What Type of Oil Does a FIAT 500 Take?

If you commute to Seattle in a FIAT 500 every day, you already know it provides a speedy, efficient ride. To keep your 500 running smoothly, regular oil changes – with the correct type of oil – are essential. Whether you’re performing a FIAT 500 oil change at home or leaving it to a local service center, you should only use 5W-30 oil in your FIAT engine. Learn more about this type of oil and how often you should get a FIAT 500 oil change, below.

What Is 5W-30 Oil?

5W-30 oil is a multigrade oil that is used widely across many makes and models. This is a thinner type of oil that performs well at almost all temperatures (with the exception of extreme heat and extreme cold), making it ideal for those of us who live in Olympia or Lakewood. You’ll find many brands on the market that sell this type of oil. So long as it says “5W-30” on the package, it’s safe to put in your FIAT 500 engine.

FIAT 500 Recommended Oil Change Schedule

In the past, most experts recommended a 3,000 to 5,000-mile interval for oil changes. These days, that interval has increased to every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. For the FIAT 500, the recommended interval is 8,000 miles. However, many drivers still like to stick to the 7,500-mile limit, just to be safe.

How Much Does a FIAT 500 Oil Change Cost?

When you go to a University Place area service center, you can expect your FIAT 500 oil change to cost anywhere from $90 to $120. This accounts for the cost of labor and the cost of parts, but the price may vary depending on where you live.
