Pretty much what we wanted.

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


We went looking for a small, reliable car with a/c with a strong preference for a hatchback. We focused on the usual suspects - Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris, Scion whatever, Toyota Matrix/Pontiac Vibe. Then we saw the Versa at a Hertz sales lot, liked it, researched it and could buy it for $3,000 under KBB. Negatives are rear visibility and stability in cross winds. A big positive is roominess whether carrying four people or two people and two bicycles - they fit in all the way without having to take off a wheel. When we bought we would have preferred a Matrix if the money was close to the same. That would have been a mistake.

Best Features

Quietness compared to the competition. I am hearing impaired and could not converse in our old Civic. In this I can. CVT once we got used to lack of growl. Room, room, room, room.

Worst Features

Rear visibility. There is really no excuse for it. Make it easier to turn off the wipers.
