CHARLOTTE, NC – Some Nissan car owners say their headlights don’t work well and they think it’s a major safety issue.
The Kroks are a Nissan Altima family. They own three, and Rob Krok says two have headlight issues.
“I immediately noticed that at night I couldn’t see anything. Extremely dangerous,” he said.
He says the headlights are so dim that he drives with his high beams on at night just to get a normal amount of light. “It’s pitch dark and then, unfortunately, when you’re driving down streets without streetlights, forget about it,” Krok said.
Action 9 went home after dark to see the problem first hand. The lights seemed dim and didn’t shine very far.
A driver has filed a class action lawsuit against Nissan over the matter and Nissan has settled. The company does not admit any wrongdoing, but told Action 9’s Jason Stoogenke that it settled the matter to “ensure customer satisfaction and continued confidence in their Nissan vehicle.”
“I feel good. I just feel sorry for the people who don’t know about this class action lawsuit,” Krok said.
Here’s what you need to know:
– The settlement affects 2013-2018 Nissan Altimas.
– The company extended the warranty by three years, for a total of six.
– Nissan will repair your headlights for free. Just take your car to a Nissan dealership.
– If you have already had your headlights repaired and paid out of pocket, you can get a refund. File a complaint here before April 25.
– Nissan changed the design in 2018, so newer models shouldn’t have this problem.
