Vehicles Affected: Approximately 218,000 model-year 2007-12 Nissan Versa cars manufactured between May 8, 2006, and Nov. 12, 2012, all sold or registered at some time 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
The Problem: Road salt may corrode the front coil springs and possibly cause them to fracture. If they make contact with the tire, it could puncture it, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace both front coil springs for free.
What Owners Should Do: Nissan will begin notifying owners in mid-November. Owners can call the automaker at 800-647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
