2012 Nissan Versa: DO NOT BUY! I went over my 60K powertrain warranty by 580 miles and the transmission is blown. I drove this car for most of the miles and did not abuse it. The struts went bad around 40K and they would not cover it. I paid out of pocket only to find 20K later that they now recalled the car for faulty struts. After complaining to Nissan about the $4,000.00+ transmission repair cost they indicated labor would be taken care of. So, I have a car I owe 6K on, worth 5K and a repair of more than 3K. Never again will I buy a Nissan.
Bought my 2012 Versa new in December 2012. Just hit 68k on it and transmission (CVT belt) is shot. Car is rough, wind noise from day one could not be drown out by the weak audio system. Mileage is 39-40 if you baby it, realistically about 37 but with a 10 gallon tank if you drive a lot you spend a lot of time at the gas station. Lost heat shields off of the exhaust a few times and had to replace. All miles are highway and the majority were made on my drive to work. Just not happy with this car. This is the First Nissan I have ever bought, normally Chevy's or Fords and I regret the purchase. I understand this is Nissans lower line car but quality should still be a factor. Compared to my Chevy (210k)ths car is worthless, and my Ford van (160k) drives like a dream compared ot this car. Oh well, you live and learn but no more Nissans for me.
my car shut off on me while i was driving it an i believe my fuel pump is the problem because it will only run if i spray starting fluid in it but not with out. How do i change the fuel pump or where is the fuse for the fuel line located maybe just a fuse is my problem ?
I was able to drive my 2012 Nissan Versa to the Nissan dealer to be repaired after having some problems with the car starting and warning lights on the dash flashing. The car has now been at the Nissan dealership in Visalia, California for over 5 weeks. I have been driving a rental car provided and covered by the warranty. My name is David Gregory Carnes, I live at 1406 W. Princeton Ave., Visalia, CA 93277. My phone number is (559) 738-8222.
I purchased a 2012 Nissan Versa, and it is being towed AGAIN to the dealership as I type this. It just came out of the shop for a TCM sensor needing to be replaced (couldn't drive over 20 mpg), and now just out of the blue the radiator is just pouring water!!! REALLY??? a 2012 vehicle and it is only April of 2013!!!! Give me a break!!! NEVER
Horrible, horrible, poorly made car. I had most of the problems described and some. Nissan also has the worst customer service as well. Report to the Government recall agency. I traded mine in for another make and will never buy Nissan again. I get emails from a post I put online a while ago from people who have the same problems. Everyone has to contact the Government recall agency, after they get enough complaints they should investigate. If you see anything positive written about this car, it's either one of the very few lucky folks who got one that actually works or a Nissan employee.
Bought new with "Lifetime" extended drive train warranty to use for our company. SL Hatchback with CVT and hands free. Runs ok. Once Ethonol came into Florida gas mileage dropped to 26 - 27 MPG. Damning rattles from dash and hatch back cover - cheap, cheap, cheap. Original tires lasted 53k miles - could have gotten another 7k but had puncture that required replacement. Have done 100% of Maintenace on 4k mile synthic oil change interval - yet engine oil always looks dirty?? Last time ran engine oil cleaner theu it. STILL LOOKS DIRTY?? Engine always had mechanical "knocking" sound ESEPECIALLY on COLD 40 - 50 degree mornings. Took back to dealership twice - told it sounds fine? No Vales to adjust. They "ALL" sound like that?? Had fuel pump/regulator fail - warranty repaired at 52k miles. But have had 4 other major failures: 1) 52k miles - Left Axel with inner and outter CVC joints replaced (39101 - EM40C) - repaired under warrantry. No boot torn - just worn out in 52k miles??? 2) 68k miles - Right side axel shaft with inner and outter CVC joints (39100 - EM40C) $624 of which I paid $100 Deductible under the Exteneded Warranty. No boot torn - just worn out in 68k miles??? 3 & 4) Upon picking up from dealer who replaced RT Ft Axel, I noticed a "Clunking" sound coming from Rt Ft. I assumed it was something left loose so I took it back to dealer to be charged $50 & told "EXCESSIVE PLAY BETWEEN FRONT STRUT COILS AND UPPER BEARINGS" And I must have BOTH Strut Bearings replaced to fix it. Strut Bearings cost $28 each. With Labor and necessary Alignment - $540 Estimated Cost. STRUT BEARINGS??? WTF - $540?? Has anyone ever heard of this BS before? Please advise.
I've had this car for about 6 months and am on pace to put 40,000 miles on it by the end of my first year with it. So far, it has held up very nicely and have had no mechanical problems whatsoever. Overall fuel economy is great and I am getting just slightly under 40mpg combined. The interior light flickers a little bit while it's on, but it is merely a mild inconvenience and as of this writing goes away after the first few seconds. Overall I am very happy with this purchase and it makes a fine little commuter car.
Great car for the price fuel efficient We are now a one car family and we are quite satisfied with the 2012 Versa.
I ALSO HAVE A 2012 VERSA WITH 4000 MILES ON IT CHECK ENGINE LIGHT KEEPS COMMING ON AND OFF EVERY TIME I TAKE IT TO THE DEALER ITS A DIFFERENT STORY THEY HAVE HAD MY CAR FOR TWO WEEKS NOW AND STILL CANT FIND THE ISSUE I ASK FOR A NEW CAR OR MY MONEY BACK I WAS TOLD NO. THEY TRIED TO SELL ME A DIFFERENT CAR THAT WAS GOING TO COST ME MORE MONEY THIS CAR SUCKS NEVER GONNA DRIVE NISSAN AGAIN WHAT A BIG BIG MISTAKE
I have bought a 2012 Nissan Versa. I now have 4,000 miles on my Versa and it has cut off on me three different times. This happens when I am going slow. Does anyone else have this problem?
