2013 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

problem #4

Nov 122015


  • 36,000 miles


Suspension: Both sides front struts mounts and right side lower control arm, also called ball-joints are defective in just 3 years, right after the 36 months manufacture warranty expired. This is causing the car to bounce at moderate speed and more dangerously so on the highways. The vehicle would wander right to left uncontrollably. Steering U-joint defects: There is an ongoing noise while vehicle is driven and the steering column is shaking up unnecessarily and excessively.

The car wanders wildly at speeds of 55mph + and you are in another lane if the wind blows. Have brought to dealer, had tires rotated, suspension checked tire psi matching etc. It is design flaw with some component, whether it be the car is simply too light, or the suspension is too soft etc. This is a serious safety concern. I have actually been pulled over by state troopers for "excessive weaving", when it was windy out.

The contact owns a 2013 Nissan Versa. The contact stated that while driving approximately 60 mph, the vehicle began to wander out of the lane independently. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer two times for inspection. The technician was unable to locate a problem and informed that both front and rear wheels were correctly aligned. The failure recurred whenever traveling 60 mph and above. The manufacturer was notified of the defect. The approximate failure mileage was 115. The VIN was unavailable.
