What is this discussion about?

Service engine light came on after I have replaced the regular gas cap with a secure one(aftermarket).Nissan does not offer a secured(one which opens with a key-not a small detail if you park in an inner city) gas cap.

I've joined the club. Have wanted a Nissan all my life, and now I have one. Came out of an '08 Mazda 5 Grand Touring (that I absolutely LOVED), and now I'm in a 2011 Nissan Rogue SV AWD w/SL package in Black Amethyst with the light gray interior. This black amethyst color is HOT and it really just "makes" the car. It's nice in other colors, but IMO it jumps up to another league with the amethyst. My family (wife and two kids) has named her "Black Betty."
So far, I'm loving the car. Only has 100 miles on it, now. The seats are supremely comfortable (though a bit too high, for my taste), the ride is exceedingly smooth, there's adequate room in all seating positions, it feels solid and strong when you drive it, it's fast enough, it looks outstanding (a really good looking crossover, especially with the new 18" rims and the aforementioned color), it feels luxurious and more expensive than what it is, and it has goodies galore (leather, sunroof, rich-sounding Bose, Nav, iPod integration, back-up camera, satellite radio, USB, Aux, Trip Computer, Xenon lights, foglights, power everything, nice gauges, lockable AWD, traction control, etc.) especially for the price!
Negatives are minor and few: (1) my main gripe is with the lack of functionality of the rear seat, i.e., it doesn't slide fore and aft or recline, and NO REAR ARMREST! What's up with THAT? Seriously? Thank goodness it's a very comfortable seat with gobs of room to make up for it; (2) I'm not crazy about the steering feel. Coming off of a Mazda (who, to me, has steering feel down PAT), it's a bit of a let-down. But, I have yet to drive the Rogue for a long while on the highway, and in the twisties, etc., so my opinion of it, most likely, will improve. You know it HANDLES very well, but you just can't feel that through the steering wheel; (3) Although Black Betty feels powerful and fast enough (moreso than my last Mazda), it seems to take a bit of time for the engine and tranny to spool up accelarating from a stop. So, it makes you think for a brief moment that it's underpowered, but then it HITS and you hear the engine growl and, before you know it, you're at speed. I guess I'll get used to it; and (4) The Rogue doesn't have enough cubbies and compartments to put all your stuff, though it makes up for it with a HUGE glovebox and a nice-sized center console.
All-in-all, we're loving it. We'll miss Max (my Mazda5's name) a lot. But, Betty will make that loss much more bearable, and I'm sure I'll grow to really like her, too. Happy to finally be in the Nissan club!
