    Default C5 X7 Gearbox oil.........what a surprise!

    The well recognised French technical publication RTA, recommends DEXRON III for the C5 Auto gearbox....
    W.T.F ?

    Actually, they often refer to the X7 model -post 2008- as the C5 II in France, as opposed to the C5 I phase I or 2.

    But when it comes to DEXRON III for the gearbox, I'll definitely be asking why they would make that a recommendation, which, from what I've heard, should never be added to those gearboxes

    Thanks Salman, yes I'm also convinced that is wrong. Problem is : RTA is a very common reference book for people doing their service themselves.....So I wonder how many C5's are going around with Dexron in the AM6 And I'll be posting on some of those websites, making them aware!
