What is the Toyota Scion TC’s oil type?

With current inflation prices, I’m trying to cut back where I can—and that includes going to the shop to get my oil changed. I’m going to start doing it myself, but what type of oil does a Toyota Scion TC take?

Not a bad idea! A Toyota
Scion TC’s
oil type is a high mileage 5W-20 synthetic oil. A high-mileage 5W-30 synthetic oil will also work. Most Scion TCs hold four quarts of oil and you’ll need to change it out every 5,000 to 10,000 miles to keep your engine functioning properly.
