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.

Everything you said is spot on! My first car was a 1974 Vega. I had to turn the A/C off to have enough power to get on the highway. I got it in 1979 as a HS graduation present from my parents. That and I added $300 of my own money to it. I was very happy to have it. I learned how to fix cars with that one. It constantly needed repairs. The day I traded it in a dealership the poor salesman had to wait 10 minutes for the smoke to clear before he let the appraiser look at it. A lot of the kids now a days feel entitled to everything. And when they get it either they don't like it or don't appreciate it. I now drive a 2016 Versa S sedan with 5 speed manual. And I love it!

My bad, never thought I am geographically challenged... However, Missouri is a "shall issue" state as well.

Not sure what "shall issue" means but Missouri is a conceal and carry.

The problem here is they have more or less decriminalized auto theft. If a car is stolen (not car jacked). The police definitley wont look for it. My sister had 2 cars stolen out of her driveway on dec 22 of this past year. They were found by us driving around in the canfield apartment area. (This is is Ferguson, specifically the Micheal Brown apartment area). They didnt get the cars processed (fingerprinted) because they would have to pay the towing and impound fee and the police wouldnt go look for the thieves anyway.

As I said, car jackings are done here on a daily basis in areas that are considered "good". Just this past weekend they carjacked a lady that had 5 kids in the car!. This particular incident the thief did let the lady get the kids out, but quite frequently, a car is taken with a child in it. The police do try to get those, but if a car is jacked without occupants the police dont do anything. The crime is considered nonviolent and a person with a conceal and carry cant defend themselves unless the thief has a weapon.

Ever since the Ferguson thing, the police basically have their hands tied behind their backs. Add to the fact that st. Louis is becoming "far left" politically. And any move made towards a non white person is automatically racist even if the non white person was in the wrong.

Anyway, again, talking about my original response, again, a random man stopped me at the car wash while I was wiping it down and just couldnt get over the fact that my car looks so awesome. And he couldnt get over the fact that it was under 10 grand new. So foo on pickleweeds and his stupid looking note. Even if it wasnt ugly before, it is now!
