Q: Can I use regular oil instead of synthetic?

asked by on

Can I use regular oil in my 2012 Genisis instead of synthetic?

My car has 83000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If synthetic oil is specified by Hyundai and you’ve used it with your Genesis, then you should continue to use synthetic oil. If conventional oil is specified, then you can use regular or synthetic. If you need to have your oil serviced, consider YourMechanic, as one of our mobile technicians can come do so at your home or office.
