If 5w30 is recommended, depending on the climate and temp where you live 10w30 will be fine.keep in mind that 10w30 is a little thicker so in cold climates it takes a little longer to get moving

SOURCE: Can putting 10w30 synthetic oil instead of 5w30

5w 30 is much thinner than 10w 30. Most newer vehicles require 5w30

I personally like synthetic oils because the viscocity adjusts with the temperature in all climates and weather. No need to change every season

SOURCE: can i use 5w30 instead of 5w20 oil on a 2006

you can but not recommended. the reason for the thinner oil is the tolerances in the bearing races on these engines are very tight, requiring thinner oil. 5w30 is ok for sure if you are going synthetic.

I have a mazda 626 , went to get my oil changed and noticed my synthetic 10w30 had been changed to synthetic 5w30 oil. I've never had to specify wich only that I wanted synthetic. My owners manual only...

Nope, it's not a problem. The numbers relate to the viscosity or slippery'ness (if thats a word) of the oil. The first number (5 or 10) is the viscosity of the oil when you first start the car. 5 is more slippery than 10. The second number (30) is the operating viscosity of the oil after your car has warmed up.
Simply put, in the winter your oil thickens when it cools down so you need smoother oil (5w30) when you start the car.
Winter = 5w30
Summer = 10w30
Hope this helps.
