2007 Nissan Maxima- Best oil

nissan

#1

Dear Sir/ Madam: November 03, 2018
I’m the owner of Nissan Maxima V6 3.5 SL 2007 – 113.000 miles. I never paid attention about oil changes in my car more then 11 years…A few days ago I visit an European Car Center with German workers as well…(I know very well German too…)
The manager have found out that my car will run better with the Rowe German Syntetic Oil Change…and I should change oil next time by 7.000 miles again…

When I called Nissan Corporate Office Service Center, they told me that I should use the manufacture oil 5W-30.

Until today, I have no idea which kind of oil the mechanics specialists put into my motor.

In this moment I am confused because I realy don’t know what is the best oil for my car…

Thank you for you attention and cooperation,

First of all you need to edit your post. It is never a good idea to put your full name and email on an open web site.
Why would you even ask about what oil to use after talking to the people who made your vehicle. And no your car will not run better . You did not say what schedule you used in the past so if you must change then use the proper oil and change at 5000 miles or 6 months which ever comes first.

@cdaquila Edit time?

HELLO,

THE MAIN ISSUE IS THAT I TRUST PEOPLE (MECHANICS TOO…) BECAUSE I ASSUME THEY WILL DO THE BEST TO MY CAR…

ALSO, THEY DON’T ALLOW ME TO SEE WHAT THEY DO…NO WONDER i AM CONFUSED AND FRUSTRATED TO LEARN WHICH OIL CHANGES NEED MY SPECIFIC CAR AND IF THEY PUT THE RIGHT OIL AS WELL…

TILL NOW, I CHANGED OIL EVERY 3000 MILES. NOW THE NEW MECHANIC FROM GERMANY PUT THE ROE GERMAN SYNTETIC OIL AND TOLD ME TO THE NEXT 7.000 MILES TO CHANGE OIL AGAIN.

I KNOW THAT NISSAN RECOMMENDED THE 5W-30…

BECAUSE I AM CONFUSE, I ASK YOUR OPINION.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME,

BARRY NOBLE

I believe that if you research the produce that was used you may find that it exceeds the oil quality required by Nissan, the telephone receptionist that you spoke to will not research this for you. If you call Nissan you can expect to be told to use Nissan products and not a substitute.

If you don’t trust your mechanic to use the oil weight that is shown on the invoice maybe you should change the oil yourself.

That is because of their insurance coverage , non-employees are not to be in the shop work area . That is policy almost at every shop. Some people associate posts with all capital letters as yelling , me I don’t care but you might refrain from all caps.

Let me guess, Barry. The German owners of this auto repair shop are willing to sell you the German oil that they are so fond of, right?

Thank you for your time.

This mechanic take care on my car in general almost two months. A few days he suggested me for oil changes as well, because this was the right time, he said to me…Then he recommended to me this specific oil - ROWE GERMAN SYNTHETIC OIL - and I accepted, because I trust him as a mechanic specialist…I trust the other mechanics too…who changed my oil already 11 years! However, never I was thinking how important it is, and what is the best oil changes for my specific Nissan Maxima 2007 with 113.000 mileage…

No wonder that I am concern which oil or gasoline I should use…For me the money is not the issue - -The quality and the honesty, yes!!!

I also know, that my manufacture want to make money too in my pocket, so this is my dilemma, and this was my interest to contact you in order to get your professional advice as a mechanic specialist.

Thank you for your attention and cooperation,

Paul.

There will be no benefit of using this expensive oil every 7000 miles, compared to the recommended oil every 3000 miles. None at all.


#10

This original poster has signed off with 2 different first names . And keeps referencing a brand of oil. I think this is 'Stealth Spamming '.

Yes, close the door before driving.
Note, OP never mentioned the oil viscosity.
