2008 Nissan Versa 4dr Hatch

122-horsepower 1.8L I4 6-speed manual FWD

Nissan Versa in Vermont, United States
Sep 2007 - Sep 2014
1000 mi   I didn't think the car was heating well (took too long to get to desirable heat/ desirable heat wasn't warm enough--my comparisons are to my '94 Subaru Legacy Wagon). Nissan measured engine output for heat and cabin heat, but proved nothing wrong. 
4000   Difficulty turning over during start up. Was told problem with pressure gauge and it reading wrong pressure and therefore cannot start up easily. Common problem with 07/08 Versa apparently. Part(s) ordered, still waiting (almost a month now...) 
8000   Car had difficulty starting up again, after it had it's fuel pressure sensor replaced. Brought it in only to be told they'd have to order a new fuel pump, so now needed to wait and return when part in. Difficulty with car turning over when trying to start up. 5-10 sec. lag/engine strain sound, and then eventual start up. 
19000 US $50 Floor heat not working. Radio intermittently cuts out. Told could not replicate problems, and that the Versa doesn't have powerful floor heating. 
29000   Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) light blinks then stays on. Tires reset, things ok, then light comes back. Told batteries in tires TPMS are dead and whole units need to be replaced at $150 each, must get all, necessary for inspection 
31000   Muffler separated from exhaust pipe at flange. Rusted? Quoted at Midas flange repair $290 or could cut out, put pipe in gap and weld all together for $150. Inquiring/comparing elsewhere now, also seeing what parts go for online. 
31300   Pipe leading to muffler separated from the exhaust at the flange due to rusting. Midas cut out problem area and welded on new pipe (could have had new flange and more "proper" fix, but would have cost double).
