Sooooo speaking of maintenance. I did my first oil change today at 500 miles.
I am doing the hard break-in this time, so I wanted to get on it early.
Anyway, someday I hope to meet the guy who designed the front skidplate and oil filter access door so I can kick him in the nuts.
The skid plate is so thin that when you reach your hand through the access door it is literally razor sharp.
Funny story. Part 2 - - I sold a first Gen XTerra right before we got this truck. Gave the kid all the accessories to go with it, including a couple of oil filters I had on hand.
Get to the store to look up the part number for the new truck. Yup. Same as the old one. (groan) I was really expecting Nissan to go with something larger this time. Oh well, at least they ran 5.4 quarts, instead of 3.3 like before. So that's an improvement.
