OVER A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME (APROX. 2 YEARS), THE HEADLIGHT LOW-BEAM OUTPUT HAS DECREASED TO UNSAFE LEVELS. AT NIGHT, IT IS HARD TO TELL IF THE HEADLIGHT ARE EVEN ON, BECAUSE THEY DO NOT SEEM TO LIGHT UP THE ROAD AT ALL. I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO CHANGE THE BULBS, AND CLEANING THE LENS, BUT NEITHER HAS HELPED. I LOOKED FURTHER INTO THE ISSUE, AND IT APPEARS THE REFLECTOR MATERIAL INSIDE THE PROJECTOR HEADLIGHT HAS BURNT OFF FROM REGULAR USE IN THE 2 YEARS THAT I OWNED THE CAR (PURCHASED NEW), THERE IS ALMOST NO REFLECTIVE MATERIAL LEFT IN THE PROJECTOR HEADLIGHT. I CHECKED WITH NISSAN DEALERSHIP, AND THAT ISN'T SOMETHING THAT IS COVERED BY ANY OF THE WARRANTIES, THERE IS ALSO NO RECALL FOR THIS PART WHICH I FIND COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. EVERY SINGLE 2014+ Altima THAT I SEE ON THE STREET APPEARS TO HAVE THE SAME ISSUE, THE ROAD IN FRONT OF THE CAR ISN'T LIT, AND I AM SURE IT IS ALSO DUE TO THE BURNED OFF REFLECTORS IN THEIR HEADLIGHTS AS WELL.

I WAS DRIVING AT I-80 WESTBOUND FROM COUNCIL BLUFFS TO OMAHA. JUST AFTER ENTERING IN OMAHA MY Nissan Rogue SL SUDDENLY SLOWED DOWN ITS SPEED FROM 65MILES TO 40 MILES FOR NO OBVIOUS REASON. I HAD MY PRO PILOT ASSIST FUNCTION ON AT IT SEEMS THAT THE CAR DECIDED FOR NO REASON TO DECREASE THE SPEED AS THERE WAS NO VEHICLE IN THE FRONT OF THE CAR THAT I COULD HAVE SEEN IN MY LANE. I WAS WORRIED AND GOT PANICKED AS THERE WAS A SEMI TRUCK BEHIND ME. I IMMEDIATELY TURNED OFF THE PRO PILOT ASSIST FUNCTION AND ACCELERATED TO AVOID A REAR END COLLISION FROM THE SEMI. MY FAMILY A 1 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER AND WIFE WERE IN THE SUV WITH ME. I THINK WE COULD HAVE GOT KILLED BY THIS MALFUNCTION OF NISSAN ROGUE. PLEASE DO THE NEEDFUL TO HAVE NISSAN CHECK IT AND TO MAKE SURE IF THIS VEHICLE IS SAFE TO DRIVE.
