    oil change and...did I do filter right?

    So I went ahead and did the first oil change at 2k miles. Mobil 1 5w30. I used to use it in my 2002 Maxima and drove it to high mileage, so I believe in it. Ok, so I made the stupid mistake of not paying close attention to the "before", so two questions? 1) Does it matter which way you...

    First oil change

    Some people on this forum have mentioned changing their oil at about 1000 miles. The manufacturer recommends 7500, and even my dealer recommended not doing an early first one (although they recommend 5000 interval). So what is the justification for doing or not doing this early oil change?
  4. Can you change audio system default mode settings?

  7. Please tell me there's a way to change this...

    Bluetooth switching to FM/AM at startup I listen to music/podcasts via Bluetooth about 98% of the time in the car. It seems that when you turn the car off it defaults back to AM/FM and you have to manually switch it to Bluetooth every time. Is there a way to change this?

    Using paddles to change gear.

    Hi all, I love the gear change feature using the paddles. Thing is, if I use the paddle, the transmission changes from 'D' to the gear number chosen. To get back into 'D', you have to leave the paddles alone for a short time period. Is there a way to switch back to 'D' manually?

    Hello fellow Genesis drivers, I just changed my oil with Mahle Oil Filter kit which came with the filter, oil pan plug crush washer, big o-ring that goes around the oil filter cap and a small o-ring which I ended up not using.

  16. Oil Change @ Dealership

    They wanted $120 for synthetic blend. Said because it's 10quarts not 5. This sounds absurd to me. Is this normal? Of course, I refused. But, do people actually pay this?

    We have the 3.8 AWD. Has about 4500 miles. Was going to change with full synth at around 6K. Dealer gave me first oil change (after 6mo) free but didn't specify synth or reg. Once dealer changes it I'll probably change myself as I engoy doing it - unless full syth price is too reasonable to...
