Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2018 Nissan GT-R

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2018 Nissan GT-R?

What to Know About 2018 Nissan GT-R Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Nissan GT-R to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your GT-R. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your GT-R, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 Nissan GT-R!

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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your GT-R's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Nissan GT-R problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Nissan GT-R

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 Nissan GT-R and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your GT-R. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2018 Nissan GT-R be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your GT-R may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2018 Nissan GT-R running newer, longer. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 GT-R in the chart at the top of this page. 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Nissan GT-R.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Nissan GT-R can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Nissan GT-R steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. 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 might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan GT-R? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2018 Nissan GT-R maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • What should I do after hitting 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 switch my Nissan GT-R to high mileage oil? 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!
  •  Why are my Nissan dashboard lights on? 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.
