2009 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
I bought my Versa at the end of September, 2008. I love everything about it. I've had only one problem (a faulty gas cap causing the check engine light to come on) and I have only two things I could complain about. 1) I would like a lock that can be opened with the key on the hatch door, and 2) the heater/defroster seems to take longer to warm up than any other car I've owned. Item 1 could probably be solved by having power locks, but I didn't want them so I have to unlock the driver's door to unlock the hatch. I also disagree with reviews complaining of a lack of performance. I can't keep this car at the speed limit! I have a manual transmission, so that may the difference. Buy one these!
Tight steering radius, comfortable ride, good gas mileage, large and comfortable interior.
Add a lock to the hatch that can be opened with the key for non-power lock models.
