Never said 0W-20 would cause engine problems, my issue is using an oil different from what the manufacturer specifies while the vehicle is still under warranty. If you do run into engine trouble while the vehicle is under warranty the first thing the dealer/manufacturer is going to do is review all your maintenance records to make sure you followed everything they required.

Yes, he does. So I figure by the time I have to pay for my oil changes 0W-16 oil will no longer be the rare, expensive substance it is today.
The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.
