2022 Kia Seltos SXTurbo 1.6 T-GDi

I've ALWAYS used Mobil-1 Full Synthetic Extended Performance oils and products in my past cars with the Mobil 1 Extended Performance oil filters. Called Mobil NO JOY!!!!! :mad: They don't have filters for this car I called Kia they said the Kia filter they use on oil changes the 2.0 engine and the 1.6 T-GDi are the same filter. Anyone know what would be top of the line extended filters since Mobil-1 does not list one per the rep I spoke to on the phone. I want to keep with an extended filter to go along with my oil, even with the extended oil i use I change every 5000-7.500k regardless...

I work for a Toyota dealer, but purchased a ‘22 Seltos SX. The Kia dealer is right next door, so I had a discussion with a Service Writer after my first oil change at the dealer. Decided to have the first one done by them just in case they found a defect with the vehicle. Anyway, I digress. I used Amsoil Signature Series in my previous vehicle (also a turbo motor), so I asked the SW if that was approved for use in my Seltos. He said “absolutely because it’s an upgrade from the semi-synthetic used by Kia”, but then added “Kia is pretty picky about people using genuine OEM oil filters while under warranty”.

Now, I know a manufacturer can’t force us to use their filters, but I figure why take the chance of a denied claim for something as simple as an oil filter? Besides, they’re not expensive. In my Parts department I’ve even started stocking the OEM Kia filters for when we recondition a Hyundai or Kia that has powertrain warranty left. That way the customer that purchases the vehicle from us can have a little extra peace of mind about their warranty.

just use the KIA OEM filters since they have been specifically designed for these four cylinders. I think 26300-35505 applies to all four cylinder engine KIa and Hyundai made since 2010? original number was 26300-35504 until two years ago. i have only used OEM filters on all vehicles I have owned in past ten years because I trust them and the price is about the same or less than after market brand that was designed to be an universal fit. I have followed 10k interval with M1 or any full synthetic on sale without an issue.

Thanks all that have responded I picked up a FRAM Ultra Synthetic XG968 filter I might return and go with the OEM
as some have mentioned here but I will continue to use the Mobil 1 Extend Performance 5w-30 oil. Just turned 2500miles I plan to change over now and then every 5.0k or 7.5k change it because i've never gone the full time frame the oil says it's good for as I might go a little over kill but its only $$ and fresh oil is better than old oil any time been like that on my MX race bikes and even our little scooter..................

I think you stand a better chance with less hassle if you stay with OEM suggestions and parts when it comes to warrantees. Granted most aftermarket parts meet OEM standards, but it is less hassle when the problem is strictly OEM.
