I bought a 2007 Versa in July 2006. The first year, it spent more time in the dealer's garage than mine....complete new A/C system, BCM replaced, rear main oil seal leak, TPM re-set 7 times. The dealer and Nissan engineers always took care of us but really inconvenient. The car has now been trouble-free for the last 30,000 miles.
Thanks for the plug change info. Denso iridium plugs are expensive but with the hassle involved in changing them I will spend the extra money for their longer life.

Not sure what happened to you in the end BUT I had exactly the same problem with my 07 Versa. I ended up taking it in 10 times to the dealership and being patted on the head and told there was nothing wrong with CVT transmissions and I was crazy. They had to replace the entire transmission in my Versa. SO I took it back to the dearlership and said I was not going to pay for a new car that would need to have its transmission replaced within 6 months! They rolled my lease into a new 2008 Versa fully loaded, however in the summer I started expierencing new electrical problems with my new car, my ABS light would go on, and my hatch would sound like it was unlocking and locking on its own. It would even do it when the car was shut off and I was standing 3 feet from it! I took it in to my dealership they told me the hatch had been slammed and needed to be adjusted. I told them it was an electrical problem, and sure enough the very next day it did it again. The worst part was when the hatch would lock and unlock on its own it would either be totally sealed shut OR not lock at all causing the Alarm to go off!!! Now just this week it wouldn't start at minus 12 degrees. SO I think Nissan Versas are JUST BAD CAR's I am having to start arbitration myself I can't pay for a car for another 4 years that is brand new and is already bad!!! Did you end up getting yours fixed????
#119 of 242 Nissa Versa Service Advisory - Fuel Pump
Aug 06, 2008 (1:23 pm)
I have had to sometimes pump my gas pedal before starting my 3 month old Versa to get the car to start. Took it to the dealer today and they ordered a fuel pump.
The Manager told me it is a known problem with all Versas that the fuel pumps need to be replaced. I asked if there was a recall and he said no, that Nissan was handling it as a service advisory.
You all may want to contact your dealer to find out about this.

You folks with misbehaving fuel pumps may want to file a complaint with the NHTSA. For example...there have been problems reported with fuel pumps on some 2008 Elantras. In some cases, the cars have suddenly slowed on a highway or in an intersection, which could be very dangerous. If the NHTSA gets complaints on the Versa's fuel pump, it would likely open an investigation which could lead to a recall action, and address the problem for all concerned.

Already did that, What angers me is that they know it is a problem with the fuel pumps - accordign to the service manager, they all have the problem - and aren't doing anything unless you mention you are having a problem.

Can someone get me the link for this service bulletin, as my kid's '09 Versa is having this problem alot lately and they need to see the bulletin in writing to do it.
TIA folks for any help with this matter

That's a link to our Edmunds page on recalls and TSBs. Only thing I've been able to find through more digging is:
Versa (C11) 07-09
* IF YOU CONFIRM: The engine needs to be cranked for a long time (4-10 seconds) before the engine starts. And Fuel system pressure after engine shutoff drops lower than 200 kPa (29 psi) after 30 minutes time. ACTION: Replace the fuel pressure regulator. See the Service Procedure for instructions on replacing the fuel pressure regulator.
Your dealer should be able to pull up that TSB though.

Feb 21, 2009 (10:12 am)
I haven't been to this forum or thread for a long time, and just seen your comments/questions. I will do my best to answer:
I'm really jazzed on a Cube as my next car but NOT if it is a mirror image of the Versa. I'll look to a Fit or new Insight, perhaps.
It depends upon what you mean by "mirror image." Personally, I wouldn't use this phrase when comparing the Cube with the Versa/Tiida.
The Cube that we get will be fitted with a CVT, right?
Correct. 6MT will also be available on the NA Cube.
Different engine or same?
The same engine as the Versa's, you mean? If so, yes. It will be MR18DE.
Cube is made in Japan - is the Versa assembled in NA?
Correct on both fronts. The NA Cube, as all Cubes so far have been, will be assembled at the Oppama Works in Japan, whereas the NA Versa is being assembled at the Aguascalientes facility in Mexico.
Is there a JDM version of the Versa that is different?
Actually, the Versa is the NA version of the Tiida, with the NA market-specific tuning and slightly different sheetmetal.
Are there Renault parts on the NA Versa?
It depends on what you mean by the "Renault" parts. As you know, many Nissan cars use the same global platform as the Renault. The Cube, as with the Versa, uses the B platform which is also used in the Renault Clio III and Modus. This platform is the most widely used in the Nissan cars and was jointly developed by Nissan and Renault.
