Looks like Mobil? 5w20 ?? I had them upgrade to synthetic on my change and was charged $18 for the upgrade to synthetic.. Looks like you will have to ask them to clarify.. but not to worry.. you can always get it the next change.. No harm done..Just had my first oil change done by the dealer, I requested synthetic oil and said I’ll pay for it, looked at the invoice and it says 00279- mb5w2 . Is that synthetic? All the web say is that it is Toyota oil.
The se and sel are going to be less picky on oil since LSPI is less of a problem compared to the 1.6t. So that oil should be just fine. I also found that to be Toyota oil which is very strange as Hyundai I thought almost primarily uses Quaker State. I would have expected Quaker ultimate durability 5w20 if you asked for synthetic. I am going to guess they ran out or the receipt part number is wrong and being used as a place holder.
At my local Walmart they have Quaker State ultimate durability for $20. They also have the Hyundai OEM oil filter for $6.I’m going to have to believe they use the oil I asked for, next time I’ll do it myself, saw a gallon of Castrol full synthetic for gdi engines and turbos at Walmart for $26. Even though my kona is a regular 2.0 gdi engine . Any idea what size oil filter wrench is for the Hyundai kona filter?
I had a GMC Terrain with a DI engine. I had an issue from day one due to the 8 to 10% fuel in the oil. I did UOA's at every oil change and even the company GMC told me to send a sample because they didn't believe the analyzer I used. They all came back saying that was not acceptable, but GM said that was normal. I told the service manager if he would let me bring a pint or 2 of gas and pore it into his oil. He said ABSOLUTELY NOT. That's one of the reasons why I got rid of the Terrain.
I said I would never buy another car with a DI engine and here I am with another one. I think most cars now have DI engines. At least I have a 10 year warranty as dklanecky1 said.
I will never use anything but FULL synthetic oil in any of my vehicles. I use to be an Amsoil dealer because it was worth it to me because I used so much oil.
I will use any name brand synthetic oil after my prepaid service contract is over.
I still have a few oil filters for my 2001 Tiberon, Does anyone know if I can use those filters in the Kona???
What? What worst oil filter...Fram?
Yes, then we agree, Fram Ultras are top tier oil filters. They have even better rated "media" then your Amsoil ones. It's about the MEDIA you know!! There are NOT a dozen better oil filters then the Fram Ultra, it is he top 3 oil filters made. They are Rotal Purple, Amsoil and Fram Ultra for the tie, with Fram's specs a hair better. WIX regulars are not that good of filters, they may be built good, but they don't filter that good. and XP's are known to be oil flow restrictive, so a big no on a Hyundai with their "oil film boundary layer issue on almost all their engines and luckily for us the 1.6T has the least of those issues.I doubt the guy cut open a filter, stuffed cardboard material in it, welded it back up and then cut it open again to show the crap inside.
I'll still take the word of dozens of mechanics and other comparisons not just this one guy.
Why even remotely take a chance when there are dozens of better filters out there for only a few pennies more.
People go to ridiculous lengths to use top tier gas and then use inferior oil filters?? Doesn't make sense.
End caps don't make the filter, the filtering media by far is the most important component.
Bottom line is use what makes you feel comfortable. For me it's Amsoil or Wix
