Owner's manual says 4.3 quarts without changing filter.
4.5 quarts with filter change.

Most confusing is the recommended viscosity. Either SAE 5W-20 or 0W-20. Not that commonly carried by auto parts stores yet.

'10 TCH, Magnetic Grey Metallic, Moonroof, Heated Leather and NAV
'92 LE I4, 180k original miles, Silver Taupe Metallic, Moonroof, ABS

I searched all over looking for 0W-20 (I didn't want to pay dealership prices).

The only place that carried it was Wal-Mart. (Mobil 1) Some of the stores have it on clearance, and others in my area are just getting it in- and those stores plan on carrying it for a while. I bought enough for 3 oil changes just in case.

I use 4 qts of Mobil 1 5w-20 and its perfect on the dipstick. This is with a filter change. 4.3 will bring it to the "full" mark on the dipstick. 4 qts puts you right between full and add.

5w-20 is easy to find. Lots of fords and hondas recomend 5-20 now as well. I wouldnt bother with the 0w-20
