might sound like a new question but since pjny already start a thread similar to my curiosity, so i'll just post it here:
i noticed many newer cars nowaday uses 0w20, such as 2013 2.5 altima for example.
my bro had 2011 lexus rx hybrid, traded in for 2013 gs f sport, both uses 0w20 (according from manual).
he recently traded in his 2010-11 nissan quest (uses 5w30) to a 2012-13 honda odyssey, and it use 0w20.
im currently using mobile1 synthetic 5w30 on 08 2.5sl, but since many japanese automakers are starting to use 0w20 (probably for the slightly increased fuel economy, but correct me if i'm wrong though), should i use 0w20 for 4th gen altima as well? anyone here had experience driving the same vehicle with different oil weight and finds difference in any way? i live in north jersey about 5-10 miles west of manhattan.
