Cost £55k - comical. Are you running any modifications on the car mate? I hope the warranty responds okay :thumbsup:

Hey, you have my absolute sympathies if that's the case, hope you get it sorted out soon. It's enough to put off a few prospective (myself included) buyers after all the problems documented with engines and transmissions. Good luck...

Don't understand why Nissan throw these figures out there, £55K - isn't that more than the whole GTR when it was released?

Good to hear it's being covered

Are you this Isn't an April fools?!

Smells a little dodgy to me....first time poster on April 1st...

In all seriousness though if it's not a piss take how te he'll can Nissan justify 55k for an engine. You can get a JUN r1 fir 15k fully installed FFS!

Even if it's not an April fool, which sounds very likely, then with any mass produced product there is always going to be a few which suffer unexplained failures, this is just one you get to hear about.

hmmm pretty scary if this is real... that's downright daft reliability? Unless the OP have a dodgy mod I don't see why this should/could happen. Well, someone on the Supra forum did tell me he heard plenty of these stories...

Lucky it is still under warranty... hopefully Nissan lets you drive something interesting in the mean time :)

Can you get info as to where the oil leak is exactly. Just for the peace of mind of the rest of us.

Something that we can check on, just in case it was a failure due to a bad batch of oil seals or something.

Did you say MY11, if so, when was it registered?

The cost of a new engine supplied to HPC is £26k and £3k to fit it...apparently cost is because it is not part of just in time production cycle
