Conventional oil or synthetic recommended for this make and model plz and thanks

According to the 2013 Altima Owner’s Manual, you can use either conventional or synthetic oil in the Altima. Just be sure to use the correct viscosity and only oil that meets Nissan’s quality (certification) requirements. See page 9-6 of the Manual for full details. However, I would absolutely not use conventional motor oil in this (or frankly any) vehicle. The technical and engineering advantages of synthetic oil are now well established and so there is no reason to use a lesser quality product at this point. See, just as one example, AAA’s recent study comparing synthetic and conventional oils.
