Cons: small wheels/tireswheels/tires too small
Cons: It doesn't get as good of gass milage as they said it would when I bought it. About 30-31 on highway and as low as 24-26 in city.
Advice: Get the CVTI have the 2007 Versa, bought it 2 years ago. Not a problem yet with it. I still absoluely adore it. It is very roomy, my very tall brother has no trouble getting comfortable in it. The trunk is also very roomie. Everyone is suprised when they get in it the first time. The car itself is very peppy and handles well. I have the CVT, which I love especially on hilly roads. The cruise control has a very natural feel as well. I got the car fully loaded so it was a bit more than the base prive, but I still feel it such a great value. When looking for a car I looked at many used cars, and most were about as much as the Versa, but used and not nearly as nice. I love this car. GM and Ford could learn a lot from Nissan.
