Hi I am looking to buy a used GT-R 2009-2012 models however i do not know much about gtr's.
I bought a used bmw (2011) and its starting to give me major issues.
Are gt-r's known to give problems ? Will i have a lot of head aches down the road? A lot of maintenance? I dont want to drop this kind of money and start having to have problems and change everything in a year.
Are the repairs expensive? Is there Nissan extended warranties i could purchase if so are they worth it?
What year do you guys suggest i should be looking at ?

Thank you for your tips !!

On average a GTR will cost $6000 a year in maintenance when driven 15,000 miles a year. This includes oil change, tires and brakes. GTR's aren't really known to break when they are stock. It is when you start pushing more hp with the stock motor and transmission when repair bills appear. Your best bet get a newer BMW that covers free maintenance and warranty.

I disagree. Oil changes are not that expensive. And the costly things such as tires and brakes depends on driving habits, more the brakes than anything else. Tires usually go between 10 and 20k miles (stock ones)....brakes depend on if you race/track the car. You won't need to do brakes nearly every 15k miles unless you are at the track often. I'd say less than 1000-2000 a year for street driving...going 15k miles a year. Few oil changes and tires...2k

Even if you had to do all three yearly (rotors/pads, 3-4 oil changes, and tires) you can get mpss for 1500/1600 or less, oil changes cost me 60-80 (oil from walmart, filter/washer from nissan, labor 20-40bucks), and brakes you can get rotors and pads for 2-3k....so still under 6k...but you won't need breaks unless driving craaazy or on track often...

If you can change your oil your cost is ~$45 total. If you go to dealer $140-200.
If you do not track the car, I would see 1-2K per yr budget.
When out of warranty add $1200 for POS.

Tires once a year and oil changes is all your gonna do.

Even if you take the car to 1 or 2 events a year your still only gonna spend money on tires and oil changes...
