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

I Purchased A 2009 nissan versa. I Have Just Over 40,000 Miles. While Driving On The Highway At 65 Miles Per Hour In The Left Lane, My Car Suddenly Shut Off And Lost Acceleration At An Alarming Rate. Due To A Guard Rail On My Left, I Needed To Get Over To The Right Lane Quickly And Was Just Barely Able Do So Safely. I Was Almost Involved In A Very Dangerous Accident! My Car Was Towed To A Local Repair Shop And It Was Found That My fuel Pump Was Dead And Needed To Be Replaced. I Had To Pay For A Very Expensive Repair On A Relatively Brand New Vehicle !

2009 nissan versa. After A Couple Of Months With Car And About 15k Miles Later, I Started Hearing A “thump” Noise On The Steering Wheel/column. I Took It In To The Dealer And Got It Fixed. A Couple Of Months Later At About 30k, It Began To Do The Same Thing. I Took It In Again And Got It “fixed”. At About 40k It Started Doing It Again. I Don’t Have Warranty On It Any More So I Haven’t Taken It To Get Fixed. However, I’ve Been Reading Threads Online About People Experiencing The Same Issue, To The Extent They’ve Crashed Due To The Car Not Turning, While Initial Signs Starting With The “thumping” Noise.

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 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

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

I Purchased This Car New And It Was Passed On To My Daughter. No Accidents Prior To The Incident That I Am Reporting. In April, My Grandson Called His Father And Said That He Had A Flat Tire. Upon Inspection, This Flat Tire Was Caused By Broken Right Front Coil Spring. I Am Glad That The Car Was Parked When It Happened. Mileage On The Car Was About 34,000 Miles. I Am Very Upset About This Because This Could Have Caused A Very Serious Accident. My Grandsons Are Special To Me. This Vehicle Should Be Recalled For Inspection And Or Replacement Of The Coil Springs On All Of The versa Automobiles. This Is A Definite Safety Issue. Is nissan Going To Sweep It Under The Table Like Another Manufacturer? The Repairs Costs $217 Which Was A Very Reasonable Amount. The Possible Risk Is Not Reasonable. I Just Checked The Web Site So This Should Be Incident Number 44 That Is Reported To You. *tr

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.

Recently I Noticed A Piece Of Metal Near My Mailbox. Looking At It I Quickly Realized It Was Probably A Piece Of My nissan versa Hatchbacks Left Coil Spring. Sure Enough, The Breakage Matched What Was On My Car. Why Did I So Quickly Guess That It Was From My Car? Because My Right Coil Spring Went At About 39000 Miles And I Had Read Up On nissan versa Hatchbacks And Sure Enough, A Bunch Of People Have Had This Problem (i Acutally Was Waiting For It To Happen). My Right Coil Spring Broke More Drastically When I Was Going At Highway Speeds And I Went Onto A Bridge. There Was A Loud Clang And My Allignment Went Whack. Later Upon Inspection At A Repair Shop, I Realized That I Could Have Had A Very Bad Crash Seeing That The Sharp Part Of The Broken Spring Coil Was Only A Few Inches Away From My Tire (it Was Pretty Ugly Break). The Repair Cost Me 200$ With A Student Discount, Which I Very Cheap, Some People Fair Worse. The More Recent Left Coil Spring Broke Without Me Even Noticing Anything, I Only Found The Broken Piece About Half A Ring Size. Since It Was Near My Mailbox, It Must Have Broke Off At Low Speeds, Probably When I Drove Over The Little Trough In Front Of The Drive Way For The Drain. Somehow The Rest Of The Spring Just Re-alligned Itself So I Was Actually Able To Drive My Car Without Noticing Anything Wrong. I Obviously Wont Drive It Now Unless Its To A Repair Shop. This Is Unacceptable, I Am A 4th Year Electrical Engineering Student And I Am Dissapointed At The Engineers Who Designed My Car. Other versa Drivers Had Their Wheels Blown By These Broken Coil Springs From What I Have Read, I Have Just Been Lucky. I Am Surprsied There Has Been No Recall Yet By nissan Or Atleast Some Warning, Perhaps No One Was Seriously Hurt Yet. When I Get Out Of College And Look For A New Car, I Don’t Think I Will Consider nissan. Thank God I Wasn’t Hurt By These Failures.

