Hello This really depends on the age of your car and the climate of where you live. Toyota originally recommended 10w30 for these cars, but you may want to use a thicker or thinner oil based on mileage and weather. I normally would not put 5 in a car unless in a cold climate. Of course, now is the perfect time of year to winterize your car, so this could be a good move. So, yes, you can use this oil, but I would only do so if you are living somewhere cold. If so, keep warm =) CarGrrl
