2014 Nissan Versa Owner Comments

problem #6

  • 38,600 miles


Vibrations felt through the steering column, seats and floor, whenever car is in gear and stopped at a light or idle. Vibration gets worse when ac or defrost is turned on. It goes away when I put the car in neutral. However car takes some time to move when shifting back to drive, and this can cause someone to hit you from behind. Taken to the dealer 3 times. I was told that this vibration is completely normal and there is nothing that can be done. Very disapointed to say the least.

Vehicle moves abruptly left and right when there are no grooves or wind at highway speeds. It's very dangerous and cannot be driven on the freeway safely. Nissan test drove vehicle. Acknowledged the problem and said that's just how the vehicle is and there is nothing they can do to fix it.

The steering wheel locks up when engine is shut off. When I place they key into the ignition, the steering wheel remains locked, preventing the switch to turn. It takes a great amount of effort and strain to unlock the steering wheel. This has happened on more than one occasion. My car has 2200 miles on it currently (09/29/2014). I took my car to the Nissan dealership. They advised me (my interpretation of their advice) to wrestle with it until it unlocks. Didn't help my situation. I will continue to return to Nissan until they fix it.

Driving down the highway I found that the car would move sideways 1 and a half feet on a non windy day. When driving on the freeway and you are on concrete the car tracks 1.5 feet sideways right or left. When driving on a day when the wind is 30mph you get 3 to 4 feet drift right or left. Taking the car to Nissan for repair they found that yes it did drift and blamed it on the road and that Nissan had on fix. I do have 2 other cars which have the same size tires that do not do the change lane action that is with this car is doing. Other people said they noticed it to. There will be a time when the car next to you will get damaged due to this action.I `called Nissan headquarter they had no fix.and said it might be the tires. Nissan put the tires on the car.
