There's ALWAYS a reason why a windshield cracks. It may not always be from a rock etc, could be from stress on the glass.

As a matter of fact my daughters Altima just cracked again for the second time in a year for no apparent reason. How do you determine "stress on the glass"

Mine just cracked sitting in my driveway for no apparent reason. It is only 3 mos old and of course the dealer will not repair. There is no impact site and the crack starts from under the hood!

Mine has also been cracked for a couple months. I refuse to change it. I walked out and suddenly I had a huge crack from the edge near the moudlings halfway down the window. When I parked my car, a couple hours before, the window was fine. I have just filed a complaint with the Office of Defects Investigations.

I've had a similar problem. The windshield on my 2010 Altima has a crack that started at the lower driver's side corner and goes horizontal past the center of the windshield. I assumed it was from a rock, but now I have my doubts.

Crack appear on my fiends 2010 Nissan Altima without any apparent reason. Crack is on front windshield and about 10intches on the lower passenger side. No sign of damage or anything hit to the windshield. Days were certainly hot in mid July in Bay area and car was parked out in the sun.

My 2013 Nissan just cracked today, it is 2 months old. No apparent reason. Starts on the passenger side underneath the rubber stripping. There aren't any chip marks or anything...
Does anyone know if we can report it to the Better Business Bureau and get some help from them.

Numerous problems with my 2009 Altima. I think we all bought an Altima because Nissan has a solid reputation. This will be the last Nissan I ever own.
Problems:

Cracked Windshield - clearly a design flaw putting extra stress on the corner of the windshield.

Body Control Module - brake light comes on for no reason. Also, passenger window goes down from passenger side but not up. No, it is not locked from my side. I'm not an idiot.

Brake booster - Brakes are hyper-sensitive when I push a little more than usual to stop. Car wants to slam on the brakes.

Poor gas door design - I look at every Altima on the road and see that man gas doors, including my own, don't swing open like they should and shift out of alignment.

Tire Pressure Monitors - So far, two of the four tire pressure monitors have gone bad.

I'm sure I am forgetting something but this is pretty poor quality.
