Any name brand synthetic is going to do you just fine. Some people get
all caught up in Group III vs. Group IV vs. Group V base oil arguments,
but in practice they all work extremely well as long as you stay within
the specified oil change interval.
Check your owner's manual for weight recommendation. On my '96 Volvo
10W-40 was not one of the recommended choices.