Recently, I Submitted A Safety Complaint Here About A Broken Coil Spring. At About 39k My Right Spring Went And Was Replaced By A Genuine nissan Replacement Coil Spring. At About 61k, My Left Spring Broke. I Ordered A Replacement From nissan And Was Going To Replace It. Unfortunately, I Noticed That The Already Broken Spring Had Snapped Some More And The Newly Replaced Spring Had Snapped As Well When The Car Was Simply Sitting On My Driveway! The New Right Side Spring Only Lasted About 22k Miles Or 15 Months. Basically, I Have Experienced 3 Broken Coil Springs From nissan After Only About 61k Miles Of Driving. I Have Read The Stories At The Carcomplaints Website And Many Are Similar To Mine. Please Investigate This Problem Before Someone Gets Seriously Hurt.

My Service Engine Soon Light Came On So I Dropped By Advanced Auto Parts To Have Them Pull The Code. It Read As Cylinder 4 Misfire. I Took It In To Mcgee Auto To Have A Detailed Diagnostic, Which Indicated That I Had A Bad Coil On One Of My Spark Plugs. I Had Four Spark Plugs Replaced, An Ignition Coil Changed, And Intake Manifold Resealed; However, After Leaving And Getting A Few Miles Up The Road The Ses Light Came On Again. I Stopped At Another Advanced Auto To Have The Code Pulled And Again It Read As A Cylinder 4 Misfire. I Contacted The Repair Shop And Was Asked To Bring The Car Back In. They Did Another Full Work Up And Again Found Everything To Be Fine. After Leaving The Shop Again The Light Came On A Few Miles Up The Road. This Happened Repeatedly, And Every Time They Would Shut The Light Off It Came Back On And Remained On. In March Under New Management, I Returned To Mcgee Auto And They Took Another Look. After Posting My Symptoms Into The Computer They Noticed That My Original Plugs Had Been Replaced With Aftermarket Plugs. They Replaced All Four Plugs And Coil, And Did Something With The Fuel Injection At No Additional Cost To Me. After Leaving The Shop A Couple Miles Up The Road, The Light Came On Again. I Took The Car Back In On Monday, 3/18. Further Research Entailed A Compression Test. Cylinders 1 Through 3 Had 130% Compression, But Cylinder 4 Only Had 70% Compression. I Was Advised That The Issue Is An Engine Problem And Without Tearing It Down They Are Unable To Identify The Exact Cause, But It Could Have Something To Do With The Piston In Cylinder 4. In Contacting nissan, They Found That My Warranty Coverage Is For 60,000 Miles And Unfortunately I Was At 66,000. When Asking What This Really Means I Was Told That I Will Likely Need A New Engine Or A New Car Because It Would Be Costly To Tear Down The Engine To Find The Problem. *tr

July 2, 2013 – While Driving The Service Engine Soon (ses) Light Comes On. The Rate Of Speed Does Not Seem To Have An Impact On This Problem. I Have Taken My Car To The nissan Dealership On 7 Different Occasions For This Problem. Each Time The Computer Reveals The Following Code: P2a00 A/f Sensor Failed. So Far The Following Repairs Have Been Done: Replaced Front Air/fuel Sensor (nov 2011), Replaced O2 Sensor And Reprogrammed The Engine Control Module (ecm) (mar 2012), Replaced The A/f Sensor For The 2nd Time, And Reprogrammed The Ecm For The 2nd Time (april 2013), Replaced The Fuel Pump (may 2013), Replaced The A/f Sensor For The 3rd Time (june 5, 2013), Reprogrammed The Ecm (june 18, 2013),and Finally Replaced The O2 Sensor For The 2nd Time (june 27, 2013). These Repairs Have Not Fixed The Problem. The Ses Light Has Come Back On After My Latest Service In June 2013. I Am Frustrated And Feel That Something Else Must Be Going On. nissan Is Of No Help And Is Not Offering Any Further Assistance Other Than To Replace The Same Parts Over And Over And Reprogram The Ecm. Very Frustrating! *tr
