Mrcjolsen wrote Ive put just over 5k on my certified used 2011 Rogue S. Looking at the published nissan schedule they dont break it down in intervals - like oil change every 5000 miles But rather what to do at 30000 miles 35000 miles etc. They definitely want people to just drive their car to the dealership at certain odometer points and bring their credit cards. I just need to know how long between
Good points and good idea keeping on topic. There is an existing thread on this that covers a lot of the debate and we could add to it has-anyone-changed-to-synthetic-oil-yet-t304676.html ...and that is disappointing that nissan is using the cheap filters with cardboard ends I wont be pushing it much past 3500 miles6 months.

Here is the link to the owners manuals and service manuals from Courtesy nissan nissan owners manual download Service manuals are at the bottom. Per that for 2008 here is the info Quote PREMIUM MAINTENANCE Replace engine oil and filter Lubricate all lockshinges Replace automatic transmissionCVT fluid Replace differential oil 1 Replace engine air filter Replace engine coolantflush system Replace engine
nissan may not offer a synthetic. I will check into it though because many manufacturers (Mercedes GM (Corvette) specify use of sythetics in their higher-end vehicles. Maybe nissan specs a synthetic for the 350Z. I use Amsoil and do my own maintenance on my Rogue. I do own a Honda and the local dealer is happy to do my oil changes and put in the Amsoil I give them. If you are interested in using a
own additional recommendations to jack the price up... From the 2009 Maintenance Guide Schedule 1 & 2 Maintenance Replace engine oil and filter Replace climate controlled seat filter (Maxima if so equipped) Replace engine air filter Replace engine coolant Replace HEV inverter coolant 5 Replace in-cabin microfilter 2 Replace manual transmission oil (Frontier only) Rotate tires (except 350Z)
Definitely go with the nissan schedule not the Haynes.. Right off the bat the spark plugs are platinum and even the premium maintenance schedule from nissan doesnt specify they be changed until 105000 miles. Heres the 30K premium schedule httpwww.nissanusa.compdftechpub...2006_N_SMG.pdf Replace engine oil and filter &10063 Lubricate all lockshinges &10063 Replace automatic transmissionCVT fluid &10063
there is in the first 45k miles. Of course the dealership will try to sell you a lot of unnecessary service things like fuel system cleaning battery service etc. The total for all the necessary and legitimate services isnt much more than 500 in the first 45k. Less if you do your own oil changes. I say no deal. In order to maintain the warranty you would need to bring the car every 3 months or 3500
36500 miles in my 2012 SV since I bought it new in April 2012. Absolutely no problems. Still with excellent performance. getting not less than 27 mpg at average highway speed of 75mph. No noises or creeks. Original tires still has another 3000-5000 miles on them. oil and filter changes at every 3500 miles with 10w-30 synthetic blend (semi synthetic). Use all three grades of fuel in random. CVT transmission
simply dont know enough about Infinity or the FX models. Can you guys give me any advice Thanks....... my first car was the hand me down minivan when I was 15-17 when I was 17-18 I bought a 2005 Honda accord v6 EXL at 240hp with some mods bringing it to 250ish. it was super fast and light compared to the 90hp mini van that we had prior that was rwd. the Honda is fwd. When I was 19-20 I bought a nissan

The owners manual says that its towing capacity is 5000lbs however Ive heard that later in 2003 KIA decided to reduce the towing weight to 3500lbs (apparently fearing for too many warranty claims). In UK & Australia they seem to tow 4500lbs trailers with KIA all the time without any issues but I have found solid confirmation of that only on diesel KIA Sorento. I will use good brake controller and WDH so there should not be much issues with tongue weight (I think) Anyone has real-life experience with KIA 3.5L pulling such weight Any other ideas will be appreciated too As with any vech it is all in what you wish to do and what you realize while doing it. And what you except after you do it. And except as you responceiblity for doing that. 1)Vech is able to tow 5000 like you see in UK and AUS and elsewhere outside the USA and maybe CDN. 2)Vech in USA and maybe CDN is limited to 3500 for just the reasons you state. Warrenty claims. 560-10100. But can tow 5000 just like the rest of the world. 3)Towing 3500 or under poses no real strain on the vech that will show up in higher brake pad replacement intervules. If any slightly more but nothing that most USA owners will gripe about much. Not if you do higher then required services AKA trans and eng oilfilters and plugs and air. 4)Towing over 3500 and more so really upto 5000 which it can do will create very high brakes pad turnover and in many cases warped and glazed rotors on a high frequentcy. This is documented by those outsid the USA that show and infact say they get XXXXX miles out a set where as USA owners get XXXXX. And the need to more routine services over the book requirements. 5) You play you pay. Nothing is free. Or buy a heavier duty tow vech. And spend less on brakes. And do less trans services and less oil changes and plugs and air. A 4.75.3 TAHOE or 4.85.4 EXPEDITION will tow 5000 far easier and with less fuss and maintence then a 220.127.116.11 Sorento. As will the Borrego V8. Or if you wish you can go for the either V8 version of the Toyota Sequioa 4.85.7 or nissan Armada 4.65.4.
purchased a service warranty for around 1200 that covers 3 services( oil changeoil filters and coolant0) and will cover also the transmission fluid change which i think is 500 to 600. My experience with this amazing car for the past 8 months has been great just like the sales rep said once you go MB you will be married to MB. Pleasant drive when you need speed the V6 will kick you good. I had a nissan
