2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 SL 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
I had driven a 2002 BMW 5-series for about 2 years prior to purchasing the Nissan Versa. Taking a new job 25 miles away- I couldn't afford premium gas at 20 mpg anymore. I reluctantly started looking at "bubble cars." The Versa had reviewed well, so I gave it a shot. I have had this vehicle for about 6 months now, and I am so happy with every aspect of it. I am constantly amazed with how comfortable, well built, and roomy it is. You'd be surprised what you can fit into that little bugger! I drive about 50 miles a day in commute, and I love everything about the car. Good gas mileage and seemingly engineered for me! Golf clubs fit well in the back- cargo area is big enough to fit everything.
With the base model starting so cheap, you can get an SL +all options for under $20,000. I love the sunroof/moon-roof and the satellite radio. Every person who rides in the back says how roomy it is. Far and away my favorites are the "keyless" ignition and bluetooth speaker phone, I use it everyday.
