I got my 2009 Nissan Versa as part of the Cash For Clunkers program earlier this year. I had an old 94 Lexus that was on its last legs, and wanted to get a car that was smaller and more fuel efficient, yet maintained most of the quality I was used to. I knew going into it that this little 4 cylinder CVT wasn't going to be as zippy as my big 6 cylinder, but I am very impressed with its performance. Getting used to the general lack of shifting and semi-high RPMs that the car can generate took getting used to, but if you need to get off to a quick start, this car can definitely do it.
The interior room is one of the most impressive features. I'm 6'4" and I can set the driver seat to a comfortable position and still get in the seat right behind it without my knee's hitting the seat in front of me. The styling on the inside is generally what you would expect without being over the top. My only complaint is that the driver and front passenger doors have a bin on the bottom of them that is flush with the seat when the door is closed, and I have a tendency to kick it with my foot when getting out. So be prepared to clean it off a lot if you're tall like I am.
The gas mileage has, so far, been exactly as advertised, averaging about 28 city, and 35-37 highway. I should point out that I only have a little over 3000 miles on it, so this should actually improve a little with more mileage and oil changes.
Final words, great car for the price! Not gonna pick up girls with it, but you probably knew that going into it.
The car is excellent on gas and is very roomy inside.
2010 Nissan VersaGas Saver - California04/26/2011
I purchased the Nissan Versa for the gas mileage benefits and the reputation of Nissan. I was surprised by the power that the Versa had for a 4 cylinder. I am very happy with the Versa it is quieter than other reviews that I have read and the gas mileage is great.
