New-To-Me 2008 Fusion Zetec

First post, got some general questions :) After my father-in-law passed away last month, I've inherited his car as a second runabout.

It needs a little bit of TLC, got it booked in for an oil and brake fluid change this week, and it looks like the discs are lipped so new pads and discs in the near future.

Giving it the once over, I noticed that the passenger side front tyre is pretty worn on the outside edge, the drivers side is fine as is the inner edge of the tyre.

Could this be a tracking issue (seems unlikely if the drivers side is fine)?

Any particular things I should look out for? The cars only done 13500 miles, it's an auto box with the 1.6 petrol engine.

I intend to use it mostly for bipping about locally as my Audi doesn't like short runs, this seems ideal for that kind of thing.

One final question, when I booked it in for the oil, they thought it might need 5w20 oil, although the manual states 5w30, which is what I've told them to do, any opinions on that before I go ahead?

Thanks for any replies :)

JUst spotted something else, the plastic trim that sits underneath the wipers has a fair bit of play in it. It looks like the windscreen is supposed to sit in the groove at the top of the plastic, but this is actually detached from the screen.

My main worry is water ingress... is there any way to seal it? It's almost like it has warped, the two fixings are on place at each side, as far as I can see there is no centre fixing, which is a shame as it woudl help hold it in position!

I've added a photo on caise my description above doesn't make sense :)
