Love it!

I read the reviews before I bought my 2010 Nissan Versa. So, I wanted to write a review as well to help those that may be thinking about buying this car. It's an awesome car for the money. You can't beat it. It handles very well. I haven't driven it in the snow yet so I can't speak to that at this time. But, otherwise, it's awesome. I bought the hatch back because it looks nicer than the sedan. The hatchback is roomier than I thought that it would be. I love the headroom and the back seat room. People that sit in the back aren't cramped. The only thing that bothers me are the head rests in the front seats. They are positioned too forward and I can't find a comfortable position for me. I had compared this car to the Toyota Matrix and Honda Fit and for the price, you can't beat it. It is roomier than either of those cars and the price was right. I love my car!

Couldn't be Happier

I traded in my 1996 Honda Civic (got back Pennies, but it was expected for 214K miles). Originally looked at Honda Fit, Mazda 3 Hatch, Yaris 4 door hatch, Matrix, and older Scion XB. The Versa 2010 Hatch with under 7K miles that I ended up picking was by far the most comfortable inside. Outside, that's up to the eye of the beholder, where you'll get reactions that generally range from, "It's not ugly" to "Better than a Fit." Personally, I love the way it looks, and I was looking for a roomy hatch. The SL is a completely different car from the S, and it's prices will spell that out for you if you have doubts. But for the price, the comfort and the relatively modest engine (122 HP, more than Yaris and FIT, which felt sluggish) is all I need. Extremely quiet drive (remember, traded from 96 coupe), insane interior room (I'm 5'11), great get up and go for in City and relatively good passing power on highway. Interior looks like it should be in a car worth 2-3K more. Drive it for yourself if you commute (2 jobs and school, 7 days a week), and you won't be let down. Afraid of the 07-09 Versa's fuel pump, starter horror stories online but loved what the car had to offer, so jumped at 2010. Would I have been happier with an older Mazda 3 or even a less expensive Matrix? If I was trying to impress the ladies, then yes. But I bought this to keep for the next 10 years, so no, I don't think so - the creature comforts of the SL more than make up for the lack of zoom (which spells high insurance). Plus - a 2010 with 7K miles, with bluetooth, ipod connect, seat height adjustment to make it feel (in your own head) like it's a mini-suv, and the hopefully 30+ mpg are a great deal in my book. Faster cars are out there, so are prettier ones, and even cooler ones. But this is all I needed and much more - great interior. Can't say enough. Hoping it lasts.

Versa sedan base automatic

I have had the car for a few months now and cant really say anything negative about it. The MPG seems a bit lower than the specs have it at, I have typicaly been getting around 350 miles per tank full, but it is all up to how I drive. I use the car as a basic commuter for around 45 miles per day on back roads and highway. The car takes off good on the interstate when I have to merge into moving traffic. The base engine runs and shifts very smoothly. There are a few things missing on the base model like power windows, internal trunk release and cruise control. If you could live without those things then the car is a great basic daily commuter. The car rides very quietly and has very low road noise while driving at all speeds. It is also missing a split rear seat so there is no option to put the back seat backs down to increase the trunk space, but trunk space is very good in this model. The interior is soft and comfortable kind of like micro fiber. The fabric is easy to keep clean and I have had to clean chocolate milk off of the seat thanks to my 6 year old, no issues or stains after I cleaned it. Rear seat space on the car is good, I have driven with fout adults in the car and the leg room was fine for the people in the back. For basic transportation or a first car for the kids this will work fine. Easy to drive, good line of sight form the drivers seat without any blindspots on the sides of the car.

LOVE IT!!!!!

I was going thru a divorce and was a home maker and was having a hard time getting a car that I could afford and with room for my two carseats that also did not feel like I was in a tuna can. My sister went looking for me and found me my Versa, I have to tell you I was not sure if it was going to be roomy enough for me but it is great. We have lots of room for both seats and even room for one more person to sit in the back seat. They are even close enough to reach over and hand things to each other, but not too close to bug each other like toddlers like to to do to each other. I also was not sure if the hatchback was going to be big enough for my double stroller but it fits and I can even put a couple of bags in there too. So my overall review of the Versa is "I LOVE IT" and it is bigger than it looks so dont shy away from it because it looks small.

Great Car

Usually I would always buy a Toyota, however I always wanted to try a Nissan and so far I love it.

My Versa

I am very pleased with my almost-new Versa. It is just the right size for me; yet I can easily carry my two grandchildren in car seats in the back. The gas mileage is within the stated level.The seat is comfortable and high enough to allow me good visibility of the road. My friends love to ride with me and are amazed at the comfort and space. Thanks Nissan!

Great car for any point of life.

I really enjoy my Nissan because of the size which makes it easy to manuver in any tight spots. Most of all though the space it has inside the backseats as i tell my friends that they are adult sized seats front and back. Cause friends come in all shapes and heights. I also see it fitting to my future for when I start my family. Funny cause I even noticed the space from driver seat and back passenger seat where distant enough too so I don't have to experience the kicking from my little sibling. They fold down which will be beneficial for moving or shopping. Gas has never been better I feel great filliing up the tank and willing to offer to drive now just cause I know I won't drain my gas now that it is a 4 cylinder. It even alerts you when the tire pressure needs to be checked another wallet saver. Sure my v6 was great to pick up really fast but there is really no need a 4 cylinder picks up more than enough for me and I really don't see a difference after having accelerated to my desired speed.

Little Big Car

When I first saw the car on the lot I said to myself this car is too small for me and my twins. But once inside and saw the head and leg room I was sold. I love my Versa. I willn't trade her for the world she like one of my babies. Thanks CarMax for my third child. 2010 VERSA BIGGEST LITTLE CAR. Loving it!! ;))

Great Car!

I am very pleased with my first car. Its a economy. At least this car is a complete gas saver. Very affordable and great for a first car. The car is easy for me to maneuver and I can get into real tight spaces. I am enjoying my 2010 Nissan Versa.

My Nissan Versa

I've had my Versa for about 1 month. I like the fact that it is fuel efficent, which is most important. The size is good to, I call it the baby SUV. It car thus far performes well except, I dont like the fact that is does not have any power from the point of stopping to driving. Not that I need it to go from zero to 30 in seconds, but a little more power would be nice. What I don't like: the electric mirror adjuster is too low for the driver, you have to look as to where it is while driving. Also, there should be a feature, when the tires are low, there is a warning light, but it would be nice to have some info as to which tire it is. Other than that I'm satisfied with my Versa.
