Question Warranty vs Castrol Oil 1 oil annual change

Wonder what Hyundai and all the other auto makers stance will be on Castrol Oil once a year claim will be ? Bet that will void their warranties. What's your take ?

If it works, they'll all switch to it and require it in their vehicles.

No they won't, that will produce less financial profit to dealerships doing oil changes, and less opportunity to sell other services.

Pennzoil and Mobil 1 already have 10-15,000 mile oil, probably others too, so Castrol is only playing catch up if this is something new.

But yes, technically they will probably deny any warranty claims if it's oil related.. or even if they can remotely pin it on oil changes. Your warranty would end up in the hands of Castrol/Pennzoil/Mobile 1 to try and make a claim against.

Really, they won't? Dealerships aren't manufacturers to start with. And if their interests are aligned, I wonder why BMW did effect such a change then. You'd think a marquee brand like that would really stick it to their more-money-than-sense customer base by laying on the various "wallet flushes." Yet, instead they went with free maintenance for the factory warranty period (4yr, 50k miles) and kept their expenses down with special oil that allowed extended oil change intervals.

Been doing it like clockwork for the last four years. When's the last time you darkened the doors of a BMW dealership?

If you follow the annual changes and put on more than the recommended miles in the manual the warranty will be denied IMO, What the oil companies state is meaningless when it comes to manufacturer warranties. Further, any warranty from the oil company is basically useless as 99.9% of engine failures are not due to the oil but the failure to change it when suggested or have an empty crankcase or occur over miles/time. All oil company warranties state (Amsoil, Mobil 1, QS etc) to follow the recommended OCI in the manual regardless of the claims of the oil and Amsoil says the engine must be in good operating condition etc. Extended OCIs are fine (and I have done my share of them) but don't expect any one to anti up should you encounter an engine failure.

99.9 % owing to oil - that doesn't leave much room for things like overheating or things like cylinder failure owing to pre-detonation and of course with Theta II engines crankshaft seizures is probably moving up in the standings.

If you have a newer non-Turbo, it shouldn't have any effect on your warranty. Just make sure you change it EXACTLY at the one-year mark and don't drive over 7500 miles during the year ...

$79.95 is the starting cost at Nalley BMW of Decatur ($89.95 but you can get a $10 coupon online lol). And that's if they don't find the usually "needed" services. So if you are getting them for $30, you found a gem in the German services. Can't say I've seen anyplace giving a synthetic for $30.
