Coming from a full size luxury car, the Versa took me some time to get used to. It wasn't the most comfortable car to sit in but after adjusting to the move from full size luxury to a compact, I'm loving it. The value gives you lots of bells and whistles for the money witch equates to great "bang for your buck".
I've also learned it gets nearly 33 mpg on highway. This was better than I'd thought even and a pleasant surprise.
Bottom line is that you're not gonna outrun the cops or punch the pedal to merge into traffic but it's a great car with a great look and great value. I love it, plan to keep it until my daughter turns 16 in a few years and pass on the blessing to her. Who knows, I may get another for me then. :-)
I wanted a small, inexpensive car that was easy to drive. Also, I wanted to like the looks of it. The car was a great bargain and drives like a dream. You should know, though, that I am a small woman who drives very little and does not want great speed or many bells and whistles.
Nissan Versa vs the 4x4 explorer that got 12 mpg's
2010 Nissan Versapractical go green guy - rio rancho nm09/26/2011
I traded a luxury 4x4 to be more practical and this Nissan Versa that amazes me daily from 30 mpg's to an owners manual full of careful explanation to how all the Gadgets work. Plenty of power with 5 adults in the car. The only missing feature is the outside temp gauge and compass ( which I will buy an after market rear view mirror ). Anyway the best purchase i ever made in, and I have made about 40 purchases over the years ( from volkswagons, porsches & MB to all the the americans ).
