I'm considering purchasing this car from a local dealer and they stated that Cadillac takes care of all the maintenance for the first 4 years and 80,000 KM.

Can we trust the dealer to put an appropriately spec'd oil in there, or should I bring my own oil and filters?

Looking for recommendations on oil for this engine. I searched and didn't find much, or it could be that I just don't know how to use the search function effectively.

Any other feedback on this engine, tranny, and car in general would be appreciated.

I would think a new car dealer could be trusted. Is this a random run of the mill used car lot, they might not
be trust worthy.

I'm sure they will use the right oil in that motor, as it was having issues with low speed preignition blowing them up, and it was related to additive pack in some oils. Now I think they have it figured out. Very nice car though!
I drool over one at work, with the 2.0 and a mtx. He plans on driving it the winter so I'm interested to see how it does.

The earlier versions of that engine did have occasional issues with breaking ring lands most likely due to LSPI. Therefore a Dexos1 Gen2 oil would be your best bet. By this time that should be what the dealers are dumping in anyway.

My recommendation would be to put higher grade gas than is recommended. I believe the minimum is 87. I would run premium any chance you get, it will run better and get better mileage as well.

Otherwise the drivetrain is solid.

You can actually run 87 octane in that engine?

A turbo DI small displacement, high output engine with 87 octane can't be a good idea.

Is this car you're looking at considered "new" or "used"/CPO? I'm asking because the 2018's are probably out now.

New purchase. It's one of the handful of remaining 2017's in the city. Great discounts and incentives.

Thank you for clearing that up thumbsup

I thought it would've been considered used already since the 2018's are already out. Sorry for the confusion smile

Honda claims their new 2.0T Accord engine is designed for 87 octane...idk but I'm sure they did their testing.

I would prefer the V6. Take your own oil to the dealer
