Appears the V6 will still be using 0-20 in their motors. I noticed the big sticker under the hood of TriStar's new Camry and confirmed in owners manual.

I wonder how many mistakes will be made at dealership servicing:)

Mistakes? Not to worry - these motors can take 5W-30 and 10W-30 oils and even thicker without consequences (except a loss of 0.5 to 1.0 miles per gallon) as confirmed by Russian and Australian owners manuals. Ultra thin oils are used as the factory fill in USA Toyotas solely because their EPA fuel economy certification numbers were attained using those oils and the EPA requires Toyota to use them as the factory fill and to recommend owners use them.

I was more concerned with using 0-16 in the V6, then again it "shouldn't" hurt it for one OCI?
