Default Oil Change Question

Bought my Insight in October 2018. Have about 4300 miles on it.

Got a note from the dealer saying time for an oil change.

Is it?

And they mentioned regular oil. I used to put synthetic in my old SUV (but it was 14 years old!).

I would find another dealer.
OIl changes will be dictated by the dash readings. "Service light" or whatever. EVERYONE uses Synt. oil in the new cars now.

Where are you located?

You won't need an oil change until around 10K miles. The service light will come on to alert you. Your Insight uses 0W-20 oil which is ONLY available in synthetic. Find another dealer.
