My wife and I were heading towards a Yaris, but by the time we had all the features picked out, the price was to high for our budget. We looked at the Versa and got a lot more car with the needed features. I use this little car for work, and kept my truck for the big stuff like hauling trash and getting gravel. I am disappointed with the highway mpg and steering wheel. Plus, no right arm rest! I hope Nissan has one for 2009, and some form of a retro-fit for my 2008.
Roomy interior, and big trunk space. Love the steering wheel cruise control.
Better gas mileage, more front leg room, a right arm rest, and more steering wheel comfort.
I bought an armrest on ebay. Was quite easy to install and with shipping included I paid $40 or $45. It came from China within 3 weeks. I did have to drill some extra holes and buy some stronger and longer screws for less than $1 because it just was not secure enough with the small screws that came with it.
