    600000 kilometers, that's only about 375,000 miles. I just retired an '88 Ford Escort a few years ago that had 518,xxx miles (833,000 kl) without a rebuild. It was still running when I parked it but the fuel pump was soon going to need replacing which meant dropping the fuel tank again (no access under the back seat) and the oil pan was going to have to come off because it was losing oil pressure and that including unbolting and removing the catalytic converter. I know the oil pressure problem was the screen in the oil pick-up tube needed cleaning because it had happened once before. The Escort was driven on dusty construction sites from day 1 until I became disabled in 2000 and lots of dirt got collected in the engine over the years and had begun turning loose. Being disabled with chronic back pain I didn't feel like doing the work and wasn't going to pay someone $50-100/hr. to work on a car with a 1/2 million miles on it. The Ford recommended oil on it was 5w30 but I'd always used 10w40 so that's what I ran in the Escort year around. I still run conventional 10w40 in all 5 of my cars including the '16 Versa and change it and filter every 5000 miles (8000 kl). I just changed the oil in the Versa about 500 miles ago and even at 5000 miles the old oil looked pretty clean when it was draining and was only slightly dark when I got some on my hand while removing the filter. I'm not going to do it but I wouldn't be surprised if I had an oil analysis done and they told me the oil would have been good for 1-2 thousand more miles. It doesn't happen very often but there have been a few instances where I wouldn't think about the oil change on a car and the car go 7-8 miles before I realized it was due.

    Japan has been using 0w-16 for a couple of decades now so I went to Japans website and found not only types of oil they used in Versa Note and Juke but they have 4WD for the March over their in Japan. Now I feel ripped off and screwed once again in Canada. Anyways here is a pic on the owner manual oil type for the 2019 Note Name:  Japan Nissan Note 2019.jpg

    They still use 5W-30 for the HR16DE engine. What I find it interesting that the HR12DE uses 0w-20 while the turbo version uses 0w-16

    Here is the Japans 2018 Juke

    Here at the bottom of this picture it says
    HR15DE、MR16DDT パドルシフト無車:0W-20
    MR16DDT パドルシフト付車:5W-30

    which translates
    Viscosity: Use the following viscosity (SAE standard).
    HR15DE, MR16DDT without paddle shift: 0W-20
    MR16DDT with paddle shift: 5W-30

    Heres a picture for kicks

    I wonder what the longevity implications are for ever-thinner oils. People tend not to drive their cars very far in Japan - not uncommon to see normal 15 year old cars for export with 50 or 70k on them.

    You guys realize that Toyota North America has been running 0W16 for a year or so in almost every model, right?
