2007 Nissan Versa 1.8 SL 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl CVT)


Review

Purchased the SL CVT in Nov. 2007 and no problems except one wheel leaking air requiring weekly fill up. Tire sensor lets me know when to fill, but dealer cannot find or fix wheel leak. Totally reliable, no other fixes so far. Everything holding up well and no rattles yet. Car is garaged and kept clean in and out. Northwest weather is mild on vehicles. Tried Fit Corolla Civic and Scion but purchased Versa for smooth quiet ride and large passenger space. The Hondas were a better driver's car but too noisy and rougher riding. Mileage has averaged 30.2 to date. Suburban driving: 29mpg, High speed 70+ Hiway = only around 30 mpg. Worst city driving mileage was 26 mpg. Quiet at idle and hiway


Best Features

Blue tooth, SL convenience lighting pkg and console, keyless entry. Easy engress egress with wide opening doors. Quiet and smooth ride. Steering wheel controls for hands free, sound system and cruise control. Very good on snow and ice. Accurate cruise control.


Worst Features

For long trips, a little firmer seat cushion. Need cheaper wiper blades ($42), easier turn in for curvy roads, seems to resist leaving a straight line just a bit before turning (not bad but slightly annoying). Needed to have ABS and traction control more available for the 2007 and 2008s.

2007 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Just sold my 2007 Versa after 39000 miles and 38 months. I am sad to see it go as it was a great car. Inexpensive to buy, great mileage (32 mpg), reliable, and fun. I have never had a car with as good a drivers position and/or visibility. As a fun and well-built people mover, it has no equal; certainly not the Fit or Yaris; it is in a class by itself. It served me well and never complained. Good job Nissan. Thanks Versa.


Best Features

Drivers position and visibility, auto express up and down, huge cabin, quality interior materials for the segment, steering feel, true versa-tility.


Worst Features

None

2007 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Wanted to update my car into this decade before it's too late...Didn't like the Corolla design this time and the Versa just felt right.


Best Features

Loved the look of the interior and the size of the exterior for tight parking.


Worst Features

HUBCAPS! Bought my car on Friday and lost the hubcap on my Monday freeway commute..Never had this problem with Toyota! Also needs better gas mileage. 98 Corolla got better MPGs than a smaller car 9 years newer! Turn signals need to be more prominent as have had problems on freeway with lane changes.

2007 Nissan Versa 1.8 S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Well,bought the car in January 07.Refused to buy the cvt transmission as it was untested. Man am i glad reading the other reviews. Seems these cvt's are junk!Our 5 speed auto runs great. We get 30mpg city summer/winter. Traded a5yr old Xterra which was a great car with bad mileage. The only trouble we have had is in getting the underbody wash at the car wash in the winter.Water got into the fuel tank breather and froze solid. Dealership replaced everything under warranty including the charcoal canister. Don't get the underbody spray anymore! Weird smell when you turn on heater. Taking it back for clunk in front end. Whole front just feels loose. All in all half the price of the Xterra twice the mileage


Best Features

Good mileage, reliable


Worst Features

What do you want for a cheap car. We feel we got what we paid for.

Review

While I haven't reached sticker highest is 35 lowest is 29 in 20K miles with routine service (in NJ with crappy winter gas, traffic & horrible roads). I've had a few trim piece issues but that's it (haven't lost a hub). Bought it to carry lots of stuff (does), get good hwy mpg for my commute (does), comfortable seats (yep), cheap payment (you bet), not breakdown (doesn't). One errant pass airbag rattle that only comes out in winter would be my only nagging complaint, but even that is seasonal. Keep tires @ correct pressure and light won't come on; duh. Easy oil changes for the DIY types like myself. A- from me.


Best Features

Radio/speakers - I upgraded to the SL only CD changer/aux - brilliant. Light years ahead of my '97 Jag system. Seats are WAY comfortable. My commute + old Hyundai led to lower back problem - gone now. Easy fold rear seats.


Worst Features

Sun visor needs to block more than 5% of side window. More cargo room if seats could fold flat into floor a la Fit. Bulb swap should NOT require removal of entire assembly...I mean really? Standard side airbags but no standard armrest? Sheesh-totally worth the $40 aftermarket.
