The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation into 130,000 models year 2008 through 2010 Nissan Versa vehicles after receiving complaints of fractures occurring in the front suspension coil spring, which can lead to tire or brake line damage. NHTSA has initiated a preliminary evaluation saying in a notice that its Office of Defects Investigation has received 93 complaints of front suspension coil spring fracture in the affected Nissan Versas. The agency also said it received one complaint of a crash stemming from the issue.
