Engineering flaw on nissan's behalf. Water collects into the vehicles cabin and undercarriage and affected the electrical harness so much that it affected the braking system and abs light to come on. I lost braking power and could of had a serious accident. My whole electrical harness is non existent at this point. The car is not driveable at this point. Their have been numerous complaints about this and it's unsafe to drive. Nissan needs a lifetime recall on this or needs to refund our money back. I've contacted nissan consumer affairs in hopes to get some reconciliation, but that remains to be seen.

When taking off the transmission belt slips all the time so i try to ease into the gas as gently as possible. When a/c is running the car has almost zero acceleration and has a stuttering or stumbling issue that causes issues until i hit 3000 3500 rpm then seems to gain power. I have issues on the highway with the transmission seeming to slip out of engagement of the belt when speeding up to pass. When slowing down for a light, if the light turns before i come to a complete stop and i go to reapply pressure to the gas pedal, if i dont gently apply the gas the transmission belt will slip and cause the car to shutter. Im not sure what is causing this issue, but i have had since i purchased the car around 40000 miles, a cricket chirping noise that in the beginning was always at 2000rpm and no wheres else in the rpm range. Now it has gotten worse to where i seem to hear the chirping noise anywhere around 1500 rpm to 2250rpm range. As well i have had the radiator fan quit working causing the motor to over heat pretty bad but the head gasket didnt fail luckily. I have also had the entire time i have owned the car, an issue with the a/c when it starts up the clutch basically cluncks on or makes an awful noise kicking on and while the a/c would run before the fan failed, the air would start smelling very very bad. It smelled like chemicals of some sort and it would make me very natious to the point i would have to turn the a/c off and living in the desert in tucson, arizona this does not make for a very good comfortable ride at all.

IF YOU HAVE THE AC FULL BLAST AND ARE IDLING AT A RED LIGHT THE CAR WILL STALL OUT AS IF IT WEREN'T GETTING FUEL BECAUSE IT WON'T START RIGHT BACK UP. IN ORDER FOR ME TO START IT I HAD TO PRESS AND DEPRESS THE ACCELERATION PEDAL WHILE ATTEMPTING TO TURN IT OVER. IF TURNING OVER EXCEEDS THE BATTERIES VOLTAGE IT WILL KILL THE BATTERY RESULTING IN WORSE PROBLEMS. IF YOU'RE LUCKY IT WILL TURN OVER AFTER A LONG TIME TURNING IT OVER WHILE PUSHING GAS PEDAL BUT IF YOU DON'T UNPLUG AND PLUG IN THE FUEL PUMP IT MIGHT NOT WORK. IF YOU IDLE FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME YOU'LL STALL OUT FOR SURE ONCE THE CAR STARTS SPUTTERING HITTING THE GAS PEDAL WILL ONLY INCREASE THE SPEED OF THE STALL BECAUSE LETTING GO SEEMS TO DRAIN THE SYSTEMS FUEL AND IT SEEMS YOU'LL HAVE TO GET THE FUEL RUNNING THRU SYSTEM AGAIN. THIS CAR ALSO HAS A LOT MORE WRONG WITH FOR STARTERS THE TRUNK IS NOT SEALED BY WELDING IT HONESTLY LOOKS LIKE BROWN PAINT WHICH DOESN'T COMPLETELY COVER THE CRACKS BETWEEN THE FRAME AND TRUNK BOTTOM AND SOMETIMES I GET LIGHT HEADED WHEN IDLING BEFORE IT STARTED TO STALL OUT. THIS PARTICULAR VEHICLE WAS MADE IN MEXICO AND SEEMS TO BE CHEAPLY MADE BECAUSE THE TRIM DOESN'T EVEN DISPLAY THE Versa S JUST VERSA ASIDE FROM THAT IMMEDIATELY AFTER PURCHASING IT THE PASSENGER DOOR LOCK NO LONGER WORKS NEITHER DOES THE TRUNK. YOU CAN HEAR THE WIND THRU THE DOORS WHILE DRIVING AND THE FLOOR SEEMS POORLY INSULATED FROM HEAT. THE BLOWER MOTOR ISN'T BLOWING THE AC OUT AS HARD AS IT WAS. WHEN ACCELERATING POPS ARE HEARD COMING FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE CAR WHICH I DON'T KNOW THE SOURCE BUT I DO KNOW IT CAN'T BE GOOD. THIS VEHICLE IS MY MOTHER'S BUT I DRIVE IT A LOT AND THIS IS ONLY MY HALF OF THE EXPERIENCE. I HONESTLY THINK SHE GOT SCAMMED BECAUSE THIS 2017 CAR DOESN'T HAVE ELECTRIC SEATS, DOOR LOCKS OR WINDOWS AND DOESNT EVEN HAVE A KEY FOB OR ALARM.

