This automaker promised to fix melting dashboards for drivers — but not in Georgia
The Center for Auto Safety is the nation’s premier independent, member driven, non-profit consumer advocacy organization dedicated to improving vehicle safety, quality, and fuel economy on behalf of all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.
“You’ve got a glare that is next to impossible to see through that puts other drivers in danger. It certainly puts pedestrians in danger,” said Jason Levine with Center for Auto Safety.
NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. – An automaker promised to fix melting dashboards for some drivers — but not in Georgia.
It’s a defect in certain model Nissans and it comes with a big safety risk.
“Oh, it’s melting,” Nick Petrus said.
All it takes is a quick look or a touch to know something is not right with the dashboard of Petrus’s 2008 Nissan Altima.
“It feels like goo,” Petrus said. “It’s gross. It’s disgusting. It’s like slime.”
But the “goo” is not the main problem. It’s what happens when Petrus drives.
“The real issue is the glare that that causes in the windshield,” he said.
