Of the 2 oil grades recommended, which one is best for hot countries 0W-20 or 5W-20?

Asked by Nov 08, 2013 at 01:58 PM about the 2013 Toyota Highlander SE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Toyota Highlander 2013 6V SE and live in Belize. The manual calls for using engine grade oil 0W-20 preferable or 5W-20.  However, I cannot find oil grade 0W-20 here, maybe its not even imported.  The weather in Belize is very hot and it averages 30 degrees C.  The manual refers to 0W-20 for cold countries such as Canada.  Will there be any damage to the vehicle if I use the 5W-20?
