Today we saw the most egregious act of a tow truck driver essentially stealing and joy riding in a disabled man’s GT-R. Now it looks like the tow company is going to be on the hook...for some repairs to that Nissan.


The owner had his GT-R towed to the dealer due to a transmission error warning that came on. It’s no secret that GT-R gearboxes are something special and that this could end up costing the tow company a small fortune to replace or fix.

If your GT-R transmission is having issues....YOU
