Dim Headlights

2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


I have bought this car back in September, I discovered that the headlights are quite dim. no where bright as my old 2009 Subaru. I returned to the dealer 2x in 2wks each time I was told there was nothing wrong. Complained to nissan headquarters they politely listened to my problem. I have offered to pay for a portion of the enhanced bulbs, but was told by the service manager that this model can not be upgraded. I considered purchasing brighter bulbs from Napa. Was told by Service manager that this would void the warranty, I am now awaiting a call from the GM, had I knowen how dim these lights were I would have never purchased this car, furthmore turn on the high beams is not much of an impro

I've had my 2012 Altima for about 6 months now and the headlights ARE NOT dim. I dont know how bright you want yours but honestly unless you would like to blind someone the headlights are great!
