Default Which motor oil to get

Hey all,

I'm about to get my oil changed for the first time in my 2007 Nissan Maxima, but I don't know which oil is the best choice. Anyone here have any ideas????

Synthetic Oil is the best for a new car, but do it yourself, a Synthetic oilchange is 60 bucks at Jiffy Lube!

On a new car, I would use a full synthetic oil, not a blend. Mobil 1 and Royal Purple are good, and I know that Napa offers a full synthetic in their private brand, which is bottled by Valvoline (Ashland oil company). My dad uses the Napa brand synthetic in his truck, since he just rebuilt the engine. It is also much less expensive than Mobil or Royal Purple.

I use Valvoline - not terribly expensive, and good quality.
