Maintenance for Your 2011 Nissan GT-R

How often should I service my 2011 Nissan GT-R?

What to Know About 2011 Nissan GT-R Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Nissan GT-R to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your GT-R has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your GT-R, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2011 Nissan GT-R!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Nissan themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your GT-R's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Nissan GT-R problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Nissan GT-R Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2011 Nissan GT-R for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your GT-R's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2011 Nissan GT-R be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Nissan GT-R battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty GT-R) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Nissan GT-R could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2011 Nissan GT-R's engine run smoother. To learn how often Nissan recommends you have the oil changed in your 2011 GT-R, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2011 Nissan GT-R? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Nissan GT-R steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled!

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Nissan GT-R's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan GT-R maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally!

Take an active role in maintaining your 2011 Nissan GT-R. Get answers to common Nissan GT-R maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Nissan GT-R? You know your Nissan GT-R better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Nissan GT-R? If your Nissan GT-R has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Nissan? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Nissan GT-R to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
