Very common indeed. Here is another thread that was started almost a year ago: http://www.nagtroc.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=35448

My dealership will cover it under warranty without a problem. I am just debating whether I should wait until the new 2012 gauge cluster is available since they changed the color of the computer display from orange to blue.

CARLOS -- replacement of cluster takes about 4 hours. Have your dealer order new cluster and then set appointment. It might take longer in the valley. They have to have the odometer reset to your existing mileage so it might have to come to Houston to have that "burn-in" done. Find out the total time they expect; let me know, we can help you with a dealer in Houston.

ps: your temperature gauge back light will be going out soon, too.

Oh crap this is not what I wanted to hear. My fuel gauge backlight is flickering off then back on now @20k mi.
It appears to be the same early vin numbers as the steering lock problem. It's under warranty; I fear for those owners who aren't driving them enough to make the problems appear. Come 36 months and the warranty disappears and the problems lurk.

That's not what I'm wanting to hear. Mine just went out and had it replaced at 5k miles. Have they fixed the problem or do I have this to look forward to again in another 5k miles?

You know, I was wondering the exact same thing. I want to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they have fixed the problem, especially since it is almost always the gas gauge that goes out (meaning that it should be easier to figure out the cause).

Replacing so many of them is costing Nissan some money (parts and labor) so they also have an incentive the fix this problem permanently.

My temp and gas gauge are out and I thought it was the fuse! I guess not. In to the dealer. I have about 13K miles on it.

It flickers first, then it spreads like a disease. Mine reached to a point that the gear indicator started to flicker.

The dealer will replace it for you under warranty, but the milage will go back to zero. ( on mine it did )

So a tip to the guys buying a second hand GTR, ask for service history, see if the cluster been changed on the car that you are buying. A dealer could claim its a new car, so beware.
