Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2007 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

problem #8

  • 105,000 miles


While driving our muffler started making a clunking sound, I pulled over and realized my muffler was not attached to the exhaust pipe anymore, the connection between the two had rusted. But muffler and pipe are not rusted at all, just the connection. I have heard other complaints about their Nissan doing the same thing, but Nissan wont take the blame and recall the components. Please help.

Muffler rusted completely off past the rear muffler where the flange meets the exhaust pipe. This happened prematurely for the vehicle given it's mileage and can cause a road hazard to other drivers.

The muffler sound seemed quite loud on Thursday, 12/27/12, something I had not noticed before. The next day Friday, 12/28/12, the muffler started rattling very loudly. I called to make an appt for service and was told it was a very common problem with 2007 Versas. I have an estimate of $400 to fix this. I've have owned other makes of vehicles for over 12 years that never have needed a muffler. Now that I've investigated, there are many reports of this issue, all seemed to report a poor design. The car has been garaged for the entire 6years that I've owned it and the body is actually showing rust that the dealer said Nissan would fix. Nissan refused saying the car is 6 years old.

I replaced the muffler and gasket on my 2007 Nissan Versa on September 21, 2012 the poor quality of the materials that Nissan used for the flange became brittle and cracked, compromising the structural and functional integrity of the muffler at approximately 62,600 miles. I am the original owner and take impeccable care of this vehicle and all my vehicles. If this safety/exhaust/emission problem had not been repaired, it may have caused injury (minor, major, and maybe fatal) to driver and passengers in the Versa as well as other drivers/passengers of other vehicles. This issue should not happen in this make/model/year with low to moderate mileage or any make/model/year of car since mufflers and associated parts have long been perfected.

My muffler on my 2007 Versa rotted off the main pipe. After doing some research I found out this is a common problem with the Versas. Why is Nissan not recalling these faulty parts. Now I have to shop around and hope to get a good price with replacing the muffler. I am sure I will be back and say the tail pipe had to be replaced because many people have replaced that part already too.
