More importantly, will this cause long term issues with the engines. I guess they are not concerned about any engine damage even with 2 liter overfill.
that concerns me too. if they go from saying overfill can cause engine damage to a corporate change to preserve image allowing 2 liters over not to be an issue. its like the forever diff, coolant and tranny fluid. just a marketing position for increased customer satisfaction regarless of if its good for the car. i call bullshit.
