It looks like I will be changing the oil much more often
I currently own a car with my first turbocharged engine (2013 Cruze 1.4 Liter). I went a little over 200 miles and I'm down to 97% already on the oil life monitor. With my 2010 Malibu, I could go 10 months between oil changes. It looks like I will be changing the oil in half that time now. Does that have to do with the Turbo engine? I know a Turbo runs much hotter than a standard engine. I've been babying the car, so that should have a positive effect on the oil index.
I wasn't thrilled that I was getting a Turbo Charged Engine, but there's really no choice with the Cruze. Only the base model comes with a standard aspiration engine. All other models come with the Turbo. I will say that it seems like a very good Turbo. Very smooth and no Turbo Lag. But I would have preferred a standard aspiration engine.
It seems like GM has gone Turbo with a lot of their cars. The Cruze, Malibu, Regal. I would have preferred the same sized engine with direct injection.
