is Mobil 1 Annual Protection safe for cars?


#2

Of course it is . But in your manual it says what oil to use , how many miles between oil changes or how much time. I would expect it to read 6000 miles or 6 months or something like that. Also Kia has one of the better drive line warranties so why would you not do what the factory recommends.


#3

Your Kia has a 10 year 100000 mile powertrain warranty. I think it call for oil changes twice a year or at specific mileages which ever comes first.

If you want to use the Mobile 1 annual protection so you can change your oil only once a year, you will absolutely void your warranty.

Your car doesn’t even require synthetic oil, you can use it but you can’t extend you drain intervals under the warranty.


#4

Once again we are comparing maximizing oil life vs. maximizing engine life. Follow the owner’s manual and have your engine last a happy and safe life.

If you want to use synthetic, make sure it is the right weight (viscisty) for your car and do not extend the oil change interval.


#5

Kia’s 10 year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty only applies to the original owner. If OP purchased the Optima new all advice given is valid.


#6

Yes, but the second owner get a 5 year 60,000 mile powertrain warranty.
