    • Nissan launches a monthly vehicle subscription service that includes the GT-R

      Have you ever thought of subscribing to Nissan to try out all their cars? It is doubtful there are many people clamoring for this. Nissan is offering to tiers at $699 per month and $899 per month that will let you sample the brand's cars (after you pay the $495 activation fee).


      For $699 choosing from the Altima, Rogue, Pathfinder and Frontier is not all that exciting. For $899 you get the Maxima, Murano, Armada, Titan, 370Z, Leaf Plus and GT-R.

      The GT-R will run you an extra $100 per day with a seven day maximum. That means if you use the full week the service now runs you $1600 a month.

      Central Houston Nissan is debuting the service. Our feeling? No thanks.

        When I saw $699 per month I was kinda intrigued but to get any good cars its $900 plus $100 per day for the GTR?
        That is crazy.

        I honestly don't know who would possibly want these subscription services. So many manufacturers seem to be CERTAIN that this is where the market is going but I just don't see it when the pricing is so ridiculous.

        I know one of the guys working on Porsche's subscription service and that I can understand a bit more because all of the cars are actually desirable and I would like the variety but still the pricing is prohibitive even for Porsche standards.

        I guess I could see some company that deals with people coming in and out (talent agency) having a fleet of cars they change but I don't see individual application making much sense.

        Plus Nissan would be way down the list anyway.

        I used to think people paying for music subscription services were crazy. Look at me now!

        A music subscription costs $10 for you get all the music you want.

        This costs more than just buying the car you want to drive if you are even excited by the prospect of driving a Leaf.
