The Enterprise may have been assigned to a five-month initial deployment at the end of Star Trek IV only to come back in worse shape than she left for Star Trek V (the warranty expired), requiring Scotty to oversee an overhaul.
That's not really what the movie was implying though.
The movie really seemed to imply that the ship went out for a bit, discovered some problems, and then came back home to fix them. How much time passed is a matter of debate, but it could be anywhere from days to months, IMO (although the stardates between Star Trek IV and Star Trek V do tend to suggest several months elapsed between them).
