2010 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

problem #4

Check engine light came on and turns out the evaporator had a crack in it so paid Nissan $1,500 to replace it with a non-genuine evaporator part. Then about six months later the check engine light came on with had ac at speed 4 when driving at any speed. Told the blower motor was bad and needed replacing at the cost of $1,500 to do it. Refused the work and ran blower motor on A/C at speed 3 for about a month then after that seemed to work at speed 4 as well with no check engine light coming on. I thought it was probably the speed rheostat like happened to me on a Ford I had cost of item $25 and did it myself. The rheostat must have been stuck and become unstuck and I would have paid for a repair that was not needed and been scammed.

When I was driving back home from class approx 11:45 am, I turned on the air conditioned and the car slowed down and started shaking. I pressed the emergency light and pulled off the road to a shoulder. I wait a few minutes turned the car and it started shaking and making the loud noise. I turned off the air conditioning system and I drove home.

I purchased this car used from a dealership 11/3/2011, no problems whatsoever, had remainder of regular vehicle warranty left on it, no problems until the other day I thought it sounded louder than normal, so when I drove it yesterday it was still louder and I looked underneath and the muffler is loose and the exhaust sounds terrible. This is terrible for a not even three year old car with less than 30,000 miles on it!!! I called the garage where I bought it and they say it should be covered under warranty but I have to take it over for them to look at first to be sure so it better be or I will be quite upset if I have to fork out money on a car that is less than three years old on something with the exhaust! my previous car was a Dodge and I had it for 7 years and never had any problems with muffler or exhaust needing replaced in 7 years!!
