That’s only the cvt fluid. Tech says it was still ok. I

There is someone that has 130k. Same year.
No cross-country. Just NorCal and SoCal.

How many of you change oil at the dealership?

I changed only once because it was free and still had 4 more but I didnít bother. They didnít replaced filter at first oil change. I have marked the original filter when I bought the car. . And checked it after oil change.. same filter. I didnít complain or anything I just went out bought mobil1 and order Nissan filter online and did it myself

phew, that's what I thought but wasn't sure. My Hyundai auto trans died at 130k so it certainly seemed possible.
I thought the trans fluid should be every 60, or even 30. Is there any harm in doing it more often? I think I'd like to shoot for the low end of what's required and try to avert any problems down the road.

I've owned two Gen 8 Maxima's since they came out - a 2016 Platinum and a 2017.5 Platinum. The 2016 had an issue with the tranny (dirt in the fluid causing hesitation at acceleration - Dealer changed the valve body plate and replaced fluid - Problem Cleared, covered by Warranty), and an occasional forgetfulness of the Seat Memory. I put 45K on her in two years with no additional issues. I traded her in for the 2017.5 and have 30K on her already with zero issues.

It seems those moldings had a bad design, just checked mine and they are loose. Will take it to the dealer on the next oil change. Hope they don't give me a hard time to change it under warranty.

shouldnt be a problem. I noticed mine was loose, hadn't even fallen off yet. Told the dealer about it and they gave me a brand new one.
