It's a cheap car that you're planning to sell. Don't waste any time/effort/money trying to make it something that it's not-you'll never recoup your investment.

If it's Pennzoil Platinum Pure Plus you have, the 5W-20 is slightly thinner than the 0W-20 according to the datasheet. You or anybody else won't notice the difference.

It's a 20-grade, just use it. Nobody or nothing will know the difference. 5W is perfectly fine for your climate this time of year.

Although I believe it is very safe, I also believe that you should stay with the recommended oil for warranty purposes. Maybe use the 5w20 in the warmer months only and stay with the 0w20 for the colder months.
