A good friend of mine just bought a '98 Frontier and it had a bad instrument cluster. The odo worked fine but the speedo would go nuts at higher speeds.
He sent it off to those Wizard guys and they fixed it right up. Not cheap, but not much of an alternative if you want instruments! From what they told him, there's an integrated circuit chip that goes bad and causes the problem.
I've seen quite a few in the Craigslist with bad clusters, and they all seem to have around 170-180K.
My '98 Frontier only has 67,000 miles on it and the cluster works fine, am hoping for many more miles before having issues!!
