Nissan Altima Dim Headlights – Class Action Lawsuit and Settlement

On July 26, 2021, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee issued an order granting preliminary approval to a class action settlement reached with Nissan in a lawsuit alleging that halogen headlamps in ’13-’18 Altimas become dim over time due to delamination of an inner reflective surface caused by heat and humidity.

The proposed settlement class is comprised of all individuals in the United States who are current or former owners or lessees of one of these vehicles. The proposed settlement provides for free replacement headlamps, reimbursement for past replacements, and an extended warranty.

The lawsuit is titled Suarez et, al. v. Nissan, Case No. 3:21-CV-393 and is pending in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee. The Court has scheduled a hearing for December 20, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. CT to determine whether to grant final approval to the settlement.
