"I bought the Versa within a month of when it was first introduced in the States and was excited to be one of the first to own it. I liked the look of it and the CVT transmission was a big draw. The interior is surprisingly roomy, everyone is usually surprised by it, and the upholstery is a fun color and stays looking clean and new. The only issue I have with it is that I am a heavy person and the front seats are a little narrow, plus I've already had to have one seat replaced because it was defective. I also had to have the wiring harness replaced within the first year because it was defective. It was a little obnoxious because the Tire Pressure Monitering light kept coming on, and after eight months of going back and forth with the Nissan dealership to get it checked out and cleared, they finally realized that it was a wiring glitch. I love having the controls for the bluetooth and the radio on the steering wheel, and everything is well organized and within reach. It handles well in any kind of weather I've experienced, including snow. We had a couple of heavy snow days and I was a little worried because of the iciness, but it handled perfectly. Also, I was recently rear-ended by a Jeep Liberty and I was surprised at how well the Versa stood up to it. There was a lot of rear end damage, but the frame held up really well and it was all easily fixed by a reputable body shop. I also feel safe on freeways and don't feel dwarfed by bigger vehicles like I sometimes feel in similar cars. Overall, I'm very happy with the car and would reccomend it to anyone wanting a dependable, everyday car."

"I've have 20K on my Versa nothing has gone wrong. I live on a mountain and I'm very pleased with the way the CVT performs. I was concerned when I first bought the car that it wouldn't handle that well in the snow but I was pleasantly surprised this past winter. As long as you don't drive like a lunatic, you'll be aces. I didn't even put snow tires on last winter and I had little slippage out here where they might plow every 4 hours in a snowstorm. My passengers are quite surprised at the room in the back. It's certainly bigger than it looks from the outside. And I just love how everything is at my fingertips, mounted on the steering wheel. That's just another thoughtful perk. I even love having Bluetooth. I don't use it but I like that it's there:)"
