Although this vehicle is almost a good value, it is reliable, gets great fuel mileage, performance not bad, but could be better. However I consider this vehicle very unsafe and would not recommend it for children whether passengers or considering this their first vehicle. Speeds above 50mph car is blown all over the road because it’s to light, especially on windy days or around big rigs, you can’t stay behind them any length of time. Fuel tank is too small. Can only travel about 280-300 miles. Body is flimsily made, dents & scratches very easily. Paid $18,000 for this, can’t even play music through Bluetooth. Would have been better priced at 10,000.

2016 versa sedan s. Bought with 23000 miles. Have put 3000 on it so far. Drives great smooth manual shift and a surprising amount of power for a 1.6 L. LG trunk generous back seat and plenty of leg and head room. Great A/C. Very important in louisiana heat. Bluetooth uconnect hands free. Works awesome. For the price I paid I really can't complain about the manual locks and windows. No big deal. I was 16 before I had a car with electric locks and doors. My 12 yr old had issues but overall its a very well made tight car. The 5 speed adds to the fun. Not to mention I have had complaints from others that the CVT TRANS. HAS SOME ISSUES. NO WORRIES FOR ME WITH MANUAL SHIFT. All and all my only complaint is no cruise control. All tech is current Bluetooth, hands free u connect audio controls on steering wheel aux input. Decent microphone for vocal commands. Also has 8 airbags and great safety ratings. I will add on to review after 50k. Great bang for the bucks. I am considering adding an after market cruise control for $400. 10.5 gallon tank averages 400 per tank. Seats are quite comfortable but am only 5'6 160Lbs. My brother is over 6'2 and has plenty of leg room without sacrificing leg room in back seat. She's my little plain Janie. Happy with purchase.
I love the back-seat leg room, the spacious trunk, and the gas mileage. This car drives incredibly smooth and is a HUGE money saver. Getting 35 miles to the gallon really helps with handling other financial needs instead of worrying about gas. I sold my Ford Fiesta to purchase this vehicle and I am completely satisfied with my decision. If you are looking into this car, no matter the year model, I recommend you to seriously consider the benefits from driving this model car. It’s absolutely great and I absolutely love it!!
Even though I had an appointment and was running behind my service provider arielle accommodated my recommendations/needs for my vehicle. Also, I did not have to wait so long for my service to be completed. I loved that they provide complimentary shuttle service. The shuttle driver Isreal was very kind and respectful.

This car has enough bells and whistles I haven't yet mastered them all but I look forward to becoming more comfortable with it. I'd been warned this model has trouble with its automatic transmission but, so far, it seems to work fine. Ride and "feel" are terrific.
My service advisor did an excellent job of informing me what the techs found on my vehicle. He helped me determine how to best care for my vehicle and he arranged a rental for me while my vehicle was there for service.He also kept me informed during the service, and was very helpful.
Great Value for the Money

I drive 71 miles one way to work 5 days a weeks and was in need of a fuel efficient car. The value of the money for the car. Only had for 3 days but overall great car.
My wife n I bought another Nissan sat 15 after our Last car was totaled, everything when good during that process.
4, 5 days later my wife noticed that a little center piece of one of the wheels fall off, so Friday 20 I when to the dealership to see if they can replace that part !
The reason why they couldn't help me was that the manager already bought the copy key or second key are out his pocket!
So far this is the third car I have bought at this dealer
2004 Nissan frontier
2005 Nissan morano
2017 Nissan altima
They going to lose my business and recommendation over a $98 dlls worth part
Reliable and Efficient

This car is super reliable and efficient! I mainly drive it to and from work, but also to transport my children. Although it's a smaller car, it has plenty of room. I love that it gets excellent gas mileage!
Great service kind employees. Got all the answers to the questions I had. I called them to get a price on one of their trucks and a little bit of info and they probably called me back and told me everything I need to know.

It is not the most stylish vehicle but for my purposes, POINT A to POINT B, you cant beat it... I get over 30 in the city if I take it easy and close to 40 on the highway. The car is fast enough for my needs in a stick shift, the automatic was a little too sluggish. Base model cost me less than 10 grand. Cant beat that for a brand new car. Only drawback, got rear ended at a pretty slow speed, the car took a lot of damage. Fortunately it was on their insurance.
This is an excellent car in my opinion I have been driving it a little while now and it’s great in the interstate (the steering takes a little getting used to) and it’s excellent in town with great fuel economy. I even love the sound system!
I have bought several new vehicles. After a week this is the first one I am not having doubts about my purchase. All experts advise against the Versa. Interior is nice and comfortable. Only thing I don’t like is the digital display. It reminds me of a cheap digital watch from the 70s. Not hard to get past when I look at the gas gauge barely going down after a 100 mile daily commute. I drive 80 percent highway and 20 percent city and average 38 mpg. Estimate is 35 highway and 27 city. I’m getting better than that. I love the space in the cabin and the large trunk. Clutch and shifter feel much better than more expensive cars I have had. Everyone likes the exterior styling. I’m not a fan of the CVT transmission so if you’re comfortable with a manual I would definitely go with it. Mine ether 2018.5 so I have the large display radio with backup camera and hands free phone which I really like. I have manual windows and locks which is fine by me. So far it’s been the perfect commuter vehicle.
This car met all of my needs it has plenty of legroom comfy seats 4 doors drives real well I get original owner engine replacement for life I left the lot with only 14 miles on this car and I must say I am satisfied with it
I just bought a 2018 Versa with 3 miles on it for a little over $10,000. This was with zero down, and trading in my 2008 Sentra Spec-v with $2,300 owed on it. My Sentra had 114,000 miles on it and I never had any issues with it. I’ve always had excellent luck with Nissans and will always own a small Nissan because it will always get me where I need to be. Awesome small cars.
