Choosing 2011 Nissan Versa Tires

Beyond the correct tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Nissan Versa tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. When thinking about your driving conditions, consider where you live (mountains vs. city vs. countryside) and the kind of weather can catch you off-guard. (Watch out Tornado Alley!) Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. Other drivers buy one set of all-season tires instead. That way they don't have to return to the tire shop and their vehicle is always ready for sun, rain, and light snow!

Driving style is next on the list to think about when buying tires. If you're an avid off-roader who yearns to pioneer new paths, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't hit the hills very often. Browse Nissan Versa tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you.

2011 Nissan Versa Tire Questions

  • Why does Nissan tire inflation matter? Even a tiny decrease in tire pressure could impact your safety and fuel economy. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan.
  • Why are there numbers on the side of my Nissan Versa tires? Your tire sidewall numbers tell you the recommended load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to a tire technician to learn how to read Nissan tire numbers.
  • Is there an easy way to check Nissan tire tread depth? Stay on top of your tire tread depth to help avoid a dangerous drive. You can check tread depth with a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Nissan Versa tires. Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Nissan Versa tires.

  • How long can I expect my Versa brake pads to last? In general, brake pads can last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving on highways mostly and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan.
  • Can brake fluid leak when my Versa is off? Because your Versa brake system is a closed hydraulic system, it should not leak brake fluid. However, if components in your brake system have worn out or been damaged, it might cause brake fluid to leak.

2011 Nissan Versa Drivetrain Repairs

These could all be signs of drivetrain damage you don't want to ignore. Take action quickly to catch repairs or replacements before something more severe happens.
  • What triggers the malfunction indicator light (MIL) in a Versa? Engine problems, transmission problems, faulty sensors, electrical issues, misfire issues, and connector problems could all cause your Versa’s malfunction warning light, or better known as the check engine light, to illuminate.
  • How serious is a drivetrain malfunction in my Versa? If you experience a drivetrain malfunction in your Versa, it is important to have it inspected by a professional mechanic as soon as possible to identify the underlying cause and perform the necessary repairs. Driving with a malfunctioning drivetrain can be dangerous and cause further damage to your car.

Wheel Alignment for 2011 Nissan Versa

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Nissan Versa's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Nissan intended. When you bring in your 2011 Nissan Versa, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Nissan.

Questions About Nissan Versa Alignment

  • What can knock my Nissan Versa out of alignment? Potholes and uneven roads can knock your car out of alignment, so stay aware of the road ahead and adjust your speed (or avoid these obstacles whenever it’s safely possible).
  • How frequently should you get a wheel alignment for your Versa? It’s usually suggested you check your alignment about every 6,000 miles or 6 months (whichever occurs first). Still, you should reference your Versa owner’s manual for Nissan's recommended interval.
  • Do you need to get your Versa wheels aligned when you get new tires? It’s likely not a requirement to get an alignment when you install new tires on your Versa, but it's a smart idea to do so anyway. An alignment can help ensure even tire wear, smooth handling, and better fuel efficiency.

Questions About 2011 Nissan Versa Engines

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my Versa? It's okay if your check engine light comes on when you first start your vehicle. This is a sign that your vehicle is testing its circuits. The light should go off shortly. Bring your vehicle in if it doesn't.
  • Why does my Nissan engine sound different? Strange engine sounds can be a sign something’s off in your Nissan Versa. Knocking or tapping could be a symptom of low oil. A high-pitched whistle could signal an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing can be traced back to a loose fan belt, and grinding might be a sign of brake problems rather than engine issues.
  • Are you unknowingly damaging your Nissan Versa engine? Certain driving habits can hurt your engine. These habits include driving on an empty fuel tank, revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or slamming the gas pedal while the engine is still cold. Steer clear of these habits to help protect engine performance and efficiency.

Tire Repair for Your 2011 Nissan Versa

If your 2011 Nissan Versa is in need of a tire inspection or possible flat tire repair, Firestone Complete Auto Care has your back. There’s a chance your tire could be plugged and patched (rather than replaced). Our technicians can inspect your tire and let you know if it is safe to repair. We’ll begin by taking a look at where the damage is, the type and extent of the tire damage, and how all of your tires are wearing.

If a repair on your 2011 Nissan Versa tire is feasible and safe, we’ll get to work on the steps to fix it: (1) Remove the tire from the wheel for inspection and repair, (2) fill the puncture to keep the moisture out, and (3) re-seal the inside lining of your tire so that air won’t escape.

Nissan Versa Tire Repair Questions

  • Can I drive my Nissan on a flat tire? Driving on a flat or underinflated tire can put extra stress on your wheels and alignment. While it’s sometimes necessary to drive a short distance on a flat tire to get to a safe place, don’t take any other trips in your Versa until you can have the flat tire repaired or replaced.
  • Will a temporary sealant fix my Nissan's flat tire? Temporary sealants will solve your problem… for a little bit. If you’ve seen temporary or emergency tire sealant before (it usually comes in a can), it can be tempting to turn to this as a solution for your flat tire. Keep in mind that these fixes could buy you some time to get to Firestone Complete Auto Care for a proper repair, but they could also cause some harm in the process (for example, damage to your TPMS). Plus, using a product like this could void your tire warranty.
  • Why do the tires on my Versa keep losing air? Your Versa tires might keep losing air due to a leaking valve stem, puncture or hole in the tire tread or sidewall, or damaged wheel.

