According to Selenia, 10W40 Semi in the 3.0V6.

Doesn't have to be Selenia though.

The manual states10W40 for normal use, 10W60 for "sporty" use. I love my GTV and drive it well so I use Castrol Edge 10W60 Racing Synthetic.

I would use a 5w-40 or 10w-40 for normal use or a 10w-50 Ester synthetic like Pro S for hard use.
