So I put on 5000 km and I tend to change out the oil a little early.

Plus I want the full synthetic in..


Discovered the 2013 takes more oil. 6 full liters 6.4 qt now the 2010 was 5.2 liters/ 5.5qt


Knew something was going on when I was dumping the old oil and it ran over the top of my recycle jugs.

More oil is better.

Just did my SV6, it bugs me when the bottle is a 5 litre and the car only needs 3.8 L.  Happy

Finally, my first oil change.  Computer says I have 40% oil life left with 3700 miles on car.  I would have liked to changed earlier but weather and lack of time played a factor.   I am using Penzoil full syn. with a Fram filter (could not find P63 in my area so I will order a couple  online for the next time).
