Perfect for 47,000 then problems

2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 SL 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
Car really performs great in the hills. Fun to drive and good ride for a compact. Gas mileage in hot weather is 34 mpg. No problems at all until 45,000 miles, then the fuel pressure regulator started leaking and resulted in hard starting. Now at 48,000 miles the ABS warning light is on and I have been told the repair could be over $2,000. The ABS option was only a fraction of that. Makes you wonder what may come next. Drove my last 2 LeSabres and Silverado for a total of 275,000miles with no failures.
The CVT transmission, gas mileage and roominess is what sold me on this vehicle. The CVT really is great in the hills.
More reliable components. Could probably use just a little higher gearing to improve gas mileage.
