Engine oil

What type of oil was used from the factory on the v6? Natural or synthetic? I've been having oil changes done at dealer, but want to do it myself this time. Just want to be sure what was used. I may go to synthetic anyway. Not sure yet.

It really doesn't matter what was used. You can use whatever you want and switch it up if you want.

Yep, good 'ol 5W-30. You can go to synthetic if your pockets are a little deeper, but dino is just fine.
