Yes, they have back specced my Sienna (originally 5w30) to both 5w20 and 0w20. I can post/paste the chart that shows what year/make has what recommendation if you want.

Why would any one feel the need to back spec the oil to 0W-20?

I can't answer your question, but I can guarantee you that when I saw that Toyota had said I can run 0w20 in my van, it sure made it easier to pour in the m1HM 5w20 that I did this morning (my first fill with a 20 weight in the van).

With respect to that chart have look at what Toyota said here.

Good info!

I think engines that are in excellent condition can run a good 0W-20 with no issues.

Toyota told me to run a synthetic 5w30 (PP or VV or M1) in my engine. Next choice is the Toyota house brand.
