2011 Chevrolet Impala

I was at a Chevrolet dealer recently and they had a sign posted that 2011 models REQUIRED synthetic blend oil. (at $42 per change!).

Can anyone shed some light on this such as is it true and if so why?

I am aware that some models need full synthetic, but requiring synthetic blend is a new one to me.


  • I would like the answer to the topic posted by 66speed, What type of synthetic oil should be used and is it required now?

    Changed the title of this discussion so that it's more likely to get attention from other 2011 owners.

  • I have dropped a ring in the vent under the driver seat of my 2011 Chevy Impala. Anyone know how to get the ring out of this vent? I can't get my fingers in there to feel it. Any ideas of how to retrieve this ring? Thanks
