in the Sorento.
With my other car normally I buy full synthetic 5W30 myself and have someone change it.
I guess this will vary from dealer to dealer but I figured I'd check to see what others have experienced so far. Obviously not expecting full synthetic (unless I paid extra for it).
In the manual they state the following regarding viscosity:
"For better fuel economy, it is recommended to use the engine oil of
a viscosity grade SAE 5W-20 (API SM / ILSAC GF-4). However, if
the engine oil is not available in your country, select the proper
engine oil using the engine oil viscosity chart."
I normally use 5W30 in other vehicles but I guess based on this will see if they can use 5W20.
P.S. Here in Canada we get cold winters so 10W30 wouldn't be a good option.
