What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2021 Nissan GT-R?

Your Guide to 2021 Nissan GT-R Scheduled Maintenance

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. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine GT-R maintenance. Just follow your 2021 Nissan GT-R maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Nissan, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your GT-R perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2021 Nissan GT-R problems.

Overview of Essential Nissan GT-R Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2021 Nissan GT-R for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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 2021 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. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your GT-R stranded. Your Nissan GT-R won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2021 Nissan GT-R running newer, longer. See Nissan's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2021 GT-R in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2021 Nissan GT-R.

Maintaining your Nissan GT-R steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Nissan GT-R's steering system with 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Nissan GT-R’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Nissan GT-R? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2021 Nissan GT-R maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2021 Nissan GT-R. Get answers to common Nissan GT-R maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Nissan GT-R? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Nissan GT-R need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Nissan GT-R? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Nissan dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan GT-R in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
