I've been following the thread regarding changing oil and one of the posts referred to synthetic oil. What type of oil does the 2012 SRXs come with from the factory, Dino or Synthetic? I don't remember reading it in the manual. I hope it's synthetic as I think it adds more protection to the engine. Our C5 Corvette came from the factory with Mobile One and thats all we've ever used and have never had the first minutes problem from it.
Thank you for the quick response. I read the manual and the reference to dexos1, however I was unaware it was synthetic. I would prefer a straight synthetic like Mobile One instead of a blend. However I guess since the oil changes are included I'll learn to like dexos1!
In 2010 the motor required Mobil 1, cause we paid for oil changes.
In 2011 the same motor requires a synthetic "blend" cause GM is paying for oil changes.
I've never tried a synthetic blend because there isn't that much difference in the cost. Not being familiar with dexos1 I'll have to do a little research. Does anyone have any comments pro or con on dexos1.
