2008 Nissan Versa Problems

condenser damage/ location of condenser

A/C condenser located at the BOTTOM of radiator 2 feet off the ground. Gee, wonder why it picked up a road stone and went thru condenser? Now my 11 month old Versa has to have $1000.00 of repair to fix an obvious manufacturers design flaw. Not happy.

Fuel Pump that went bad on 2008 Nissan Versa

I own a Nissan Versa 2008 hatchback. After I pull away from the gas pump, the car was losing its acceleration and stall. I was trying to start again but it wouldn't turn over. The car was towed.

I was told that the fuel pump went bad. My basic warranty expired two months ago (December 5, 2010). The fuel pump was recplaced at my expense.

I will just list everything I have had to replace and you be the judge: *CV Axle (within the first year) *Multiple hubcaps (within the first two years)--Side Note: This is a well known problem for this car and the manufacturer refuses to replace them without the owner paying full price. *Right control arm *Three engine mounts *Tire pressure monitor ...

I have developed my own personal opinion of this car through my mechanical experience, and find it to be a highly over priced piece of crap. The subframe "floats" on rubber mounts that road salt destroys. All rubber bushings in this car cannot hold up to "salt belt" weather conditions. All of the factory service and fa...
I bought my 2008 Versa new in 2009 (leftover on the dealer lot). Had a few very minor problems at first (tire pressure warning light, gas door latch) that took too many trips to the dealer to get fixed, but otherwise things were okay until a few weeks ago. Catastrophic failure (oily antifeeze all over the engine compartment). Had it towed to the dealership because there was one month left on ...
