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


Purchased this Nissan Versa in April, 2008 as a commuter vehicle. I have a 64 mile round trip daily commute. I have had the Versa back four time to the dealership. Once for highway mileage that is only 27 mpg. The other three times have been for roof or door leaks. All have been part of warranty coverage, with free loaners to use during work. My floors are slopping wet and have been wet more than half of the eight months I have owned the vehicle. The last time I noticed wetness was after a free car wash that my dealership offers with each oil change. Living in Maine, a wet vehicle means frozen interiors to your windows each morning. Wish I had not purchased this vehicle.

Best Features

Interior: roomy with great views from all seats. Cool exterior design.

Worst Features

Mileage and the leaking issue. Mileage was advertised at 30/34. I don't get 30 on a lightly traveled four lane highway. I've tried driving 55 and was told to pick the speed up by the service department. Driving 65 is no better. I average 27 mpg.
