NISSAN VERSA Electronic Stability Control problems : 1.

We Were Practically Stopped, When We Were Rear Ended By Another Vehicle. We Were Pushed Into The Vehicle In Front Of Us. My Hood Was Smashed & Radiator Was Moved Along With Multiple Others Damage To The Front Of My Vehicle. My Bumper Was Pushed In. After The Accident I Went To My Nearest nissan Dealership To Ask About The Airbags Not Deploying. I Was Told That U Had To Be Going A Certain Amount Of Speed For The Airbags To Deploy. I Explained To Them That The Car Behind Us Was Speeding And Pushed Us Into The Vehicle In Front Of Us. My Concern Is If I Wouldn’t Have Had My Seat Belt On I Would’ve Been Thrown Through The Windshield. Because With The Impact Hitting From Behind I Was Lifted Up From My Seat. I Still Say There Was A Default With My Airbags. Please Help Me With Solving This Issue. Thank You.. *tr

Difficulty Reading Speedometer) I Have A 2009 nissan versa Hatchback. This Safety Complaint Is Based On The Fact That The Quadrant ( Zero To 40 Miles) Cannot Be Read During Most Daylight Hours. The Backlight Provides A Contrast Sufficient To Read The Speedometer Only During Evening And Low Light Periods. It Appears This Is A Design Problem Because The Speedometer Face Is Set So Far Back That Is It Deprived Of Natural Light And/or The Back Light Is Not Strong Enough To Create A Contrast. The Quadrant (70 To 100 Mph) Receives Sufficient Light To Be Read, But I Never Drive Over 60 Mph. This Is Indeed A Safety Hazard Because In Strict Speed Zones, Especially Schools That Use Camera Enforcement, I Am Forced To Drive With One Hand On The Wheel And The Right Hand Holding A Flash Light. I Made A Complaint To nissan And They Advised They Cannot Do Anything To Correct The Situation. I Stress This Design Flaw On The Part Of nissan Is A Hazard To Safe Driving. *tr

Within Weeks Of My Purchase Of A 2009 nissan versa Sl, I Noticed, When Making Right Or Left Turns At Slow Speeds (5-10 Mph), Especially Going Over A Bump And When The Steering Wheel Is Turned 1- 1 1/2 Times (as In Going Into A Driveway) I Experience Loud Clunking And Vibrations In Wheel, And It Can Be Easily Heard Coming From The Steering Column. The Clunk Is Always There At 1 To 1 1/4 Turn From The Full Clockwise Stop. I Have Taken It In The Dealership For This Problem At Least 5 Times; They Have Been Unable To Fix The Problem. Several Times, The Service Writer Said He Couldn’t Hear Or Feel The ‘clunk’ But The Mechanic Said He Could. The versa Does Move Around Quite A Bit At High Speeds On The Freeway, But I Am Unsure If That Is Caused By The Above Described Problem Or The Light Weight Of The versa. The Sound And Feel Of This ‘clunk’ Is Very Disconcerting, And Given The Number Of Complaints I’ve Seen For 3 Years About This Problem, I’m Wondering If The Government/automaker Are Waiting For Someone To Die Before They Act.

Within Days Of Buying The New Car In 2009, I Noticed A Loud, Clunking Squeak And A Pop From Around My Front Wheels When I Would Make A Turn After Slowing Down To A Stop. This Had Been Happening During The Entire 3.5 Years That I Have Had The Car, So I Figured It Was Normal And Harmless Because The Car Was Already Doing It Brand New (right Now There Are Still Only 37,343 Miles On The Vehicle, I Park It In My Garage, And It Has Had No Accidents.) However, Last Night, The Sound Seemed To Be Louder And Looser Near The Front-right Wheel. Then This Morning I Drove Out Of My Neighborhood And As I Began Accelerating To 50 Mph, A Large Piece Of Metal Flew Out Violently From Under My Car. I Was Able To Find It In The Roadway, So I Backed Up And Inspected The Part. It Is The Bottom Coil Of The Coil Spring That Is Over The Right-front Wheel. Luckily It Did Not Hit Anybody Behind Me Or Cut My Tire. The Metal Was Not Only Broken, But The Face Of The Break Was Already Slightly Rusted, As If It Had Been Cracked For A While Before Snapping. *tr

