Sorry about poor display.. This was second oil change since buying used car in order to make sure motor was cleaned well and no unusual metals were present. First short change was not tested. Will change oil/filter at 5000 mi next time and if it still looks good will extend to 7K. PP 5-20 and Kia filter were used again this time.

Running mine 6k on ST syn then back to 5k oci's with VWB. If I could do my own I'd be buying low end group 3. My changes are $10 at AutoTire, plus disposal fee. Have had good luck with 5k changes on a variety of HyunKia's.
