2009 Nissan Versa Reviews

I got the 2009 Versa in 2010. It was brand new. I don't use the hatch very often and the handle on the back is broken. I took it to a shop when I went up to visit my mom and they said the piece is over 300 alone. I know they are telling me the truth since it is my brother in law who owns the shop. he even ordered the electric piece to replace just in case. What a rip off 300 for a handle and then there is the cost of labor and paint. The seal on the doors comes off and the plastic on the door by the floor keeps coming off and you can't get it to stay on. the passenger side arm rest, the vinyl is coming off. I love Nissan this is my 3rd one, but disappointed.

I bought a 2009 Versa in 2009. Was mostly happy up until the last year. Wheel covers don't last, fell off. It only had @ 50,000 miles on it when the battery died in May 2013. I understand batteries at some point will need replaced but even the tech at auto parts said that was a bit early for that. Then in June (this year 2013) the AC goes out. Took it to my mechanic for diagnostic ($90) was told the evaperator was bad $750 to fix. I wrote to Nissan Customer NO-Service, gave them the particulars and was advised to take it to an authorized Nissan dealer for diagnosis then they would review my case for possible assistance. Another $107 for diagnostics. Oh yay, the dealer says the compressor is bad and will fix for $1,233. Who is right? Two different parts. I left a message with Nissan rep that has never called me back to this day so I went through the many phone prompts to get another human. I gave them the info from the dealer, "will forward your info to regional rep who will call you probably tomorrow." She called alright, "we're so sorry you're having this problem but due to your car being out of warranty there is nothing we can do at this time." Really?!?! We all already knew it was out of warranty when I said 2009. Why on earth would you recommend me taking it to the dealer, charge me more money, if its just a black and white warranty issue? Why on earth would you say you review these things case by case? Oh its clear you look at each case NOPE, NOPE, NOPE, NOPE. This young of a car (that I'm still paying off) SHOULD NOT be having these major issues already. My Toyota rusted out before mechanical issues ever started. I called Nissan yet again and yelled long and loud that they supposedly will refund my diagnostic charge (no check yet). Oh but I was wished a nice day. I told the lady, "well that won't happen, you try riding around in 90 degrees with no air." I will not put that kind of money in this young of a car. I was thinking about trading up in the Nissan line but will never buy Nissan. They could care less about thier customers once you're out the door. DO NOT BUY NISSAN-EVER!!!

Coming up on 4 years, bought our Versa new in 2008. Nearing 100,000 miles and while a basic vehicle, we have been very pleased. Some of the interior is made cheaply - one plastic piece near the floor board has come off 3-4 times and the passenger front armrest fabric is coming out. Overall, though for 100,000 miles, we have been very pleased with this little car. It has the 1.8 4 cyl engine and gets about 30 MPG. We drive about half and half city and highway. I'll probably get something a little nicer next time around, but overall I recommend the Versa.

Nissan Versa puts the Sub in standard. We bought this car "used" with only 750 miles in 2009. So far we are just under 6000 miles and it would seem that the problems have started. For what ever reason the key will not come out of the ignition and it has been this way for a couple of months. After a couple of years the car battery had to be replaced for no apparent reason (with about 4000 miles).
As a base modle hatchback the car is missing several features that one might consider standard. It has completely manual locks and windows, no cabin lights in the front, and no ABS just to name a few things. The seats have no lumbar support and as a relatively tall person I have to push the seat back so far that I have to hyperextend my arms to reach the steering wheel limiting my range of motion and making driving rather unconfortable. Also I have found that the gas milage is not as good as one would think coupled with the fact that the car has a tiny gas tank you have to fill up more often then you would think. I too have found that having a tiny engine with hardly any horse power makes it very difficult to keep up with traffic on the highway.
To give credit where it is due I must admit that the turning radius is amazing and the AC is excelent.
So if you are looking for an unconfortable, stripped down, car with hardly any standard features this is the one for you! Otherwise you might want to look else where.

I bought a 2009 Nissan Versa a little over a year and a half ago and I absolutely love it. It's comfortable and roomy for driver and passengers alike, pretty zippy for a 4 cylinder thanks to the CVT and gets great gas mileage. My only real complaint is the fact that the wheel covers/hubcaps seem to be poorly designed. I lost the front right, only to replace it and lose the front left on the way home!

I'd also say be sure you know what you want and how much you want to pay when you go to the dealer. The dealer attempted to charge me $70 for the replacement hubcap, but eventually came down to $50 when I showed him they were available online for $40. This time I bought a set of 4 replicas for $35.
