The contact owns a 2008 Nissan Altima. The contact was driving approximately between 10-15 mph on wet road conditions. When braking the anti-lock brake system failed to engage. The vehicle slid across the roadway and crashed into another vehicle. There were no personal injuries. The police was not called to the scene. The contact was able to drive the vehicle to the residence. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic for body damage repairs. In addition, the day before the failure the "vehicle dynamic control off" (vdc) and "slip" warning light indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The warning indicators remained illuminated until the engine was turned off. The failure mileage was 18,000.

I own a 2000 Nissan Altima gxe, and have been experiencing a failure in the speedometer, tach, odometer, and temp gauge while driving. The gauges will freeze up at any time and stay at their last position, while the car continues to operate as normal. The cruise control will also kick off if it is being used at the time. This leads to a vehicle that is only drivable by using the naked eye and judging your speed by other cars, and a failure in correct reporting of mileage. A solution is still under investigation, and a dealer has not been able to diagnosis it yet. I have seen many other reports of this same problem on several models of Nissans of this year (frontier, sentra, pathfinders) posted at various online car forums. Obviously this is a dangerous issue that has been overlooked by Nissan USA.

At least several times a week the instrument panel goes out while driving; the odometer, heat gauge, rpm, everything. Most of the time the speed registers below zero but sometimes it just freezes in place. At what point is Nissan willing to address the problem? maybe it is time to file a class action lawsuit.
I own a 2006 Nissan Altima. I have an aftermarket gps system that I use in the car. I have noticed that the speed gauged by the gps has a variance from what shows on the speedometer. For instance, if I am traveling 40 mph and have the cruise control set to that speed, the gps shows that I am actually traveling 36 mph. The difference between the two devices grows as my speed increases.
