Pickleweed is one of those entitled little whiney babies. Be thankful your mom got you a car. A new car. You know what I got on my 18th birthday ( which was 1988). A 1981 Pontiac t 1000 that needed the clutch replaced. Fortunately my brother in law was a real mechanic so fixed it for cost. And instead of whining that this was a "lame uncool car" I was thankful and grateful.
As far as the other people saying a versa is a "piece of junk". Why do you have one then? The thing is I bought my 2017 S with a 5 speed NEW for less than 10, 000 dollars. Really what do you expect at a price like that? My car gets 35-36 mpg city driving and 40 straight highway. I does what it I need it to do. It gets me from point A to point B. I do admit that this is a "throwaway" car. But so was my 95 sunfire that I paid 15000 for brand new. (It had all the works). I drove it for 10 years. Then gave to my brother who drove it for a few more years. Anyway if this car lasts me 10 years then I'll be happy. That is 1000 a year for a car.
Additionally, people here are saying how ugly this car is. I get lots of compliments for mine. Maybe becuase I keep it is black and I keep it clean. Because it certainly isnt because I have made juvenile modifications to it. Sure it isnt the most attractive car out there. But again, I bought it for its functionality.
Lastly, I live in st. Louis. There are carjackings here in a daily basis. Maybe I'll be safe from this because it is so "uncool" and has a manual ( which noone can hardly drive anymore). Another bonus for me.
