2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Traded my old MB station wagon in for this great little car. Used to get 17 mpg on premium, now 30 mpg on regular. Peppy and roomy for city and expressway usage. Well built with no creaks and everything seems to fit well. Easy to get in and out of.
Cheap to buy, well built, roomy, zippy in the city, easy to get in and out of, lots of airbags, and decent gas mileage.
Could use a good center armrest and anti-lock brakes should be standard. Not good for long distance trips, but great for short bursts on the freeway.
