Purchased As New
Purchased to replace my Scion xA because I needed more room for travelling with the family. The Nissan has more room, gets much better mpg at interstate speeds, and even manages slightly better mpg around town! First car I've owned in 20 years without a manual. Though boring, the CVT works well, and it's a sacrifice I was willing to make for fuel efficiency.
I bought the S model with the cruise control package. That means crank windows, manual locks, seats that look like they are covered in landscaping fabric, and acres of hard plastic. Yes, this car looks CHEAP, but the engineering is still top-notch, so I don’t mind. If you’re an automotive minimalist like me, be warned. Because power locks are so ubiquitous, key holes are now considered superfluous. There is a key hole for the trunk, and the driver’s door. And since the S model does not have a fold down rear seat, you can’t even use the trunk as an emergency entrance. So if your lock freezes, or driver’s door handle breaks, you have no way into the car! I consider this a legitimate safety issue. I addressed it by spending $450 to have power locks installed aftermarket. That only did the rear doors. Doing all 4 would be an additional $200.
