Default Oil Viscosity Question

Hello,

My son has a 2005 Honda Accord, 6 Cyl.

The Manual says to use 5W-20 Oil.

He's having a rough time finding it around where he lives.

Would 5W-30 be O.K. and safe ?

Any ramifications if used, caveats, etc. ?
He lives in New England; cold winters.

Thanks,
Bob

It's available in every store I go in (CT, MA). Amazon also carries
most all brands of it.

5W-30 will do just fine. No need to worry about damage of any kind.

the 20-weight part is only intended to help conform to certain government
regulations that automakers were required to meet when the car was
certified for sale in the US.
