Yes, I'ld rather drive a Buick

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


Yes, it gets better mileage than my Rendezvous but you give up a lot. No place to put your right arm. Cup holder too few and in wrong place. CVT very noisy. AC needs a lot of redesign help. Have to run fan at setting 3 or 4-much to noisy. Steering wheel position not comfortable. Visor mirror has no lights. On the plus side doors are nice and wide and lots of headroom make getting in and out east for tall person like me. Rear wiper improves vision greatly. Suburban driving getting 28 mpg-great. Interstate trip with cruise on 65 mph only getting 34 mpg. Buick would get 31 to 31 mpg on trip. All in all would've expected better mpg and miss Buick features including ONSTAR.

Best Features

Low price, vision, easy in and out.

Worst Features

Transmission noise, steering wheel positioning, gas gauge should be four equal quarters, dash light to indicate head lamps on but actually auto on and off would be better, AC performance and noise reduction. Center arm rests. More and better positioned cup holders.
