2013 Chevy Cruze 1.4L turbo? Had the oil for probably over 5 years which is before the Dexos thing came out. Any issue in using it here? No warranty concerns.

No issue. Mobil 1 5W30 has been low Calcium for a very long time, along with just being a top quality product regardless of dexos cert.

I would use it and not think twice. I don't think there's really any difference from pre-Dexos M1 to Dexos approved M1 other than the fees paid to GM to allow the logo on the bottle.

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't believe that engine is direct injection so LSPI should not be a concern.
I would guess that oil is from 2011 or earlier if it is not marked dexos1, but would also think it should be fine if it wasn't exposed to really high and/or low temps for long periods.
