What is the 2017 Hyundai Sonata oil type?
My girlfriend just bought a 2017 Sonata, and I’m helping her gather what she needs for maintenance. What kind of oil does her car take?

How thoughtful of you!
The 2017 Hyundai Sonata takes 5W-20 motor oil. We recommend opting for fully synthetic oil, which needs changing every 7,500 to 10,000 miles and is generally healthier for your engine. Conventional oil is fine, too—it’s cheaper, but you’ll need to change it more often.
The car owner’s manual or the oil cap on the engine should be marked with the type of oil your vehicle needs. Now you know where to check on the fly!
Speaking of staying on top of your car’s maintenance, don’t forget to stay on top of your car insurance, too. Luckily, when you shop for a policy with Jerry, we do all the work for you—whether it’s sourcing you personalized quotes from 55+ providers or doing the paperwork and calls to set up your new policy. Heck, we even help you cancel your old policy if you decide to switch!
And the savings are no joke: an average of over $800 a year.
