Nissan warns against unauthorized imports

Trade Arabia
Nissan has issued an alert to potential customers looking to acquire the parallel imports of its all-new and highly sought-after Nissan GT-R sports sedan.

Anyone considering bringing a GT-R into the country through unofficial channels will be ineligible for any Nissan warranty claim on such imports.

Before the official regional launch of the GT-R, parallel imports cannot get the full service necessary for its maintenance, even at Nissan dealers, said an official spokesman.

Nissan Middle East strongly recommends customers buy the super-car through any authorised channels only to ensure the complete validity of the warranty on their cars.

“The version especially produced for the region will be modified to deliver the best performance by matching local road and climate conditions. Nissan Middle East cannot guarantee that a parallel-imported GT-R will deliver the optimum performance as intended for this car as it may be wholly unsuited to the environment,” said general manager, marketing and corporate communications at Nissan Middle East Monal Zeidan.

Vehicles entering the region as unauthorised imports could also have specifications that have not been modified to suit local conditions, such as a preset speed limiter that cannot be released. They would also feature all-Japanese characters on dashboard and navigation displays, various switches and audio and multi-functional gauges.

“To maintain the high levels of performance, product precision and to ensure all safety systems are maintained to factory specification, the Nissan GT-R must be serviced in a dedicated facility with special equipment by specifically trained service technician,” added Zeidan.

The Nissan GT-R will be imported, sold and after-serviced through all official Nissan distributors in the GCC early 2009.

“Maintenance must be performed either in a Nissan High Performance Centre or in a specially certified workshop for the Nissan GT-R with station-certified technical staff who are specially trained to service the Nissan GT-R,” said Zeidan. – TradeArabia News Service
