I now have over 100K on my Camry SC and I was using 10W40 and recently 20W50 Castrol GTX (I live in So Cal). I'm now switching over to this...Valvoline Max Life 100% Synthetic (not the *Blend*). Did a lot of DD and the specs on this oil are outstanding. It has Zinc..Phos..Sodium..Calcium and Moly added. I'm using the 10W30 here.

That's what I've been using in my solara since I bought it over 4 years ago. I highly recommend.

Unless you live in a warmer climate, stick with 5W30.
