Pros: ; Intellikey!, handling; steering wheel controls for cruise, bluetooth and radio controls; full body side colors, flaired design for tail lights, easy parking, sunglass holder, sun-roof, extra visability via mini-windows in front of side mirrors, split-fold down seats, quietness for 4 cylinder; wife loves it!, 6 Cd Changer; speed senstive volume control, hands free Memo Pad option Cons: gas mileage not as expected or rated in spite of good driving habits; could use more space in the between-seat compartment, would be nice if Intellekey opened rear doors as well; gear selector can accidentally be put in low gear alot - needs some sort of extra stop mechanism; tire pressure gauge - too sensitive, especially due to cold weather; hands-free memo pad - needs more recording space, high performance tires - needed to be changed at only 20,000 miles - very low mileage for this to happen even if proper maintanance was not performed by prior owner.

And I must say that I am very happy with my purchase. Car has some very nice features including Bluetooth package and MP3 Audio jack and 6CD in dash changer with capabilities to play CDs burned in MP3 format; you can burn over 110 music files per CD so its like having a mini juke box in your car with over 650+ music tracks. Blutooth works great I have paired both Motorola RAZR and Motorola V195 to the car and it works flawless. And setting up Bluetooth was a breeze.. within minutes I was able to place my first call... best thing is if you know the number you can dial it using voice dial feature built in to this car. Brakes are great and the feel to it is just right... not too soft of a pedal. Driving around town and parking car in tight spot such as Chicago downtown and uptown area didnt seem to be a problem. Its a great car if you have couple of kids and you live in city. And Gas being in Chicago hovering right around $3.25 a gallon I am glad I choose a more fuel efficient car. Although its rated at 36 Miles a gallon I am getting right around 32 miles a gallon on average .. which is not bad considering I am using A/C a little bit. CVT transmission is smooth and is very well balanced to the 120HP engine; feels quite peppy. Whats nice about the Bluetooth package is you cant lock your Keys inside the car .. if you leave your keys inside the car doors wont lock (doors will shut but will not lock). And not to mention that as long as you have the Smart / Bluetooth key in your pocket you can unlock the door and start your car without needing to remove keys from your pocket... over all an excellent feature rich car for its price. Oh and same goes when you like to make a phone call ... your phone can be in your pocket or purse and using the button provided on steering wheel you can dial a number without even taking the phone out ... as a matter of fact you can leave the phone in your briefcase in trunk and still be able to make a call. Bluetooth works quite well. Sound system is quite decent .. I dont have the upgraded speakers but the ones that comes factory installed are quite decent and sounds great. All in all its a great car to have to get you around town.

After 9.000 miles and no problems, I feel as though I can give my thumbs up for this vehicle, a Versa SL 1.8 w/the CVT ! I am a bit disappointed with the fuel mileage. I have driven the car from Hartford, CT. thru the hills of Scranton, PA. on I-81 down through the eastern states on I-95, then onto I-4 to Tampa-St. Petersburg, FL. All of the freeway driving on cruise control and I still only averaged 31 mpg. I am very pleased the the car after trading in a 2002 Nissan Maxima w/75,000 miles on it. The Versa is much more "fun" to drive; tracks better and handles much better than the Max. I average about 375 miles before the low fuel light comes on and then I have about one and a half gallons left to get to the next station. My major concern was to be able to get around in comfrot, with good fuel mileage and respectful handling. I got them all. Last but not least, I also opted for the ABS brakes; mandatory in my book.

I have been driving a 2007 Versa for over one year. For its size class and price it is fabulous! Excellent for commuting. I bought the tech package and the stereo system if by far the best I have every had in a car. The hands free phone is great (although the mic is poor - doesn't pick up voice very well so I have to shout). The interior seems larger than most cars in larger class sizes. It is so quiet, a friend that I gave a ride thought it was an electric car. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants an reliable, comfortable economy car.

I wanted something that was great on gas....well I kind of got that. It's good on gas but not great for a compact size car. It could be better. I have no complaints on the drive of the car, fun to drive and I love the look of it, great interior too. Not the best in the snow, but it not the worst I have ever had either. Overall I like the car and plan on having it much longer.

Well, I like this car alot. The interior and exterior is excellent. Engine is quite. The inside is spacious, luxurious and smooth. I like the hatch back style. Sound system is amazing. Alot of leg room. All my friends were impressed by the interior. It is muct better than an aveo or a yaris. Accelration is impressive. However I do not like the following: 1- Gas milage is good but not great. 2- front seats are designed for slim people. 3- It is very difficult to check the blind spot when you are driving this car. After all, I would still recommend it and if time goes back I would buy it again and again and again. 4- The car make wide turns.

After about 2,000 miles, I'm very pleased with this car. I bought the base model, manual transmission. I do wish I had included the power package. There is not an outside lock on the hatch. The hatch is locked when the driver's door is locked. So to put something in the back, I have to unlock the driver's door, then put it in. Arriving, I have to unload the hatch and then walk around and lock the driver's door. Minor, sure, but a bit of a design flaw, in my opinion. Otherwise, I really enjoy it. I drive a mix of expressway and city driving and get about 30mpg. Probably not as good as the Fit or Yaris, but I like the extra power and room. Very happy.

Unsatisfactory Gas Milage

I'm a 70 year old driver, and not a hot-rod driver either in town or on the highway, therefore I cannot justify the 23-25 mpg fuel consumption that I'm getting on the Versa. It's a very dependable vehicle, but there's many larger and more comfortable automobile available that will get as good, or better, gas milage. Cannot figure out how the manufacturer is allowed to post the "28-36" mpg on the window stickers?
