hoping for better the second time

2008 Nissan Versa 1.8 SL 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl CVT)


I did my research, and discounted the Fit, Yaris etc in favour of the Versa bc of horsepower, room and the Nissan reputation. It exceeded all my expectations at first - fun to drive, reliable, good fuel economy, easy to handle. Then winter hit. In cold, wet weather, I would come out to the car and find ice all over the dash, controls and inside of the windows and windshields. The controls wouldn't work and the doors wouldn't shut. Warming it up - no change. Getting it fixed at the dealer proved extremely problematic ie. didn't happen - cost to me to fix was quoted at $5-10K. I just traded it in for a 2009 model - hoping for better this time around. It'll likely be my last Nissan too.

Best Features

Big on the inside, small on the outside; great fuel economy, easy to handle.

Worst Features

It shouldn't be the customer's issue to have to fix something like I had - it shouldn't happen at all.
