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

We own a 2008 Nissan Versa. It currently only has 9,400 miles on it. When driving it there is a "popping" feel underneath the floorboards/ in the front end of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealership 2-26-09 where they replaced both upper strut bearings and completed a front wheel alignment. Again, the vehicle exhibited the same issues and on August 5, 2009 both upper strut bearings were replaced and another alignment was completed. We took the vehicle to the dealership again yesterday with the same complaint. This time they say they can't "hear" it (you can't hear it, but you can feel it), so they didn't do anything. They refused to even put it up on the lift to take a look at the assembly since they couldn't "hear" anything. After doing research, we are seeing this same complaint on many different websites. Nissan needs to fix these vehicles. One listed on this site was involved in an accident apparently due to the strut failure.

The front left driver's side of my 2008 Nissan Versa hatchback started to thud/thump when turning to the right at low speed. Now the vehicle cannot not turn right quickly, thus I could not avoid an accident in an emergency situation. I have taken to dealer and they cannot reproduce the symptoms, but I encounter daily.
