2007 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
It is very well made, economical vehicle. However, if you are used to doing your own basic maintenance, like replacing rear stop lights or topping off brake fluid, it is a nightmare. Nissan does not supply an instruction manual on how to replace a tail light, and they are so deeply recessed into the plastic that it is very difficult to get at. Same for brake fluid. Nissan's solution? Bring it in for a very expensive light bulb change. Same for brake fluid. These kind of items should easily be driver replaceable items. They are not, and I am NOT happy about this.
Handling, mileage, comfort.
All lights, brake, headlight, interiors should be driver replaceable, to avoid the heavy $$$ penalties of dealer expense.
