Which oil for V6?

The oil for the V6 has to be 5W-30 and meet the Chrysler specification MS-6395.
I bought some Castrol EDGE and I looked the specs on line thinking that all these oils meet manufacturers specs. It seems I was wrong, I need to search for a different oil.
What do you use?

Mobile 1 5w-30 is Chrysler MS-6395 approved.

So is Mobile 1 Extended Performance 5W-30

I doubt the Castrol Edge will be a problem as the GM and Ford specs it meets are every bit as rigorous as the Chrysler spec. You my want to call Castrol and ask why the didn't choose to certify it for Chrysler. In addition to the Mobil 1, Quaker State and Pennsoil (Shell) meet the specs.

False alarm, my apologies.
The Castrol web site shows some manufacturers' specifications but not the Chrysler. I was at Wally World today and checked the 5Qt bottles and they show MS-6395Q.
They need to correct their web site. So, I picked two of those and I'm getting ready for the first oil change.

Oh well, should I ever do the oil change on my own then (I have a couple of Mopar filter carts coming in the mail) then I'll just pick up a jug of Mobil 1 5w-30 from Walmart instead of a jug of Rotella T6...no sweat.
