2012 Nissan GT-R Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Nissan's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Nissan GT-R? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your GT-R towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your GT-R is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my GT-R's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 GT-R’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Nissan. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
