Just curious, of the 2011 V6 Equinox owners, how many read the owners manual to discover that the V6 engine requires " dexos " motor oil? What is dexos motor oil? Did you go to a lube/oil change business and just request your usual brand of oil? wwwdotgmdexosdotcom Gm certified technician does state that Mobil 1 does exceed gm dexos specifications. According to the owners manual, "use of non dexos oil" may void warranty.

I do know what dexos oil is. I did read wwwdotgmdexosdotcom. I did read the articles. I am proposing that most 2011 V6 owners do not even know the requirement for dexos oil as listed in the owners manual.

The oil wars have been going on for years...this oil is better then that oil, etc. etc. etc.....bull$__.
Don't worry about what oil you use. Any brand name syn oil will be fine.
