  • 39,500 miles


Car in motion on NJ state highway 94, sparta, NJ. Car had 39K miles. The fuel pump failed on a two-lane highway with no shoulders, but was able to pull over into someone's driveway. It was a Sunday afternoon, 8/30/2015, but was able to get towed through aaa. Situation was dangerous because it is a busy highway. A fuel pump failure occurs without warning, is dangerous, and should not occur in a vehicle that has a Nissan dealer's regular service record, is under 40K miles, and driven only by two people in their 70's. receipt for repairs is available if requested.

Fuel pump shut off the car while driving and left stranded at 18,000 mi., engine blown at 25,000 mi., now fort wayne Nissan wants to jerk me around on a front suspension problem. The car makes a wobble sound when taking off after startup that they say is a ABS safety test. Problem is it never made that sound before, and only after engine replacement. Not only do they say the sound is nothing they say the car doesn't wobble and refuse to replace the defective parts while it was under warranty. Its almost like the brakes are not working too. I paid them 500$ for front brakes and the car still struggles to stop and I assume that is because of the front suspension problems. I am so afraid that the springs are bad just like I see in the forums. My dad owned this car first put the first 6K miles on it. This has been a lemon since the day I got it with 6K miles on it. Something has to be done. I have 7 kids and am terrified that this is being allowed to happen. Please help, this whole coil spring strut assembly problem is out of control, people are getting hurt ! I have already had 4 open back surgeries and cannot go through another.

There was no actual accident, but I am extremely concerned. On November 8th I was just starting on the highway, so not even at speed limit, when I felt that pressing on the accelerator it hesitated. I noticed it a few more times and then the service engine light came on. I took it to the dealership and they said to return a week later for the earliest service appointment, but that it was safe to drive. Once in for servicing, I was notified that it would need a new fuel pump because there was a leak. I spoke to another company and they said it seemed odd that for such a new car, it would need a new fuel pump. They also said that having my speed affected was very dangerous. My car is a little over 75,000 miles. I am unsure what to do in such a situation and feel that for safety reasons this should be investigated, especially having read of other such issues with Nissan Versas online.

Felt unsafe since purchase 7/2010 dealer refused same day to swap. Inspected repeatedly told nothing wrong. 2/2011 began repurchase with Nissan told nothing wrong. Nissan reg rep tried bribe new tires to drop repurchase before inspection then left. Dealer withheld documents. Rep said my vehicle had warranty on cvt transmission which it didnt. Went to 2nd dealer found transmission bad under warranty then replaced. Next day transmission exploded, fluid on back end+roof of car. On interstate smoke came through air ducts couldn't see. Fire under hood. Nissan had sent cracked transmission. Said would repurchase and rep said price no matter get what you need for disability Nissan and dealer will cover difference. I said afraid of another Versa, nothing close in price or design. Rep said we'll cover it. New rep took over retracted everything and laughed at breast cancer. Told her wanted supervisor and she gave me coworker [xxx]. said he spoke for Nissan no one over him. For 3 mos said didn't care. Dealer kept me hostage 6 hours and said I had to sign and buy a car or had to walk stripped of rental car. Cost to be decided later pick what I wanted/though I said had no money, returned rental tired of blackmail over no transportation. Paid for own rental ran out of money.
