The 2007-2012 Nissan Versa is being recalled for front coil springs that may corrode.
The affected vehicles were manufactured between May 8, 2006 to November 12, 2012 and were sold or registered in the District of Columbia, 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. In those states, road salt may corrode the front coil springs, possibly resulting in the coil springs fracturing.
If a front coil spring fractures, it could contact the tire and possibly puncture it, increasing the risk of a crash. The affected vehicles are equipped with front coil springs that have insufficient anti-corrosion coating and as part of the recall, Nissan will replace the front coil springs free of charge. Notifications to affected owners will be sent out in November.
