It's not problems with owning the Cruze diesel. It's problems getting it serviced at dealerships. I had to remind them to use dexos 2 oil when I got my first oil change. The dealer only had 24 quarts of it and had to wait an hour to get the oil filter from another dealer.Seriously veg with all of the unbearable troubles you've expressed with your Cruze diesel ownership experience I'm astounded that you simply haven't dumped it for something, anything, better.
Now, your service manager is right that you could void your warranty using oil that's not dexos 2 approved, no matter the specs (although if the specs are better then if it went to court I'd have to think you might win). The manual specifically states to use only dexos 2 approved.
I don't trust getting service done at dealerships, so I always remind them to use the correct product or bring my own
