Granted, mine put Pennzoil in it… Just follow your oil life monitor, just know that it is also due to be changed at one year mark, so if you drive less than 8-10K miles a year, you have to go with the yearly schedule. Braking was precise and will instill a lot of confidence in people going for a test drive.
I don't know where designers are getting the idea that this is a good look, but the new Jeep Compass has a similar bumper treatment. Sometimes I think they get so caught up in the size they forget about the utility. Do not compare to models before 2008. Do not go by vehicle's oil life monitor when using this oil.
