Here’s Why 2009 Nissan GT-R Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Nissan GT-R, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your GT-R could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine GT-R maintenance. Just follow your 2009 Nissan GT-R maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your GT-R perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2009 Nissan GT-R problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Nissan GT-R Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Nissan GT-R for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your GT-R’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2009 Nissan GT-R. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Nissan GT-R battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty GT-R) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan GT-R won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2009 Nissan GT-R's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2009 GT-R. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2009 Nissan GT-R? We can help with that, too!
