2014 Nissan Altima Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 202013

Altima 4-cyl

  • 3,128 miles


The sunlight reflects off of the beige and glossy black interior finishes and causes a mirror image of the interior surfaces/glare onto the front and rear windshields. The glare on the glass is very bright and makes it difficult to see traffic lights and traffic signs as well as any other object in the glare zone. The glare zone ranges between 20 to 50% of the windshield area. This design fault was corrected in other Nissan cars but not in the Altima. I contacted Nissan and was advised "no correction can be made at this time".
