If the vehicle is hard to start after setting overnight, the problem could be the fuel pressure regulator has failed and is allowing the fuel pressure to bleed off. A failed fuel pressure regulator will should be replaced.

2007 Nissan Versa Reviews
I have had to crank the engine at least twice to get the engine started immediately.
Lately it has been a 10 minute embarrassing crank period, with others wondering if I am "in need a jumpstart?" in parking lots.
It is not the battery, it seems.
I suspect the sparks, the fuel filter, the fuel pump, or at worst, all three.
My 2007 Versa SL is a hatch with under 20000 miles.
I actually like the car overall (it does have severe blind spots…this is a big drawback, and the AC started becoming warm at around 15000 miles), and I normally recommend things I like.
However, this fuel pump system seems to be my biggest reason for recommending with 70% thumbs up. If I am able to fix this spark plug/fuel filter/fuel pump situation on my own, then more percentage of my thumbs will follow.
If I have to pay hundreds in repairs for this, expect another review with more negative comments!
We have a 2007 nissan versa 1.8L. We have put 45,000 miles on it with one long road trip through the snow and 8 moutain passes from WA to NC. The first problem, yup, was the tire light. It has a mind of its own. The second problem is the outer door handle. I unlocked the door one day and went to get into the car. I opened the door and pulled on the handle and voila! The door handle came right out! The second thing now is the brakes. They stick to the rotors. You have to lift the pedal off the floor to make the brakes come off of the rotors fully. Never again Nissan!!
Don't get the 6 speed manual!!!!!! Ratio to short! shifting is redundant! Clutch slave and clutch lemon!! Too much shifting burns it out quick!Should of got the CVT automatic! Oh well Live and learn.
I bought my Nissan Versa S brand new in late 2007.
I had to take it in once for the engine motor mount went bad. It was still under warranty. I understand this is common problem with this make/model.
I still get 34-35 miles to the gallon. I use regluar unleaded fuel. I am 43 years old drive 20 mins to work daily. Live in Central PA. I follow the maintance schedule fairly closely. Currently 63,000 miles.
I love my Nissan Versa. Thinking of getting the Leaf once they get the design flaws worked out of the system.
It is a "zippy" car around town. Handles nicely. You won't brake any speed limits climbing mountains in this car. But you will save $$$ in gas.
Nice safety air bag systems through out the car.
I too have had issues with the Tire Pressure Sensors. I understand that this is a common issue with these cars over 75,000 miles.
Other than the pesky Nissan Hubcabs that keep losing their clips....I would recommend this car.
First, I really like my Versa; it has about 25k miles.
Recently I have had a starting problem. I would have to crank the starter for a long time (greater than 15 s) before starting. I tried pumping the accelerator, etc. I called to dealer service department; the rep. said the problem was a faulty pressure sensor; the cost to fix the problem: over $300. If one were kind, they would say that I'm frugile.
Anyway I came up with a FIX. Turn the ignition ON, pump the accelerator twice, then turn the key to START. The car starts in two or three cranks, everytime.
