Nissan refuses to replace GT-R owner's busted transmission

A member of the North American GT-R Owner's Club forums started a thread recently in which he tells about dropping off his Nissan GT-R at the dealership when he began hearing loud noises coming from the rear of the car. The dealership told him that his transmission was toast as a direct result of him turning off the car's VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) too much, which you have to do in order to use the Launch Control function. The cost to repair the tranny is $20,000 and Nissan won't cover it under warranty since the GT-R owner's manual states that damage to the transmission is not covered if it is proven to be the result of using Launch Control with the VDC turned off. In fact, the manual states that the only reason you should turn off VDC is for when you're rocking the vehicle because it's stuck in mud or snow. That's kind of like Nissan saying you should never use the Launch Control function despite the fact it's there.

in all seriousness I knew this car was a piece of crap....to push a 0-60 time of mid 3s with only 400+ hp and alot of weight you have to be using pure and alot of technology....so what happens when you turn off the technology to get pure power .....the piece of crap breaks and nissan doesnt cover it.

thank god I love american cars

This sums up my believe. You can only push technology so far before it comes crashing down on you. This is why I prefer American cars as well. Generally if you do your research, American cars technology is generally more proven and a safer bet. Too much electronics can lead to disastrous results.
