Asked by Jul 10, 2017 at 12:42 PM about the 2013 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2013 Hyundai Sonata calls for 5W20 weight all year, would it make sense to increase the weight slightly in July & August. I'm looking for other opinions.

you can go up to 5w30 safely and I would recommend a synthetic for best performance.

If your car is not using oil I would not worry. I use 5W-20 year round in my work truck with no issues in 188,000 miles.

F_O_R all vehicles use oil.
