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.

2013 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 47,000 miles


The contact owns a 2013 Nissan Versa. While driving various speeds, the cruise control activated independently. The vehicle was driven to the contact's residence and parked overnight. Upon attempting to start the vehicle, it failed to start. An independent mechanic and dealer diagnosed the vehicle and stated that the fuel pump failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 47,000. The consumer also stated the air bag light illuminated and the vehicle continued to smell of gas, after the fuel pump was replaced. Also, the RPM fluctuated between 1500 to 3500 and the tire pressure light illuminated. Updated 10/13/16.

1. from the beginning, wind noise was noticeable. Management from dealership checked vehicle and said noise was from design of side mirrors. I called Nissan and they said there were no bulletins at time and until there were they could do nothing. 2. windshield has waviness across entire lower section of glass. This is noticeable where glass and cowling adjoin. New windshield was order from Nissan and installed. Same issue with replacement glass. My wife is 4'9" and finds this to be distracting. 3. heat shield over muffler came loose and vibrating. Poor quality. I understand from online blogs that this indeed has been an issue.
