I joined to find out what weight oil everybody was using, I have been taking it to the dealer but tried a local oil change and they charged me for the most expensive oil they had and cost $75 for the oil change. For $75 I can get an oil change and tires rotated at the dealer for $75. I's an ex Aircraft mechanic but am disabled and no longer even pop the hood on my cars. It takes me an hour to get where I bought the Compass, traded in a Diesel Gran Cherokee, for the Compass. Maybe it's best to just drive the hour and let the dealer do all the maintenance. Well long winded but hello.

Welcome! I traded in a diesel grand Cherokee as well for my Compass. For the oil, stick with the manufacturer recommended 0W20. These engines are temperamental beasts and using the wrong oil could bring grave results.