I Had Hopped Into My Car Today, Started It, Put It In Reverse And Had Moved About Two Feet Before I Heard An Extremely Loud *clunk* That Came From The Front Passenger Side. I Immediately Stopped My Car, Put The E-brake On, Turned It Off And Got Out To See What Had Happened. At First I Didn’t See Any Damage, Then I Looked Under My Car And Saw A Cylindrical Curved Piece Of Metal. I Picked It Up And Not Knowing What It Was Or Where It Came From I Didn’t Want To Move My Car Again Until I Had Some Answers. My Friend And I Walked To The Nearest Garage And Showed The Piece To A Mechanic And He Quickly Diagnosed The Issue: My Passenger Side Suspension Coil Had Snapped Off At The Base (about 6 Or 6.5 Inches Had Broken From The Bottom Of The Coil.) The Break Is Very, Very Clean–almost Like Glass. There Was No Sign Of Rust Or Any Other Sort Of Damage To The Coil, And After Reading The Many Complaints On This Website That Are Identical To Mine I Am Thinking That This Incident Today Was Only Caused By A Factory Malfunction! I Do Not Drive Over Bumps Or Holes Like A Maniac, I Drive Over Them Sensibly Just As I’d Think Many Other People With This Same Problem Do Also. I Am A Very Poor Single Mother & College Student And Something Needs To Be Done About This! Scary To Think About What Would Have Happened Had I Been Driving Down The Highway. *tr

I Backed Up My Car In The Morning From Parking Lot, Heard An Unusual Noise. Stopped The Car And Could Not Find Anything Wrong. As I Started Driving The Car, Even Though The Car Was Moving As Usual A Strange Noise Was Coming From The Front Passenger Side. Just Before Pulling To The Nearest Mechanic, Smoke Started Coming From The Car And Soon The Front Passenger Tire Burst With A Loud Noise. Immediately Pulled The Car To The Shoulder And Found A Broken Coil Spring Fell On The Road . The Same Issue Happened To Me Couple Of Months Back Where The Driver Side (front) Coil Spring Broke And Popped Out When The Car Was Backed Up In The Parking Lot (tire Did Not Burst As I Was Already In A Mechanic Shop For An Oil Change). I Think The nissan versa 2009 Hb Model Coil Spring Has An Issue Specially When The Vehicle Is Backed Up( May Be With The Steering In A Certain Position). This Is A Life Threatening Issue If Such Things Happen In A Highway As The Coil Spring Break Followed By A Tire Burst Can Risk The Lives Of Passengers. *tr

At First I Was Hearing “bump” Noises That Sounded Like A Sway Bar Issue For A Couple Days. Then I Heard A Noise That Sounded Like I Ran Over A Branch, Except There Was Nothing In The Road Before – Or After. I Drove About 100 Miles Home On The Highway, Still Thinking It Was Related To The Sway Bar. After About 10 Miles On The Backroads, It Sounded Like I Shed A Metal Part. Upon Retrieving The Part From The Road, It Was About A Semicircular Piece Of The Front Driver Side Coil Spring That Broke Free. All Unidentified Noises Are Now Gone, And Dealer Found Nothing Wrong With Sway Bar (after $88 Diagnostic Fee). Dealer Quotes $565 For Repair, Except They Can’t Do The Repair Even If I Wanted Them To. According To The Dealer, It Is A nissan Exclusive Part, Except nissan Is Not Currently Making The Part And It Is On “national nissan Back Order”.

