Default oil change

My wife took her 2018 Maxima to a local shop to have the oil changed and I saw on the ticket that they used 5w30 synthetic instead of 0w20. Will this pose any problems other than reduced mpg? her car has 10k miles.

No...and it's not going to cause reduced mileage, either. However, the next time you take your car to have the oil changed, you may want to tell them you want 0W20.

Thanks, we just got back from vacation [about 900 miles] I never intended to have 5w30 used but I guess the shop didn't know better. I was too busy to take care of it myself so my wife took it in.
