Then I get a call from the dealer to tell me the news, and they told me that the car was driven without vdc too much and nissan will not warranty the transmission which they said was destroyed, I asked them how much to fix it they told me 20k, no freaking way I will pay 20k on top of what i just paid for the car. I called the gtr number and also talked to nissan consumer affairs got nowhere, now the car is sitting at the dealer. I know we shouldn't launch the car but why own it if you cant use this function, don't sell a car that goes 0-60 in 3.4 sec if the only way you can achieve this speed is to void the warranty , false advertising. Here is the bad news people were fearing it has happened to me and Nissan has told me there are already three people in my shoes, if you are one of these people email me, we have got to get together on this. Just think if any of you guys have taken the vdc off just a few times you have already voided your warranty, good luck what a joke nissan. "
i know its the guys fault..but 20k!? lmfao, gtfo

heres the link if anyone wants to read more on it

Wow. I really feel sorry for the guy.

To be honest it doesn't surprise me though. Ford AU have similar detail on their performance range. It's ludicrous, they design and sell a performance car, but will void your warranty if you take it over 200km/h. Yet they don't install a speed limiter on the car!

The ECU logs it, the speed must actuate a solenoid or something. The ECU is also clever enough to notice that the rear (driving) wheels are moving while the front are stationary, therefore it can probably tell that it's on a dyno. And that can't be good for warranty arguments either.
