As if Nissan didn't think that you were "priviledged" enough to have a GTR....
"6. Data Recorders
The Nissan GT-R is equipped with a Vehicle Status Data Recorder which is capable of recording the vehicle's operating conditions and monitoring component replacement or reprogramming and may be used to perform and administer warranty repairs. Other vehicle operational information may be logged in the Electronic Control Module and the Transmission Control Module which may also be accessed during investigations into component failure and in performing and administering warranty repairs. Additionally, the Nissan GT-R is equipped with an Event Data Recorder which records crash data in the event of a crash."
Wait a second... it has FOUR data recorders? Did I count that right? Are they interested in data recorded from customers cars THAT MUCH?!? What?... they didn't do this kind of research with their own cars? I don't even think F1 cars have that many recorders. Hmmmm...
Note this line: "...is capable of recording the vehicle's operating conditions and monitoring component replacement or reprogramming and may be used to perform and administer warranty repairs." Administer warranty repairs or administer the cancellation of such a warranty if one ever really existed?
"The maximum RPM for initial start with VDC ON has been increased..." -- Translation: "C'mon guys... keep that VDC ON!!" Haha... why even offer this "VCD" function then? Oh yeah.... you might get stuck in mud or snow!
"Maximum RPM at launch with VDC OFF (which should only be used when stuck in snow or mud) has been decreased, and acceleration with VDC OFF will be moderated." -- Well that's a relief... if we smoke the tires, not only will that become increasingly difficult as the RPM's will be closely limited BUT we will know about it at your next warranty burning party AKA: scheduled maintenence.
"The GT-R Owner's Manual expressly warns against driving with the VDC OFF..."
"Repairs for damage caused by driving with VDC OFF are expressly excluded under the terms of the Nissan GT-R New Car Limited Warranty."
"...you are reminded to drive with VDC ON at all times."
"...there is no reason to be driving with VDC OFF."
And this was all in ONE paragraph. Think they're trying to get a point across? It goes on and on. I'm surprised they don't just install some sort of "vehicle kill device" when the vehicle is used in any way that "they" don't approve of.
When I pay over $70,000 for a car... who's car is it again??
