When is the first oil change on QX60?

Right now I'm at 4000 miles and just wondering when do you change the oil? Is it around 7k? I thought you get a reminder to change the oil?

Unless you tell the center console to remind you (under the maintenance function), you won't have a reminder.

The printed maintenance guide says either 3,500 or 7,000 depending on which plan you choose to follow. Dealership will always recommend the lower side, however the manufacturer will typically recommend the higher side unless you're an abnormal driver (e.g. excessive driving, daily dirt roads, etc...)

Don't buy the 3k oil change hype.

I did my first one at 2500 miles and plan to do it every 5000 miles from then on.

I tell all my clients and personally do 5000 miles or 6 months. It all depends on the oil you are using, how you drive, conditions where you live, etc.

What type of oil does the dealership use? Is it semi synthetic?

I was told every 5000 miles and that they use semi synthetic. After my one free oil change I'm just going to do full synthetic changes, semi is a complete waste imo.

My dealer in Canada sets the reminder to 6000 kms (approx 3800 miles). For my free oil changes they used regular oil and I have now put I synthetic with intention of going 6200 miles or one year

never had issues with that length and synthetic Much better cold start in minus 25 lol

Thxs folks for the information. shoot for 5K.
its cool that I can get it service at any Nissan dealers too. I don't have local dealership that is highly recommend, nearest is 25 miles and Nissan is only 6 miles from my house.

Do you recommend taking to Nissan dealership or Infinity?

My experience is to take the Infiniti to your Infiniti dealership when you have quality issues, recalls or warranty. Unless they can match the price of your Nissan dealership since you live far from Infiniti, I'd take it to Nissan for general maintenance. I do like the level of service I get at Infiniti however. In my case, I just don't like the continuous turnover in my dealership's staff. It doesn't make me feel warm and fuzzy.

For general maintenance service, I will take it to Nissan dealer because the nearest Infiniti dealer has a bad reviews on their service dept. The recommend dealer is about 25 miles out.
