Just changed the oil and filter. Specs show 6 qts needed however the level was at the full mark on the dipstick at 5 3/4 qts. Probably overfilling 1/4 qt. wouldn't hurt anything but for now I'm leaving as is and will monitor. Anyone notice this when changing oil?

Did you put a Genuine GM filter or some other kind?
The GM filter has a larger body than the "popular" filters from the neighborhood parts store.
From my "eyeball" assessment the GM could easily hold a 1/4 qt or more than the "popular" filters.
