2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

My 2002 Ford Focus s/w literally broke down on a Saturday. After getting it running, I drove 27 miles north to look at the little car at the dealership. Have never owned a new car but this one was worth waiting for! Love: the ride, pickup, gas economy (32 mpg best). Only negative: poor lighting. I will love driving this car for years to come.


Favorite Features

overall style of body,comfortable ride, strong engine


Suggested Improvements

Get better lighting up closer to windshield, lighted ignition would be nice

2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

This is my 1st brand "NEW" car. I did my research and found this to be the car for me! One thing that I love about this car is the comfort; from the front seats to the back! With the high price of gas, it doesn't hurt my pocket as much!


Favorite Features

I love everything about the Versa!

2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I have 3 teenage drivers and this car is perfect for them, and me too. I also like the fact that it is a humble car. No flash, no fuss. Those of us who bought them know we would have spent a lot more on the Corolla, Civic, Fit, etc and had a lot less interior room.


Favorite Features

Interior seating space and leg room. Outstanding manual stick is very smooth. Mileage is very good. Very nice riding car. Trunk fits multiple golf bags, 3 teenagers. Love the lack of real power but it is peppy, sits up high for great visibility.


Suggested Improvements

Armrest should be standard in front

Review

Test drove the CVT, my 6 speed is much more responsive and quiet. Fuel economy is great at 32 city-35 hwy. Drove a lot in Denver recently- consistent 32 mpg. Very happy with the options chosen with the S (cruise, power package), and equally happy with the price. Test drove Corolla and Civic. The Versa and the options I wanted would have cost me much more in the other (more well known) models. Insurance is also cheaper! The Versa is much more comfortable and fun to drive. Wish there was an arm rest... small price to pay. A lot of space in such a small sedan. Handles well on ice and snow. Great car!


Favorite Features

Fuel economy, cruise controls on steering wheel, pricing, comfort, space.


Suggested Improvements

Would have liked the rear seat to fold down like those in the hatchback version. Also, a center arm rest, lighted cruise control buttons, and a driver side vanity mirror. Still some bugs to be worked out of the tire pressure sensors (cold affects them).

Review

The Versa S sedan, manual trans, with the Power Package is more than enough car for our family of young drivers. The car shifts smoothly, rides nice for a small car, and has much more interior leg room in the back seat than many mid size cars. The trunk space is surprisingly large too. The dash has a nice look. I believe this vehicle will gain a lot of sales momentum as it priced so competitively and has so much to offer.


Favorite Features

My car has no fancy features. Cruise control is nice.


Suggested Improvements

A driver's side arm rest would be nice.
