2009 Nissan GT-R: It's back. Again.

I've nearly lost count how many times I've done a 'back from the dealer' post on the GT-R. Fifty-six...ish? And now I get to do it again!

Our 2009 Nissan GT-R is back from the dealer!

There we go, now to the point: The GT-R was out of commission from Monday morning until early Tuesday evening. In that time they replaced the same part that broke 11 months and 22,000 miles ago -- The vent control valve which, when broken, prevents excess pressure from properly venting, causing, among other things, a check engine light and fuel to puke out of the filler neck. Let me tell you, when that happens the cabin smells great. Fun times.

Two days out of service. No cost to us.

There was also a second, non-mechanical (surprise) issue we had repaired at the same time. But I'm saving that for a post later on tonight.
