That is what they say. If an aftermarket happen to be the same color how would they know? They going to send it to a lab for testing? Bastards, they will try to get out of paying for anything.
Lemme know how many quarts that gets ya. (wait, lemme tell you ----> 0.0)...Using this logic, I will be going to the local dealership and picking up my free Matic J...
hold no meaning. Since the equivalent of Nissan ATF is available on the market. Nissan doesn't have to provide an ounce or drop of ATF fluid to anyone replacing fluid.The Magnuson Moss Act prohibits the manufacturer from requiring a consumer to use their product unless that product is provided at no charge.
I was searching Nissan service bulletins for another issue and came across this one...

Here it is.. NTBs/NTB08-049a.pdf
Given the transfer case is bolted to the 5AT RWD transmission...it applies.I see a whole bunch of CVT. Seeing as how the frontiers aren't CVT... or FWD. I dont see how this applies to us.
I also do not see anything mentioned about 4WD A/T's.
Keeping receipts is a good idea, but actually not necessary. It is adequate to keep a log of what service was done. If you did it, write down in your service manual:i asked my dealer about switching to amsoil...they told me great!!! good choice!!! BUT keep my receipts for oil and filters and what not just to have a record to show in case nissan ever asked for it. They said they could care less but just to cover their *** just keep the receipts for nissan.
How is it that you came to this conclusion? Not arguing, just asking.It is a product that is inferior to or at the very best, equal to products that are sold at a lower price.
That's an experience countering what everyone says about Mobil 1 but since it's what you observed I will keep it in mind for when mine needs changing. Thanks for posting your results.I replaced the manual transmission fluid in my 6spd at 35K with Mobil1 synthetic and absolutely hated it. Shifting gears notchy and stiff especially on a cold morning. I drained it after a week and replaced it with whatever Nissan sells and it was immediately back to a smooth shifting experience. Not sure why that is.