At First I Was Hearing “bump” Noises That Sounded Like A Sway Bar Issue For A Couple Days. Then I Heard A Noise That Sounded Like I Ran Over A Branch, Except There Was Nothing In The Road Before – Or After. I Drove About 100 Miles Home On The Highway, Still Thinking It Was Related To The Sway Bar. After About 10 Miles On The Backroads, It Sounded Like I Shed A Metal Part. Upon Retrieving The Part From The Road, It Was About A Semicircular Piece Of The Front Driver Side Coil Spring That Broke Free. All Unidentified Noises Are Now Gone, And Dealer Found Nothing Wrong With Sway Bar (after $88 Diagnostic Fee). Dealer Quotes $565 For Repair, Except They Can’t Do The Repair Even If I Wanted Them To. According To The Dealer, It Is A nissan Exclusive Part, Except nissan Is Not Currently Making The Part And It Is On “national nissan Back Order”. The Dealer Advises That “i Am Currently Paying Monthly For A Car I Cannot Drive, And Cannot Repair Without Using Junkyard Parts That In All Likely-hood Will Also Fail At Some Point. *tr

The Driver Side Front Spring Completely Broke. I Went To The Vehicle One Morning And Noticed The Front Of The Car Sitting Very Low To The Ground On The Driver Side. Almost Not Space Between Wheel And Fender. I Looked Up Under The Wheel Well And Saw That The Spring Was Completely Broken. Luckily I Was Not Driving This Vehicle When This Happened. I Have Seen Numerous Complaints About This Same Incident And Strongly Believe There Should Be A Recall On This Part. nissan Better Step Up. I Am Very Disappointed With nissan And Would Never Purchase Another One Ever Again. The Vehicle Still Has Not Been Fixed. I Ordered The Two Front Springs And Would Try To Replace Them This Weekend.

I Have A History Of Complains With nissan About The Steering. My Complaint Was About A Pinging Noise Coming From The Front End. You Could Also Feel This Ping In The Steering Wheel. nissan Ignored This Complaint And Explained It Was My Abs Calibrating. As Time Went By The Noise Got Worst. nissan Would Even Charge Me $150.00 Each Time They Look At The Car For This Noise And Could Not Find Anything Wrong. Last Week nissan Told Me There Is A Problem With The Spring Moving When The Steering Wheel Turns. The Spring Tightens And Loosens With Each Turn Of The Wheel. They Have Identified The Problem And Have A Fix For It, But They Want Me To Pay For It. To Me This Sounds Like A Defect In Design And I Should Not Be Liable For The Charges, However They Wont Repair It Unless I Pay For It. *tr

Passenger Side Spring Coil Broke Nearly 5 Months After The Driver Side Spring Coil Broke. See Complaint From 7/31/13. Luckily, Coil Broke While Backing Out Of Drive Way, So I Did Not Lose Control Of Vehicle. Broken Part Of Coil Is Now Pinched Between Coil Seat And Rest Of Coil Leaving The Remaining Spring Unseated. Car Is Undriveable In This Condition For Second Time Before 5 Year Loan Is Even Paid Off. Case Opened With nissan, But They Thus Far Have Refused To Pay Diagnostic Fee To Confirm Broken Spring Coil. Broken Coil Can Be Clearly Seen In Tire Well. Diagnosis Is Required For Any Further Action By nissan Regarding Repair Reimbursement. Bad Customer Service. *tr

I Was Driving At 45 Mph And A Loud “thump” Under My Car Sounded Like Something Hit The Undercarriage. I Looked Back And Could Not See Anything On The Road. The Next Day, Heard A “clang” Under The As I Decelerated From 20 Mph. I Stopped And Found A Piece Of My Right Front Coil Spring In The Roadway. The Entire Bottom Coil Of The Spring Had Snapped Right Through The Metal And Fallen Off The Car. This Is The Second Coil Spring On My Car That Has Done This. The Left Spring Snapped The Same Way, About A Year Ago. The Manufacturer Must Have Used Bad Metal For The Springs, And They Could Keep Snapping While I Am Driving. It Was Dangerous When The First Spring Snapped, But If Both Springs Snap On The Same Car, There Is A Serious Defect. *tr

