The manual states: blah, blah... check with your dealer... whether the oil is approved to the dexos1 specification.

So.. I was at the local Wally Mart in the oil section and I could not find anything with the dexos1 "certification mark" - not Pennzoil, not Quaker State, not Valvoline - not noth'in.

This is my first turbo (and the first oil change) so I want to make sure I have the correct oil (5w-30, semi sythetic).

Am I reading more into this than necessary?

Looking for input from fellow Cruze owners, thanks, Jim

My local Walmart has Mobil One with Dexos 1 certification. Changed my Oil on my ECO at 1500 miles. Filter bought at chevy dealer. How many miles do you have on your Cruze?

GM dexos Licensed Products

It turns out that there are a few brand on the shelf at Wal-Mart that meet dexos1. Quaker State Ultimate Durability is a good oil at a good price. Make sure it's API SN, and you're good. Basically, API SN 5w-30 full synthetics will meet dexos1.

A lot of oils ARE certified, but the new labels aren't out yet since the certified/unlabeled product is still in the distribution network.

I already purchased a five quart bottle of Mobil One with the Dexos certification label on it, plus a half a dozen Delco filters from rockauto.com. It's nice the 1.4 L uses only 4 1/2 quarts, get robbed buying an extra single quart for a 5 1/2 quart oil change. Plus I want to know what's in there. And yes, did have problems with my Cavalier not changing the oil filter.

And where did they come up with paper only filter being cheap, from local pricing, cost three times as much as those screw in can types.

But changing oil at 1,500 miles? Leave it in there, is a break in oil to be sure your rings are properly seated.

Walmart Mobil 1 @$ 25 Quaker State Ultimate Durability @ $20 Fram(lots of guys don't care for Fram but it is available) ch10246 @ $6 Rock Auto and Napa also have the filter depends on how fast you need it. Autozone and Advance have not gotten with the Cruze program yet.

Get the Delco filter at the dealer. It's $6-7 including tax, and is so much better than the Fram at Wal-Mart. For the oil filter, the dealer wins this round.

dexos 1™ is just a technical "specification" -- something the oil is tested to -- it is NOT a physical item or component. There is NO such thing as an dexos 1™ oil, only an oil that has been:

(a) tested to and certified against the dexos 1™ "specification" requirements and...

(b) has paid GM a "licensing fee" to BUY the permission to use the green dexos 1™ trademark ( ™ ) on their 'complying' oil labels.

...it's another, legally-based "technical scam" perpetrated by GM, just like Dexcool™ coolant.

I work in auto parts sales, so I called the Royal Purple tech line...Royal Purple in the NEW bottle IS Dexos compatible...I just don't have any new bottles on the shelf yet. The tech guy said the label will also say Dexos compatible. Mobil 1 is compatible if it has Dexos on the label.

On another note, if you take your car to the dealer, be sure they are using Dexos and not their bulk oil...my first oil change the dealer put bulk oil in it. I didn't notice until I got home and read the work order. I did take it back and make them use Dexos because of possible warranty issues down the road.

Hengst. It's then re-boxed and sold under the Delco label at dealers.

IMO, the Hengst/Delco PF2257G filter is the best one available for these cars out of the ones I've seen. It's built like a tank and available for $6-7 at the dealer.

From what I've read Dexos oils have more additives to last the length of extended oil change intervals which could be over 10,000 miles. If you change the oil every 3000 miles, any name brand oil would be fine unless there was a warranty issue.

Did the guy say that the Dexos label will be on the bottles? It sounds like he said "meets or exceeds the specification" without having the label. In other words, marketing speak.

The RP website only says meets or exceeds nothing about "certified" which means GM dosent recommend it.
