My 2009 Versa has 25,000 miles on it. I have a crack starting from below my wiper blade on the driver side that is 12 inches long. I just got back from the Nissan dealer. The service manager pointed out that a small 1/16 circular impression directly underneath the wiper blade is the reason for the crack. How does a rock hit underneath the wiper blade when it has not been raining in Atlanta for a few days. Last week I was on a road alone during a sunny day not using the wipers when I heard a pop sound. No cars around and I could not see any crack (because the blade was over the default impression caused by the window stress). Two days later the crack was noticeable. This is definitely a manufacturer’s defect and the company needs to be held accountable. Please file a complaint with the Attorney General's office.

I have a 2009 Versa and my windshield jsut cracked. It started in the black area, low on the window on the driver side. It is now a crack about 12 inches long. Wouldn't you thinnk Nissan would realize this is a problem and repair the windshields?

Hi, just purchased a 2008 Nissan Versa and when I got home I noticed the gas cap door won't lock. Does anyone know how to fix this? If it is a part missing? Was really bummed when I got home.
Another thing, the radio will not get one clear station. I know this has something to do with the antennae, but just can't figure out where it hooks up.

The gas door doesn't lock, but you could buy a replacement locking gap cap. Should cost you less than $20

This is the door that covers the gas cap. There is a lever inside the car to pop it open. It does lock, I can't drive around with a gas door flopping all over. I noticed a noise while driving home from the dealer last night and when I got out I saw it open and have tried to shut the door many times, but it won't latch.

Ah, I misunderstood... the door doesn't latch for you. I'll take a look at mine in the morning, but I'd bet that you just have something that's slightly bent in the latch mechanism, probably the part/tab on the door itself that catches in the latch. It's also possible that the latch mechanism or cable has come undone as well I suppose.
It's almost too hot to think here

I have to admit I really like the styling of the new Versa. But the roominess of my 2011 hatchback can't be beat-It's truly amazing! It is entirely the reason I choose a Versa.
I really wish my car had a height adjustable seat...And I was hoping the manual shift would improve a little with the miles...But after 5000 the shift quality is pretty bad.
And it cold wheather it is has quite a few rattles.
But the sheer roominess in such a small car far outweighs the negatives....I'm really happy with it si far..six months in.
