What type of oil should be used on a 2010 Ford Focus?

My brother Harold has unofficially gifted his used Ford Focus to my son (Harry’s back in jail. He just couldn’t stop crime-ing.) Now my son will use his car to learn how to drive and take care of a vehicle. What type of oil should be used on a 2010 Ford Focus?

A 2010 Ford Focus’s oil type is 5W-20 motor oil.
Your son’s new-to-him focus requires 5 quarts of oil. Ford specifically recommends Mobil 1 Extended Performance High Mileage 5W-20 Full Synthetic Motor Oil.
Maintaining a car’s oil is key to its optimal performance and longevity. Here’s when to change the oil:
  • Change the oil every 7,500 to 10,000 miles, as synthetic oil lasts longer than conventional.
  • Your son should check the oil regularly—it should be amber or light brown in color.
  • If the oil is dark brown or black, the engine is making strange sounds, or you smell burning oil or smoke while driving, change that oil!
While it’s unfortunate your brother Harold is back in the big house, his loss is your son’s gain. Be sure your son protects his Focus with a robust car insurance policy by using Jerry. The average Jerry user saves more than $800 per year on car insurance!
