There are small changes like lights for rear seats are now controllable separately, etc. There was a change list posted somewhere, I will look for it and link it here.

Thanks. I look forward to seeing it as if I can track down a better priced 2010 I will go for it. not much incentive to buy new in Ontario right now.

Found it, got it from link below. I don't think anything warrants an extra charge for the 2011 if you have decided to buy used. One more thing not listed below is the Onstar app - the 2010 model does not work with it - you can lock/unlock doors or start engine if you get one with remote starter included from iphone or android phone.
Also just like the list doesn't mention the small rear seat light switches I mentioned it might not be complete.

If there were no major changes, especially in the engine, then why is GM pushing the Dexos oil in the 2011 models? I asked the service manager at my dealership if it was a con job by GM and he said he thought so, because anyone using the name has to pay GM royalties. The oil the dealership is using is a blend, which he said he thought was at the maximum 50/50 mix. I've heard from another dealer it was a mix of 1 quart synthetic to 2 quarts regular oil.

I'm not arguing that the synthetic isn't a better oil, just why all of a sudden the big push?

I think the consensus is that there is no difference and that most of the name brand oils are Dexos certified but may not have the logo on the package. Here is a link to see that most oils are Dexos.

barhoc is right. Many brands do not have the symbol but are completely compatable. Amsoil is one that I know of.
