The parking lights and side mount lights do not turn on when I turn on the headlights on the car at night. You cannot see the car at night unless I step on the brake and then the brake lights light up. On the inside there is no light for any of the dashboard gauges. You have to know whether or not your car is in the proper gear. You have no idea how fast you are traveling or how many rpms you are reving. You cannot read the gas gauge to know if you need to fill up soon. It is extremely dangerous to drive at night time.

Consumer was under the impression, going by the epa sticker on vehicle, that it gets 20-28 gas mileage. Consumer got vehicle plugged to computer, and it showed correct gas mileage was 17-19 for 5 speed cylinder. Nissan must have an internal document to achieve the 17-19 gas mileage on vehicle. Nissan knows this, and still shows epa mileage incorrectly on stickers.
