The day after mine was paid off, and right after receiving a letter from Nissan Canada saying that she was fully paid for, my CEL came on. In the 5 years of ownership it had never once come on, yet since paying her off it's come on twice.

Also my car started getting really really loud too over the past few months. Turns out an exhaust flange had rusted completely. Nissan wanted over $120 to fix it (according to them it's a common problem in Versa's). Took it to an exhaust shop, and it's running as quiet as she was on day 1.

I guess I can't complain too much, as this was my first 'out of pocket' expense. Everything else that has gone wrong has been covered by my extened warranty ... unfortunately exhaust components are not covered.

It's also time for a new battery for mine ...

do you know which flange it is?

Hope your car, and mine, give us great reliability. Our cars aren't new anymore by any means. I feel like I just bought it not too long ago LOL.
It was the one closest to the muffler.

I feel the same way ... I can't believe I have had this car for over 5 years now ... she doesn't look her age but she doesn't feel new anymore. I too hope they last quite a bit longer. I really like having no car payments!

Rust can happen quickly, all Depends on where you live ... I rustproof my car but they can't coat the exhaust components as it would just burn the oil right off. I'm still using the factory battery too (now 63 mths old).

I just hit 89,000 kms yesterday (about 50,000 miles). Not bad for her age :)

If trade in value didn't suck on the car it would have been gone a while ago ... but having no car payment is an awesome feeling.
