2009 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
My '09 Versa 1.8S HB (6-speed stick) is almost a year old and I am quite happy with it. I've had oil changes and the whole car checked over every 3750 miles per Nissan's advice. MPG isn't what I'd hoped (my former car, a Dodge Neon with a larger engine and an automatic got 30 mpg), I am getting mid-twenties in town and low thirties on the highway. Which isn't bad anyway, right? I put new custom rims on (black), other than that the car is stock. I am waiting on a part from Nissan to fix the plastic shroud around the battery which inexplicably tore loose somehow. I have had no mechanical issues such as some of those reported here. Once the tach hits 3000 rpm watch out, the car takes off!
6-speed stick, A/C, rear wiper, battery-saver, electric p/s, cruise control, power windows and locks, fluids easy to check. Nissan dealership and service is great, so far.
A center-console compartment would be nice. DRL also. Otherwise, car is perfect!
