Nissan Japan Initiates GT-R Steering Lock Replacement Service Campaign

March 3, 2010 Comments off

This is a controversial issue for GT-R owners in some regions. If you’ve been hanging around owners club forums and discussion boards you’ll have already seen the mysterious posts where owners get stuck with a car that wont start for seemingly unknown reasons.

Often the culprit is found, after much time and effort and probably swearing, to be the steering lock which seems to be in some way prone to a fault. The fault, when it arises, will prevent the car from starting and has so far been noted to affect Japanese and US model GT-Rs.

Nissan, in Japan at least, is cognizant of this issue and has begun sending out letters to GT-R owners informing them of a Service Campaign to replace potentially problematic steering locks for no charge for customers. We’ve received a copy of the letter and have included these photos of it.

We hope that following hot on the heels of this letter is a similar one for cars affected in other regions.