Questions About 2011 Nissan Versa Maintenance

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Nissan Versa?  Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Nissan Versa to high mileage oil?  Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Nissan Versa engines.
  • Why are my Nissan dashboard lights on?  Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Nissan Versa in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.

Top Nissan VersaCar Battery Questions

  • Why won't my Nissan Versa battery stay charged?  A car battery that needs to be jump-started every time is as good as dead. It may be getting old. Or, you’ve been leaving the doors slightly open and the dome lights on during the night. Stop in for a free battery check at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care and learn more about your battery's charge.
  • What is the average lifespan of a car battery?  A car battery normally lasts three to five years, but this number can vary based on battery type, your driving habits, and battery maintenance.
  • What is the white, crusty stuff around my Versa’s battery post?  A chemical reaction between battery acid and the air can cause a white, crusty buildup to form on the terminals of your Versa car battery. This buildup — known as corrosion — can impede the flow of electricity and cause a range of issues, from poor performance to premature battery failure.

2011 Nissan Versa Oil Change Service

Nissan recommends having your 2011 Nissan Versa’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. No matter the mileage, your Versa may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Nissan recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2011 Nissan Versa motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Consult Nissan's recommendations to select the right  2011 Versa oil and talk with a teammate to learn more about our oil options: Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ conventional oil, Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® motor oil, Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology, and Shell Rotella® heavy-duty engine oil.

Get professional engine care by making an oil change appointment for your Versa today.

2011 Nissan Versa Oil Change Questions

  • Why is my Nissan Versa oil light illuminated?  Your Nissan Versa oil change reminder light might illuminate if it’s been too long since your last oil change. On the other hand, the oil pressure light might illuminate due to a clogged oil filter, a faulty oil pressure sensor, low engine oil levels, or a malfunctioning oil pump.
  • Can I change my Nissan Versa oil at home?  First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also helps your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Nissan Versa spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke?  You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.

The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Versa: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

Questions About 2011 Nissan Versa Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Nissan Versa spark plugs be replaced? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Nissan Versa? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Nissan Versa. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • How frequently do the fuel injectors in my Nissan Versa need to be cleaned? The frequency at which car fuel injectors should be cleaned can vary depending on several factors, including the type of fuel used and the driving conditions. Some manufacturers generally recommend a fuel system cleaning as part of your general car maintenance, or as needed based on symptoms of poor fuel system performance.

2011 Versa Nissan Steering & Suspension Services

During the first few years you had your 2011 Nissan Versa, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Maybe your Versa jolts, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2011 Nissan Versa, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Versa suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work.

Questions About 2011 Nissan Versa Steering & Suspension

  • What can cause my Nissan Versa to have a bouncy ride? Damaged struts or shocks can't dampen road bumps properly, causing your vehicle to feel like a trampoline after each dip or bump.
  • Why does my Versa front end dip forward when I brake?  The forward dip in the front end of your Versa when you brake is caused by the weight and momentum transferring to the front wheels. If your suspension system is in bad shape, it can fail to distribute this force, leading your front end to dip further downward.
  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Nissan's suspension?  Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.

Convenient & Local 2011 Nissan Versa A/C Service

Our technicians will work to solve your 2011 Nissan Versa A/C problems to the best of their ability. During an A/C performance check, we'll determine the condition of your 2011 Nissan Versa A/C system to see if repair work is required. This check will include an examination of system pressure, a visual inspection, and a leak test.

While your 2011 Nissan Versa’s air conditioner is being serviced, we’ll also do an A/C evacuation and recharge. During this process, a technician will remove the old refrigerant from the A/C system. Then, they’ll use Nissan’s specifications to evacuate the system. The A/C system is recharged with new refrigerant.

2011 Nissan Versa A/C System FAQs

  • What’s making my Versa A/C put out warm air? If your car’s air conditioning isn’t blowing cold air at all (or it tries, then turns warm), you could have a clogged expansion valve, a faulty compressor clutch, a leak, or a malfunctioning fuse in the system.
  • What can cause an A/C system leak? To put it simply, age and moisture are some of the main causes of leaks in your A/C. Over time, rubber gaskets and seals can wear out, which pushes much-needed refrigerant out of your Versa’s A/C system — and lets outside moisture get in, which can take a toll on internal A/C components.
  • Why does my vehicle have to be moving for my Versa’s A/C to work? There could be issues with one or more components in the air conditioning or electrical system. Your Versa may have a faulty cooling fan or low refrigerant.

2011 Nissan Versa Transmission Service & Repairs

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Versa’s performance. 2011 Nissan Versa transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Nissan Versa transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Versa at all. Our technicians are trained to service 2011  Nissan Versa transmission systems according to vehicle manufacturer recommendations. As soon as you suspect something’s wrong with your Versa’s transmission, book an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to help keep your engine running at peak performance.

2011 Nissan Versa Transmission Questions & Answers

  • When should I have my Versa's transmission fluid checked or exchanged?  Maintaining your Nissan Versa transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Nissan. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can Nissan Versa transmission fluid leak? Yes, your Nissan Versa can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Versa ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.
  • Can I still drive my Nissan Versa if it has a transmission fluid leak?  Driving your Versa with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