The First Instance Happened On The Driver’s Side Of My Car As I Was Backing Out Of The Parking Spot At My House, I Heard The Loud Ping Of Metal Snapping. I Backed Up A Little Farther And Stopped To Find A Piece Of What I Would Later Learn Was Part Of The Coil Spring On The Front Driver’s Side. I Took My Car The Dealership Where They Told Me It Could Have Easily Sliced Open My Tire Or Brake Line Had I Been Going Fast. After A Lot Of Back And Forth Between Us They Repaired It Without Charging Me. Fast Forward To January 12, 2014, 64,500 Miles. I Don’t Know Exactly When The Break Occurred This Time, But As I Was Driving Home, I Would Here A Clanging Sound Whenever I Turned Or Hit Even The Slightest Bump In The Road. I Checked The Car The Next Day And Noticed The Front End Was Low. Upon Closer Inspection, The Passenger Side Spring Is Now Broken. I Haven’t Been Able To Get A Closer Look At It Yet, But It Looks Broken In A Similar Manner To The First One. Everything I’ve Looked Up Tells Me That These Springs Are Normally Suppose To Last Over 100,000 Miles, And Yet Both Mine Have Broken Now Before Hitting 65,000 Miles. Once Again The Spring Could Have Easily Sliced The Tire Or A Brake Line, And Had I Been On The Highway When That Happened It Could Have Easily Ended Badly. This Really Needs To Be Looked Into, From All The Other Related Problems I’ve Seen, It Sounds Like A Bad Batch Of Springs. *tr

I Was Pulling Out Of My Parking Space When I Experienced What Felt And Sounded Like Running Over An Empty Soda Bottle. I Even Looked Back To See What I Had Run Over But Saw Nothing On The Ground. Needless To Say I Continued On My Way But While Driving Down The Highway The Front Of My Car Felt Like It Was Bouncing Up And Down And Was Hard To Steer And Control. It Was Taken To The Dealership Where It Was Purchased And I Was Told That The Front Left Coil Spring Had Broken And This Was Going To Be A Major Repair. I Was Shocked That Something Like This Could Randomly Happen And Was Informed That This Is A Typical Result Of An Accident (which Was Not The Case) And Was Then Later Told That Is Can Occur From “normal” Wear And Tear Or Age Of The Car. Now This Is Where I Became Skeptical Because The Car Is ~4.5 Years Old, Less Than 54,000 Miles, Is Very Well Kept, And Although I Have A Long Commute It Is Primary On The Highway. I Have Done Some Research On This Issues And It Appears That I Am Not The Only One That Has Encountered This Issue In The Same Year, Make And Model Of This Car. I Have Also Spoken To A Few Mechanics Who Also Feel That A 4.5 Year Old Coil Spring Should Not Just Break So Easily As It Did. I Did Ask To Keep The Part And Now Have It In My Possession. I Have Contacted The nissan‘s Corporate Branch But Found That To Be A Dead End After Several Back And Forth Exchanges Over The Past Few Months. After Speaking With A Few Other nissan Owners They Were Not Surprised As Not One Of Them Has Ever Had A Pleasant Experience Dealing With This Corporation. *tr

Althuough I’m Not Sure Exactly When It Occurred, I Suspect It Happened While Dodging Winter Potholes In Streets Leading Into Cleveland, Ohio For An Event There. Returning Home On The Freeways, My Wife And I Noticed The Ride Was Extremely Harsh. Later I Noted The Drivers Side Was Low In The Front. Actually There Was Only An Inch Between The Tire And The Wheel Cutout. I Tried Bouncing The Front Suspension But Is Was Solid. Clunking As I Drove Out My Driveway, I Went To My Dealer Service Manager Who Did A Quick Look At My Parked Car . He Knew Instantly It Was A Broken Coil Spring And Had A Set For Both Sides Readily At Hand. The New Springs Are Only Warrantied For 1 Year Or 12,000 Miles. Which Makes Me Think They Haven’t Solved Thier Problem And I Don’t Like The Idea Of Paying For It While Being A Test Driver. I Never Owned A Car In 55 Years Before That I Did Not Trust.

