I had previously made Nissan aware of a problem with my car stalling and shutting off. They assured me nothing was wrong with the vehicle, the car continued to stall and would not accelerate. Months later it would not accelerate and would decrease in speed while I was driving on the freeway. The vehicle would also not move when I would press on the gas at a red light or stop; I would have to turn it off and back on. Then it started to fail going in reverse and shutting off again while driving. Many other Nissan Versa owners have complaint of vehicles stalling. The vehicles are a huge safety concern and I believe Nissan knows this. I have now been told that the transmission does not work. Why has Nissan not done something about the terrible transmissions?

My Nissan Versa has 56,000 miles and I haven┐T had any issues with this car or any warning lights etc. Yesterday I drove my car and every time I stopped at a traffic light or stop sign the car would shut off then restart but then shut off immediately again. The RPM gauge needle was moving between 1 and 2 really fast. The car starts and then shuts off when coming to a complete stop and this just started happening

When I accelerate my car makes a pinging noise, like the ball in a spray can. The dealer checked the car and said they heard no pinging sound. This was about 4 months ago. Still doing the same thing. Changed the plugs, and using hi-test gas now, but same thing. Anyone have a solution I would greatly appreciate it.

Versa

  • 68 miles
With 68 miles on car, a click sound is always heard each time the air conditioning button is pressed to on position/light and the engine smells hot and gives off a burning smell every single time the car goes over 65 mph/acceleration from 60 to 65mph or from any other speed/mph up to 65mph makes the smell of a hot engine. There is no smoking but the air in the car smells at 65mph so I go 60mph to prevent the smell because it makes me very nervous. The car has not lost compression at any speed/climbs hills/but the smell happens when climbing a hill as well as being in motion at any speed or mph climbing the steep hills of NY. For instance if the speed limit is 30mph at the bottom of a hill and 55mph at the top of the hill, the cars engine will smell hot. No gages or red lights occur to indicate overheating. Radiator is not a problem because there is no light or no steam or smoke to indicate the problem. This only happens when the car is in motion. It is a standard/manual shift. And I did experience the pedal operation compromised when my shoe was caught under the side panel. I changed shoes then the problem was resolved....except for the recall which is necessary.
