What is the 2017 Lexus IS300’s oil type?

I bought a used 2017 Lexus IS300 because it had low miles and a great price. However, my husband unexpectedly got laid off. To save money, I’m going to try changing the oil myself—what type of oil do I need for a 2017 Lexus IS300?

If you want to change the oil yourself, and save money on your car expenses at the same time, your 2017
Lexus IS300
will need SAE 0W-20 motor oil.
If you can’t find that type of motor oil, you can also use 5W-20 motor oil—just make sure to switch back to 0W-20 on your next oil change.
You’ll need at least 6.8 quarts of oil to properly complete the oil change.