Put Car In Gear And Started To Pull Away From Parking Spot. Drove Maybe 100 Yards And Heard A Loud Bang. I Pulled Over And Looked Around. Noticed Part Of A Coil Spring Laying On The Ground. Looking At The Car It Was Obvious It Was From Mine. Took It To The Local nissan Dealer And They Looked Over Car. Said That They Have Not Seen This Happen Before And It Should Never Happen. After Looking Over Information On My Car And Seeing I Had The Extended Warranty They Told Me I Needed A New Strut And Spring As Well As An Alignment. nissan Would Help With The Cost Of The Strut But Not The Spring Or Alignment. How Is This Possible When The Failure Is Caused By A Coil Spring Breaking. A Part That Should Never Break. Service Advisor Said Spring Broke Because Of A Little Rust Spot On It. Someone Needs To Explain To Me How Cars From The 50’s Have Rusty Coil Springs That Don’t Snap But A 2009 versa Has A Rust Spot And It Snaps Off. This Matter Needs To Be Addressed By nissan. There Maybe Only A Few Complaints On Here About It But Google “09 nissan versa Coil Spring” And You Will Find Tons Of Complaints Of This Exact Thing Happening To The Left Front Coil Spring. Seems Odd That Its Always The Front Left. *tr

On The 21st Of April 2014 My Wife Left Work. As She Was Reversing The Car She Heard A Loud Grinding Noise And Then A Boom. The Front Right Tire Blew Out. She Found A Large Sheered Off Metal Piece Underneath The Car. We Took The Car In The Next Day To A Professional Service. They Found Out That The Spring Was Completely Destroyed. The Cost To Fix Everything Including The Tire Was $720. The Worse Part Is That They Only Had Oem Parts Available. This Means That They Had To Put The Same Defective Springs Back On Our Car. After I Filed A Report With Consumer Affairs nissan Contacted Me Back Saying That They Will Not Honor This Defective Part. We Purchased Our Car In The Summer Of 2010. The Spring Lasted Only Four Years. Had This Been On The Highway My Family Could Have Been Seriously Injured, Especially During This Recent Winter. This Is Our Only Car And We Have Three Children Under Three Years Old. No One Should Buy A nissan versa, Period, If They Care About The Safety Of Their Family. *js

Almost Caused My Family To Get Into An Accident And Could Have Ruptured The Tire Causing Further Damage, Which Was The Case For Many Other People. Upon Researching The Problem I Have Discovered A High Volume Of Similar Complaints With The Same Exact Vehicle In The Northern Parts Of The United States. I Assume This Has To Do With The Salt They Use On The Roads In The Winter Causing Rapid Erosion. My Mechanic Says This Shouldn’t Happen This Early In A Car’s Life. Other Car Companies, Such As Ford, Have Had Similar Issues And Did Issue A Recall. It Is Clearly A Safety Issue Which Could Cause A Fatal Accident If Not Addressed.

During The Month Of May 2014 The versa Started To Make Clicking Noises At The Front Of The Car Especially When I Applied The Brakes. The Sounds Got Worse And The Car Was Not Performing Well. I Took It To The Service Station In My Neighbourhood And The Person Who Repaired My Car Had To Replace The 2 Front Strut Mounts, 2 Front Coil Springs And Align The 4’wheels! The Car Only Had 5420 Miles On It At That Time. Now Today, I Took The Car Back To The Service Person As The Car Is Making The Same Clicking Noises And The Steering Column Is Making Noise When I Turn It To The Right! I Sent An Email To nissan Today To Inform Them Of These Problems And Also To Let Them Know That The Car Was Taken In Again Today For More Problems That Have Arisen! Thank You.

