Take a look at this thread:

As long as the seller can have the black box interrogated to prove the warrenty is still valid and show that the car has had all is scheduled maintenance, sounds like a winner!

yes someone on here already said that they are NOT dropping in price more then $10k but as you can see in my other thread " GT-R's found under $70K " you will see i am correct!

the lowest i have seen one is $60k and the normal MSRP on them is over $80k so its MORE then $20k off for a lightly used one with under 10k miles!!!

the GT-R is not even a full year old yet and selling used for that much under MSRP so again not a great sign and i wouldn't be surprised to see one with a voided warranty selling in the mid $40k range or lower

Do you even bother to read what anyone else posts? I'm starting to wonder if you are really interested in the car, or if you are trolling to pass the time. Buy the car, or don't buy the car. But ffs, quit laboring over the decision.

Go and do some research on the 5 year value projection for 10 sports cars that base above 75k. Note that they will all have a similar 5 year resale curve to a GT-R. If the 5 year resale is a big deal for you, then you probably can't afford the car anyway.

I bought the GTR for the same reason everyone else did. Claims of spectacular performance for 70K. And thats what you get? A 70K "Super Car". No such thing. Doesn't fit the definition. And now, based on the header of this thread, I can't track it with out voiding my warranty. Before I knew this, I was fine with all the claims people were making about a glass tranny. That's what happens when you abuse a car, they break. But, for Nissan to make this a mandate, throws a flag on the field in my opinion. What are they hiding? Is the transmission weak and unable to handle the stress of a track day. My insurance company will cover damage at a track as long as an instructor is in the car. They consider it a School. But when I go to change the oil after "school", the tech plugs in the car and finds data that represents abuse. Now I lose my warranty. BS. I talked to my dealer and my mechanic after reading this thread. They were both very concerned about having to find a buyer for my MY09 GTR with low miles. They don't like what they are hearing form NNA either. Makes it harder to sell a car when someone comes in and says "I heard you can lose your warranty buy driving Spirited". No other make that I have owned or owned currently has ever put such restrictions on a car. And I will not calm down. I have 1.5 tons of useless Japanese metal in my garage. No, I don't need LC. And, NO! It isn't that quick. I could shorten the gearing in an E46 M3 and come up with similar numbers to the GTR. By the way. They had Slicks on the GTR at the Ring. That's how they beat the 997.
thanks so much for all the information man, Nissan GTR Waste of Money

Oh, the never-ending bitterness (and endless hyper-misinformation) of the Porsche-philes, still in denial that the GT-R bested them on their home court, and for a fraction of the price. So pitiful. Nothing against Porsches; they're great and have been for decades. But give Godzilla its due, and stop with the endless mis-information.

And Spoiled can get the bargain-priced used car he wants. Then maybe they could both stop ranting mis-information on this thread.

AGREED!! If you have something against the GT-R, sell it and be over it. If you want to abuse a new car, don't cry like a baby when your warranty is denied. BASTA!

One other thing, not sure where you live, but in PA and NJ the GTR is a rare sight on the road.
So far, NO OTHER CAR that I have owned has generated as much attention and interest as the GTR when I drive it.
The car may not, in stock tires, live up to the road holding generated by racing slicks, but it MORE than makes up for it in people flocking to look it over.
The GTR is a great sports car. It's not perfect, but what it does well more than makes up for its shortcomings.
If you are really mad at your money, and have to get rid of it, go for the exotics and "pasta-burners" from the Italians.
You will spend alot of it with them and hopefully you will feel better when you're done.....

I recall first seeing the above warrantee disclaimer when it was posted related to the 2010 models when they were first becoming available. I have a 2009 and the warrantee does NOT exclude tracking the car.

even without my car there it was an awesome event. Hopefully I will be able to make an event that is closer by one day.

CajunGodzilla - I have a 09 as well and didnt see anything voiding the warranty via tracking, but will have to double check as mine is a later 09.

2009 covers tracking, driving schools, lapping days,

it does not cover competitive track racing, like, solo, time attacks and of course wheel to wheel racing


according to the warranty 2010 doesnt cover anything Off road of any kind


not sure how technical this gets and if there is really true legal difference between the two warranties or its just semantics but they are written differently

Thanks MC.

BTW, tracked my stock GT-R in a high-perf drivers-ed this past Sat at Autobahn in Joliet, IL (first time on track with the GT-R or anything else). Through the day we had runs in the damp, the wet, then drying, and then dry. AWESOME in all.

Did experience a tiny bit of brake fade at the end of the dry runs (after 20-25 mins). The chief instructor said he saw my brakes GLOWING ORANGE (i.e. a minimum of 1100 degF!)

But WOW. Never thought burning a full tank of gas at 6-7 mpg could be so much FUN. Its the only way to really experience our incredible car.

So I have one more question then, since my car is a 2009 and have a "little" more leway with my warranty would adding a cobb/midpipe/downpipe all but make that little benefit voided?

When I took delivery of my 2009 in Sep 2008, the dealer told me that I could replenish the windshield washer fluid, but that if I changed ANYTHING ELSE from stock(including oil, other fluids, brakes, suspension, wheels, tires, aero trim, intakes, exhausts, engine parts, engine controls), it would void the warranty. I have changed the wheels and tires anyway. I will also change to better brakes once they are worn, as I got into some brake fade during some track sessions.

But whatever you decide, DO TRACK IT. You'll be all
