    I use 5w20 synthetic blend and a Kia oil filter and change it every 5,000 miles.

    Last oil change was 5W20 Penzoil Synthetic and a Mobil 1 special fancy pantsy filter(Sssshh, don't tell Kia). Easiest car I have ever done oil changes on!

    I did the first oil change at about 1,600 miles and will do the second oil change at 5,000. I used a synthetic blend oil for the first change since everything is still breaking in, but I will permanently switch to Mobil1 5W-20 full synthetic and Mobil1 filter at 5,000 and thereafter.

    I'm going to let the dealer do it every 3k. Their filter and their oil, which they tell me is 5W-20 semi-synthetic. They always run online discount coupons for a 19.99 change and I can sit and BS with the salesman while I wait.

    I change my own oil in my 08 HHR every 5k, and I just switched over to 5W-30 semi-synthetic.

    My father bought it new from the dealership......always had it changed every 3000 miles with Valvoline dino oil. When I got it from him at 42,000 miles I switched to 5W-20 Royal Purple full synthetic with the Kia OEM filter every 5000 miles.
