Engine Oil for RAV4

Car Information:
Toyota RaAV4
Year: 2006
Engine Size: 6 cylinder
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
I got this vehicle in 2006 and drive it about 6 miles a day to and from work. I’ve asked before about the engine oil (Amsoil) and Larry said put zero-something in. It’s only got a little over 12,000 miles on it now. My mechanic thinks 10W30 is good. He says the zero-whatever is too thin for Florida. Tell me again (I gave the mechanic the email and don’t have it anymore) what weight Amsoil should go into my engine.

Answer:
Your mechanic scares me! I recommend the 0-W-30 Amsoil and change it once a year or every 10,000 mile.
