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.

Nissan Versa 2007 front coil spring snapped. The car was parked in driveway.as we backed up heard loud clunck piece of coil was on ground. Lucky to be in driveway at time it happened. Took car to monroes the tried to get part no good went to dealer. They first said 2 days to get part. Did not happen. Not the part has an unknown eta. Nissan dealer parts person said there we 584 coils on back order. This problem seem to be metal defect when the spring was made. Really hard to believe Nissan does not have any in stock.they are still producing Versas so why not get the coil springs from the assembly plant. It is costing a lot of money to rental a vehical with no repair in site. Maybe this need to be a recall on this part. I have a piece of the coil if needed for analizing. Thanks

Left front coil spring broke. Car was parked in garage and when it was started in order to back out of the garage, there was a banging sound. I got out to see if I had hit anything on the garage and found a piece of the spring on the garage floor. Spring was replaced.

On June, 2008 I purchase Nissan Versa from an insurance auction. The damages on the vehicle were on rear end, and front bumper was missing. No damages on the front. I personally fixed the body damages and present the vehicle to salvage inspection. The vehicle successfully passed the test and was registered with restore salvage title. Odometer was showing little over 12000mi. The first 1000mi. I didnżT have any problems. When the vehicle reached about 13000mi. I noticed a clunking and knocking noise in the front end of the vehicle and I felt it in the steering wheel. The noise was coming from passenger side. All these issues are acting when the vehicle is driving slowly and making right turn going up on the driveway or down on the driveway. I asked the dialer if the car is still covered with manufacture warranty although it has restore salvage title. The answer clearly no. I did some research on the net for recalls and surprisingly I found forums which discuss the same problems. Despite numerous complaints on the net and even after the dealer acts and tries to fix the vehicles by replacing multiple parts and components the problem are still existing. All this is very disappointing and I donżT see any reasons to visit the dealer and trust them to fix it. I didnżT see any recall information for the problems listed above. IżM european certified mechanic and IżM working with different vehicles, but Iżve never seen such a problem! I inspected my vehicle multiple times and could not find any reason for this noise. Today 07/08/2010 two years after I first notice this problem the noise is much louder. I still canżT find any reason for this noise. It seems like Nissan dealers donżT have clear answer which part causes this noise. Please take all this into consideration and investigate further this issue. Please note there has not been accident with this vehicle yet because of the written above. To fill this complaint I'm putting today's date.

About April 8 2007 9 days while purchasing this car I reported a complaint to the local bayridge Nissan service department about a clunking and knocking noise in the front end of the car and felt in the steering wheel, the vehicle had less than 200 miles at the time. After at least 12/15 trips to various service department for repair attempts, right axle, struts, strut mounts, strut bearings on the left and right side, the problem would not go away. They eventually placed large metal washers between the sub frame and cross brace support because they stated that the sub frame bushings had sagged, or where improperly installed at the manufacturer. Now the steering feels loose and the only way I can describe it is it feels as if the steering column is separating when taking turns over uneven road surfaces.they have changed right axle many times but no use, Nissan North America representative mr justin hall revied case 3 times could not fix the vehicle from his mechanic send by Nissan. This vehicle is adangerous vehicle I have no other means to as I have tried two 2 Nissan service stations and Nissan mechanic, still problem is there 2 weeks back brake suddenly went down I drove with out brake for a while, my family travels in this car. Any incident / accident due to failure of these parts I will held Nissan liable.

On or about March 26th 2009 I reported a complaint to the local Nissan service department about a clunking and knocking noise in the front end of the car and felt in the steering wheel, the vehicle had less than 32,000 miles at the time. This was not my first attempt to get this issue looked at, but it was the first time they acknowledged a problem. After at least 6 trips to the service department for repair attempts, struts, strut mounts, strut bearings on the left and right side, the problem would not go away. They eventually placed large metal washers between the sub frame and cross brace support because they stated that the sub frame bushings had sagged, or where improperly installed at the manufacturer. Now the steering feels loose and the only way I can describe it is it feels as if the steering column is separating when taking turns over uneven road surfaces.

Front right strut was replaced 3 times among other parts without any luck to solve the problem. Also that car has a problem with the A/C system that comes from the factory without enough freon or no freon at all.

My vehicle has been in the shop repeatedly for the front end "popping" when turning right. The right strut and bushing, rack and pinion, and sway bar has been replaced. This vehicle still has a quick "pop" which can be felt in the steering wheel when initially turning right. I fear something may fail when driving and loss of control may occur. This has been an ongoing problem that even Nissan cannot seem to fix. I have complained to Nissan about this issue and as you can see they have replaced numerous parts. I don't know what else to do.
