My 16 versa just started this weird thing where when it's cold (below 32) and the car is started, it idles up to about 1800 rpm then drops like it's going to stall. Then it corrects itself. After it warms up the idle goes up to 750 down the 700 then back over and over, feels like a small shudder. Car only has 12k miles. Any one else experience this or know if it's normal? Driving is ok and haven't seen any issues there.

Wow, thats unusual. My 16 S Sedan starts off at almost 3 grand when its below freezing then slowly idles down to the point you cant hear or feel it at a stop light. Since its soo young maybe its still under the 3 year 36 thousand mile warranty at the dealer?

Take it in to the Nissan dealer. You should be covered with a 2016 and only 12 thou miles. They may have to keep it overnight so they can start it cold and see the problem.

I really hope you are still active Because I have the same issue, no check engine light but it does it every couple of days. Any luck?

Makes sense since the etc is the main input that controls the air/fuel mixture on start up. I've never seen one of these fail, so it be cautious of just popping one in there. Could be a bulletin for a software update or wire issue too.

Yes... The dealership made me bring my '16 Versa in for a software update (something regarding temperature). They didn't charge me and it was done in a few minutes.
