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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2008 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

problem #2

There has been a problem found in some Versa sl's with manual transmissions, relating to the cruise control system. It has been found that on hot days, this switch may move, and cause the hydraulic clutch to disengage prematurely. This problem can be dangerous if it occurs in a remote area or on a heavily trafficked road. This problem will severely compromise your vehicle's ability to move, and your car may end up disabled or possibly with a burned out clutch if you ignore it. There seems to be a growing trend with clutch problems in Nissan Versa's ranging from mileage of 168 and up. Nissan fails to recognize the problem.

After stopping, car failed to accelerate even though the pedal was pushed all the way to the floor. This is a major safety issue and may cause serious bodily injury if not addressed immediately!!!!
