Should I go Synthetic??

Hi...I am getting an oil change tommorrow at the dealer. Its a 2011 V6, Manny Trans with 15k miles on it now. Car has been running like a top since new. Been using regular oil so far, should I now go to synthetic? Should I stick with regular oil?
Never uses a drop between changes and oil stays pretty clean,

I think you answered you question. If it aint broke, dont fix it.
If its running great....keep it that way and use the regular dino oil.

Synthetic isn't for fixing problems..it's for preventing problems down the road.

Mobil 1 synthetic and a good filter all day long

The main reason I prefer it over Amsoil is personal experience and ease of access.
