My first oil change

5202 12
I drive ~2400 miles a month and one month has passed since I took delivery, so I decided to do the Cruze's first oil change myself. First of all I am happy to report that it's a piece of cake. With the car on ramps, it took me all of about 15 minutes to change the oil and filter, most of that time waiting for the oil to fully drain out.

I was surprised to see that car was delivered with a PF64 oil filter, while the manual calls out for a UPF64R filter. I had done some research before ordering the oil filters and came upon this post in another forum - seems like GM is not following their own advise.

I'm going to have to make sure that the dealer used the appropriate filter when I bring it to them for oil changes!

There are three versions (three GM part numbers) of the UPF64R and the one that I bought (Rock Auto has the best price, BTW) was blue, so if the label is facing the pan, it's almost impossible to tell the difference between the PF64 and the UPF64R.
