The vehicle was shifted into drive and the ABS light came on and the brakes failed to stop the vehicle. The vehicle had to be steered into a curb to stop it before it entered oncoming traffic. This vehicle also hesitates upon turning which is a hazard while driving.

I have had a recurring problem with the car when filling it with gasoline. The gas nozzle has been ejected from the car during filling. Typically the gasoline pump will stop dispensing gasoline when the nozzle is ejected. However, there was one incident when the nozzle continued dispensing gasoline while the nozzle was laying on the ground. I had to quickly pick up the nozzle and turn it off. This problem does not occur every time I fill the car with gasoline, but I feel that there is a recurring issues here and it should be resolved because of the risk and hazards associated with spilled gasoline.

Nissan Versa, always had issues with gas gauge fluctuating. Igauge read 79 miles in driveway, I pulled out of driveway into main road and went about 25 feet, has gauge started flashing. Told grandson I had to go to gas station before taking him to school. We drove about 1/4 mile and heard pop under hood, car jerked really hard to right. I had no control and hit mail box, car kept moving forward along ditch. Finally come to stop with windshield busted and front bumper and undercarriage badley damaged. Air bags didn't deploy, police were called and car was towed.
