why not start a thread here and ask people to add their names to it if they want to 'sign'

Then send the link to the thread and to the email address? That way if more people sign up Nissan will see that every time they check the link? Assuming they do check the link.

I agree, but maybe the forum admin should open such a thread...
I will sign that thread but I will also send an email directly to Nissan Europe...
I just have to find where I saved that Nissan Europe email address...
I guess you'd have to ask Guy if it's something he's willing to take to Nissan?

Guy?

If not, then it's up to us as individuals.

I sent a letter off to Nobles this morning.
Cheers Lindsay - look forward to hearing what David has to say.

I'm guessing he has to pass it on to Nissan GB - but i'd like to ask the same question as my car is my 2nd car and only gets used at weekends. So unless i do a few trips to London, i'm not going to get to 6k by March either.

Yeah right, wait till something goes wrong. I have raised this several times and it is very clear in the manual and the HPC's interpretation guide reveals you require a time based service every 6 months if you have not reached the millage that would trigger a service.

General guide and common sense repair, try that one with Nissan, BMW or Porsche.....................trust me I have discussed this at lenght. :blahblah:

Lindsay i got an email today reminding me i could use concierge, so i've also raised the issue with [email protected] Nobles. He's said he will raise the issues with Nissan in the next week and get back to me. I also mention the black paint issue.

I'm only at 2k at the mo, although planning a trip to London in the beast in 2 weeks.

If you pm with an email address I can send you the email I send Nobles, Nissan are taking the piss with maintenance and parts price. A Porsche beater!!!!! I am having my doubts, did not have to sign a disclaimer when you pick up a new Porsche, parts prices are much less with Porsche, maintenance with Porsche is at least thought out and logical, millage with a minimum service every 2 years. GTR great car, Nissan shit company......................as you can see I am getting irate!
PM coming up.

I was hoping being part of this forum would have meant we'd have some weight together to go to Nissan but clearly not:
eg
The engine recall - no help for the UK guys (i think a straight answer requested by GTROC from Nissan saying why UK aren't affected isn't too much to ask. NB it's not affecting me but i think that's part of the forum)
Black paint issue
and now this.

Sucks that 200 odd R35 owners on here can't all 'sign' a petition (i.e put our names to a thread) on here to say that we think the servicing interval policy is ridiculous.

FWIW i'm being told that engine oil and filter change is minimum at 6 months - which doesn't seem unreasonable to me as i'm at 3000miles (or will be after trip to London).

I'm posting this here not to force anyone's hand but to highlight that i think GTROC should be getting this agreed by Nissan for everyone, and not leave it up to each individual.

I'm waiting to hear the cost but i'm sure it'll be agreeable.

Once again thumbs up to Nobles Nissan. Top service.

My car is due for it's 12,000 mile service in 8 weeks having only covered 1,100 miles from new, and the 6,000 mile service being done at 980 miles.

I'm contemplating not getting the 12,000 mile service and forgetting about the warranty. Anyone else in the same boat?
I'd drop Darren King an email at Nobles (assuming your HPC is Nobles). He's been very helpful. I'm sure you can come to a sensible resolution and keep your warranty.

Are you supplying your own oil? - as the oil is more than that at HPC prices!

D
Nope.

Here's the breakdown.
oil £52.50+vat
filter £7+vat
sump washer£1.31+vat
labour30+vat

Will be done while i wait. Around 30mins.

As i keep banging on. Not all HPC's are equal. This was all done over email
eg
Me: Darren, can you ask Nissan about 6 month service as i'll be at 3k please?
Darren: Minimum engine oil and filter recommended
Me: Excellent. What price and can you do while waiting.
Darren: (See above for price), sure no problem, takes 30mins just let me know when
Me: Thanks very much - see you soon.

Honestly, for me it doesn't get any better. Nobles have to applauded for that.

Just noticed this thread.

I have already pointed out to Nissan the absurdity of this, but will ask again.

They still have also not changed the interval if over the temperature limit for the engine oil. So in theory you have a 3,000 mile trans change and 1,800 mile engine oil changes occurring at different times if you get the car hot.
Cheers Guy.

I suppose only the HPC can really answer this, but if my car has done less than 200 miles since the 6,000 mile service (done at 1,100 miles) and I don't comply with performing a 12,000 mile service, my warranty is out the window?

Wish I'd not held off nearly 2 years for a UK car now and just bought an import.....
Speak to your HPC. You may only need oil and filter change.

The official (and warranty retaining) service schedule is 6 months or 6k mileage, whichever arrives first.

labour rates can vary from app £90 to £120 per hour. According to Middlehurst (who are £100 per hour) they can collect from anywhere in the UK - they collected mine in Herts to go to St Helens.The service is free and you get a rental car whilst your beast is away (though it will be a boring Insignia or similar).

Also check the price of oil as I can source Mobil 1 for half the HPC price and most HPC's should let you supply your own oil if OEM supply.

That's the official word out the manual.

But not the final word on warranty retaining. (see my previous posts in this thread if anybody is interested. I don't want to just keep posting the same thing over and over :blahblah::blahblah::blahblah::blahblah:)

Best of
