Nice car, and 30K is just broken in. 5W-30 for Mexico because of the temperature. You're in Texas which gets real hot too. If it was mine I'd run 5W-30 year round for a bit more HTHS viscosity protection.
No, it isn't. It's far more likely that fully synthetic oils like 0W-20 a quite a bit more expensive there. The 5W-30 recommendation is for a conventional or blend at best as that is what is generally available. Even finding synthetic oils at places like Walmart in Mexico is not always easy...
In any case I'd use a syn 0/5W-30 in summer and a 0W-20 the rest of the year, but I have a fair amount of 5W-30 in my stash...
