    Oil for 2021 Mazda CX-5 Skyactiv 2.5L Turbo

    Here's a thought: if you have nothing constructive to say, why say it? If we all had to just consult the owner's manual, why have such a forum? Not only did I not have the car / owner's manual when I posted my question, but the owner's manual specifies 5W-30. I was hoping to get recommendations...

    Oil for 2021 Mazda CX-5 Skyactiv 2.5L Turbo

    Hey guys, I'm getting a new Mazda CX-5 Skyactiv 2.5L Turbo and I'm not sure what oil I should use. I'd like a 0W-30 to help with faster oil flow and easier startups in winter, but I'd also like a higher HTHS and TBN oil to protect better for 10K Km intervals. A 5W-30 would also be good. It will...

    New VW Rabbit

    It'll be available with the 2.5L 5cyl initially. A TDI engine will probably be introduced in 08 or 09. The 2-door and 4-door GTI (same car, stiffer suspension) is available with the 2.0T engine.

    VW 504/507

    Drew is correct, the 507 spec supercedes the 505.01 spec and can be used in PD-TDI engines. Since our PD-TDIs don't have the oil life monitor, it's good not to push the intervals too far past 10K.

    505.01 Oil

    windnsea00, there is no conclusive evidence that one particular oil is better than the rest, so use whatever is easier to get and/or cheaper. Neil Womack, Schaeffer's is 505.01 rated, but not certified by VW. I don't think VWoA would honor the engine warranty if that oil was used.

    What is wrong with Redline 5W-40?

    Actually the Redline 5W40 is THINNER than the 5W30 at -30C (according to Redline's data), so I would not hesitate to use it in winter. I will use Redline 5W40 in winter (Ottawa and Toronto, ON) in a VW 2.8L V6 and VW TDI engines. I'm sure it'll be just fine. BTW, I used Redline 5W30 in the...

    05 VW 1.9L PD-TDI, Elf DID 505.01, 13,000KM

    Dominik, I got it from a distributor in Markham, but they are not distributing or importing this oil any more unfortunately. I'll get their info once I get home and you can call them to see if they have any oil left. Does this place in Mississauga have Agip 505.01 oil?
