From the owner's manual, below is the recommend engine oil:

Engine oil (drain and refill) 4.6 l (4.86 US qt.) API Service SM, ILSAC GF-4 or above.

It is highly unlikely that 5W40 meets ILSAC GF-4.
I suggest using a 10W30 oil.

OMG... that jus scary.
Lies, by the way.. Shell makes everything you need.

by the way, 20W50 definitely does not meet ILSAC GF-4
