While I was driving on the 10 freeway headed East near downtown los angeles, my car's brakes suddenly did not respond, causing me to hit the car in front of me. Before the incident the car's brakes worked fine and after the incident they functioned normally. I tried multiple ways to get the brakes to "bite" but always got a dead pedal and never got the car to stop until I hit the car in front of me at around 20 mph. This car has some flaws on it that should be looked at including the brake pedal, which does not respond very well to driver input, the lazy transmission, which hesitates too much and dealers refuse to fix, the ignition/starter, the flimsy body that looks like it was made out of the same material as toys and its axles that can't stand extensive city driving.

problem #2

Versa 4-cyl

  • 73,000 miles
This car is a 2008. Kept in fantastic condition. The muffler randomly broke off of the car. There is no rust on the underside of the car. The few months it was driven in the North it was washed free of any salt. After researching this it seems to be an ongoing problem with this make and model of car. It was a clean break. Hopefully can be welded back together, but this break is certainly due to the cheap material it is made out of. Nissan should recall these parts. This is affecting alot of Nissan Versa owners around the same exact mileage frame.
