I Just bought a 2018 Trax today and I'm curious if anyone here knows if it came from the factory with Full Synthetic oil or Conventional Oil? I asked the sales guy and he didn't know..

I believe the 1.4lturbo is now full synthetic. I received a memo from GM that my 2016 that was listed for Dexos 2 blend which said to switch to full synthetic if using on board oil monitor. I had already switched to full synthetic Mobil1 anyways.

Cool thanks for the reply. I did look over the owners manual and it does state to only use motor oil with the Dexos Approval label in 5W30, but it didn't mention whether it came from factory with Full Synthetic, Synthetic Blend or Conventional... I will definitely be using full synthetic.
