2010 Nissan GT-R Reviews

Vehicle Overview
The GT-R is racetrack-bred and runs zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, according to Nissan, joining the likes of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Unlike that car, the GT-R has all-wheel drive.

New for 2010
The GT-R gains five horsepower for 2010. There's new programming for the clutch and electronic stability system that's designed to improve drivability and acceleration, as well as a retuned suspension and more-rigid brake lines. Also new are the standard seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags.

Unlikely to be mistaken for any other car, the audacious-looking GT-R is shaped to cheat the wind, route cooling air where it's needed and maintain aerodynamic downforce, front and rear.

  • Steel, aluminum and carbon fiber construction to save weight and help handling balance
  • Base model's wheels get new finish
  • New white paint color added for 2010

The GT-R has the driver-oriented cockpit you'd expect of a performance car, with a large tachometer front and center. The seats hug their occupants tightly — a necessity on the track — but the floor space is uncommonly unrestrictive. Technically a four-seater, the GT-R could handle two adults in front and two kids in back. Nissan says the trunk can accommodate two golf bags or suitcases.
  • Eight-way power-adjustable driver seat
  • Four-way power-adjustable front passenger seat
  • Multifunction display records data such as mileage, cornering force and acceleration
  • Steering-column paddles for manual shifting

Under the Hood
For 2010, the twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 produces 485 horsepower, up from 480 hp, and the transmission control module has been reprogrammed to provide better drivability and acceleration.
  • New, more-rigid brake lines
  • Revised suspension for 2010
  • Rear-biased all-wheel drive
  • Standard 20-inch wheels
  • Summer performance tires standard, all-season tires a no-cost option

Standard safety equipment includes:
  • Front-seat side-impact airbags
  • Side curtain airbags for front and rear passengers
  • Antilock disc brakes
  • Electronic stability system

Warranties Explained


Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.


Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
