Great looking and handling hatch-back! by VersaNoteLover from DC Metro Area on 10/01/2013. Trim: 2014 Nissan Versa 1.6 SV, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This car is very quiet and the blind spots are very easy to navigate. My friend who is 6'5" easily fits into this car - even the rear seats! Lots of cargo room too. User friendly controls are easy to use while driving and it has lots of hook-ups for you phone and other gadgets. I got the SV trim and got exactly what I wanted! Nissan also had a college buyer program which made it very affordable for me. Gas millage isn't quite as high as consumer report, but its still quite high which makes driving affordable. The mpg is closer to 40 on the highway. The rear camera is handy when parking in tight spots and the car responds smoothly to all controls. I got the "Peacock" color and LOVE IT!
Cons: The volume controls for the radio/music are a little drastic, I wish there was a number between 7 and 8 sometimes. Other times the volume is fine - I guess it depends on the song. I also don't use Serius radio, so making sure I didn't get charged for that was a little annoying but not too horrible. The acceleration is what you'd call powerful, but it does get the job done. Just don't expect to zoom ahead of cars in front of you. I drive in DC metro traffic, so even though I'm on the highway all the time I get city gas millage. I'm getting closer to 29-30, not 31-32, but its still pretty good so I'm happy with it.
Overall review: I LOVE my car. I spent over a month car shopping and got exactly what I want. I wanted good gas millage, beautiful color, hatch-back, to get from point A to point B, and for the right price. I got all of those things. I'm not the kind of person who needs a sporty or expensive car, so if you need tons of power or a status symbol, this might not be the car for you. Ideal car for me and anyone else who's looking for a car on a budget. I'd buy another in a heartbeat. Highly recommend this car!
