2009 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
My Wife and I bought a Nissan as our first car in 1983. It was a Stanza and was a horrible car. We never considered Nissan again until I found this Nissan Versa. I wanted a fun car for errands and commuting and the Fit and Yaris were too small. We looked at used cars but found that a new 2009 Versa was actually a better deal than a used car. I love the way it rides, it holds my carpoolers well, the standard radio/CD player is great, it is peppy and holds plenty of groceries in the hatch. While in this car I am 57 years young, taking me back to my college days. My Wife wanted black and frankly speaking it looks as expensive as an Audi or similar small expensive car.
I love the hatchback and the deep glove compartment.
I really need something additional to hold stuff between the seats. I really did not need 4 cup holders (5 if you include the one on the door).
