Consumers Digest Awards V Best Buy Four Years Running:

http://www.consumersdigest.com/nissan_versa.html

Although it seems like CD is beating up the versa in the review, they gave the V the award for best buy in the small car segment. The Altima dropped off as best buy this year, but I have seen tons of altimas and vs on the road. I went by the Jackson Ms. plant a week ago. That place is huge.

Nico has a habit of beating up the V pretty good. I figured I would update any prospective V owners that the car is the right choice.

Most magazines do bash the V and all I hear is "not as good as the Fit" all the time. But they win awards like this often and there are more V's then Fits on the road.


205,125 miles when she was given away
35 mpg last tank

Not a fan of the Fit (otherwise I would have bought one). Hated the Yaris - waaaay too small and low to the ground. The V was and still is perfect for me! I am constantly amazed by how much stuff I can fit in the back of it. Perfect for trips to Ikea

You came by work and never even honked? Shame. I could have said hello.

There's a reason 5,500 new Versas are sold every month and it has ~25% of the market.

I don't like the Fit either. Our Versa has much nicer curves to it! Looks great and drives even better

And the Yaris is adorable, but wayyyyy too small!

I recently removed the cargo liner from the hatch, and it fits so much more now. I like it better without the liner.

One thing I noticed going through North Central Ms. was the number of Altimas on the road. A large amount. Also, are the other Nissan models made @ the Jackson plant. Like the Maxima. The more I look @ that car the more it looks like a premium brand car. Not just a high brand.

Really? Never thought of that.
It's true though, I rarely ever see used Versa's in the car flyer that comes in our paper every week.Glad to hear it's selling. I keep seeing a fully loaded red V with tinted windows and hood deflector driving down my street at night. I wonder where it is going, and who is driving it. It is literally my car's twin (besides a few accessories).

the article seems to be bashing the base models but praising the functionality of the hatches. either way, its putting more info out about the V so im good
