“I do like the look and feel of the Versa. I purchased a Nissan Versa 1.8 SL HB with a continuously variable automatic transmission after reading reviews and test-driving several comparable vehicles. Although I enjoy driving the car, I have been disappointed with the gas mpg. I got much better gas mileage with the Corolla. I currently am getting an average of 24-25 mpg instead of the 28-34 mpg the EPA website lists. This was one of the comparison factors I used in order to purchase the Versa. I paid extra to get the SL with CVT because of the estimated mpg savings by the EPA.

“My other concern is I am already having an issue with the Versa interior. The headliner in the car is coming loose and fraying across the front by the windshield. This is a new car, and new cars should not have this type of problem. If this is happening after such a short time, it makes me question the overall quality and dependability of the vehicle.

“Driving the Versa is fun, but I would hesitate to recommend this car to a friend based on the less-than-stellar mpg and the issue with the car’s headliner.”
