Video, My New GT-R

Hey Folks, just picked up my new Super Silver GT-R in Atlanta. It's headed to Los Angeles now and should be here tomorrow and at Willow Springs Raceway on Wednesday!

Managed to put 500 miles on it in two days in Atlanta having way too much fun. Here is a video my friends did before loading it up on the hauler.

enjoy

Bit of a Internet misconception, but If you read the warranty booklet you'll see it doesn't "void" your warranty. But they will not cover damages (i.e. fried clutch) caused by VDC off failures.

Have been since Early July. My Car is in the mid 500's, so it was one of the first. It was suposed to have been delivered on July 8, but got held up at Port for a Month, I have a sneaking suspicion something was wrong with the paint and they had to re-shoot it. I guess next up is Europe, right?

Shinkaze, i must admit that i am a little confused re warranty validation and use of launch control: Is there a clear definition of such? thanks

dang, I have a hard time wrapping my head around that - fully legal, US market GT-Rs. I mean, I've known for ages that they were coming, but the mindset that we Americans have had for so long...that the GT-R was illegal, f*cking Homeland Security going around and seizing people's Skylines...and now you can bop on down to the Nissan dealer and just...buy one? In the same way you'd buy an Altima?

The owner's manual states that VDC should only be set into "off" mode for specific situations. turning the VDC *MAY* initiate exclusions in warranty coverage, the warranty booklet elaborates further.

When you read the warranty booklet, there are two specific sections that talk about the VDC off. The first states that failures caused during operation of the car with VDC off, or because of abuse would not be covered. For example, the transmission blows up because of repeated launch control launches. The transmission repair would not be covered under warranty. conversely if the stereo stopped playing, it would be hard to argue that was because the VDC was turned off and therefore would still be covered. However, that same abuse clause does cover the stereo as well. If you put the volume at max, and blew out your speakers, the dealership could argue abuse there as well.

All cars have an abuse clause in their warranty coverage.

The second area is in the tire warranty. It states that excessive wear in normal operation is considered a failure and covered for warranty replacement, UNLESS the failure is caused by "excessive tire spin". The only way to induce excessive tire spin by turning the VDC off.
