An exceptional first car.
November 8, 2018
I, being an international student, was looking for a car, that had a blend of good gas mileage, low and hassle-free maintenance, space, comfort and safety, all at an affordable price. Because I did not wand to spend too much, I looked in the direction of used cars, and since I travel around 60 miles per day for work, I needed a car with good gas mileage, in order to reduce the fuel bills. After looking and considering various options, one day, I saw an online advertisement for this car. After doing a thorough research, taking a test drive of this car and discussing with my family, I came to a conclusion that this would be the perfect first car for me. I bought this car around 3 months ago and I am extremely happy with my purchase. I find this car extremely easy and comfortable to drive. I am getting around 37 miles per gallon on the highway (the gauge shows an average gas mileage of 35.2 miles per gallon), which is really good, considering that I tend to drive this car briskly at times. I have driven this car at 87 mph on I-95, and I am happy to report that the car was extremely stable, even at this speed. This car has a fantastic combination of good pulling power, along with good gas mileage. My car is an SV model, equipped with a CVT gearbox, power windows, central locking, tilt steering adjust, and most importantly cruise control and an aux-in port for playing music. Cruise control helps me in improving the car's gas mileage, while aux-in port means that I can play music in the car through my phone, which is million times better than playing music through a CD Player, perfect in this day and age for tech-savvy people, who also like to listen to music. One day, I tried sitting in the backseat of my car, behind the driver's seat, after pushing it all the way back. And I am happy to report that I did not feel cramped at all (my height is 5'11", and I have long legs) and I had enough space between my legs and the seat, which proves that this car is extremely spacious .Another point that I would like to make, is that honestly, I find this car much better looking than the Nissan Versas after it (i.e. 2015 and beyond, with their bigger grille and headlights), and finally, this car scores top marks with regards to safety, I mean frankly, there is no modern used car, apart from this one, that costs under $5000 and comes with 6 airbags (most cars in this price come with only two airbags), anti-lock brakes, tire-pressure-monitoring (TPMS), traction control etc. And to top it all off, Nissan is an extremely reliable brand. Honestly, if you are looking in the market for your first car, and you want the car to be affordable, safe, spacious, comfortable, music-friendly and great on gas mileage, it is hard to beat the Nissan Versa.
