oil grade to use in 2006 spectra.
Hi everyone, had my first oil change done at the dealership. In canada they have a contract with petro canada for there oil. They used 5 w30, anyone here use the 5w20 if yes did you notice any difference in performance, gas milage ETC. I had the oil changed at 4300 kilometers from the factory fill. Shortly after i noticed a increase in milage of about four miles to the gallon. Now i don't no if its the oil or the fact the engine finally loosened up. The factory filled oil seemed to be fairly thick compared to the fresh oil change. Anyways i sure like my spectra. My wife and i test drove ,2006 elantra, civic, yaris,cobalt,corolla.rio, accent. Money was no object in our purchase, so the cheaper price did not sway us either way in our choice in this purchase, and the spectra really earned my respect after the test drive.The lower price was just a bonus. I know the elantra is almost the same car but to me the spectra is a better looking car. Anyways this is my first post here on the forum hopefully not my last. P.S Yes i test drove the honda and toyota and i was not impresed with these cars at all the kia offered better ride more room,almost the same perfomance and this car at speed on the highway was much quieter than the supposedly superior honda and toyota .So the big boys aren't looking over there shoulder anymore, they are now looking kia and hyundai square in the eyes.
