Bought this car used from a dealership with 126,xxx on it, and I have driven at least 900km since. It is a lot of km's for a 4-year old car, but I heard Nissan's will last forever it taken care of.
I have no real complaints about the car. The engine makes a strange ticking noise whenever it's accelerating, but I'm assuming it's the timing chain..Unless this is a problem. Good on fuel, get around 370km to a tank, I got 310 on my old VW Golf.
The only complaints I really have is that there are rust spots on the hood of the car. The look like they are from bugs. I plan on removing the spots in the summer. Also, the check engine has come on and dealership keeps saying it's the gas cap.
AUX On the stereo
Low road noise
Great on gas for mixed driving
Better Stereo Sound
Seats could be smaller and more adjustable, I'm only 4'11" and I have to keep a pillow on the seat to be able to see well.
Maybe it isn't the prettiest, or the most feature rich, but nissan has made a car that has everything I need, and nothing I don't. It's fun to drive, gets good gas milage, has an auxilery port that is conveniently located so I can have my electronics in the stash box, has tons of room (a bigger back seat than my dad's jaguar), and has been essentially maintaince free the last six months. All in all, for the price I paid, I can't complain (even with only 37 k miles)
I bought this car used. It has 40k miles on it but feels and looks new (kudos to previous owner). This car is a huge step up from my former SUV which as we all know was clumsy and a gas hog. This car is like a toy for me. It zips when I need it to and stops when I need it to. Corners like a champ and is full of features. Excellent car for the price.
CVT transmission. You can feel how much more efficient it is throughout the whole powerband. Comfortable front seats and the handling is decent.
It can get up and go when you ask it.
Quieter fuel injectors.
Rear disc brakes would be nice.
I bought my 2010 Versa SL Hatchback new in 2010. Options included the premium package and floor mats. The mileage rating on the window sticker indicated 28 city and 34 highway. In several 500 plus mile trips on interstate highways through the mountains of PA it did indeed get 34 mpg's, no more, no less. In city driving it has gotten close to 28 mpg's, sometime a little more, sometimes less. I have discovered that running the a/c or the defroster has a negative effect on gas mileage to the tune of 4 or 5 less miles per gallon in city driving. Very reliable, no issues.
The SL model includes a much nicer interior, stereo, alloy wheels, fog lights, ground effects and most importantly, a continuously variable automatic transmission which improves gas mileage.
The premium package gives you 16" alloy wheels, a better stereo with steering wheel controls, a leather wrapped steering wheel, blue tooth connectivity, and a few other items.
My favorite feature, however, was how deeply Nissan discounted it.
Nearly $4,000 off of the window sticker closed the deal for me.
The front valance is a little too low; you need to be extra careful how you approach some driveways and parking situations.
I wish the rear seats would fold down flat as in the Honda Fit.
I have been driving my Versa for a few months now. It's been a great car! Small, but incredibly roomy. It definitely feels like a much larger car that it actually is. Right now I'm getting around 29 mpg (mixed driving). I wish that was better...I'm hoping gas mileage improves as it gets more broken in. I wish it had a little more power as well - but it's not really meant to be powerful! Overall, comfortable and affordable car.
