I don't think I will do it myself but just took mine to the dealer for an oil change and the bill was ridiculous $117 just for an oil change. $52 for labor and $48 on parts LOL !! please.

Correct the turbo boost gauge and one other screen showing g-force are only found in the F-Sport.

Seems like a quality piece. Should make oil changes super easy. On top of that I am replacing the dain bolt with a fumoto valve so it should be even faster/mess free.

Wife's NX is approaching am oil change shortly so will finally get to use the tool.

When we went to the dealer for her first complementary service the person behind us wanted an oil change and the dealer quoted the person $145+ tax. And the person was completely cool with it and said go ahead...yikes!

Firm believer in doing most maintenance if you can, that way the lowest paid person at the dealer isn't stripping/cross threading bolts and screwing stuff up for you in the future..lol

Yeah, the place right next door to me wanted $101.50 for an oil change. I know up front I'm paying more for the tool, the floor jack, the jack stands, the oil drain pan, etc. but in the long run it will be cheaper. Plus I know it will be done right!

Just don't forget one very important thing.
When you DIY maintenance, you MUST have receipts to prove that it was done and done with generally acceptable materials. Or, they may question warranty.

Hi Carlolexus,

Can I ask you to take a picture of the cover that you talked about?

I have my nx 300h 2018, and I have double checked, and there is no a plash cover. I did my first oil change at the dealer on Jan. 2019 and I suspect the tech did not put it back. Before going to complain and blame them I would like to make sure that there is one. What's sure is sine I did my 1st oil change, it seems I hear more road noise.

Thanks in advance.

Did you use a special oil funnel to get the oil in? The reason I ask is that when I remove the oil cap, there's a piece of metal that blocks a funnel tip from being inserted. I ended up spilling oil ALL over the place! (See below).

Yes, any funnel will work, but I'm surprised by the design. That piece of metal is preventing a funnel from getting down in the hole and I have to pour the oil in SLOWLY. I can't just tilt the bottle of oil and let it flow in.

Take a funnel and heat the end of it with either a lighter or heat gun. Then simply squeeze the funnel end slightly so it goes around that metal piece. Should take 20 seconds or so to do, then you can just pour oil in the funnel as usual since it's avoiding that spot. I have several funnels specifically for certain vehicles because of this. Whether it's the tranny fill port or something else. Funnels are cheap and easy to adapt to a specific vehicle.

Motive tools makes a funnel that screws into the oil filler cap, I highly recommended it.
https://www.motivxtools.com/collecti...-oil-fill-caps I also have the Ez 103RH oil drain valve ,it works great , I connect a clear vinyl hose hose to the end to avoid any splashes CTA tools makes a solid steel oil filter wrench and if I had not gotten the aluminum one already this would be my choice!

Yes, I saw the MotivX funnel that screws onto the oil hole. I also saw where it was Sold Out. Ha ha! I guess I'm not the only one with this problem.

Any clue as to whether this fits a 2017 NX200t? I checked on the website but only saw where it DIDN'T fit a Prius or Toyotas with a "half-turn" oil cap (whatever that is).

Thanks!
