About Nissan GT-R

At just under $112,000, Nissan’s high-performance GT-R sports coupe for 2017 isn’t exactly what we’d call a bargain. That is until you begin to compare the GT-R’s performance, technology and build quality to such established exotic names as Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini and Aston Martin. With its 565-horsepower twin-turbo V6, sophisticated all-wheel-drive setup and abundance of electronic assists, Nissan’s GT-R high-performance coupe for 2017 has earned its place among the great performance cars of our time. For those who seek the ultimate thrill ride, the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo is a track-ready 600-horsepower beast. And while most of the GT-R’s closest competitors can’t touch its pricing, Chevrolet’s impressive Corvette Z06 is not only much more affordable, it is also more readily available.

"This car is awsome. Controls are fairly intutive and the acceleration is just out of this world. Comfort mode still leaves you in a sports car - bit smoother but still rougher than most cars."

"Driven for 11000 miles so far. Excellent reliability. early models (2009) can update to current TCM which is program to control rpm limit on launching to protect the transmission from potential wear. This works fine and still allows for 0-60 time of 3.3 seconds. Also has ignition switch technical bulletin to change this part due to failure of part that causes key to be not recognized. I never had trouble. OK to daily drive and I get 20 to 22 mpg in mixed driving all the time using auto transmission but I am easy on the gas. Others report 16+ mpg with aggressive driving in manual mode. Comfort is best on smooth roads and is firm but OK, more stiff than most sports cars due to 20" runflats. I have lowering springs and kept stock shocks and doing very well, better comfort and better handling. Easy to upgrade midpipe for more midrange rpm power and easy to add Cobb Access port for ECU MAP upgrade but it can void warranty so decide for yourself. Easy to get dyno up to 500+ HP with minor upgrades. Maintenance about $150 per oil change every 3000-6000 miles but trans and diff oil change at 18000 miles can be over $1000+. Reg cost of new runflats every 12000-14000 miles is about $1500. Brakes are about $5000 but not until 30000 miles. Rear seats are usable but small with tight headroom. Front seats comfortable and firm. Bose audio is adequate and better with added sound deadening in rear seat and trunk areas."
