2009 Nissan Versa 1.6 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 4A)
Roomy-ness and comfortable interior in small car for tall people describes the overall driving experience. The quality of Nissan is much improved than I remembered. I feel the effects of the merger with Renault. There is a blend of European design cues mixed with Asian. Front seats are high of the floor like in a Jetta. You comfortably sit with your knees bent, not straight like in a sports car. At 6'3" I find plenty of head room. Did not come with a stock radio for $1k more. Install a way better one, for not even half.
Gas tank cap on the passenger side makes waiting for a gas station pump easier now because most cars have gas caps on the driver side.
Made in Mexico, better monitor the quality. Had a badly installed wire from the factory removed and refitted because it shorted the O2 sensor. Gas mileage seem to have dropped after the first tank even with fwy and ease on the gas peddle driving. Key fob on passenger side needed.
