Not perfect but super dependable.

I love my car but it does have a few problems. An annoying issue is that it constantly loses hubcaps, I finally gave up, each new one costs me 25 bucks. I also had one very costly fix where the engine flooded. The mechanic said it had something to do with the way the engine was programmed to react to cold weather. But for the most part the car has been a trooper. I feel safe and I feel like it is not going to suddenly stop running. I cannot ask for more from an eleven year old car that has been driven pretty hard.

- Lara F

A small compact car, capable of withstanding a few more years.

My vehicle accelerates slowly, although it is a good car. No major or minor issues. I regularly have the tires rotated and do the regular maintenance. It is very light. Gusts of wind can make it hard to control the steering wheel, especially on bridges. Overall, it is a great vehicle. The steering wheel did start to dry rot in Florida heat. It is relatively comfortable to ride in. The only downside to this car is how light it is. You can feel almost every bump in the road compared to newer vehicles.

- Isabella R

Nissan versa 2008 for disabled riders.

I am not the driver, but a disabled passenger, and I find that the Nissan versa from the year 2008 is one of the most comfortable rides I have ever had. Sometimes cars seem to be comfortable, but it takes a ride over time to be able to confirm that, and I can confirm that the Nissan versa 2008 is a comfortable ride for disabled persons that cannot make a lot of adjustments in the way that they are seated.
