Customers looking for an inexpensive and roomy sedan that gets decent fuel economy could do worse than the 2012 Nissan Versa. However, critics on TotalCarScore.com want more than that, and they characterized the current model as a step backwards. They offered a litany of complaints about everything including the noisy cabin, clunky handling and “blatantly cheap” interior.
Brauer was equally unimpressed by the vehicle. In addition to the cabin noise and a “lack of drivetrain refinement,” he also described the handling as “tippy,” an alarming word that is exactly what buyers don’t want to hear when shopping for a new vehicle.
