How good is Fram 5w20 full synthetic motor oil? I had an oil change done on my Santa Fe, 2.4 and the shop I use switch from Castrol, which I know and trust to Fram. 5w20 Full synthetic. 2019 Hyundia Santa Fe, 2.4 liter. I know Fram oil filters do not have the best rating.

Worked fleet over 40 years many different companies, all used Fram. Never had a single problem. I regularly sent out oil and filters to an
outside company for testing, biggest concern is time and mileage not just mileage or pushing mileage to ridiculous amounts they all tout.
Just my opinion as a long time Fram customer even on my personal vehicles.

Well Dave, I figured you were joshing us there with a photo-shopped picture. But no, I find that is a real product!

Regardless, I think a vehicle is much more likely become BER (beyond economical repair) from a road incident or trans failure than from performance issues with any "name brand" engine oil that is kept reasonably full, clean, and fresh.
