Excellent performance so far--seven months

I love the Versa Note--it's compact, agile, has lots of interior room, it's zippy and much more fuel efficient than my previous Nissan hatchback (from 2008). Only had it seven months but it has been unfailingly reliable. What I want in a car is small size, efficiency, nimbleness, and reliability--I adore this car.


Small and compact

Exactly what I need. Wish it was a bit roomier. Back up camera needs some getting used to and there seems to always be a glare on the screen.


Nice car

Lots of room. Easy on gas. Great warranty. Love all the features and chrome and big trunk. Love the color. Great price and friendly service.
