Nissan Maxima, Lights
#54 of 229 CALL TO ACTION
Nov 11, 2003 (12:31 pm)
Attention all Maxima owners, especially those with 2002 and 2003 models whose headlights have been stolen. I am organizing everyone to hold Nissan responsible and get them to do something about the epidemic of headlight thefts.
My lights have been stolen 3 times in a matter of months!!! At this point, I can't park my car in the street. I've already solicited professional help and our chances look promising.
To join me and get something done, email me as soon as possible.

By the way, there are NHTSA regulations concerning a car manufacturer's obligations with respect to theft protection.

No one can email you because your email isn't public in your profile.
And if you're soliciting others for a suit or something, well, soliciting is against the rules here. See the Member Agreement linked on the left.

I'm concerned!!! I have a 2004 Maxima SE, are the headlights here prone to be stolen too? Or just there aren't enough of the '04 around to have a statistic yet. Will it be a problem in mid 2004.
#59 of 229 Aftermarket HIDs
Nov 12, 2003 (1:12 pm)
Have been shut down by the new regs. and enforcement. I know because on the RX-7 Forum many "enthusiasts" are mad they can't get them any more. They were being sold as an electronic ballast and H4 shaped HID bulb, to fit in a standard headlamp. A very bad idea, as the light emitting area is the wrong shape so the reflector design would be wrong. Good way to blind other drivers! They would also not have auto-leveling.
Still not sure where the stolen headlamp assys. would be going. Perhaps other countries where they are not available yet?

You can't blame Nissan for your HID thefts. Take some responsibility yourself. Donít park your car in an area where your headlights (or anything else) will get stolen. I canít believe the posts where folks are complaining that their HIDs have been stolen multiple times! It seems like this is a regional thingÖ in the northeast mainly. Car stereos are stolen more often throughout the entire country but I donít hear folks wanting Pioneer or Sony or others to be responsible for those thefts.
#61 of 229 Lbg, I gotta agree with Jbadams.

While I'm sorry for your loss/losses, just can't see how Nissan is responsible for ANYTHING being stolen off YOUR car. Once driven off the dealer's lot, unless it's covered by the waranty, it's YOUR problen. I, too, wonder where they go. Kinda like if a low life breaks your window and takes your radar detector. It sure isn't Cobra's, Valentine's, etc.'s fault the unit was stolen. Granted, it may not be your fault either, but that's why you have, or should have, insurance. Hmmmm, maybe it's an insurance conspiracy to raise the rates of Nissan owners.

I have not received any letter yet for the "new securing devices" and new "identification technology" you are talking about. Do you have to call up Nissan people to get it for yourself or are they sending it to every nissan buyer in North-East area?
