Great on Gas

This Nissan is very roomy a 10 gallon tank so gas miliage is great nice size trunk the only thing i find is on long rides the seats are uncomfortable . I am 5"11 and have plenty of head room and average size adults fit in the back seat without a problem , I use to own a blazer will not by another truck I am sold on this very peppy sedan.


Best Car for the Price

The Versa is a great roomy car. Excellent gas mileage and it looks great also. The price is excellent!!


most awesome and reliable car i've ever had

The sales and finance department were awesome in getting me financed and in the car of my specifications.


Versa Hatchback is a good buy for the $$$

Suddenly I found myself in the position where I needed to buy another car but yet get the best bang for my buck (since I didn't have a lot of bucks)! I hadn't driven a car of this size for many years, and I really wasn't too excited about having to buy one now! The first time I drove the 1.8 litre, manual shift 6 speed I was impressed with the get up and go it had as well as the way it handled both in the city and on the interstate. Yes, it will keep up with the big boys but it does start to whine a little bit at 80 miles plus but performance is still there. On a recent road trip with all interstate driving I averaged 34mpg; in the city I will average 27. I could do better if I backed off of the "zip" but it is a lot of fun to drive in the city because it handles very well. I really like the fact that the stereo has an input jack so I can plug in my satellite radio as well as my mp3 player. I like the tire inflation warning light. Friends have commented that the car is "cute" ( I prefer hot) and they are amazed at the leg room in the back seat. There are drink holders up front as well as in the side pockets of the front doors. On the flip side, I sure wished the S model had a console in between the two front seats (I added an inexpensive after market console which works well). The placement of the 12volt plug for accessories is in between the front seats. I find that placement awkward plus I would liked to have had another plug in the back hatch. The design of the hatch cover shelf could be better. I am always knocking it off its "clips" when putting groceries in the back. The same fabric covers both the seats and part of the interior door and it is a magnet for lint, dog hair and dirt. I like gauges instead of idiot lights... although there is a tach. Considering the amount of $$$ it takes to put a Versa key on your key ring, this is a great buy!


Most reliable but lousy gas mileage

The car and mostly everything about it is fantastic, but the gas mileage stinks..17mpg-20mpg. The dealer I took it back to said after hooking it up to their diagnostics said there was nothing wrong and the only way they could tell if I left the car and their mechanic took it home for a couple of days to drive it to see why I was have such bad mileage...LOL!!!


Great car

I bought this car in July 2011. I absolutely love this car. It drives great, it is very easy to drive it, it runs smooth. Looks cute and it is a very spacious car. Has much leg room in the back too. I also like it that it sits higher than my previous car. Fits me perfect. I think I made the best choice when I decided to buy this car. I would highly recommend it to anyone who would like to purchase a good car.


Not for gravel roads

Nice car overall, but runs high rpm. I have six speed manual trans and at 70mph rpm is around 3100 . On county roads , dash rattles alot....something a new car shouldn't do...sigh.


Great small car for the price

Bought this car in March 2011 and have had nothing but good thing to say about car. Good gas milage and very realiable. Got the hatchback which has lot of room, which was a big help when I moved reciently. My only grip about the car was the tires that are on the car, very noisey and hard ride. Overall a great buy.


lovly versa

My 2011 Nissan Versa is qite nice with comforteable saets in front and back. I also didint want to spend much mony on a car.


the more I drive it, the more I love it

Great car, highly functional for an active small family, great value, it's got a whole lot of room for little car! It feels like this perfect little cross over, with the gas mileage to back it up. It is higher off the ground than any other vehicle in it's class, and the exterior design allows for great visibility.
