Nissan is recalling 218,019 Versa sedans and hatchbacks for front coil springs that can break, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
On the 2007-2012 Versa, the springs can crack due to a lack of phosphorous coating or bits chipping off when the spring compresses, during which road salts and other corrosives may eat away at the metal. The springs have been known to snap randomly without warning, sometimes taking tires and brake lines down with them. Nissan has found the problem on at least 356 cars and NHTSA, since opening an investigation in May, found at least 93 owner complaints. In response, the company tried convincing the agency that the sudden noise and ride height change would be enough warning for the customer to bring in the car for service and that flat tires didn’t pose a safety risk.
That didn’t work, and now the company has to recall them—but due to agency rules, the recall applies only to cars that were ever registered in 22 “salt-belt” states and Washington, D.C. (The full list of states: Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.)
Dealers will replace both front coil springs starting in mid-November. In August, Nissan recalled nearly 300,000 Versa models from 2012-2015 for a loose trim panel that could interfere with the driver’s feet and pedal operation.
