I bought a 2013 Nissan Altima sedan back in November.
I traded my 2012.
I noticed that whenever the headlights are on that there is a smudgy place, which later found out it is a shadow from the lamp.
I did talk to my dealership and they said all the headlights were like that.
I called and reported it to consumer affairs nissan.
She wrote up a case number and all and asked me to send pictures. I did that and she sent them to the engineering department.
She called me back and told me that it's the lamp and that there's no solution to correcting this as of right now.
My question is did whoever make this car not look at it before sending it out on the market.
You buy a brand new car
cause it looks good.
To have this really makes the car look cheap.
I know my 2012 did not do this. But why would you even make a car that does this? why not leave it the way it was.
I have not noticed any other issues.
I do like the car the way it drives and all so far.
Has anyone else noticed their headlights doing this?
What is your opinion?
It really turns me away from the Altima's.
They have always had a good reputation.
