 Description of the problemHello, i drive a 2015 nissan altima s with 115,000 miles on it. The other night i was pulled over for not having my headlights on. The thing is, my headlights were on. My headlights are so incredibly dim (as a result of a factory defect in my vehicle) that the police officer behind me couldn't tell that they were on. I was given a warning and told that i need to address this problem. I have tried to address this issue in the past. I've been to the nissan dealership twice about this, both times i was told that this is a well known issue but there is nothing that can be done besides changing the entire headlight assembly. Even if i do, i was told, this problem will likely happen again. The plastic that immediately surrounds my headlight is cheap, and as it heats up, it produces a gas that fogs up the entire headlight. The left headlight is completely useless and the right one i have around 3 feet of visibility. This has been happening since my car had 25,000 miles on it and i am fed up with it. It is too dangerous for me to drive at night without my high beams on. I know this is happening to lots of other people too. Here are several articles i found after 30 seconds of searching on google: https://www. Nissanclub. Com/threads/headlights-too-dim-cant-see-solution. 508866/ http://www. Nissanproblems. Com/altima-projector-headlights/ https://www. Carcomplaints. Com/nissan/altima/2015/lights/headlights_are_too_dim. Shtml here is a class action investigation on this issue: https://chimicles. Com/nissan-altima-dim-headlights-class-action-investigation/ when i reached out to nissan, a regional manager contacted me. He told me there was nothing nissan was going to do since my car was out of warranty. They will not be covering any costs, and they will not be issuing recalls unless enough people complain to the nhtsa. Thank you for your help.
