1000 0 I had problems starting the car about 3 weeks after I got it. Fuel pump was replaced and it starts on the first try now, as it should. The cord detached from the gas door when I opened it to pump gas one day. The cord was replaced and it has been fine so far.

2000 0 Replace the fuel pressure regulator. Known problem with Versas. Heat shield on exhaust manifold was only spot-welded in 3 spots, so it rattles a lot. Known problem, can't be fixed. Brakes squeal loudly occasionally, particularly when it's cold outside. Known problem, told it couldn't be fixed. 
11000 0 Squeak problem remained, got worse and worse. Went to dealership, told there was a TSB on the problem. Tech verified problem. TPMS light came on, tech checked tires for leaks and found nothing. Light reset, all normal. 
16000 0 Brakes squeaking horribly again, replaced pads previously, didn't solve problem. Greased back plates, problem gone (I hope).