THERE ARE SERIOUS DESIGN FLAWS ON THE 2018 Nissan Versa THAT ALLOW WATER (I.E RAIN) TO COLLECT BELOW THE WINDSHIELD AND WHEN THE COLLECTED WATER DOESN'T DRAIN IT FLOODS THE CAR ON THE FRONT PASSENGER SIDE. THERE IS A WATER GUTTER UNDER THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS THAT RUNS FROM EACH SIDE OF THE CAR. IT HAS TWO VERY SMALL DRAINS ON EACH SIDE. THE DRAINS GET PLUGGED BY DUST, DIRT, ETC. NORMAL STUFF THAT CAN GET ON THE CAR, AND THE WATER COLLECTS AND BUILDS UP IN THE GUTTER. THERE IS A HOLE FOR SOME CABLES IN THIS AREA, ABOVE THE GUTTER THAT THE BUILT UP WATER CAN FLOW THROUGH RIGHT ON THE PASSENGER FLOOR BEHIND THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT. THE WATER DRAINS OUT ESPECIALLY WHEN THE CAR IS MOVING/IN MOTION. IF THERE IS A HEAVY RAIN, THE ENTIRE CAR FLOOR GET FLOODED. THE HEALTH DANGER IS THE WATER HAS NOWHERE TO GO INSIDE THE CAR AND GETS MUSTY AND MOLDY. THIS CAN BE FIXED FOR APPROX. $600, HOWEVER IT WILL LIKELY HAPPEN AGAIN BECAUSE ALL IS DONE IS UNPLUG THE SMALL DRAIN HOLES. NISSAN ALLOWED A SERIOUS DESIGN FLAW IN THE 2018 VERSA SEDAN THAT LEADS TO FLOODING AND WET FLOORBOARDS, A DRAIN THAT IS PRONE TO CLOGGING, AND A HOLE FOR WATER TO FLOW INSIDE THE CAR. I FOUND OTHER COMPLIANTS ABOUT THIS ON GOOGLE. MY CAR DAMAGED HAPPEN APRIL 2020, AND OTHER CAR OWNERS HAS HAPPENED IN 2019. PLEASE HELP US.

My daughter was involved in an accident going approximately 30 miles per hour. She and a chevy silverado were traveling in opposite directions when their traffic signals both turned yellow. Thinking she was going to stop, he pulled out in front of her causing her to t-bone his truck. Though she hit head on, not a single air bag deployed. The impact was enough that her car has been deemed a total loss and she suffered a concussion. She was not wearing a seat belt unfortunately.

Hydrocarbons are leaking into the car cabin. I have taken my car to nissan several times and had two regional tech specialists look at the vehicle. I even gave nissan the name of the mechanics that found the leak as well as a copy of my medical record that said i had carbon dioxide poisoning. The last inspection i had with nissan they refused to give me a copy of the invoice/workorder. Nissan said if i wanted a copy i would have to go through the legal department. Now the check engine light is on. I bought the car brand new. I has less than 20,000 miles and i took it to the dealer 10 times for the same engine leak that i making me sick.
