#57 of 148 2007 Nissan Versa Rattle Noise Problem Engine
Jan 28, 2007 (8:07 pm)
I just purchase a 2007 Nissan Versa in October at 400 miles I started hearing a noise from the engine when the car is idle in gear stopped and the brake is applied. From inside the car is sounds like a constant rattle. I took it to the dealership and they can't figure out what the problem is because this is all new to them. Is anyone else having this problem?????? It's almost like something is loose and when the engine vibrates it's making the rattle it can get very loud a times. It's now at 4000 miles and they still can't figure it out.... Anyone else across the country having or had the same problem?

THe only Rattle I have is my exhaust system, and was caused hitting a carcus of a dead dog. The part came in, and gets fixed on Tuesday. Before that, no rattle, and my car has 8000 miles on it.
#59 of 148 got our V

We finally got our V, hopefully the wait allowed some of the bugs to be addressed.
Got a Brilliant Silver SL, CVT, convenience package, audio deal, moon roof and satellite capabilities. The dealer claimed he over paid us for the trade in but I suspect we paid very close to MSRP.
It would appear that most dealers in our area (Council Bluffs/Omaha) are able to have Vs on hand now, high percentage of Ss. Had the feeling they were moving a lot of cars around. Ours had 145 miles on it and saw another on a flat bed.
Have yet to see a V (knowingly) on the road including a couple of weeks in the Seattle area.
Demographics; we're both retired seniors, also have a Honda van.

Picking up the new addition to the family in the morning. Looking forward to this Versa lasting as long as my previous Nissan vehicles have, although I think it will be a while before it catches up with the 235,000 miles on my '96 Sentra

Twice I've had a problem with my car starting. Once started, the engine light came on and the car went into safe mode. It would drive more than 20 KM. Was your experience similar?

Has anyone had this problem......Twice my car has been hard to start, the engine light has come on and the engine went into safe mode. Safe mode did not allow me to drive faster than 20 KM/hour.
The car has been tested with all the equipment at the dealership and tests fine. Yet, something is definintely wrong. I've had the car for 3 months. First incident happened at the 2 month mark. The car has 6500 km on it.

my car has never gone into safe mode, but when we had our cold snap that came through the southwest, I found the car really didn't want to start in 28 degree weather, It started but not as easy as before.
