I am at 32,000 miles and I got my automatic transmission fluid changed and switched over to Amsoil ATF.

I have to say what diference. Drives like a different car. Very smooth shifts and when I start in manual mode there is no hesitation and it feels like it has more power. Sometimes starting out in third there was a little hesitation but never in second.

Also my MPG went up .1 since I have drove it today and I just got it changed this morning. Although not sure if it went up because I put in a new air filter but the shifts are much better and I would reocmmend switching over to Amsoil

My dealer is awesome I bring my fluid in and they are more than happy to use it instead of theirs. So they used a machine to get all the old fluid out and replace with the new Amsoil fluid. I had to bring in 3 gallons but it was worth it IMO since I will be holding on to the car for a long time. The only fluid to switch over to Amsoil is the anti-freeze so I will do that at the five year mark when the factory stuff needs changing. Just wish Amsoil was a little easier to get but if it makes my care last longer then I don't mind.

you can pm xtremerevolution and he can send you sum or you can go to amsoil.com to purchase some.
Yeah but then you have to pay retail pricing...

I am the resident AMSOIL dealer. Send me a PM for pricing details.

I will be switching over to Amsoil very shortly myself. For the engine oil anyways, unfortunately the tech guy from Amsoil told me they do not have a product for the manual transmission in my '14 Cruze. I can’t seem to find the premium engine oil filter either, they list a Wix filter for mine.

We all use the Synchromesh anyway. It is far better than the OE fluid or anything anyone else has tried.

They don't make a filter for this car. The Wix filter is good but you can get it cheaper on rockauto.com. I buy 10 at a time.
