Hello all,

Does a 2018 NX300h use fully synthetic engine oil?

Many thanks.

Yes the correct grade will be in the handbook, and being a 2018 it is likely to be 0w20 oil.

Thank you for the reply but I wanted to know if it uses fully synthetic oil as it just states the grade.

If the car uses 0w20 grade oil this is only made in fully synthetic, but my answer could have been worded better "yes" meaning it is fully synthetic" answering your question, and the rest of my answer was for grade guidelines. Your car should also be suitable for the latest grade of oil for energy conservation "mpg" 0w16. This is reputed to give better ware protection along with higher mpg figures.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
