    Going to do first oil change soon and am thinking Mobil 1 factory velocity. Factory filter. The local dealer charged a friend for a oil change on his Highland and did not change it so i don’t trust them with the free toyota care.

    I've heard really good things about the Amazon basics full synthetic. I've been using it with good luck so far. It's cheap too. Project farm did some tests on it and it is supposed to be really good.

    Still in planning phase ...
    As long as its the right weight and full synthetic, start with factory recommended and then Castro or Valvoline ... out of habit.

    Super Tech is a very good oil at a great price point. I don’t think Mobil 1 is what it once was.

    I used Castrol GTX for many years and never had any engine issues in any of my vehicles. Even when I had 2 crappy S-10s.

    Mobil 1 because it's very inexpensive with the $12 Rebates, my complete oil change with Toyota filters are less than $20.

    Same here, grab a couple at a time and stash away so you always have it.

    Warren produces both Amazon Basics and SuperTech. Pretty much the same product. Both are quality oils

    The Fram Ultra is considered by many of the experts on Bobistheoilguy site to be the best filter you can buy. I use them often.....whichever is on sale between the Ultra and the M1
