2018 Hyundai Sonata Oil Type

I just bought a 2018 Hyundai Sonata, and I’m getting ready to do my first oil change on it. I’m a bit new to maintaining my own car, so I want to make sure I’m using the best oil type for this model. The owner’s manual suggests a few options, but I’m curious to hear from other Sonata owners about what oil they’ve had the best experience with.

Are there any brands you prefer? Also, does anyone have tips on whether synthetic or conventional oil is better for this car? Any advice on oil filters would be great too!

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata typically takes 0W-20 full synthetic oil. This type of oil is specially formulated to provide optimal protection for your engine. It flows easily at low temperatures, making it ideal for cold climates and reducing wear and tear.

I will always go for synthetic oil rather than conventional oil because offers improved engine protection, extended drain intervals, and enhanced fuel efficiency.
