Much confusion at my local Dealers regarding (WHAT IS INCLUDED) in the FREE- (1st Oil Change) !!



My Local Dealers (3 out of the 5) in my area say the DCT filter change (IS NOT) included in 1st oil change, and I will be charged 600.00 to perform the required DCT Filter change.



I took my C8 to a dealer today (May 2021) to one of the dealers that agreed that the DCT filter (IS) included in the FREE- 1st Oil Change, and they will have my business from now on.

Today I had this dealer perform a preventive 1500 mile (oil change only) which I paid for Out Of Pocket and I will use this Dealer in the future to perform the required (7500 mile/1 Year), FREE- (1st Oil Change & DCT Filter Change).



I had this dealer printout for me the GM Service Bulletin regarding what GM will fully cover

on the 1st Oil Change which (can and must) be performed anytime within the (FIRST 12 Months).



Please see attached memo that every dealer should have access to, regarding DCT Filter.



DON’T LET THE DEALER CHARGE YOU FOR THE DCT FILTER CHANGE!!!

Thanks for posting that info.

Why did you have the oil (presume filter also) changed @ 1500 miles, and not wait to have that and the DCT filter changed at the same time?
