OK, A Little Disappointed

2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 SL 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
Review
After copious research I narrowed it down to Honda Fit or Versa, better dealer financing swung it in favor of the Versa. After a month, though, I'm a little hesitant to recommend this little hatchback. Gas mileage has been OK, but not great we've got 21s to 29 depending on how much highway driving we do (this is the CVT model). Driving comfort is the big problem, lumbar support is non-existent, seats are short and no support under thighs. Steering wheel is too far away if you're not ridiculously short. Ride is OK but blows around like a leaf in the wind and doesn't feel well connected to the road (easily drifts). That said, it turned out to be excellent in snow, easy to control and stop.
Favorite Features
Intelligent Key is way cool. Upholstery quality. Quiet as long as you're not accelerating. Very good sized interior, especially the superb back seat. Dash is attractively simple. Controls are simple. Convenience Package is well worth it. Usable cupholders galore. Big, deep glove-box.
Suggested Improvements
Seats need to be much more supportive, hurts my back to drive. Chintzy and oddly placed seat levers. Plastics scratch easily/look cheap. Parking break tends to not snap down all the way. Seats should fold flat with trunk, maybe a fold down door to cover recessed space if wanted. Better handling.
