My only complaint is the interior noise, the road noise and the comfort of the ride is poor. The dash is rattles and sqeeks. We can feel every little break in the roads. We are on our third set of tires and the ride is a little better and so is the road noise with the new tires. For what we paid, we feel we got good transportation at a ver reasonable price. If your buying a used one, be sure the air bags have been replaced, they are on the recall list.
This is a great basic, 1st car. It is a cute vehicle for a teen who needs transportation and will eventually want something more. It runs great, gets great mileage and has lots of visibility. It is a basic car - no power door locks, no power windows. It does have power steering, AC, a CD player and an Aux port, so your teen will be able to hook up their phone music. It is a great starter car, and I look forward to eventually buying a more luxury version.
Bought this car used from a dealership with 126,xxx on it, and I have driven at least 900km since. It is a lot of km's for a 4-year old car, but I heard Nissan's will last forever it taken care of.
I have no real complaints about the car. The engine makes a strange ticking noise whenever it's accelerating, but I'm assuming it's the timing chain..Unless this is a problem. Good on fuel, get around 370km to a tank, I got 310 on my old VW Golf.
The only complaints I really have is that there are rust spots on the hood of the car. The look like they are from bugs. I plan on removing the spots in the summer. Also, the check engine has come on and dealership keeps saying it's the gas cap.
AUX On the stereo
Low road noise
Great on gas for mixed driving
Better Stereo Sound
Seats could be smaller and more adjustable, I'm only 4'11" and I have to keep a pillow on the seat to be able to see well.
Maybe it isn't the prettiest, or the most feature rich, but nissan has made a car that has everything I need, and nothing I don't. It's fun to drive, gets good gas milage, has an auxilery port that is conveniently located so I can have my electronics in the stash box, has tons of room (a bigger back seat than my dad's jaguar), and has been essentially maintaince free the last six months. All in all, for the price I paid, I can't complain (even with only 37 k miles)
