The Nissan Versa is the most comfortable and gas efficient car that I have ever owned or drove.The price is affordable for just about any budget and you will save at the pump as well.I also enjoy the interior space for being considered a subcompact it has the most leg room and trunk space in its class. The ride is also as smooth and quiet as larger, pricier sedans.

Worst shifting car I ever owned

We bought the 2014 Versa Sedan with the 5 speed transmission. It has what I consider a serious safety issue when downshifting from 5th to 4th. The shifter randomly locks up and you are unable to get into any gear till you wiggle it free which if you are lucky is while coasting otherwise you have to stop and fight with it. After contacting Nissan consumer affairs which basically blew us off saying their technicians are aware of this and call it rough shifting from 5th to 4th. Also 3 attempts to have it repaired through the Nissan service department which commented it drives like all the 5 speed 2014 Versas which you can interrupt a number of different ways. At least the final service manager was honest enough to comment even replacing the transmission will not correct this as a new 2014 transmission would perform the same. At this point with roughly 1,000 miles on the car I traded it off before we were involved in a rear end collision.

I bought the SV version with CVT transmission for commuting 72 miles everyday. After 2 years of driving I have been very satisfied with this car. If you buy cars as a statement of "who you are" and expect your car to be "fun to drive" then maybe this car is not for you. But if you're pragmatic about car ownership and want a reliable, safe and economical means of transportation then look no further. Let's just jump right into the stats: I do mostly highway driving and get ~43 mpg in the summer and ~42 mpg in the winter. The car has plenty of pep to pass cars on highways. I don't drive like a grandma but I also don't try to "beat" the car next to me every time I start from a light. I've owned the following cars in the past: Honda civic 99, neon 2008, dodge dakota 2004, mitsubishi eclipse. Versa handles better than all except the eclipse, of course, but it does handle very well in the snow, which was a surprise to me. I guess the Electronic stability control does its job. The car has more interior space than one would imagine for a subcompact. The engineers who designed the interior pulled off a miracle in my opinion. I put two kids car seats in the back and still have plenty of leg room in the front for me and the passenger (I'm 5'10' by the way) The car has performed flawlessly so far. I change oil myself every 7000 to 8000 miles. Assuming it continues to perform this reliably I see myself buying a versa again. Oh, and I love the CVT transmission compared to every automatic trans. I've ever experienced...totally smooth.

Bought this for graduate school and commuting. I have been very impressed. I have over 7500 miles and my gas average is 36.4. The interior could use some work but for the price its hard to complain. It does great on road trips. My only complaint with Nissan was that they offered no roof rack for this car.

I have not owned my Versa for very long yet but so far I really have enjoyed it. This is my 3rd Nissan I have also had a 2005 Nissan Frontier and 2007 Nissan Altima. My choice to go with Versa is for the gas mileage and so far I have liked my decision. I drive 15 minutes to work and back and usually by mid week my Nissan Frontier would be to a half a tank, where as my Versa still has more than 3/4 of a tank and it is much smaller tank.

Although I have only owned my vehicle about six weeks, I can share my experience so far. I bought a base car to save miles on my other vehicles and fuel economy. I have driven my Versa just over 2,000 miles and have experienced no mechanical issues. I keep an chart of miles per gallon from day 1 and for the 2,000 miles my vehicle has averaged 34.47 M.P.G. This is with a city/highway driving mix of 75% in-town/25% highway. I drive at posted speed limits and am not the first away from the traffic light when it changes to green. The car has exceeded my expectations to date. It is an inexpensive car and we have to keep that in mind in evaluating it against a luxury car. The car is very roomy, quiet on the highway, and frugal at the pump. My only complaint is the whine of the manual transmission when driving in town and that you cannot order one with cruise control in the base model.. That said, it is a car priced under $13,000 and a value at that price
