Im going to by a Cabrio 2002 with 124,000 ***** *****. The car is in Puerto Rico but Im going to bring it to Pennsylvania where I live. What kind of motor oil should I use? Can I use synthetic?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I went to Advance Auto and their computer say that the Cabrio use 5w50 or 10w50. Auto Zone says is 5w30 or 5w40. So Im confuse. Can you clarify which is the correct motor oil for my Cabrio 2002?
