2009 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

problem #10

  • 10,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Nissan Versa. The contact stated that the speed sensors for the tires failed to work and there was a loss of tire pressure frequently. The TPMS warning light flashed numerous times. The vehicle was repaired twice by a mechanic who replaced the sensors on the front driver side wheels twice, but the failure continued and the TPMS warning light continued to flash. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and recommended that the vehicle be taken to a dealer for diagnostic testing. The approximate failure mileage was 10,000.

The contact owns a 2009 Nissan Versa. While driving approximately 40 mph, the front passenger side tire deflated without warning. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the front passenger coil spring fractured and punctured the front passenger side tire. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred on three other occasions on both front coil springs. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 12,000. Updated 7/21/15 the muffler, tire pressure sensor, blower motor and battery were replaced. The coil springs and tire pressure sensors were replaced more than once. Updated 07/30/15

The low tire pressure light came on and when I checked I found a tire that was down 15lbs. I dropped it off at the dealer who said the TPMS unit was cracked and needed to be replaced for $218. The tire only has 8,000 miles on it. Will I have to replace the other three sensors?

2009 Nissan Versa. The TPMS "tire pressure monitoring system" the valve stems on all four tires was either cracked and / or defective, two were leaking air so badly I had to fill them back up with air every day> I thought I had driven over some nails that made them leak air. When I went to get them checked, I was shocked to find out it was the valve stems that was causing the problem. I had to replace them with rubber valve stems. Dealership was closed and going to call them about it. But don't think they are covered. Just glad I didn't have a blow out or sudden lose of air that could have caused me to wreck. This doesn't seem to be an isolated problem and the dealer should have a recall on faulty equipment.

I have had issues with the low-tire sensor since shortly after purchasing my 2009 Nissan Versa. I kept taking it to the local dealer and they would get it to go off but told me that it was not covered under warranty after 12,000 miles. So I would take my car to a local tire company and they worked on it a few times. When I needed new tires, they replaced all my tires with new ones, and even serviced the pressor sensors. Within 1/2 day of driving off with new tires, the sensor came back on. It has been on since. This system could save lives if we didn't have to ignore them so much!!! don't get me wrong, I love my Versa. I would rather it had a reliable tire pressure sensing system.

We have had nothing but trouble with tire sensor on the Nissan Versa. One has been removed because it is cracked and another one is failing. What happens is the tires loose an extreme amount of air because of this failure and could cause a catastrophe. We were told by Nissan that this is not covered under warranty but we would be glad to order 2 new sensors for approximately $300. That price is more than the tires are worth and we replaced the stems with standard ones and our light for tire sensor still is on and I am constantly checking the other 2 tires to see if a dangerous situation is developing.

I have had three tire air pressure sensor valves fail on three different tires since I bought my 2009 Nissan Versa in February 2009. Two kept losing air and triggering the light in my dashboard more frequently until it was every 2 or so days and I had it replaced with a plain valve till I could get to Nissan for a replacement. The other was suddenly almost flat and I had the valve replaced. The first time this happened, the dealership service said there was no problem, maybe it was the weather, even though only one tire was losing pressure every 2 days. I have changed dealerships and they have replaced 2, and I will be bringing in the third. All were originally diagnosed and had plain valves replaced at my local tire store. When will the fourth go, and will it kill me or someone else" are the replacements any better than the originals" I'm afraid to drive my new car.

I bought my car brand new in May 2009. In the midst of a harsh winter, we noticed that our tire was going flat and the TPMS light was on. We bought a new tire and the same thing happened. It was discovered that the TPMS gauge was cracked and leaking air. After research I found that Nissan recalled several vehicles for this exact problem. Because my Nissan Versa was not part of the recall, they refused to cover it. The gauge needs to be replaced and it cannot be driven safely without it.
