I would not. Your Kia will do just fine with ANY 5w-30 oil for many thousands of miles. They changed the filter so we KNOW that. As far as what oil used? PP is sorta dark as it comes out (darker than Pennzoil YB) but REALLY, it does not matter. I change my own oil as I want to know that it was done right. Any oil used is better than what came out so rest easy and get on with it. No need to WASTE the oil and filter that was paid for. Take care, Bill PS: COLOR does not matter when trying to figure out how "spent" or how "well" the oil is doing. I WISH everyone would get this straight....
