2014 Nissan Versa Note 1.6 SV 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl CVT)


Review

When one thing breaks, it all starts to break. My transmission failed at roughly 78,000 miles. I've been told by numerous mechanics that the transmission on the car is horrendous. If its Used, got 50k+ mileage and has its original transmission, DO NOT BUY IT. As soon as my transmission was fixed, the arms on my shocks broke. Then my gas tank went bad. All within 3 months, so just be aware. In spite of all that, everything before this point has been awesome. The acceleration leaves something to be desired (don't take it up in the mountains or anything) but if you're just commuting locally, its great. The turning is good and has plenty of room for the type of car it is.

2014 Nissan Versa Note 1.6 S Plus 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Motor burns oil and CVT Transmission is No Good!!! It went out before I finished paying for the car. It will cost me around $4,000 for a new one with installation. Not worth the money!

2014 Nissan Versa Note 1.6 S Plus 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl CVT)


Review

My review is based upon owning a Nissan Versa hatchback for two years followed by my purchasing a 2014 Nissan Versa Note as a new car. Although, the engine is only 1.6 liters, it is peppy. The cost of repairs for 130,000 miles that I have driven it is minimal. So far I have had to purchase a set of four tires at 57,000 miles as well as two front tires at 125,000 miles. So far I have had one brake job (front wheels with rotors) in addition to three new wipers and of course the regular oil and oil filter changes. The windshield cracked following a stone hit on the highway but all in all my costs have been relatively cheap. The only concerns that I have had are the following: The front wheel hub bearings usually need to be replaced at around 55-60K miles. At the time of my first bearing replacement they were covered under warranty, although I will state that Nissan America had to get involved since my dealer stated there was no problem. Although my personal mechanic insisted that both bearings were in need of repair. I have to give major kudos to Nissan America for standing behind their product but must state that I would never recommend this dealer in Northern New Jersey to fix my bicycle let alone my car. Now I am coming up to my second set of front wheel bearings in need of replacement. I hope that these items can be purchased in the secondary parts market instead of them being a dealer only item. The transmission on this car is peppy overall although I would state only average due to reading Nissan owners posts stating the sluggishness, at times, was later accompanied by a transmission repair. The interior has two deficiencies, there is a blindspot located in the extreme rear right and left of the vehicle just near the end of the last rear glass window panels before the hatchback. Finally, I live in New Jersey and in the recent years our winters have had extreme wind chills. The front window defroster needs to be in air conditioning mode with the dial set to the highest temperature setting to keep the glass free of frost/condensation buildup on the front windshield.

Review

So far - less than a month out -- it's a great little car! Comfortable, easy to maneuver and 'peppy.' Also feels substantial -- not like a kiddie car. The color is awesome; I've never gotten to many compliments about a car color -- people smile when they see it ... and so do I.

Front end and brakes are very noisy. Very poor on bumpy roads. Very rough ride.
