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.

2010 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

problem #5

I opened my drivers door, the handle came completely off. The drivers door will not open from inside either. It sounds like it still works but nothing happens when you try to open it from the inside. The key will not open it, no outside door handle, possible interior plastic\electrical components broken. Vehicle still runs and drives fine. Powertrain is intact. Interior is falling apart due to cheap construction. Looked online to the Nissan forum board and saw many other people with same problem with door handles breaking for no apparent reason. Car is only equipped with one key entry on drivers side only. Keyfob and security system starting to break down. Went to Nissan dealership in steven point wi and they will only fix if I have money to repair. Ford dealership in Wisconsin rapids where I bought the car said that the warranty does not cover this. Repair could cost me over $700+.

When driving I can hear a chirping noise from the engine area; when accelerating sounds like coming from the front right hand possibly the tires; the breaks do not react on command; the shifter material on the automobile delaminated; button on seat belt came off; driver rear door coming apart; engine light is on; experienced problems with water intrusion from outside; engine and engine cooling, exterior lighting, noise from steering column, electrical problems radio not working; vehicle has not started at times; rear hatch would not open; the automobile's gas tank had to be replace; when I received a notice of the recall I went to Nissan of bakersfield and asked about the recall for this automobile and they stated "we have nothing to do with that recall notice". we can not help you and they sent me home. The vehicle jerked while driving, the driver's window was inoperable, the gasket was replaced three times. Also, the battery had to be replaced. Updated 12/01/14.

There are two issues involved. Engine stalling and trouble starting. The engine stalled at low speed on multiple occasions. There were no indicators, the engine just cut out in the middle of driving. When traveling at higher speed, engine would stutter (dash indicators would quickly come on and then disappear.) the other issue is trouble starting. Sometimes when ignition switch is turned, it would not do anything. When it happens the only thing noticeable is the gear indicator shows blank (normally show 'P' for park). Sometimes the starter would crank and engine would start but only run for 1-2 seconds before stalling again. When it happens, pressing down the gas pedal while turning ignition switch would normally resolve the problem.

The TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) light refuses to go off. The tire pressure is correct per manufacturer's specifications and it has been checked monthly. When the outdoor temperature reaches 80 degrees F., the light shuts off. Living in new england, the light is on most of the time. Ironically, 3 months into car ownership, we had a flat tire and the light did not come on. The car currently has 14,500 miles on it.
