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.

2008 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

Takata recall I was notified last summer about a recall on the air bag and was told not to have passengers in the vehicle due to the potentially fatal flaw. This is my only vehicle and I have a family that needs rides. I contacted the dealer recently and was told they don't have the parts and that Nissan wasn't allowing them to order the parts. I contacted Nissan and they tell me the parts are not available until some time in 2017. This is unacceptable that they are aware of the risk and are not expediting this repair to be performed. They basically give me the impression they don't care and they are not in a hurry to get this done. I expected this potential fatal flaw in the vehicle to be repaired asap not when they feel like it. This needs to be expedited because if anything does occur and their is injury or death it is on you and Nissan for not getting this taken care of in a very timely manner. I also have the tire pressure monitor system which I understand now is a federal regulation to have equipped on vehicles. This system is very faulty and does not work and extremely expensive to repair. I think if the federal government is going to require this they need to make sure the equipment is reliable and not a high cost to repair.

Front coil spring fell out from under the car as I was pulling out of a parking spot. If I was going any faster it could have been very dangerous if it punctured a wheel.

The coil spring on the passenger side front broke almost spearing my tire as I was about to back out of my garage. This vehicle sits in a garage all year round and is used daily. Luckily I did not make it out of my driveway or I may have gotten hurt at 65 mph or worse gotten someone else hurt because of this manufactures defect.

I was driving down the road when suddenly one of my hub caps came off. Next week, I was driving again and my other hub cap on the same side came off. This cannot be a coincidence. I know several people who have Nissan Versa's and they also are having the same issue.

I was pulling into a parking spot and I heard a loud snapping noise from the front left of the car. I was able to drive the car home as nothing appeared to be broken. When I took the wheel off I noticed the spring had snapped and was rubbing against my tire. I will have to replace my tire because it rubbed off a significant amount of rubber. I am lucky the tire didn't blow while I was driving.

While sitting in the yard we heard a metal clang sound coming from one of the cars. We looked but could not tell which car it came from. Later when I started to drive the car on the highway the front passenger tire shredded. This was due to the front passenger side spring being broken. We later found the broken piece where the car was parked. The vehicle only had 48,684 mostly highway miles on it.

March 2012 - tire sensor light went off; one sensor replaced. December 2012 - tire sensor light went off, and local tire shop said their diagnostic said sensors ok but that I should go to dealer. March 2013 - dealer's diagnostic said both rear sensors bad, but local tire shop's diagnostic machines said only one sensor bad (April 2013). One sensor replaced. April 2013 - tire sensor light went off, and same tire chain said sensors working as per their diagnostic machine. April 2013 - sensors relearned, but light went off within 1 day.

I parked my Nissan Versa in a parking lot while I was at work all day. I hadn't had any problems with it. When I got in to leave in the evening and put the car in drive and went forward a few inches, I heard a horrible crunching noise like I hit something. When I backed up to see what was under my car, I just saw a metal horseshoe shaped broken piece on the ground. My mechanic says it is a coil spring that broke. I've seen many complaints about this from Nissan Versa owners. The broken part didn't seem rusty at all. I don't know why this happened. The car hasn't been in an accident. It seemed to happen out of the blue.

2008 Nissan Versa hubcaps has flown away while cruising in highway at 60-65 mph. This happened twice already. The first time it happened I brought the car to service center and they checked the installation and everything looked ok. Bought new hubcap and it happened again after ~4 months. This is potential to cause serious damage and danger to other vehicles.
