On June, 2008 I purchase Nissan Versa from an insurance auction. The damages on the vehicle were on rear end, and front bumper was missing. No damages on the front. I personally fixed the body damages and present the vehicle to salvage inspection. The vehicle successfully passed the test and was registered with restore salvage title. Odometer was showing little over 12000mi. The first 1000mi. I didnt have any problems. When the vehicle reached about 13000mi. I noticed a clunking and knocking noise in the front end of the vehicle and I felt it in the steering wheel. The noise was coming from passenger side. All these issues are acting when the vehicle is driving slowly and making right turn going up on the driveway or down on the driveway. I asked the dialer if the car is still covered with manufacture warranty although it has restore salvage title. The answer clearly no. I did some research on the net for recalls and surprisingly I found forums which discuss the same problems. Despite numerous complaints on the net and even after the dealer acts and tries to fix the vehicles by replacing multiple parts and components the problem are still existing. All this is very disappointing and I dont see any reasons to visit the dealer and trust them to fix it. I didnt see any recall information for the problems listed above. Im european certified mechanic and im working with different vehicles, but ive never seen such a problem! I inspected my vehicle multiple times and could not find any reason for this noise. Today 07/08/2010 two years after I first notice this problem the noise is much louder. I still cant find any reason for this noise. It seems like Nissan dealers dont have clear answer which part causes this noise. Please take all this into consideration and investigate further this issue. Please note there has not been accident with this vehicle yet because of the written above. To fill this complaint I'm putting today's date.

The front left driver's side of my 2008 Nissan Versa hatchback started to thud/thump when turning to the right at low speed. Now the vehicle cannot not turn right quickly, thus I could not avoid an accident in an emergency situation. I have taken to dealer and they cannot reproduce the symptoms, but I encounter daily.

On or about March 26th 2009 I reported a complaint to the local Nissan service department about a clunking and knocking noise in the front end of the car and felt in the steering wheel, the vehicle had less than 32,000 miles at the time. This was not my first attempt to get this issue looked at, but it was the first time they acknowledged a problem. After at least 6 trips to the service department for repair attempts, struts, strut mounts, strut bearings on the left and right side, the problem would not go away. They eventually placed large metal washers between the sub frame and cross brace support because they stated that the sub frame bushings had sagged, or where improperly installed at the manufacturer. Now the steering feels loose and the only way I can describe it is it feels as if the steering column is separating when taking turns over uneven road surfaces.
Noisey worn front strut bushings.