Backing Up To Change Parking Spot At Work. Heard A Really Loud Noise Front Right. It Ended Up Being The Coil Spring Apparently. Didn’t Know That It Was Because The Car Drived Okay After That. But When I Took It In For Oil Change And Tire Rotatation, That’s When It Was Discovered It Was Broken. Quite Costly To Replace. Then In September Of 2014, I Went Back In For A New Oil Change & Tire Rotation. When Mechanic Was Rotating Tire, The Front Left Coil Spring Just Snapped Right In Front Of His Eyes. Car Still Driveable, But Is Costly To Replace. I Have A Limited Income. Now, This Seems To Be An Extreme Problem With nissan versa. This Needs To Be Put In As A Recall And They Should Be Footing The Bill For Their Errors, Not Us , The Trusting Consumer.

When Pulling Out Of Garage Heard Loud Bang From Right Front End. Thought Had Run Over Something In Garage, But Found Nothing At The Time. Drove Several Hours On Highway Without Further Incident Until Turned Sharp Into Destination Driveway And Heard A Definite Suspension “spring-like” Sound. Drove Around The Block Turning Hard, But Sound Did Not Recur. Subsequently Heard The Same Spring Sound Intermittently, Especially When Making A Hard Turn. Had Problem Evaluated By nissan Dealer Who Said Right Front Coil Spring Was Broken And Needed Replaced. Subsequently Took In For Actual Repair And Dealer Instead Recommended To Replace Both Front Coil Springs (best As A Pair), Both Struts (since Right One Seeping Slightly), And Have Aligned. Total Quoted Cost About $750 For All Repairs.

My Car Was Being Inspected In November 2013. The Front Driver Side Spring Coil Was Cracked And Had To Be Replaced. In March 2014 I Was Driving Slowly And Heard A Horribly Breaking Sound. I Found Part Of My Front Passenger Side Coil Spring On The Ground. It Had Broken And Also Had To Be Replaced. On The Part That Broke Off From The Car; There Was A Clear Line. The Coil Was Coated With A Protective Enamel Like Coating And Was Perfectly Fine. There Was A Line However Where There Was No Coating On The Coil. This Was Completely Rusted Through. It Is Clear To Me That There Was A Defect In Manufacturing Of The Coil Springs. The Coil Springs Are Not Coated Properly And Are Therefore Rusting Where There Is No Protective Coat And Breaking. There Should Be An Investigation And Recall. I Had Purchased An Extended Warranty Which Covered These Repairs So Fortunately I Did Not Lose Any Money Or Suffer Any Injuries Due To This Negligence.

I Purchased This Car To Have A Safe Vehicle For My Baby To Ride In And Am Infuriated That After 5 Months Of Purchasing It And Only 72,000 Miles, The Front Passenger Side Spring Snapped Clean Off. There Is No Signs Of Rust And After Reading Numerous Complaints Of The Same Problem From Other versa Owners, This Clearly Is A Defect In The Part. Why Has There Not Been A Recall On This??? It’s A Major Safety Hazard. Is It Really Going To Take For Someone To Get Injured Or Killed Before Something Is Done About It, Or Is This Issue Just Going To Be Ignored?

2009 nissan versa Hatchback With 50825 Miles. Front Passenger Suspension Coil (spring) Broke Off While Driving. Very Loud Clang/bang Sound. Didn⿿t Know What Happened. Stopped Vehicle And Did Not See Anything Obvious. When Home In Garage, Upon Closer Inspection, Noticed That The Front Passenger Side Coil Had Broken Off. It Appeared To Have Rust On It. I Read Numerous Complaints Online Regarding Same Issue Online. This Is Appears To Be A Defective Part And A Safety Concern That Should Require A Recall. Cost To Replace Both Front Coils = $550

We Were Driving On The Garden State Parkway Doing 65 Mph When The Front Passenger Side Coil Spring Broke And Punctured The Passenger Side Tire Causing A Blowout. Luckily I Was Able To Maneuver The Car Onto The Shoulder Without Causing An Accident, But The Outcome Could Have Easily Been Different. At The Time I Didn
