#68 of 77 If they want to give you another Versa
Feb 10, 2007 (8:25 am)
for your troubles then I would take them up on it. Is that what you meant by "except for the salesman trying to sell me one after I already bought it"?
It's under Warranty so they have to make it right for you. With Florida's heat hopefully its sooner than later.

A salesman from the same dealership must received a sales tip that I was interested in one so they contacted me again. It has been a week and a day since I took it in and I have not received any calls back yet. Maybe should of bought a HONDA !
I am patient and I guess we will see, and your right the dealership has to make it right , its just WHEN. I am not going to hag them to death by calling and calling but one would expect a call back for status on a brand new car. Playing wait and see. Generally Nissan are pretty good cars I know its the first year so that expalins it , I am sure they will work onit and make it right; hopefully right ?

Chris, I have had my versa since July and living in PHX, where its maditory to have AC, I never had a problem with the AC unit, in fact I was nice and cool the whole time this past summer, we run the AC 24 hrs a day durning May thru Sept. Take it back to another a dealer, and remember this, Do not be nasty to the service advisors, they can make getting your car fix a breeze or make it a pain in the a**...
#71 of 77 AC problem - solved

Today was thefirst daysince I picked up my Versa that's been warm enough to test the AC, and pretty much no cooling was going on at all AC light would come on, but as far as I could tell, the compressor wasn't even running.
So I stopped into the dealer and described what I was seeing. They were able to take it right in and found the issue. (I LOVE my Nissan dealership and have been dealing with them since 1979!)
When the car was assembled and the low pressure line was attached to the compressor, the o-ring apparently got pinched or torn and the seal was compromised, resulting in the refrigerant leaking completely out. With no refrigerant, the compressor disables itself as a safety issue. (The refigerant also acts as the lube for the compressor system.)So my observation of the compressor not running was also correct!
A little over an hour later, out I go with a car that WILL keep me cool as the weather heats up.
2300 miles and counting

which dealer in FL did you get your versa?
has the problem been fixed?
by the way in FL there's car shops where you can take your car and they will take your manufacture warranty. If your Nissan agency is taking to answer you maybe you should take it some place else. I also leave in FL and I don't have AC in my current car. It sucks, that's one of the reasons I am getting a new car (versa sl) within a month. good luck!

I recently purchased a nissan Versa, And other than a few minor issues, minor issue number one, when I turn on the air or while I am driving down the road I hear
a noise like the air is restricted from comming out, this can range from total failure
to partial failure, It seems like shutting it off and letting it sit for awhile might be the ticket.. But I am looking for a fix if anyone know what is going on please give a shout. it restrict the air flow from the defrost vent and at the bottom when you turn it on the heat. There must be a fault part, the part that switches the vent to be wide open instead of closed, had a little problem like this on my montana van, would not
open all the way for vent, but thats another story, thanks fro your help in advance.
2007 nissan versa, thanks
#75 of 77 AC problem
Jul 06, 2010 (9:58 am)
I purchased a 2010 versa 2 months ago and already have a problem with the AC. I took it to the dealer complaining it was making a loud clunking or grinding noise when I turned it on. They said it was the compressor and ordered a new one. I took it back and they installed the new compressor but after the 2nd day, it's doing it again. Has anyone else had this problem? Now I have to go back to see what they say this time. I've also noticed the engine seems to run a little rough at times and the car is slow to accelerate. It's a bit frustrating since this is w brand new car. Anyone have any input?
#77 of 77 Intermittent Rattles
Feb 07, 2013 (12:35 pm)
Ten miles from the dealership, my brand new 2010 Versa manifested its first of several intermittent rattles. They all come from various places under the dash and I have made many, many trips to the dealer over the last 2 1/2 years in an effort to chase them down. Only one has been remedied. I HATE intermittent problems because they rarely occur when the service manager drives it. You end up looking like a whiner. All the trips to the dealer (30 miles from my home) finally wore me out. My 2001 Sentra, with 170,000 miles, actually has fewer rattles! Nissan customer service is friendly, but they basically just run you in circles, back to the dealership.
Has anyone had a similar experience? Or did I get Nissan's only "Monday morning" car?
