I did my first oil change! Whats next?

Hello All,

I purchased my 2012 Nissan Armada not so long ago at 155k. It is now at 160k and finally performed my oil change + oil filter over the weekend. Not sure how everyone else does it but i did not use a jack. I simply went underneath the car, removed the cover / metal plate (not sure the formal name for this but it was a bit of a pain for 1 person) and drained the oil. I must say, the labor was not so bad.

Here is what i used
Oil: Mobil 1 5W-30 Full Synthetic Motor Oil - I used about 6.5 qt.
Oil Filter: Mobil 1 Extended Performance Oil Filter

My main questions is, I want to make sure I am doing all the other maintenance plan accordingly. All i know how to do is the oil change and replacing the oil filter. What other routine Maintenance should i be doing myself or taking it into the dealership? I am not an auto person but slowly learning, however i dont want to tackle something like replacing transmission fluid or you know, whatever that would normally be done. I plan to keep this bad boy running for the long haul + with having kids, i would like to keep this at its best safest state.

FYI - The manual / maintenance plan books was not equipped with the purchase of this car.

thank you all in advance!

Owners manuals can be downloaded from Nissan. Maintenance schedules are included in the manuals.

Oh yes. That is definitely typo. I meant to write 100,000 miles, not 1 million miles. It would be a miracle to see 1 million miles on my Armada.

I hope the thread would be useful to you.
