Good car with minor bugs.

2011 Nissan Versa 1.6 Base

This car is quite reliable and while I haven't owned it for very long I haven't had many problems. The air conditioning stopped working when the previous owner was driving it and I am yet to get it fixed so I do not know how much it will cost. This is a 4!cylinder car so if you want to go fast or accelerate rapidly then this is not the car for you. The gas mileage is good if you drive it right, you can't bring the RPMs too high or go too fast or the mileage will decrease a lot. Interior wise the car is nice but doesn't have many features you may expect in a 2019 model. The car doesn't have automatic headlights which can be a pain but the lights are good and I haven't had any issues with them. The stock speakers work well and there is an aux port which is nice. Overall the car is a good daily driver and is reliable and nice. It looks nice too but is pretty small so if you're a taller person this may not be the car for you. I'm 6'4' and it gets uncomfortable on long drives. Other than that, a good car if you don't plan on hot riding it.

Have enjoyed 42.000 trouble free mileage until now with superior mpg.

2011 Nissan Versa 1.8 SL

I have maintained my vehicle as per the manufacturer's recommendations and have never had major problems until recently. My car would not start as I tried to refill my tank. It would not start and an 'engine' symbol appeared on the dash. I managed to jump start my car and left it at the dealer's after hours. The next morning the service department told me I needed both a new battery and a starter. The service technician then discovered the engine computer was not functioning. They have tried three different computers, none of which worked properly as the 'check engine' light displayed a malfunction with each attempt/computer. The Nissan dealer has had the vehicle for four weeks and I have not been assured that the problem has been diagnosed or corrected. The vehicle has less than 43,000 miles on the odometer. Until now I have been pleased with its performance and especially enjoy the great fuel efficiency. I am very disappointed at this time.

2011 Nissan versa: you get what you pay for, really.

2011 Nissan Versa

The 2011 Nissan versa is a surely reliable car. This car provides 0 wow factor, but it does what it is intended to do. While you can tell the car is cheaply made as there is no stand out features not to mention it even feels behind considering the year make; you get what you pay for. The car has ran well only ever not operating correctly once, and once the problem was fixed everything it was as if nothing happened. As for performance, don't expect to race as you'd probably lose out to your grandma due to the very slow acceleration. But to me these aren't actually negatives, these are trade-offs. While I may not know much about cars personally I feel as though the car is very adequate for the price. If I could give one word to my experience with this car it would be, dependable. With hardly any maintenance this car has ran about the same since I owned it and shows no sign of slowing down.
