My nissan dealership says to use only nissan oil filters for long life protection. Why would a nissan filter be better than a PureOne or Wix filter on my 2005 Titan or my 2009 Altima?

It's not better ... probably worse IMO.

I've used Motorcraft (same as Purolator) and NAPA Gold (same as WIX) on my 04 Altima 3.5L V6 and they work great. No cold startup noises. Plan on using a Purolator PureONE next oil change. I wouldn't use a Nissan OEM after seeing the inside construction. They may flow well, but who knows how they filter or if they might fail from crummy construction ... and they are pretty expensive for what they are IMO.

Not sure who makes the Nissan OEM oil filters, but their construction is similar to a FRAM (cardboard type material for end caps). Not sure what the filtering efficiency is or the type of media is used on them.

The Nissan filters probably work fine if used as intended (regular OCIs) ... but IMO there are better filters for less money out there.

The Nissan filters for my car are light years better then any aftermarket I`ve ever seen and they`re only $6. Mine are the "made in Japan" ones. They`re huge,heavy,and built like a tank!

I just looked at the MyG37 link. Those white Nissan filters are completely different then the blue Nissan filters I buy.

The only oil filters I can from the local Nissan dealer for my Altiam V6 are the crummy "Made in China" models. I refuse to use them and would rather buy a $5 PureONE or $7 NAPA Gold instead.

Why do you think the dealership wants you to buy a Nissan filter? Who sells Nissan filters?


If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

I'm running an Advance Auto Total Grip right now my 03 Altima 2.5L. Basically a Prem Plus with slightly less media and nice red texture for easy installation. Price was very right and it will be fine for 5k/6m OCI.

I wouldn't go out of my way for Nissan OEM with the likes of the value laden and quality Pure One out there. Even the MC Busa ran is a good choice.

If the price is right, Wix would work too.

Don't know about Nissan, but when I could find an AC for my truck, it had at least half again more filter area than anything else. The current l10193 has much less media in it than they used to, barely more than a Fram. Both have a dome end bypass.

I would cut a few filters open and make up my mind.

Some of the Japanese filters made by Denso are of good quality. I do not know who makes the Nissan filter.

But I changed my mother inlaws oil this weekend and she had an OEM Honda filter. Why the outside looked impressive the inside was Fram - cardboard and all.

In this case OEM would be a worse filter and for more $$.

The last Nissan filter I got was from China and inside was kind of like the orange can....

The Japan made ones from a year ago were very well make.

Were can you find Japan made ones for a 03 Pathfinder?

I just noticed that the latest OEM Nissan filter for my wife's G35 says "made in China" while the one I took off was "Made in Japan"

I have serious concerns about the filter quality, but no evidence. I'll have to look through my stash... hopefully I don't have too many more.

Maybe I should go to Mobil 1? I already did that on my Q45 after Nissan downgraded the 60U00 filter to the 55Y00 after years of stating that the 60U00 was a necessary upgrade on their higher performance engines.
