2016 Nissan GT-R Maintenance Schedule

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2016 Nissan GT-R?

Here’s Why 2016 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. With proactive 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? There's no need to guess when it's time to get GT-R maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2016 Nissan GT-R maintenance schedule!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your GT-R perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2016 Nissan GT-R problems.

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

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 Nissan GT-R and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Could your 2016 Nissan GT-R be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Nissan GT-R battery. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your GT-R stranded. 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 2016 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 2016 GT-R. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2016 Nissan GT-R.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan GT-R can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Nissan GT-R steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Nissan GT-R's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Nissan GT-R maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Nissan GT-R cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Nissan GT-R radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.

  • When should I have Nissan GT-R alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2016 GT-R is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Nissan GT-R? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Nissan GT-R engines.
  •  Why are my Nissan dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Nissan GT-R, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
