#143 of 229 More stolen headlights
Jul 18, 2004 (4:51 pm)
I too had my headlights stolen from my 2003 I35 in New Jersey.
I was told by Infiniti's Consumer Affairs department that it has become something that they are tracking statistics on as it has become a concern in the Northeast.
My local dealer and Infiniti USA told me there is no "fix" kit as Nissan offered to the Maxima owners. The local dealer has had customers whose lights have been stolen twice and even three times.
As they knew there was a problem on the earlier Maximas, you'd think they would engineer a fix for the Infiniti. I would not have leased this car had I known it was a prime target for theft.
The New Jersey Attorney General's Office sued Nissan over the 2002-2003 Maximas. Perhaps they will also do something about the Infinitis.

I am about to replace my '03 headlights w/ '01 headlights, but I've been told that doing this can mess up the computer system in your car. Is this really true? Also, will my car depreciate in value if I get this done? Have you had any problems since your installation of the '01 headlights?

Your computer will be fine, but the thieves will steal the lights thinking there are Xenon. The 01 lights look different, but in the middle of the night they cannot tell the difference.

How about asking the Nissan dealer about TSB#NTB02-117?? There's supposedly an HID theft deterrant kit (Part#65601-6Y300) that can be installed. Check out this link: http://maxima.theowensfamily.com/tsb/NTB02-117.pdf
Not sure if this had been mentioned or not before.

Did the TSB fix the problem or are people still losing their headlamps to thieves?

Anyone in NJ know whether the AG's suit against Nissan is still moving forward in the courts?

was told they are still going after them....now doing hood damage to get them out...result less costly repairs...but still a problem as theyya are in demand...best policy from a Nissan mechanic switch them with 2000/ lites.....also hear nobody is buying them at lease end.....stacking up on dealer lots....WHAT A LEMON.
#151 of 229 Lot of questions
Mar 30, 2005 (12:01 pm)
i got a few questions. I have a 2000 Maxima SE and i want to get angel eye headlights for it. My friend told me that angel eyes are only for BMW but i like the look and i wanted to know what other people thought. I also was wondering if there is a way to etch vin numbers into headlights, i read a little bit of forum and i just wanted to clarify that. thanks for help

Justice dept is ordering all nissan dealers to supply a list of HID lights sold since the cars inception, they are going full force at them.. and the cars are in no way a lemon, they are one the most reliable cars on the market, EVERY car has problems, and nissan is one company that when notified of a continuing problem stands up and takes action. as long as you have the bracket that bolts to the frame they are VERY difficult to steal, but if someone tries they will do serious damage!! How can a company be held responsible for a bunch of crooks actions....
