Preventative scheduled maintenance is an important investment to optimize the performance, reliability, safety and resale value of your NISSAN GT-R. Scheduling your vehicle’s maintenance at the recommended intervals will ensure your vehicle is running at its best.
Depending on your driving habits and local conditions, you should follow one of the two maintenance schedules listed below for scheduled maintenance. In addition to Schedule 1 maintenance, additional maintenance must be performed for optimum performance. Use these guidelines to determine which maintenance schedule to use:
SCHEDULE 1 (Every 6,000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first). Schedule 1 features 6,000-mile service intervals. Use Schedule 1 if you primarily operate your vehicle under any of these conditions:
- Repeated short trips of less than 5 miles in normal temperatures or less than 10 miles in freezing temperatures
- Stop-and-go traffic in hot weather or lowspeed driving for long distances
- Driving in dusty conditions or on rough, muddy, or salt-spread roads
SCHEDULE 2 (Every 6,000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first). Schedule 2 features 6,000-mile service intervals; with Schedule 2 fewer maintenance items are regularly checked or replaced than with Schedule 1. Generally, Schedule 2 applies only to highway driving in temperate conditions. Use Schedule 2 only if you primarily operate your vehicle under conditions other than those listed in Schedule 1.
