There are hundreds of threads here discussing oil weight (now there's another one, LOL). You'll find a lot of opinions if you try the search feature or look at the list of popular topics.Hey guys,
2023 crosstrek 2.0l 6mt.
I've had it for a month now. It currently has 4,700 miles on it. I purchased the car with 0 miles.
When I do the first oil change, (After I run out of my 4 free dealer changes). I would like to switch to a 0w30 or 5w30 since I live in central Mississippi. It's hot out here.
It would also make me a little more comfortable with fuel dilution.
Will switching to a quality 0w30 or 5w30 void my warranty? (I use mobil1 in everything else.) I didn't really see any specifics in my manual regarding oil weight.
Your manual should specify the recommended oil weight and what can be used if it's not available in your area. Using a different weight won't void the warranty unless you try something egregiously different from the factory specs.
