There are no absolutes.
What are you looking at? A 1998 with 200k miles is much closer to the end of its service life than a 2009 with 25k.
What is your budget?

Basics: Quaker State conventional 5W30, Motorcraft oil filter, Fram air filter, Valvoline Maxlife Dex/Merc ATF, Mobil 1 75W90, Michelin Primacy MXV4.
