My husband was backing our Versa out of the driveway when he heard a piece of metal hit the street and the front passenger side of the vehicle sunk down. He found a U-shaped chunk of metal on the ground after the front suspension coil had cracked completely clean in half. The mechanic had to replace the entire front suspension system as it appeared to have the beginnings of a crack in the coil on the other side as well. Fortunately, it did not happen while driving at any speed. The mechanic said he was surprised that the dealer had the parts in stock, making me think this might be a common problem. I reported the problem to Nissan as well.

Our daughter was pulling out of our driveway when she heard a loud pop and the right front of car nose down. She then backed back into the driveway and called me. When I can home I jacked the front passenger side up and removed the tire to find coil spring had broke and cut a grove in the sideway of the tire.I found the other part of the coil spring laying out in the road 10 feet from our driveway.while I was working on the car I asked my daughter to call the Nissan dealer about repair cost which they did call back with but she said the serviceman never asked what had happened. This is a problem and a safety issue which needs to be addressed.

During a regular servicing, it was discovered that the front coil spring (driver side) had broken. It appeared that it had been broken for some time due to the rust evident throughout the broken piece. The vehicle has only 16K miles of light Suburban driving, so I feel a defective part must have been used in the manufacture of this car.

Both front suspension coils broke. I heard, then saw something drop off my car. I went back for the part and drove to the dealership. It was part of a suspension coil. They put it up on the racks and found that both front coils were broken. They said they have never seen this on any car before. It seems to me there has to be a defect either in the metal used to make the coil or in the design. The dealership said there is no recall issued from Nissan on this, but I wonder if it is something that should be investigated in case there is a defect. I was lucky but someone else might be hurt if the suspension is falling apart.

While pulling away from a parked position in our driveway, the passenger side front coil spring broke. The remaining larger portion of the spring was now rubbing against the inside wall of the fr tire. The jagged edge was closer to the engine side, fortunately. The smaller broken piece was on the ground, shaped like a half circle. There was no rust on either spring piece.

Popping noise heard in suspension and felt in steering column during left and right turns at slow speeds. Per Nissan dealership its because of a defective upper strut bearing, per the tsb's and complaints listed it could range from a number of issues including the intermediate shaft and linkage. The suspension on this vehicle has some serious issues that need to be addressed.

My husband was backing out of the garage and a piece of the suspension coil (driver side front) fell off for no reason. My four year old twins were in the back in their car seats. We are currently towing it to get it fixed. We called a dealership and they said only certain vehicles from that time period are covered for this defect. There is a national technical service bulletin about it. Our car is not covered (determined by dealership by VIN). I would hate to think what would have happened if my family was not in the driveway but instead driving down the road when this happened.

The driver's side front spring broke on my 2007 Nissan Versa. Luckily, I was driving slowly (about 30mph) on a quiet road (no big pot holes or bumps). I heard a huge pop and then had trouble steering. After pulling it into a gas station, I quickly noticed that the entire front driver's side was nearly resting on my front tire. Luckily, the tire wasn't compromised by the spring/body. The car was not drivable and had to be towed. From my knowledge of cars, springs tend to last for the lifetime (or beyond) of the vehicle. This is dangerous and unexpected.

The entire control panel went out. After restarting the car, it appears there was a burning smell. More repairs for a car that is only a few years old and not even paid off. Began with the suspension right after the warranty went out. What a piece of pooh!

The 2007 Nissan Versa pulls to the left while driving. While decelerating the steering wheel shakes violently; additionally you can hear a squealing coming from the front end while braking. It sounds as though the universal joint is coming loose.

  • 30 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Versa. While driving approximately 60-70 mph, the vehicle veers to the left. When decelerating, the vehicle veers to the right and feels as if it will spin out. The contact has scheduled an appointment at the dealer for June 29, 2007. The powertrain was unknown. The current and failure mileages were 30. The consumer stated took the vehicle to cerrito's and the mechanic test drove the vehicle and stated there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. The foreman stated it could be steering but since it is electric and does not have power steering. She does not know if that is the reason the vehicle is veering to either the right or left. The consumer stated feels unsafe driving the vehicle and provided emails from other consumers with the same defect. The consumer also provided a copy of the repair invoice. Updated 07/31/07
