2008 Nissan Versa Sedan User Reviews

- $7,270 - $8,316
I recieved my 2007 Versa hatchback at the end of July, 2006, the first of this model in Alberta. I immediately drove to Vancouver Island and then east, across Canada to Ottawa Ontario. From there I drove to Detroit Michigan and on to Chicago. I picked up old Route 66 and followd it to Los Angeles. I drove east to Las Vegas, through Nevada to Salt Lake and back to Calgary. I covered over 9000 miles in two months in this amazing automobile. My mileage was unbelievable at well over 45 miles to the gallon. It took rough roads as easily as it did the major interstate highways. The ride is far more comfortable than was my 1992 Sentra. The interior space is remarkable! There is no better automobile on North American highways today!!...read morehide

- Very responsive with the Continuous Velocity Trans. (CVT). Blue Tooth works great!
- Breaks a bit touchy with no Anti-lock System. A bit of a blind spot.
Fun to drive because it's so responsive. I consistently get 33-34 mpg with combined city/freeway driving. My hatchback is very roomy especially in the back seat. . . . MUCH better than the Mazda 3, Toyota Matrix and Yaris, Scion and Honda Fit. I absolutely love the Blue Tooth feature. However, my 2007 hatchback model came with outdated Blue Tooth software that basically didn't work at all. Nissan claimed you have to have the "right phone" for it to work. NOT TRUE. I insisted Nissan replace the unit and guess what? IT WORKS PERFECTLY with all phones I tried (over 17 different brands and models so far). I adore the keyless features and have great fun teasing my friends about the car being "DNA encoded" . . . ha ha. The best part was the price. You just can't get all these great features for the price. Under $20,000 including tax, licensing, and 7yr/100,000 warranty....read morehide

- only one good thing Fuel Economy
- the seats and the air con
This car is for only one person and thats the driver.
They shouldn't have even made any other seats.
I took a 6hour ride in it. i sat in the back seat.
OMG! my back hurt as well as my butt.
no cruise control.
I live in the deep south where its normaly 100degres outside air con is a must and this car might as well not have one. its air con is more like a vent. The air con takes forever to cool. Im talking about a good 20min before it cools. OH! and forget it if you have kids in the back seat not only will they have back problems they will melt... the air doesn't reach the back at all.
this is really a go to Work and Home car (by yourself) really great on gas
DO NOT BUY IT. WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!
4 months later paid it off and traded it in for the Rav-4 from toyota
seems to be going well so far.
bought for $15,000
got back $13,000
put 30,000miles on it....read morehide

- very roomy for its class. Fuel economy is very reasonable.
- Too new to tell
Our average fuel economy is about 26+/31+ for city/hwy, so the ratings are pretty down to earth, including inclines, city traffic lights, a/c usage and groceries in the trunk.
We love this car: we own two of them.
Insurance-wise it is very cheap to insure as it ranks best in its class.
The transmission is smooth. We don't miss the subtle shifting of gears that can be felt on other automatic transmission vehicles.
My wife loves the cd changer on the radio itself, as well as the cruise control, blue tooth and the fact that you don't need a key to turn the car on (as long as the key is on you)....read morehide

- Good mileage with the CVT transmission.. 31+highway miles, unbelivable room inside for it's class
- The Versa dosn't have the looks of a Sentra, I guess they needed the shape to get the room inside.
The Versa is unique in it's class in that it has as much room inside as a car 2 sizes larger. It rides very well on the highway at 75 mph and we get 31+ mpg doing it. It takes a bit to get use to the CVT transmission. The engine will change rpm as it speeds up with no fixed shift points. With the cruise control set at 75 it will run along at 2500 rpm or so. If you hit a steep hill the engine will slowly rev to 5000+ but the speed will not drop at all. The electric steering is very light in a parking lot and very tight and well centered on the highway. The sedan will also suprise you when you see how much trunk space you have behind that roomy back seat. Because the Versa is tall in ratio to its width you do feel it a bit if you are in very gusty winds, but I have not had any control problems at high speed. The side curtain air bags standard are a good thing to have too. At 2500 miles driven in our first month, (we drove from So Calif to Oregon over the mountains and back), we have had no problems. I think this is a great practical small car for families or commuters, or anyone who wants an economical yet comfortable car. The Versa I think should be compaired to Civic's and Corollas, rather than the smaller Yaris and Fit. Check out the wheelbase and inside demintions when comparing and you will see why I think so. The extra room inside and smooth ride make you feel like you are driving a larger model car....read morehide
