What's the best oil to use in a 2013 Mazda CX-5, how often should it be changed and does the drain plug washer need to be replaced with each change?

Supposedly you need to run 0w20 and they say full syn needed but thats a given. 7500 oci
A certified mazda facility should be used
Change proceedure is not in the om.

A triangular panel with two bolts and a plastic clip hised the filter and drain bolt.
I dont know about the washer but ive reused my cars a few times without leaks.
