Why the 2007 Nissan Versa?

Ride smoothness

Compared to other cars in this class I test drove, the ride was way above and beyond. Smooth with just enough feel that I know what's going on with the road beneath me.

Handling

I find this car quite fun to drive, and I'm the kind of person who grins with glee when there's 2 feet of snow to blaze a wild bumpy trail through. Good braking, good cornering. Do keep in mind, it is an entry level, subcompact hatchback.

Cargo capacity

I amaze people with how much I can fit in this car. I wasn't a hatchback fan when I bought this car, but I am now. It's nearly as good as having a truck with the seats all folded flat. The truck bed just doesn't have a roof.

Driving position & visibility

I'm short, and never buy NA cars because I have to kiss the steering wheel to reach the pedals. This car lets me keep the steering wheel a comfortable distance away, but it's also comfortable for my leggy 5'10" sister to drive.

Price or payments

The competition when I was buying this was the Toyota Yaris, and this car was quite a bit less than the Yaris with AC, automatic transmission, and power locks/windows, etc., even when you counted in the government grant for $1000 for the Yaris.

Why Not the 2007 Nissan Versa?

Front seat support & comfort

The seats on this were really not nice. Cheap is the word. Poor shaping, no lumbar support. They have really improved this in the new 2012 sedan, at least. It only took them 5 years.

Warranty, maintenance cost

It only came with 1 year comprehensive warrantee, which wasn't quite enough to cover squeaks and rattles. This has also been improved in newer models to 3 years.
