2009 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
The car is comfortable, peppy, and quiet. Fun to drive. Very easy to clutch and shift. The back seat is very roomy, more than you would expect. The pros rate it as just a blah, so-so car. But they always compare it to another one that is 2-4 thousand more. It seems they do not have to listen to their bank account telling them a little compromise is OK. About the only thing you have to get used to is that on the highway, doing 65-70 mph, even in 6th gear, the engine RPM are about 3K, so you always think you still have to upshift.
The roomy cab and comfortable seats are awesome. The car is quiet.
For a couple bucks, they could put an aux input jack on the sound system. The car is targeted to young people, who all have iPods, or commuters like me who have a lot of time to kill everyday.
