Recall Alert: Several 2008-2009 Nissan and Infiniti Vehicles

2008-infin-ex

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 17,000 model-year 2008 Infiniti EX35 vehicles equipped with the optional power tilt/telescope steering wheel, which was included in the Premium Package, manufactured June 29, 2007, to April 25, 2008; model-year 2009 Infiniti FX35 and FX45 vehicles manufactured Oct. 31, 2007, to April 16, 2008 and model-year 2009 Nissan GT-R vehicles manufactured March 14, 2007, to April 25, 2008.

The Problem: The steering column outer tube in these vehicles may not be round, putting extra stress on the upper steering bearing. This could cause the bearing retainer to fracture; loss of steering ability could result.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the steering shaft on the EX35, FX35 and FX45 vehicles for free; dealers will replace the steering column assembly on GT-R vehicles for free.

What Owners Should Do: The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners can call Infiniti at 800-662-6200 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information; Nissan owners can contact the GT-R hotline at 866-668-1487.

2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO Photo Gallery

10946184925_fd8ef170d0

Nissan just announced revisions to its supercar for 2015, but that news is dull compared to the newest addition to the GT-R lineup. Nissan says "records fall and dreams come true" with the 2015 GT-R NISMO, which was revealed ahead of its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show. We'll also get a closer look at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show

The two-plus-two coupe uses a tweaked version of the regular car's twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6; it makes 600 horsepower in the NISMO version, up 55 hp from the regular model. Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn claims it's the fastest Nissan GT-R ever. The NISMO version also gets an upgraded suspension with stiffer springs and dampers.

2015 Nissan GT-R: First Look

10946153685_4f0b6d527d

Competes with: Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche 911, BMW M6

Looks like: The GT-R gets updated head and taillights 

Drivetrain: The twin-turbo 545-horsepower 3.8-liter V-6 carries over

Hits dealerships: Early December in Japan; other markets to follow

Not all the news is coming from Los Angeles this week; Nissan revealed the 2015 version of its sports car ahead of its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show. The refreshed GT-R gets a revised rear end, redesigned head and taillights, and new interior trim.

Outside, it'll be tough to tell the old one from the new model. The biggest change is to the headlights and taillights, which use more LEDs for a more dynamic look. The front headlights also feature a new adaptive lighting system; Nissan says it automatically adapts the angle of the light beam to the speed of the car and can project the beam farther.

Nissan to Develop 2014 GT-R NISMO

_RAB6295
Nissan is expanding its performance arm: The automaker announced today that it plans to offer a NISMO version of the 2014 GT-R supercar. This is the third vehicle to launch under the NISMO brand; it follows the revised 370Z and new Juke NISMO versions that were unveiled at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.

Currently, the NISMO version of the 2013 370Z is expensive, adding $5,200 to the price of the Touring version of the coupe, but according to Nissan, that will change during the next year. The automaker plans to make the NISMO brand more affordable and accessible.

Nissan's GT-R Gets Even More Expensive for 2014

2014-nissan-gt-r
Nissan's halo car got more horsepower and a huge price bump for 2013. For 2014, only the price continues to increase. The 2014 Nissan GT-R just went on sale with a base price of $100,590, including a $1,000 destination charge; topline Black Edition versions start at $110,300. Last year's GT-R started at $97,820, including a $1,000 destination charge.

The coupe's 545-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 returns for 2014. New this year are a host of suspension upgrades that Nissan says improve high-speed handling and ride comfort. Also new is a Premium Interior Package ($4,000) that adds hand-stitched red leather for the front seats as well as red trim on the instrument panel, steering wheel, doors, armrests and shifter.

In other Nissan news, the automaker also announced pricing for its all-wheel-drive CrossCabriolet, the unpopular convertible version of the Murano crossover. The automaker lowered its sticker by $2,545 for 2014 for a new base price of $42,840, including an $845 destination charge, which is only slightly higher than the topline all-wheel-drive Murano LE's $42,085 price, including an $845 destination charge. The 2014 Murano CrossCabriolet is on sale now.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Photo Gallery Two

2014ChevroletCorvetteStingrayNAIAS

If the stingray's stinger could deliver the viper's venom, could it become the most formidable fish in the sea? Chevrolet hopes to take that analogy to the high-performance sports car segment with the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray, whose design cues from fellow American icon the SRT Viper are apparent.

More Detroit Auto Show Coverage

The 2014 Corvette Stingray, bowing this week at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, boasts Viper-like exposed headlights and a gaping lower grille. But with features like defined rocker creases and shoulder lines, this Stingray-badged Corvette tempers the hulking appearance of the Viper. Still, the Stingray retains enough classic Corvette flavor to satisfy the faithful while tempting higher-end enthusiasts.
