My car (Q30 2016 2.2D auto awd) is coming up for 6 years old and has done 43,000 miles.
According to the service schedule, is is due a DCT gearbox oil change at either 5 years old or 60,000 miles, presumably whichever comes soonest.
My authorised Infinity dealership has quoted me over £500 for the work to be done, which seems a bit on the steep side.
Does anyone have a view on this? I’d appreciate opinions on a) the cost and b) whether it is strictly necessary, given the relatively low mileage of the car.

If you are planning to keep the car then get the gearbox serviced.
These are premium cars, the box is I think £££ several thousand to replace.
Its 2x filters buried inside the box and a load of expensive oil.
Your dealer can read the oil level via software which is critical and will do an adaptive reset where the box recalibrates the gearchanges. £500 is a good price for warrantied work and peace of mind?

Hope this helps 👋

Thanks for that Cornish. I tend to agree, I will get it done before too long.

Congrats, that is a killer price. I think that's worth a drive and an overnight stay for other forum members at that price Steve. Good find matey 🖐.

Hi Steve

did you get this done in the end; and was it from Nissan?
I’m trying to get mine done too and wondering if I should get my family mechanic (who is brilliant) to do it and I supply everything, or my local Nissan (Infiniti approved) dealer, but unfortunately they are well and truly useless!
Thanks
