Hello,

I recently purchased a 2017 SFS 2.0T, and wanted to know if there is a general preference on oil brand and filters that everyone is using? Usually I go with the purolator filters, and get whatever synthetic is on sale, but thought I would ask if there is a recommended type to get.

Thanks,

I do my own changes, 1st change I used what was recommended in manual (Quaker State 10w30 for summer) and filter/washer from Hyundai. I took it in for the 2nd change to the dealer as it had tire rotation and a couple other things I didn't want to do and they used 5w-30 penzoil. Be sure to get a new crush washer when you go to the dealer to get the filter. The manual is very confusing about it, seems they really don't want you to find the recommendations easily. Pay attention to the manual calls for synthetic or non-synthetic.

Thanks. Did not appear a definite recommendation for synthetic oil in the manual.

I am guessing with oil being so good these days, synthetic is not needed if you
follow the maintenance schedule without varying from it.
