Insuring my Nissan GT-R at 25 years old? And paying taxes on it!

Help us reach 200,000 SUBSCRIBERS! www.youtube.com/channel/UCVx5ZqHmGq1PZE_4GUxIe8w

Today I go over all of the costs I have encountered since purchasing my 2014 Nissan GT-R!! From insuring it, paying to renew my registration and paying the taxes, and the routine maintenance I've had to do

For those of you interested in buying one of these cars, hopefully this helps give you an idea of the cost of ownership over 1 year.

How I can afford my Nissan GT-R:
automobilrevue.net/v/dEpUQjZWejJ0bHc

In all honesty owning and daily driving my 2014 Nissan GT-R has't costed an arm and a leg like many people said. Insurance for me is around $1,700 per year. That is full coverage, highest detectable, semiannual payments and perfect driving record. Property taxes with state inspection and registration is close to $600... allegedly.. lol. Maintenance has been $200 for two oil changes, $320 alignment, $130 battery and that's about it!

***
Update. My sticker and registration arrived today. Everything is up to date and paid in full. Still have no clue where that other $300 went. Definitely not complaining tho lol. But we'll see if I get another bill

I do nearly all maintenance myself because working on this car is actually no different then my previous Nissan 370Z. It's a normal car underneath and is no big deal maintaining myself. Yes this was a $100,000 car brand new, and I paid $70,000 for it used. But there is still no point to spend thousands more having Nissan maintain the car for me when I can do the same simple jobs and save money. I didn't get to owning a Nissan GT-R at 24 years old by wasting money.

Taxes and insurance is also not too bad. Before buying the car I did quotes so there wouldn't be any surprises if I ended up buying one.

So 1 year later owning a Nissan GT-R I am happy to report that it costs about the same to run as your typical car. Tires will be a bit up there at $1,500, but most Michelin Pilot Super Sports for any car would be that price.

Brakes will be a pricy replacement if I own the car long enough to have to replace them. Nissan quotes around $7,000 for OEM Brembo replacements. There are very good aftermarket pads and rotors for this car that actually outperform stock for roughly half the price. Once again, why would I wast $4,000 if I didn't have to?

So that wraps up going over the 'wasted' costs of daily driving my GT-R! I have put about 6,000 miles on the car since I bought it and am running strong at 31,200 miles on the ODO. Pricing on mods don't count since that isn't a necessity for owning a car. Thats just an addiction us car enthusiasts have!

Enjoy and give a big thumbs up!!!

      Sorry to hear some people knocking you doing your own maintenance. I don't trust anyone else to be as thoughtful, careful or observant as I am. Money paid for a service will never motivate people to do good work like passion for our interests does.

      I pay way more in insurance for my genesis coupe, but that is only because of where I live. Which I think it is bs that if you live 2 blocks over you can possibly pay more for insurance than people on the other side.

      I’m assuming you don’t know too much about saving and budgeting money? As well as auto financing? Set your aspirations a bit higher in life and you’ll realize that it’s pretty easy to afford a somewhat expensive car. Sale price was $67,545. I paid $70 OTD. Mommy and Daddy are never the ways to get a nice car. Nothing in life gets handed out. My parents certainly taught me that from a young age since they only supplied me with food, clothing and shelter as a kid. Super grateful they didn’t spoil me. It’s unfortunate you think that’s the only way to get a $44k auto loan at 24 years old. But that thinking will never get you to your goals. I encourage you to watch the vid I just linked. Hopefully you learn something 😉.

      You are so lucky with your car ownership prices compared to the UK. You may not be able to get 98 Octane Fuel at most garages like us but your fuel is at least 1/4 of the price we pay. :-(. 48 year old, clean license full no claims £1900 a year to insure a 20014 Porsche GT3RS, it's first year road tax was £2000. Other parts of Europe are even more expensive.

      That car does cost a lot to maintenance. My cousin owns a 2012 R35. The amount of money he spend doing maintenance on the GTR, if he spends that money on his 370z nismo, his nismo will be faster than his GTR already. Then again he doesn’t regret having a GTR either because everywhere he goes he breaks necks and never see another person driving the same car him.

      The R35 is more like a supercar rather than a tuner. The automatic with paddle shifters fits it perfectly

      Personal property taxes on vehicles are only applicable in certain states. The states without personal property tax on vehicles have a higher income tax rate. Thus (ergo) the state governments get into your pockets in various ways.
