I haven't found a single realistic review. Im going to try to give you one with this horribly short space. The cost, for what it is is good. It's one of the cheapest new cars you can own, great gas mileage and Nissan makes good quality cars.
When actually driving. You have large blind spots. Looking out the windows including rear is very difficult due to the design of the seats specifically, along with the shape and size of the windows themselves. This is a safety hazard. Merging into traffic especially the highway, or anywhere will need you to be defensive and deliberate. Very touchy turning. If you are distracted for a few seconds you could easily go into another lane by accident.
The features are pretty basic. Mine originally came with alloy wheels but I told them to get rid of them. It lowers the cost of the car. They are not needed, it's more a luxury. Power windows, locks. The back doors can only be opened with the remote or from the inside. The Stereo is, like about every stock car, crap. Taking it out and putting in one, seems, like it wont be straight forward. I haven't tried it yet though. The car is only spacious in the back. The front is absolutely not designed for large/bigger ppl. (Im not even a big guy) This effects driving.
The large blind spots and severe inability to properly look out of your windows creates a safety hazard, when merging with any traffic, and especially when going on the highway/ passing. I plan on cutting the heads off the top of my seats. It is not until you take this car on the highway and realistically drive it that you will notice this... I understand that some people drive with only their mirrors, so this can be a personal preference thing, but driving with mirrors only is an accident waiting to happen. Needs more play when turning. No one should be texting and driving, but if you do, It will only be a matter of time before you hit something due to it's touchyness.
