Re: 2010 2.4 Oil Change question
Use the recommended 5w-30 or during the winter run 0w-30.
Oil change intervals are purely opinion oriented. I have and always will do the first oil change at around 1,000 miles. After that it's based on whether I have an oil life monitor, or not. If I do, I'll use the oil life monitor and change when it tells me to. If I do not have an oil life monitor I'll usually change per the owners manual. On my Mazda that was every 5 months or 5,000 miles. Ultimately choose what you feel comfortable with. Everyone will have a different opinion on when you should change.

Capitalization & punctuation is the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse." and "I helped my uncle jack off a horse."
