2013 Nissan Versa 1.6 SL 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I have had two Versa cars. The 1st one a 2007 hatchback model. The 2nd one I still have. It is red and very nice looking with alloy wheels. It may take a few seconds longer to merge into traffic. You just allow a few more seconds. The gas mileage is outstanding at 35 average and 40 mpg on the highway. This car is a 2013. I have had this care for 5 years and haven't had to spend hardly extra money on it. just to change the oil. This is a great little car to drive around town and does very well on the highway too. Why do you want to know my weight, reviewing a car?

2013 Nissan Versa 1.6 S Plus 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl CVT)


Review

At 72 I've driven most car brands since getting my license at 16 -- and this Versa is right at the top for value. Not doing rabbit starts or slamming on the brakes lets me get 40-43 MPG. It is not as luxurious as my old Mercedes -- but adequate and comfortable. I am the original owner and have 68,500 miles on my Versa; and have had zero mechanical problems. I bought a basic maintenance plan (and have a lifetime power-train warranty), but have only changed a set of tires, wiper blades, & front brake pads -- nothing else except fluid(s) and filter(s) changes. The car has all the options except heated seats and navigation. (Google maps is a lot cheaper.) This should be my last car until I'm buried, and that's just perfect for me! UPDATE: 10,000 more miles since my last update and still very happy!

Nissan doesn't stand behind warranty.

2013 Nissan Versa 1.6 S 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Clutch catastrophically failed at 47,000 miles of mostly highway driving. Despite a 60,000 mile power train warranty that was 100% silent on clutch exclusion, Nissan just said "no". They said they couldn't prove it was a defect-maybe I abused it, therefore they refused to cover it. I've been driving vehicles with standard transmissions for 40 years without one ever failing on me, so I know with 100% certainty it is a defect in their vehicle. When I asked their mechanic who did the work on it how long a clutch should last, he said a hydraulic clutch on a vehicle like this should easily last 150,000 miles, but his name wasn't on the dealership sign. When I appealed to the Nissan Regional manager he just said "no" with no explanation other than "he had reviewed it".

Review

The day I received a $3500 estimate to fix my 6 year old Prius was the day I TRADED IN that 6 year old Prius & Got my BRAN NEW Versa ...
Even Up,
No Regrets :)

A year later I now have 45,000 miles on my Versa. Ive delivered pizza with it in the ice & snow storms of Northern Wisconsin to the heat indexes & humidity of South Mississippi. I get 36mpg Delivering in town with the air ON and 44mpg on freeways.

I only use a full synthetic 0w-20 motor oil and keep the car serviced. Ive Driven this car Long, & Very, Very, Hard - and it has never faltered me or slowed me down.
It never ceases to Amaze me how much power and room I can have under 15 Grand all-the-while averaging 40 mpg.


Best Features

Lots of Power for 40 mpg. & Great Engine Sound. Lots of ROOM for a small car. Easy to Get in and Out of for Big People. Simple Gauges. Smooth Ride. Classy Styling.


Worst Features

Would Like a Toggle Switch on the Dash for the Throttle to choose between SPORT MODE and ECONOMY MODE.
