AMSOIL Signature Series Fuel-Efficient Automatic Transmission Fluid is a group 4/5 based true synthetic lubricant that has no equal in the industry. Service interval guarantees are backed by a transmission repair/replacement warranty by AMSOIL should the lubricant fall out of OEM specifications within those intervals. Owners save money with AMSOIL through doubled severe service intervals. Extended drain intervals reduce environmental impact. All AMSOIL products are made and packaged in the USA.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Isn't it cheaper to get GM fluid changed?
A: 90% of drivers drive "severe service" conditions, and GM's initial fill requires replacement by 25k miles. With AMSOIL's 2x severe service interval guarantee, you only pay for one fluid service that will be food for 90,000 miles as opposed to paying for two OE fluid services that will only be good for 45,000 miles each.
Q: Will this void my warranty?
A: Regardless of what your dealer tells you, the Magnuson-Moss act protects you from having your warranty voided by using a product other than what the dealer recommends. If there is a failure, GM has to prove that the fluid caused the failure. Since AMSOIL recommends this fluid specifically for the Cruze in their product guide, it has been tested to be within the specification of the OE fluid and AMSOIL can prove that it is within spec. It will be GM's burden to prove that it is not within spec, which they will not be able to do. Furthermore, GM's liability ends at 5 years/100k miles, while AMSOIL's guarantee extends to the recommended drain interval of the fluid. The answer is NO, your warranty will not be voided. If your dealer refuses to change this fluid in for you or asks you to sign a waiver, take your car to an independent transmission shop.
Q: Will this affect my fuel economy?
A: Excellent cold-flow fluidity will allow the fluid to exceed the fuel economy of the factory fluid during short trips, warm-up periods, and cold weather.
Q: Will this fix my erratic shifting?
A: Cruze owners who have changed to AMSOIL ATF have noted that the fluid significantly smoothed out the shifting issues they were having on as little as 26k miles on OE fluid. Since shifting issues can result from many problems, your results may vary.
