Default Oil Changes

What kind of oil is everyone using? How often are you changing the oil?

I am waiting until the engine life says time to change, and the first one is free at the dealership.

I will wait for the oil change light to light up. I will use the Castrol or Mobil 1 oil. I just purchased the car, so I will have a few months to decide.

keep an eye on the oil as you get closer to that first oil change interval. no harm in changing oil before

Castrol Edge is not bad for full synthetic, and is pretty cheap if you buy at Walmart. I'd probably change the oil before the recommended time, Since its still new and breaking in.

I will keep and eye on it. I am already looking at the cost of the different brands and deciding which one to use. I have under 700 miles on the car, but may change the oil at 1000 to 1500 miles.

If you want really good oil, get motul or royal purple, but even brands like Castrol are good too.

Once I get the car, I'm drivng it home from Louisville, KY to NYC, NY. SO after the first 2,000miles than 3,000 going forward. I only use Valvoline SYNpower Full Synthetic. Been using it in my 2007 Saturn Sky redline with a 2.0 turbo. I drive the car pretty hard time to time. It's a full city car. And I go for 1,000+ mile trips with it two to three times a year. I have over 50,000 miles on the car. It's a great oil. And I will be using it in the Spark.
