It's 6.5 qts but I use a flat 7 qts...as do the dealers. The manual shows the EXACT amount suggested.

use 7 with a filter change. It may show as not FULL on the dip stick but it is OK

I use 7 also. It takes an amazing amount of oil to prime that little filter.

The manual says to fill until half way between the high and low mark on the dipstick. which equals 6.5 quarts.

My 2004 Service Manual says fill to the H, which equals 7 quarts (contrary to the 6.5 quart capacity stated in the manual).
