2009 Nissan GT-R: 25,000 miles
July 20, 2009
Hooray! It was early August when we introduced you to our 2009 Nissan GT-R. 20,000 miles was never going to be a problem, not with this kind of allure, and not when we bought it in Tennessee and drove it back to L.A. 25,000 miles in just about 11 months is what we expected. What we weren't expecting were the repair costs: $7,098.07 so far. (Edit: We paid $71,900 for the car + maintenance brings the total to $78,998.07 -- Still $51,001.93 cheaper than its main rival, the Porsche 911 Turbo, that stickers for $130,000.)
Oh, and just in case the static image of an odometer at 25,000 miles doesn't get your blood pumping, follow the jump for what is potentially the most boring video ever taken of a GT-R.
