Engine oil specification wrong in 2013 user manual

I wanted to point out that the oil spec for the 2.0L I4 engine is incorrect in the 2013 manual. The manual shows 5 3/8 quarts for a full oil change with filter. I poured in 5 quarts and the dipstick indicated the engine was overfilled. I looked up the 2015 manual, and the 2015 manual indicates 4 5/8 quarts (the engine from 2013 is the exact same as the one used in 2014 and 2015). Accordingly, I removed about 1/2 quart down to about 4.5 quarts and the dipstick showed the oil was within acceptable limits.

That's a really big miss on Nissan's part. Overfilling the engine can damage it, and people rely on the user manual for the correct amount of oil to add to the engine.
