#42 of 51 washing underside of car
Sep 24, 2008 (2:57 pm)
The Nissan owners manual says to wash underside of car after winter driving on salted roads. How can this be done?
My only idea would be to take the car to a do it your self car wash and use the high pressure hand held wand to spray the underside of the car. But, the pressure is very high and i am affraid water would be forced into spaces it should not go in to.
would an ordinary car wash would do.

Most full-service car washes and many automatic car washes have a high-pressure underbody spray. That is what I use in the winter. My local gas station has an all-cloth automatic car wash with an underbody spray that is relatively cheap and does a good job.
#44 of 51 Problems with doors?
Sep 29, 2008 (9:20 am)
I have now owned my Versa for 4 months. A while back my passenger door started making these rattling noises and the window sounded like it was shaking also. So I took it back to Nissan and they told me that inside the door the motor that controls the window was loose and that this caused the problems. I was very happy when I picked it up, but guess what? A few days later I am living with the same problem.
This is pretty annoying and I know we don't slam the doors. They had it fixed, but I am already wondering why I bought this car. This is the second problem I had with this car within 4 months. Has anyone else experienced any problems with the doors?
#45 of 51 Battery Replacement
Oct 10, 2008 (6:16 am)
I have a 2007 Nissan Versa SL with the I-Key and my battery seams to be dieing. I have 40,000 miles on it. I want to know if I will have to have my I-Key reprogrammed after I replace the battery.

I agree with changing the oil every 6 months even if you don't drive 3k miles in that time.
I drive 1k miles per month. I used Mobil one synthetic oil in my old car and changed it every 6 months.
I just bought a Versa 3 days ago. Will use Mobil one in it and go up to 7500 miles or 6 months.
But for 5000 miles a year synthetic oil would be a waist of money.

Nissan dealer told me this morning that Nissan is extending the warranty coverage on CVT's to 10yr/120,000mi. Call your Nissan dealer because I think Nissan is going to reimburse for past repairs as well. Sounds like their stepping up to address their customer issues with repair cost.
#48 of 51 A/C compressor out after 2 yrs
Jul 07, 2010 (7:20 am)
My a/c compressor is fried w/ just 50,000 miles. The warranty is expired, but the car is only 2 yrs. old. I commute to work, but I take care of my car and have the maintenance done. Now the money I thought I saved on the price of my new car will now cost me nearly 2,000 in repairs. Has anyone else had this happen? My CD player was replaced for malfunctioning before 30,000 miles. Maybe that was an indication of things to come.

2000 bucks for an AC compressor?? You need to shop around, shouldn't be more than 400 - which is still unacceptable for a 2 year old car - but still. In fact, when you say "fried" it makes me think that it could just be the clutch pulley that is gone, not the whole compressor, which would be even cheaper, only a couple hundred.
good luck and keep us posted.
