Liked the 2007 so much I bought a 2008!

2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 SL 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl CVT)


What I missed on the 07, I added on the 08---ABS, Bluetooth, Steering wheel audio controls, and other goodies. At 33,000, I have had absolutely no problem of any kind with the vehicle. I'm 6 foot 6 inches tall, and fit fine in the car even with a 36 inch inseam. Most of my combined city/highway driving averages 32 mpg, and running 60 on the highways a consistent 36. At 70 mileage drops to 30. A wonderful surprise was the extension to 10 year/12000 miles on the CVT tranny. Bluetooth is perfect for handsfree, and handling is responsive w/electric assist. Great 'off the line' acceleration. Biggest beef is fairly poor stopping ability on ice/snow. The Continentals will be replaced.

Favorite Features

Fuel economy, dealer/service, bluetooth, handling, head/legroom, seating and height adjustment, CVT, warranty extension, build quality, ABS, great visibility with few blind spots,center arm rests in front AND rear, BIG trunk for a small car, tremendous seats for big people, great acceleration

Suggested Improvements

Even premium sound system is so-so, straight axle in rear results in wheel hop over tar strips, find a way to make those back seats fold flat, how about a full sized spare rather than a doughnut, noisy engine above 3000 rpm, better tires for winter traction, standard ABS instead of option, rear discs
