2012 Nissan Quest: Oil And Filter Change Warning

October 22, 2012


As I started our 2012 Nissan Quest in the parking garage I was greeted with this prominent oil change reminder on the navigation screen. I had to click the "OK" button before it would go away. Incidentally, the "change this setting" part refers to a user defineable oil change interval. 

But that wasn't the only reminder that the Quest served up.


Turns out the oil filter needed changing, too.

Really? Glad you told me that, Mr. Quest, otherwise I would have totally blown it.

Seriously, do you know anyone that crawls under their car to drian the oil but leaves the filter in place for a second round? Someone that tells the dealer or mechanic "Oil only today -- the filter was just changed last time."

I certainly don't and won't. Methinks just one unified "Oil & Filter" reminder would do the job.
