1. GT-R owners in Florida have sued Nissan for manufacturing defective dashboards that melt under the hot sun.

    And if there's one thing Floridians know, it's hot sun. According to the GT-R lawsuit, the plaintiff says he took the vehicle to a dealership and was told it would cost about $2,000 to replace the dashboard.

    Heuer says he asked Nissan to cover the cost of the replacement, but was told Nissan would not spend its money for the dashboard.

    Beyond cosmetics, the lawsuit says the melting dashboard is a hazard because:

    1. The dashboards become shiny and reflective, causing vision problems while driving.
    2. There's a noxious chemical smell emanating from the melted plastic.

    For now, the lawsuit is limited to Florida residents.

  2. Heads up, Infiniti owners! If your steering feels loose, just wait until you come to a stop and the steering column separates entirely.

    According to Nissan, a manufacturing problem with the outer tube in the steering column is responsible for a recall of 17,000 vehicles.

    "In the words of the automaker, the outer tube might have been manufactured 'out-of-round.' The wrong specifications can cause stress at the upper bearing and cause the bearing retainer to fracture. Once broken, the steering wheel will move without turning the vehicle as intended."

    The recall includes the 2009 Nissan GT-R, 2008 Infiniti EX35, and the 2009 Infiniti FX35/FX45.
