I just got back from a 1700 mile winter road trip through Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon. My Versa started without a single problem in -26 weather. Out performed a 4Runner in the snow and only had to put chains on because the state troopers made everyone! Transmission was seamless and enabled me to get out of deep snow without spinning out of control. Even with the low profile, it still went through deep snow easily.
Huge trunk! Fit two large backpacking backpacks, X-mas gifts for 10, snow gear, two adults and a 75 pound lab/boxer with room to spare!
Air conditioner compressor is very loud. Brake light 'something or other' went out a year ago, and the car would not run. Took the dealership a week to get the part. Other than that, awesome car for the $$. Have told many others about it.
