#9 of 36 Versa windshield
Oct 22, 2008 (7:03 am)
Nissan needs to work on the vibration in the windshield area, I took my 2008 Versa in after vibration throughout windshield area. I was hearing the plastic shifting and making cracking sounds. After the mechanic and myself took it out on a test drive he came back and used weather striping to pad the plastic around windshield and that has solved the vibration to that area. However, If you have anything empty in the cupholders in the car, once again you hear vibration. This is more than likely the issue with everyones cracked windshields.

I am having a similar issue with my Nissan Versa sedan. I haven't owned it a year yet, but I've already replaced 2 windshields and have a crack in the third. My crack, however, has appeared on the passenger side, in the black area below the dash, and come up a few inches before traveling across to the driver's side of the car. The first time it happened, I simply called the insurance company and had it repaired. About 4-5 months later, I had the same type of crack in a similar spot. The guy at the dealership came out and traced the crack until he found a small hole (about the size of a pin hole) and told me I must have been hit by a stone. I didn't think too much about it and just called the insurance company and had it repaired.
Well, now it hasn't even been 3 months and I have the same crack on the passenger's side. I can't believe how many others have had the same problem.

i just noticed the same thing on my Nissan Versa 2008, after only 10000 miles. Windshield crack appeared on the upper portion of the passenger side and went downward nearly 4 inches . Glad i found this site. I thought i was the only one with this problem. I am going to report this to the Nissan service. I hope they will cover vehicle warranty.
#12 of 36 No luck with my windshield

I have been driving around with my third windshield that has been cracked for about 6 months now. I tried everything to get Nissan to replace my windshield, but Nissan would not do a thing about it because I have an after market windshield (not Nissan glass). I would demand that they replace the windshield because this is a stress crack. Make sure that this gets up to the regional specialist because I believe that they make the decision about replacing the windshield. Yes there might be a tiny pinhole along the line of the crack, but this would most likely not be caused by a rock. I have several stress cracks in my windshield now, but I am not going to replace mine until my car is due for an inspection in December. My windshield has been hit by several rocks since this has happened and I have yet to get a crack like my previous three windshields. Good luck and let me know how you make out.
#13 of 36 versa paint problem

I have a 2007 white versa and the paint yellows. It takes quite a bit of elbow grease and wax to remove the yellowing. Does anyone else have this problem? I took it to the dealership and of course they said it was my water. I have had no other problems with my other vehicles.

I would check if the dealership has a car wash and if so, see if you could get your car washed there. Tell them that if it continues, tell them that it is their water and demand that you want it fixed (and also get your money back for the car washes). If they tell you to call the 1-800- Nissan phone number, good luck because you basically talk to people in the Philippines.

I have had the exact same crack several people described on my 2008 Versa. However, my experience was even worse. The crack started at the bottom in front of steering wheel, went up a couple of inches then turned right. There was absolutely no sign of any rock mark, ding, etc. on the crack. My father, who is quite knowledgeable re: autos, looked at it and said it was a stress fracture. I took it to the dealer, and was told they would have to look at it to determine if it was a stress fracture which would be covered under warranty. When I walked up, one service tech stated to the man who was assigned my account "it's another one of those wierd stress fractures". While one had me completing some paperwork another worker went out to "start writing up the order". Low and behold, when we walked out to look at the crack a few minutes later, there was a tiny chip-like mark on the crack which had not been there before. I stopped short of calling them crooks and I just paid to replace the windshield out of pocket. I won't name the dealer because I'm afraid they could say I'm slandering them. But this is clearly a problem. If you have this problem, take pictures and watch the people who examine your car.
#16 of 36 2007 Nissan Versa Magnetic Grey Paint
Nov 24, 2009 (8:06 pm)
When I first got my car, someone scraped it within the first month of having it. When i went to the dealer to get touch up paint, the color they gave me did not match. It was more lik ethe lighter silver color that Versa come in. I went back to the dealer a number of time. One guy even tried to tell me that touch up paint wasn't going to match exactly. I knew that he was wrong. It shoud be pretty darn close if not exact. Has anyone else had this issue? Has Nissa fixed this issue?

No, the dealer was pretty much right about the touch up paint since the touch up paint you put on is an exact match for the original color. But the original color on your 2007 has been exposed to 2+ years of the sunshine and the elements and has changed just slightly.
The only time I've ever had a touch up paint color match exactly is when a car is brand new and hasn't had any fun under the sun.

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.
