I could add several more complaints but this is my biggest. The car is under the power train warranty of up to 60k miles but the transmission completely broke down at 63k miles. The shops quit doing that because owners blamed them when the trans went out all the way. Two different shops, one of the shops being a Nissan dealership itself, assessed the car yielding same result - transmission failed and need a new battery. Now to the recall work, one was about the airbags, one was about the suspension. I also installed a transmission filter.
Nissan knows that these transmission are defective but have failed to notify owners of the vehicles. This brought the car down considerably where we could afford it! Closer to the 58-60k miles mark the tachometer went crazy, jerking the car. I would not recommend buying an overpriced car from Nissan or anybody. Do you know where I can buy a service manual for my car? So much so, they doubled the warranty on the 2010 Versa for this very problem. And the same thing is starting to happen again. I have reached out to Nissan to inform them of the situation and reports.
In 2017, the car was stopping in the middle of the road to the point that I could not drive anymore, putting my life in dangerous. Fluid is cheaper than a tranny and i dont trust the dealer if he says. The car had a few problems in the beginning but they were addressed and corrected to the best of my knowledge. Lubricating the rubber o-ring on the new oil filter will allow it to form a better seal and make it easier to remove during the next oil change. Other than that there's nothing wrong with the car. Love that they offered this in the color red.
I did have one issue of a torn cv axle during the transmission repair which will hopefully be covered as well. However, the car would not jerk forward when shifting from park to neutral and then to reverse. It's also a good idea to twist off the oil filler cap by turning it counter clockwise. Page 242 has the oil pan and overflow tube connection locations. She took my phone number and advised me that a service technician would call me. If you need help , a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, can perform this task for you.
After only three thousand miles, I got my third oil and filter change at the dealership, and it was worryingly dark, thick and burnt smelling at only 10,000 miles. I like having a back seat that folds down for cargo loads. However, as soon as I left Nissan, I realized that the problem was not solved at all. My car is small rather compact. I checked mine and it was clean.
There must be some type of class action lawsuit for all the money that has been flushed down the drain by consumers who invested in Nissan and the 2012 model. But the Icing on the cake is the attitude of Nissan customer relations dept. The problem being that by then there is enough metallic particle in the fluid to then have it act partially as the clutch disc, and a fluid change at that point then removes that to have the trans slip horribly as soon as the fluid is changed. The question now is one of durability. . They found nothing wrong with my car. The car idles rough, the defrost vents don't even aim at the windows properly, it acts like it is going to conk out on cold mornings even after warming up, you have to be a small person to be comfortable, my tall roommate, literally can't get in comfortably the door locks are ridiculous, there is no way to unlock any of the doors from the outside except the drivers door, and it is designed so that opening the door causes you to brush the lock and accidentally lock the door unknowingly, great way to lock yourself out.
At 80K miles, the transmission failed on a regular routine maintenance car. A very expensive lesson learned here. We both feel blessed beyond words! My Nissan Versa started to not move. How many people will die because of the trash transmission being produced by Nissan? Because of the issues I experienced with the Versa, due to no fault of my own, I feel I should be compensated for the cost of the repairs. That and having the temperature set to certain modes during the process. I have tried hard to get Nissan to help me out with my transmission problem.
Nor has she or I been told about this when the vehicle was bought. I owe 6000 still on the car. The Versa had 70,619 miles. This vehicle is only 3 years old. If you found this guide to be helpful, please consider making a small donation by clicking on the PayPal.
The Nissan Versa and many newer vehicles do not come equipped with transmission dipsticks. Thanks I am always at a total loss to explain how people who change engine oil regularly have so much trouble with maintenance on other like items. After driving it for a few days I'd went back to the dealership, spoke with my salesman Mr. I took my Nissan Versa to a another transmission shop to get a second opinion. At this point, do I go ahead an take the dealers word or get a second opinion or change the fluid myself per alldatadiy procuedure, check to see if the transmission fluid pressure sensor is good and go from there or what? Meineke technicians looked at the vehicle and thought maybe it was the speed sensors. The vehicle should be running when you do this.
Original review: April 22, 2019 Our Nissan Versa was called in due to a recall on the front coil springs. Original review: June 13, 2018 My Nissan Versa has good gas mileage and easy control settings. On the 10 Dec 18 I received a phone message from Nissan Canada. Although it is a piece of crap, the transmission failure was the result of a known problem by Nissan. The turning ratio is superb and dream to turn. The transmission problems with the Nissan vehicles are well documented. Now I am concerned with my safety because if I stop at an intersection the car sometimes won't move, people start to honk at me.
