My 2014 Nissan Versa S will not exceed 23 miles per hour. It happened first on 12/26/15 and I had it towed to a Nissan dealership. They called several hours later saying the car was fine and was unable to find a problem. Today it happened again 12/28/15 I was leaving a from a doctor appointment and once again the vehicle would not go faster than 23mph. I drove the vehicle about 3 miles into the nearest Nissan dealership and had them drive it so they could see what I meant. They did drive it and said they will give me a loaner car and would diagnose more tomorrow. This is a safety hazard for sure, .

When I got in the car, I went to start it by pressing the brake. The brake pedal went all the way to the floor and the accelerator pedal did as well. It took about 10 minutes for them to release and come back up, before I could get my car started and drive back home. I was scared for my life it was going to stick again on my 2 hour ride back home.

I purchased a 2014 Nissan Versa from maita Nissan in sacramento (now called sacramento Nissan) on September 12, 2014 and I'm just not satisfied. The VIN number is [xxx] I purchased a 2014 Nissan Versa from maita Nissan in sacramento (now called sacramento Nissan) and I'm just not satisfied. This car does not at all sound like a new car. I drove it off the lot with 9 miles on it, but immediately noticed how difficult it is for the transmission to smoothly get into gear. It's loud and almost sounds like it's completely broken. When I put the car in reverse I hear a loud clunking sound whether it's on a flat surface or in the driveway. I've discussed hearing this sound before 4 different times and also went to the Nissan service department 4 times. I'm being told nothing is wrong. I didn't purchase a "brand new" car to have all of these problems. I called Nissan Consumer Affairs and advised them about the issues and requested a buy back. After waiting 3 weeks for an answer, they advised me on 4/9/15 that they are not going to accommodate my request. I feel this car has an unsafe transmission and braking system. Please investigate this issue. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

There is a coolant smell coming from the engine, no noticeable signs of a leak. The main coolant tank was full but the overflow was empty. Dealer said it was a common smell with no further explanation. After filling the overflow, the smell still persists. The overflow loses about half a cup per month. No overheat or cooling problems noticed.

2 separate occasions the ABS has failed to function and has locked the wheels up solid until the pedal was released and depressed again. Also the air conditioning when on makes car pulse to the point that at a stop unless you are full depressed on brake the car will lurch forward as compressor kicks on.

The car is slow to heat up and after driving about six to fifteen miles the temperature drops to a very low level. Sometime the temperature is so low that it does not show up on the dash gauge. This condition is most prevalent when the outdoor temperature is low. This makes it impossible to defrost the windshield.
