Hello! I have a 2013 Altima 3.5 SL (sedan). Every shop that I have had change my oil overfills my car by 1-2 quarts. I’ve been to many different shops, but every single shop overfills the engine unless I specifically tell them to be careful. Has anybody else ran into this problem? When I return my car to have them drain out some of the oil to the correct level, they’re always surprised that it’s overfilled. I’m not sure why this happens (almost) every time I get my oil changed. Anybody else have this problem?

Some Nissans with various motors are oddball to have different capacity pans that hold different oil amounts and the way they are dispersed seems to make no sense. Maybe Nissan using up leftover pans on next year model to get rid of them? I have the same trouble in Versa which does the same thing, one pan size is not mentioned hardly at all but people complain about your issue.
