Retiree and a Versa
By Jim Frederick on
2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I bought this car primarily for my 125 mile round-trip commute to my part-time retirement job. It also serves as our second vehicle so interior space is a real plus. A lot of quality car for a reasonable price. Now have 6,000 miles on it, mostly highway and getting anywhere from 31 to 37 mpg (depending upon speed and a/c use). The only issue so far with the car is a slight pull to the left at highway speeds but dealer is working with me on that. I would really like that fixed. Four speed auto does well overall. I wonder if I would have liked the CVT?
Interior room. Hatchback's usable cargo space. Strong A/C. Fuel economy. Very fair price for a small car. Cruise control. Power windows and locks.
Center arm rest that is high enough and far enough forward to rest right arm while driving. Standard ABS.
