2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
We've had our Versa for about 7 months and we LOVE it.We looked at all the others, and it was no contest.Classier and more substantial looking than the Fit or Yaris, almost identical in dimensions and capacities to the Vibe/Matrix but costing thousands less, the Versa is great bang for the buck. The fact that it drives and feels nothing like an economy car is icing on the cake.The interior is amazingly roomy and comfortable for a small car and a lot quieter than I expected, almost a Mausoleum compared to my old Neon. Incredible room in the back seat and more than enough cargo space. The Versa's space efficiency is truly amazing.
A/C, power heated break-away mirrors, power windows, massive glove box, a decent if not outstanding stereo, very good 4-speed autobox, remote entry, excellent fuel economy, responsive handling and a roomy, versatile and classy interior.It looks good, too - what more do you need?
Plastic hub caps are cheap looking.I left the winter tires on the OEM wheels and mounted the summers on new alloys which make the car look GREAT.A center armrest/storage bin would be nice and the mirror controls are unlit and badly placed,inboard seat recliners are strange That's about it.
