When are you guys going to do your first oil change? Picked up the car today and the dealership recommended the factory change interval of 16000km (Canadian vehicle). I am not sure I want to leave the original oil in that long. Maybe a change at half that mirage for the first change, then regular intervals after that?

With a new car I always try to change the break-in oil between 500 and 1500 miles. Even with the higher quality motor oils in use today, there's still a lot of metal in there from break-in. I'm just about to hit 500 miles and am going to change it in the next week or two.

I want to have something cleared. I have a 2016 scion iM, the book says that it uses 0w-20 and its good for cold weather, and it also says to increase viscosity if driven in high velocities or something about loads. I live in Puerto Rico its always hot here. Should i use 5w-20 instead or i should stay with the 0w-20 even though i dont live in cold weather?

Just keep it simple and follow the manual. 0w-20 works fine.

I had Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 0w-20 and a TRD oil filter for 5,000 miles. I liked it, but nothing really impressive. I just ordered a cheap Purolator filter and a jug of LiquiMolly 0w-20 synthetic, I will have my oil change in about a month (I get oil changes every 5,000 miles despite what our manual recommends).

As far as I understand, 0W-20 only comes in synthetic these days. I haven't yet seen any mineral 0w-20 oil.

Ya, unless you are seeing difficulties, just stick with what the manual says for fluids

I had my LiquiMoly 0W-20 oil change today. I am impressed! My car drives really smooth and solid. Overall, it feels better than Pennzoil Ultra Platinum or standard Mobil oil they use at the dealership. It is available on Amazon and the jug said it is made in Germany.

I'll keep that in mind for when I need to start doing my own.
