Does the Compass use the Regular 5W30 / 10W30 oils?

I thought I remembered reading somewhere that the Caliber used a different Oil weight.

Anyone used this? Apparently it's a Replacement for 5W20.

I have not seen 0W20 in a 4/5 L bottle. I have seen the 5W20. I used to put synthetic in my truck but I got tired of paying twice as much for each oil change. I don't keep vehicles long enough to get the investment back ;-)

I just get whatever is cheaper at Canadian Tire. Quaker State / Castrol / etc. I stay away from the Motomaster crap though!

I'm hoping that I can find the Mobil 1 Full Synthetic 5W20 in the 5 Litre bottle.

How much oil does the Compass take? My current car (2002 Neon) takes 4.4 Litres (with the filter in)

The Mobile 5-20 oil is a synthetic blend. The dealership Mopar oil is Mobile oil. I was told that to use pure symthetic oil would be to no advantage. So I can't see spending double for an oil change I do every 3,000 miles, which makes oil changes rather costly for me.
MotorCraft oil also has a 5-20 w as well. I still like Mobile and intend to stick with it, if I can. :D

My service manual says that I only need to change the oil every 10,000Km. I think the 2008's have longer oil change intervals than the 2007's.

Just wanted to let you all know that Wal-Mart has Mobil 1 5W-20 Full Synthetic Oil in the 5 Litre bottle. It costs about $37.

Not exactly. See my previous oil change blog post:

Interesting. My 2008 manual just says to change it every 10,000Km. The seperate service manual (the one that you tear the pages out of after a service) has 10,000Km intervals too.

If they are putting synthetic in then the oil changes are longer in between.

No 10,000Km is with Regular Oil. All 2008's are on a 10,000Km maintenance cycle.
