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

Versa 4-cyl

  • 35,135 miles


I own a Nissan Versa 2008 hatchback. After I pull away from the gas pump, the car was losing its acceleration and then stall. I was trying to start again but it wouldn't turn over. The car was towed. I was told that the fuel pump went bad. My basic warranty expired two months ago (December 5, 2010). The fuel pump was recplaced at my expenses.

The contact owns a 2008 Nissan Versa. The contact stated that her vehicle was not getting the proper gas mileage. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they stated that the diagnostic did not find any failures. She was advised to keep checking the mileage. The contact stated that the vehicle was only getting 21 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The dealer stated that she should be getting 20-28 mpg on the highway and 27-30 mpg in the city. She felt that the dealer lied to her when purchasing the vehicle in regards to the mileage. The failure mileage was 6,900.

  • 100 miles
I have had this car for less than one week. The mileage is currently at about 275 miles. When I turn the key in the ignition, the car doesn't start until I hold the key turned for at least 5 seconds. This is very frustrating because it seems as if it will not start. This happens daily, whether it is hot or cold outside. It is not contingent on the time of day either.
