Given your location, I think I'd use 5w30, based on this.

Yeah, that's my decision moving forward. Nothing against XW20 for vehicles primarily engineered to run on that viscosity, or going with 5W20 in this same vehicle in the far north during winter, but I read it the same way you do. I used 5W20 without issue in my previous Hyundai 2.4 but will go a different route this time.

That "higher viscosity engine oils are required for satisfactory lubrication in hot weather" never bothered me before. It does now.

What not stick with 5W30 for both Hyundai's, given your warm climate.

There is no question that modern engines last a very long time on uber-thin oils. However, many manufacturers, including Hyundai have suffered unnecessary warranty claims due to the use of thin oils coupled with extended drain intervals. Many, possibly even most, drivers do not understand that their operations fall under the "severe" category that includes more frequent oil changes. Things like many short trips, towing, extended high speed operation (many people speed) , extended idling and so on. These things are spelled out in the owners manual, and often ignored.

It's easy to discount the sentence that states higher viscosity is required for operation in high temperatures. South Florida people continue to use 5W-20 oil in over 100 degree temps (at the road surface) , while going 90MPH down the highway, and expect good results. Then they become annoyed when the balancer chain fails, the timing chain wears out, the cam phasers knock like an old diesel engine and so on.

It's very telling when Ford requires 10W-50 in their "trak-pak" vehicles with the exact same engine as the normal version of the car (which requires 5W-20) Heat and heavy use require sufficient viscosity. Twas always so.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

In Florida I'd be running 10W-30 in both of them and it would be full synthetic.

My daughter has a 2012 Sonata and son in law has a 2009; both with the 2.4 engine. I'll use 5w20 if I have it from a sale, but most of the time these two get 5w30. I remember seeing in the manual that these engines are good with any oil, any viscosity.

5w30 & 10w30 only in mine. Itíll never see a 5w20 or 0w20, it just isnít necessary.

My sister lives in Phoenix and one brother in Tucson. 120F isn't uncommon, so i completely understand.

Getting Wemay to run 10W-30 would be a major breakthrough. I'd go out and buy a lottery ticket that day.

Seems like the verbiage is pushing the owner towards 5/10W30 for a warm climate.
If you wanted to use the same oil for your wife's car, though, I don't think you're ever going to see a dexos1 Gen 2 10W30...whether that is a concern is totally up to you! I know that you are keeping up with LSPI developments for DIT engines.

I have to disagree with everyone. Either one will work fine, use what you want. I doubt you or the car will notice a difference. I dont think your climate makes much of a difference even if you use 5w20.
