REQUIRED ENGINE OIL: Oil is a major contributor to your engine’s performance and longevity. Your vehicle is equipped with a high-performance turbocharged engine that requires the use of synthetic motor oil. Always use Mobil 1® 5W-30 or an equivalent oil that meets the HTO-06 standard. Not all synthetic oils will meet this standard. Only use oils that display the HTO-06 standard on the label.

Failure to use Mobil 1® or an equivalent oil that meets the HTO-06 standard can lead to a reduction in engine performance or durability, and can cause engine damage not covered by your warranty.
