I went in for an oil change last week. The dealer put in 5w-20 despite the fact that the manual calls for 5w-30. When I called the dealer and brought this to the service rep's attention she said they are supposed to use 5w-20 instead of 5w-30 in our climate (COnnecticut). I don't see anything in the manual about that.

Should I be concerned about this? Have any of you been told this?

if u look at the quick reference guide on the back - it mentions 5w-20. 5w-20 should be fine for the winter. In the summer you should probably run the 5w-30.
