Default Oil change

Hello

In the Q50,

is it a computer that calculate with different factor when you need to do an oil change or is it like every 4 000 miles ? On my g37X 2010 it was every 3750 miles. I think, compare to competition, it was due at a very low mileage

i would change it the first 2500 miles just to get all the new metals out of its system or whatever, then i do it every 3000-5000 miles depending on how hard those miles were driven thats just me

Remember, the only oil you can use in the Q50 is synthetic. Even if you drive it hard, synthetics are rated at 5,000 miles - many manufacturers have extended oil changes to 7,500 miles.

I have had other Infinitis and always used Mobile 1 synthetic 5/30, changed oil/filter every 5k miles/6 months with zero issues. Q50 has the least maintenance of all the Infinitis.

There are four maintenance plans(Basic, Basic+Plus, Standard, and Premium). We were given the Basic, which covers only oil and filter changes and tire rotation. I'm quoting from the Basic Maintenance Agreement that was received as compensation for the long wait:

This plan pays for oil changes using regular(conventional petroleum-based) engine oil. Your Infiniti retailer may offer you semi-synthetic or full synthetic oil, or Genuine Infiniti ester oil, neither of which is covered by this service agreement, but is available for the additional cost of the alternative oil at the time of each oil change.

Either the synthetic isn't required, or our "free, two-year maintenance agreement" isn't free. OR, your dealer will use synthetic anyway, and not charge you for it. It will be interesting to see what eventually happens.

I just looked at the manual again, and admit I may have read the standards incorrectly.

I thought I had read somewhere that American Petroleum Institute Certified, Resource Conserving, oil was synthetic.

I can't find the source where I read that, so I will retract my earlier statement.

Having said that, I will only put synthetic in my vehicle.

You can get synthetic for so cheap nowadays anyways. I don't see the point in cheaping out.
