    Re: Do not launch your GTR witth VDC OFF

    The GT-R situation is turning into a farce.

    Lots of impressionable and gullible people in this world, unfortunately.

    Re: Do not launch your GTR witth VDC OFF

    What do you expect? It's a NISSAN!

    Re: Do not launch your GTR witth VDC OFF

    What a joke.

    Re: Do not launch your GTR witth VDC OFF

    At least BMW warned customers about warranty issues you'd face for destroying their cars with launch control.

    Re: Do not launch your GTR witth VDC OFF

    In my understanding, Nissan's VDC is the equivalent of a ESP/PSM? ... and if you turn it off not only do you void warranty but also may seriously damage the car?...

    I guess that its why its so cheap, Nissan has made the first "disposable" sportcar it should have a sticker that reads "best use before: a few laps at the track, some driving with the VDC off, or 3000km of hard street use"

    Seriously all this stuff makes you wonder what the second price of these GT-Rs will be after a couple of years

    Very nice line you came up with! Very successful

    Do not launch your GTR witth VDC OFF

    Uh Oh!

    Not sure but, since racing our cars on a track voids _OUR_ warranty does that mean if we get caught using the dash wart (there to time laps) is our warranty voided?


    Oh, $20K replacement tranny explains why GTRs MSRP price is very low: Nissan expects to make significant additional profits off of repairs.

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    My guess these babies won't hold their value at all!
    It will be the biggest "used car gamble" you can have!
    Mileage won't mean a thing...

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    The GTR is one hell of car that no one likes, if its getting so much attention on this forum. I kinda don't want the GTR to dominate this forum but I guess it pushes people's buttons to much. We have to find a advise post from a GTR forum to make us feel better. The GTR is starting to become the Sarah Palin of sportscars.

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    I would have said the obama of sports cars - lots of empty promises

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    The GTR's warranty specifically states that the warranty is voided when you drive with the VDC off (except in the stated allowable conditions) !!

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!




    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    I wonder if the Veyron has this kind of issue with their DSG. I've been told that they're transmission's are similar to the GTR even though the Buggatti's DSG is made from Ricardo.

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    The fact that Nissan states in the manual that "Turning VDC off will void your warranty" is a MAJOR turn-off!

    Imagine finding this info in your Porsche, Audi, BMW, Lambo Manual?? Would you buy the car? I certainly wouldn't. I track my Audi R8 at least once a month and hasn't missed a beat. Ditto for my Porsche/BMW Track buddies!

    from another board

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    For all the hype Nissan put into the car, for them to essentially say "oh, if you try to replicate our numbers and something breaks, you're on your own" borders on gross misrepresentation of their product IMHO.

    Nissan engineers know how weak the GR6 is(you haven't paid them enough yet) I think they're selling their Nurburgring time 7.38, otherwise why would such a page even exist ?


    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    What a thread, what a car, what a transmission.
    Lots of laugh
    There was such an enormous pressure on this car, the baloon must have blown one day.

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    Definitely get this checked out before buying a second hand one....in fact don't...

    Very poor indeed.

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    Any relation of this car to the old Japanese monster film science fiction genre?

    You know, buildings seem real, monsters seem real at first glance.

    When the movie starts everybody's scared (especially the Germans in this GTR case ) and at the end, when the battle starts the cheapness and stuck-together-ness of the set becomes laughable and fun?

    Remember: the apparently self-destructing GTR is based on the Gundam comic strip involving giant robot monsters and battles.


    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    Just to add to this. It appears that the OP had lets say slightly abused the car and had done multiple LC starts. Perhaps just over zealous with it!

    I feel for him, but the GT-R is becoming very expensive to own.

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    The 2 words NISSAN + GTR(Please refer to the letter F) can be looked up in the dictionary as "F R A G I L E" starting from today

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    I hope someone didn't intentionally try to ruin a GTR to show others what a bad product it is, because that would be a big NO NO if you are a car guy in any sense of the word. Porsche PDK and Nissan DSG are both tested in years of racing. (DSG=Rally PDK=Porsche 956)

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    Nissan had a rally car fitted with DSG back then ?

    What happened to Mitsubishi and Subaru ?

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    Hmmm, me thinks people are bashing the hell out of their very young transmissions and doing some things multiple times that even Nissan says to maybe only do a few.

    I find it very hard to believe at this point in time, a manufacture would purposely release a vehicle with known weaknesses.

    Especially a vehicle with this many eyes on it.

    It could be a subcontractor fault. It could be an engineering issue. (Think how the orginal E46 M3 engines would grenade themselves when it was revved too high while cold)


    But we'll see ...

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    R32 had a weak transmission
    R33 - 3rd gear would'nt hold up if power shifted + they didn't bother to install an oil cooler for the first 1~2yrs(if it's staying inside Japan why bother?)

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    Nissan didn't, but the DSG created by Borg Werner had its hand in the old rally winning Audis.

    Re: USE OF SC WART VOIDS OUR WARRENTY??!

    You do have to understand that the price you're paying has alot to do with the DSG quality and Nissan isn't the best example in giving you Quality and Reliability at the same time.

    I do have to contest this statement: i owned a 300ZX tt in 1990, had 100k on the counter, never, ever had any problem. This was the less expensive car considering cost after sale.
    Only the brakes weren't up to the job.
