Oil vicosity

I searched the archives, but didn't get a clear picture. Here is the question and parameters. Since my 2001 E-320 4-Matic 58K miles with documented correct maintenance is always keep in the garage that is heated to 58-62 degrees during the winter, should I continue to run 5w-40 Mobil Syn. It is used every morning. Do I have a valid concern? It's under the StarMark warranty and as long as that remains in effect I will have my indy or the dealer do the change. What do you guys think? Thanks, Dennis

D, I'll play devil's advocate since the car is still covered by warranty. They may attempt to deny a warranty claim since the oil you mention does NOT meet the mfr's spec for lube oil.

What kind of warranty do you have on a 6 year old car?

Mercedes StarMark, two year/24K from the MB dealer. The '01 was the last to qualify back in Oct. 06, now the '02 is the least qualified, then the '03 and so on. Dennis
