Checked with the dealer and came to know that they use Mopar conventional 5W20.

Sad news for me, really itching to use synthetic
Advice?

Any oil with MS 6395 listed in 5w-20 will do, it is in your owners manual

Re: How many have switched to a full synthetic oil?

My manual says 5w20, and 5w30 when the first isn't available.
thinking of sticking to 5w30 since its too hot where I live. 110-125F UAE, Dubai
more thicker much better I assume, for off-roading and too many highway drives to work.etc

also switching to synthetic since its written that no issues to do so., but yeah 5W30 will be my first oil change when its due.

Edit:
I have MDS too
