    I have seen 2 work orders where the dealer claims to have used 5 qt.s of 0W-20 oil (1 on my car and 1 from a poster on Facebook). My owners manual claims capacity is 3.7 qt when a new filter is used. In my case the dipstick showed it was not overfilled. What is with the 5 qt claim?

    I have been changing the oil on my V ever since the free dealer oil change ended.

  20. 2010 Towing capacity

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I have a 2010 AWD, EX 4 cylinder. Manual says 1500 lb towing. Sites online report Europe the towing capacity is more. I want to buy a small trailer to go camping. 1500 lbs doesn't give many options. Any advise on camping trailers. And if 1500 is exceeded the risk.
