Toyota Corolla Natural Or Synthetic Oil?

Q. 2003 Toyota Corolla LE with 7,615 miles. I did an oil change to my car today, and after putting in the new oil I noticed that the oil was synthetic; Mobil 1 5W-30 and it is recommended that I use SAE 5W-30 oil in the manual. Will this have any kind of negative affect, and for the next oil change will I be able to go back to SAE 5W-30? I hope that you can help me in this matter.

Thank you,

Toyota Corolla Natural Or Synthetic Oil?

A. No problem. Next oil change you can go back to the natural 5W-30 or stay with the synthetic 5W-30 oil.
