Just took delivery. Owners manual calls for “ester SN oil.” Not sure there are many of those around. Am I a hostage to the dealer for his Nissan SN ester oil?

Thoughts? Thanks

No. I just glanced at the manual, and the wording is much the same as the manual for mine, and various other Nissans and Infinitis of recent years. Any SN 5w-30 will do. It doesn't even have to be SN/GF-5. You can use SN/GF-5, one that is SN and A5/B5, SN and C3, and even CK-4/SN like I'm using now.

Though I also disagree with having to use "ester" oil....Nissan OEM oil is cheaper than dirt on amazon/ebay so you shouldnt be slave to the dealer.

Thanks. I might not have been concerned were it not for this new engine and wondering if it had “special needs.” But if the manual is worded same as past Nissan/Infiniti manuals, less of a concern. Do you know who actually makes the OEM branded oil? Again, thanks.

I don't have anything technical to add to this thread other than to say welcome back! I was looking through some old GC posts the other day and saw your comments on some of them, and then noticed that you hadn't posted on this site since 2016. So don't go disappearing on us again old friend! Cheers2

And congrats on the new car! Let's see some pics!

Thanks so much Patman. Life has a way of taking us in and out of things as I am sure you know. Still “Vetting” I see. I still consider the GC period a life highlight. Was great fun. I was looking over the Castrol website. What a ton of oils they sell now. Wow, Bio even!

I really liked this vehicle, but it didn't past my loaded double ski bag in the cargo area with only half the rear seat folded down test.
I'm sure it would have been tons of fun to drive.

V_P,

Have only had it a day but the test drive showed great promise. We are looking forward to it. As much a computer as an automobile! Had our FX-35 for ten years (117,000 miles) and except for an airbag recall only needed scheduled mx—no repairs—during that entire period. I like to think its steady diet of (mostly) original GC had something to do with it. Sorry the car didnt work out for you.

It sure was! Reading those old threads in a strange way sort of helped give me the inspiration to switch my wife's BMW from M1 0w40 over to German Castrol 0w40. Hopefully it's still made by magical elves!

happy

Congrats on your new QX50. That’s a really nice looking crossover. You’re right, they are half computer these days. I enjoy our CX5 with all its little niceties like heated seats and wheels. It really helps my old bones in the morning.

You have the new VC turbo engine? Keep us updated on how she runs. It’s sounds like a nice kit.

Yes it is the VC turbo. I am a pushover for turbos. I will post updates on its life. I have a stash of Mobil1 ESP 5W-30 that i got for a terrific price. Think it would like it?

Sounds like a winner.

It does seem like all these crossovers are looking very similar these days. Your front grill though defines your car.
