Purchased As New
purchased new in 2007 I have 68,000 miles just getting ready to replace the brakes for the first time care is super reliable normal maintenance every 3,000 to 3,500 miles tire ware is a hit or miss the continental tires that came with the car lasted a little over 35,000 not bad switched to Falcons not a good tire for the Versa tire ware was very quick will be replacing with Bridgestone Ecopia EP 422 has a 65,000 mile tire life will let you know. This car has been one of the most reliable and fun to drive with very little cost and maintenance. I drove a 2005 BMW 325cic before I purchased my Versa my wife drove a 2005 Nissan Armada GLE and traded it for a 2007 Nissan Sentra. Needed to save on gas prices. I was surprised when I test drove the versa when I took the Armada in for an oil change by how much room was in the car and how the car was rather quick for such a small car. The lease on the BMW was just about up and was thinking of purchasing the car but I kept on thinking of the versa. A week later I was looking at the maintenance cost of the BMW and thought it was rather high and I did a lot of driving at the time so I went back to Nissan and drove the car again and fell in love with the little thing. Very glad I purchased this car. I have seen funny stories on how bad and cheap the car is how unreliable the car is and on some cases if you ask the owners if thy maintained the car properly most will tell you no thy think the car should be reliable weather thy change the oil or rotate the tires in a timely matter or not. This is most of the bad reviews on all cars if you take care of your car it will take care of you. Some cares have problems more then others weather you take care of the car or not. If you are reading reviews the first ones I look at are the bad reviews and if I can will ask the owners if thy took care of the car properly or not most the time just by reading you can tell this but some times it does not hurt to ask. That I think is the proper way to research a car that you are considering buying. Also watch out for people who write bad or even good reviews and thy never even owned the cars thy are reviewing. But for this little car I will buy another used as a second car or a new one pending on how much thy change the design next year. Thank you Nissan for a Affordable car that is good on gas and low cost to run.
