Default Routine 18,000 Mile Nissan GT-R Service Price Tag: $2,000!

Routine 18,000 Mile Nissan GT-R Service Price Tag: $2,000!

By Ray Wert, 8:00 PM on Mon Mar 30 2009, 11,730 views


Edmunds Inside Line
recently took their long-term Nissan GT-R in for routine 18,000-mile maintenance. Total price tag? An astonishing $2,009.67! Talk about yer high cost of ownership, eh?
Why's it cost so much? Well, for the most part, everything's par for the course — an oil filter for $6.95, six quarts of Mobil 1 Synthetic oil for $9.38 per quart. All pretty standard. Then you get to the GT-R-specific automatic transmission fluid. The lists price? $114.98 per quart. Yup, you read that right. Want to know how many quarts it takes? How about 10 quarts! Luckily, Edmunds Inside Line only needed eight and they got their tranny juice at a discount — only $84.24 per quart. But that still helps them get to a horriful (yup, there's that new made-up word again) price of $2,009.67. Talk about a needy little beast, eh? Check out the rest of the tab at Edmunds Inside Line.

i thought I read it was $80/qt for the trans fluid, but $114 is even more insane.

We talked about this at work today... apparently that trans fluid is MORE expensive that the stuff they use in an SLR mclaren

and obviously way more expensive than they use in other 100k+ SLs and other MBs

i wonder what sets this fluid apart from other ATF, and if its even that much different than say Nissan Matic J fluid... also wouldnt mind knowing what the wholesale cost is on those quarts.
