I am the owner of a small auto repair shop. In my opinion, GM´s process with Dexos oil is very helpful. The advertising and documentation practices of oil companies regarding compliance with auto manufacturers standards is often misleading at best. Dexos is a step in the right direction to help ensure that the correct products are used to service vehicles and prevent premature failure. I would be happy if others decide to follow GM´s lead.
