When driving down the expressway I went over a bump in the road and the driver's side rear coil spring broke. Approximately the first 1/2 to 3/4 of a rotation of the bottom part of the coil spring broke off and was sitting loose in the coil spring pocket on the rear axle. This failure appears to be the exact same as the passengers front coil spring when it failed back in approx. June 2015 which I already report (reference # 10726251). I have saved all of the old springs (broken and non broken) when I made the repairs with new part sets that I purchased from Nissan dealer in grand blanc, mi.

Pulling out of parking lot after work and heard a loud clunk from front of car. Right side of care was sitting lower then left side, mechanic said spring broke. Same thing happened 2 weeks ago to other side of car and had that front spring and strut replaced and car aligned. If this is happening frequently, why no recall. Will have the rear coil springs checked when I get the car inspected but after these 2 repair bills and of course my warrantly had run out and I did not extend. Who would think that a care I bought new, well maintained and with only 22000 miles would have this happen.
2009 Nissan Versa. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle coil springs fracture issues. The consumer stated while driving, she hit a small pothole and heard a loud bang. The consumer and her husband thought it was a flat tire, but after pulling over, they did not see anything. They continued to drive, but then they heard another strange noise and smelled burning rubber. By the time the consumer pulled into the driveway, the tire on the front passenger side was burning. The vehicle was towed to a repair shop. The consumer was informed both front springs were broken on the right side. The consumer stated a couple of years ago, the left rear spring was replaced. Also, the muffler was replaced twice.
Thankfully I have not had an accident yet. However I am very concerned that both front coil springs are missing a chunk from the spring. This was discovered when I had my car in the shop for another issue on 6. 12. 15. I was informed at this time that with the chunks missing this could cause major issues if either of them pop out of their base. I had my car in for an oil change (at a neighbor's who is a mechanic) yesterday, 9. 14. 15. I informed him of what his referral guy said to me back in June, and after looking at my car he showed me exactly what the guy was talking about. He told me this was concerning, seeing as my car only has 77,000 miles on it. My rear suspension is acting up too, which may or may not be associated with this. I went to this site & noticed ironically that the front coil spring issues are under investigation at this point. I am trying to make a complaint considering I have one of these cars, which in my mind is no longer safe to drive. I fear, as others have had happen on here, that an accident may occur, with injuries to myself, anyone else in the car with me, or other passengers on the road. I am trying to be proactive on this, & am hoping something will be done to prevent any type of accident to occur again. Nissan should take responsibility for this & fix these immediately at their cost. They should've never put faulty parts on their cars to begin with. These are people's lives possibly at risk.
