    I think you could safely use sae 5w20. Just pick a good brand name and you will be fine. The only time I would be real concerned about being exact on oil spec would be a turbo model. If just a non-turbo model you could even use a 5w30 even a 10w30 in an emergency. Only my opinion and welcome to the forum! SNO

    You have an owner's manual, right?
    READ IT!

    Honestly.. These forums aren't got your general car maintenance questions.
    Let alone the Suggestions/Comments forum (not that any of the powers that be give a rat's *** about any suggestions made here).
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Moving to off topic as this has nothing to do with carpc's, tablets or their ilk.
