2009 Nissan GT-R Premium 2dr Coupe AWD (3.8L 6cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

this car is everything that I wanted in a car. There are a few things that can be improve like fuel economy. I am getting about 15 miles per gallon and that is driving at normal speed, going fast maybe about 11 miles per gallon. When starting the car in the manual mode the car transmission sometimes stalls for a fraction of a second because the transmission is calculating the gears.


Best Features

The stereo system is great but tI bet the looks ion this car are the best features. I had people following me just to take a photo of this car. Last week a policeman stopped me just to ask me what kind of car I was driving. I never got that with a Porsche, Benz, BMW. Great looks!


Worst Features

More space in the back seats, If I move my seat to the front to let someone sit behind me I am on top of the wheel. Not to bad in the passenger side.

2009 Nissan GT-R Premium 2dr Coupe AWD (3.8L 6cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

Too heavy, too hyped and too limited. Nicely conceived, poorly executed. Drop 600-700 lbs, lower two inches, get rid of the fancy tranny and eliminate the "warranty voided if you use the launch control" and this car could be a world class sports car! The AWD needs some work to improve driver feedback. I sold my GT-R in favor of a Corvette Z06. Nissan developed some great ideas but missed the mark.


Best Features

Great performance for the money! Unique styling!


Worst Features

Drop 600-700 lbs, drop the fancy tranny in favor of a manual 6-7 speed. Lower the car 2 inches. Improve driver feedback feel through the AWD.

Review

Nothing compares to this vehicle. You cannot beat it for the dollars, almost nothing can beat it's performance, the fit and finish work very well at this price point, and it does not need to make a lot of noise to get the job done or attract attention. Looks certainly do attract attention, it is different, not for that purpose, but to again get the job done! It's the aero efficiency, the 2+2 ability, and real trunk space. The numbers are widely known, why would an informed, intelligent, and cost conscious consumer buy anything else?


Best Features

Everything it has!!!


Worst Features

Back up camera, radar/proximity braking, for those moments of sheer bliss, (I.E.) when distracted by that lovely passenger in the other seat (or kids in the back)!!

Review

I only have 117 miles on the car so far, but what I can say is that it is really an experience. I purchase the car for a daily driver in Wisconsin. The ride is not that harsh, the gear box is a MANUAL for all intense purposes and the shifts feel like a good manual transmission would feel. There is a little too much road noise for my personal taste.


Best Features

Engine, BACK SEATS! (good enough for two car seats for the kids!), and price!


Worst Features

Two different treatments on the premium level...a "track version" and a "street version." That way, you could keep both the daily drivers and the weekend track guys happy at the same time!

Review

The GT-R is without doubt an amazing feat of engineering. That said, I'm not sure I love it. I've had an S2000 for four years, and like a previous reviewer I really think it is more fun to drive. Whereas the S2000 is a fun little partner in petty 'crime', the GT-R is more akin to a nuclear weapon. I know it's unbelievably powerful and fast, but I also get very little chance to use it on the street in a way that seems 'fun.' But that's a knock against any supercar. So, while I greatly respect the GT-R, I don't really lust after it, in part because it does not look good.


Best Features

Engine. Tranny in paddle/manual shift mode. Brakes. Awesome multi-parameter electronic instrumentation


Worst Features

Automatic shifting mode should be smoother. Car is too heavy, and feels that way.
