Maybe it was the stress of being Car of the Week, but the 2009 Nissan GT-R went all diva on us, again, this morning requesting an immediate visit to the dealer. We checked the code and it was the same evap emissions control business we had back at 4,900 miles. And so, just like last time, we cleared the code assuming it was a loose gas cap, and went on with our business. (If you'll remember, last time the fault was caused not by a bad gas cap, but by a faulty Event Control Valve which was replaced.) Less than a day later, the light came back and we went straight to the dealer.

And that's what we know so far. The first day of the GT-R's second tour of 'Of The Week' duty will be spent at Nissan of Santa Monica. We'll give you updates as we have them.
