re: CVT engineering.
I would think the CVT is not set to 2-8 speeds as it is a variable transmission.
For eons the DAF in Holland have been using CVTs. A vehcile in Germany called the Ro80 used it as well as using a rotory engine.

#52 of 112 How much is the oil change and 15k 30k service?
Jul 26, 2011 (9:21 am)
I just bought A Nissan Quest SL, and added the Maintenance Plus service plan. At the time I signed the contract, I was told the new generation quest uses different motor oil, and cost $100+ for each oil change at 3 months or 3750 miles. Then, I called 5 different dealers today for a service quote, 3 of them told me it costs $80-100, but 2 of them said the new quest use the same motor oil just like the previous model, and only cost $20 dollars for the oil change. If that is true, I have to cancel the maintenance plus plan, anyone know how to cancel that? help please!

The cost of the oil aside, the frequency is NOT 3 months or 3750 miles. I can only believe this figure comes from dealers who are looking to make extra $$. Today's oil change interval based on mileage is close to three times that.

I'd check the specs in the owners manual...see the exact type of oil required and call a couple places.
I recall VW's have a specific type of oil required for their turbo's (certain type of synthetic).
Can't see anything but 5w30 for this...but who knows. I was just a Sears getting a battery...saw a "bulk" oil change...3 oil changes for $50
#55 of 112 Had my oil changed last month
Jul 26, 2011 (3:54 pm)
I have a 2011 LE, with Service plan. The bill showed normal price: $20.00 from my dealer. I go in for 7K next week.
Manual shows 5W-30, nothing special.
#56 of 112 2011 Nissan Quest Conversation Mirror
Aug 04, 2011 (8:46 pm)
My new Quest has the conversation mirror instead of the sunglasses holder. I personally think the mirror is a gimmick and is supposed to enable viewing of activity in the 2nd and 3rd rows. The wide angle reduces the lmage so much I really can tell much of anything with it. I would much rather have the sunglasses holder. Can the conversation mirror be replaced with the sunglasses holder in thr SL model?
