Questions About 2018 Nissan GT-R’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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.
  • What can I tow in a Nissan? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem.

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.

About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Nissan, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
