Wow, I went to Nissan this morning...no wonder they had so many. I guess people are scared to buy them.

Just like Toyota with the Prius and Corolla.

Yeah, I like the chrome grille on that model. I wouldn't trade my Versa for it tough.

I wouldn't either simply because the trade in value is not much on the Versa. Plus I have put too much work into it. I want to keep it for a long time.
Maybe one day I'll buy one. I think it's just way too cute.

The test for this is crazy. I mean granted it should be within the allowable limit for fuel spillage but read this:

Quote:
Much like the HS hybrid, NHSTA cites that the amount of fuel leakage following a rear-moving barrier crash "exceeds the allowable limits," and that this could result in a fire. While a fuel leak is bad news, it's important to note that this NHTSA test isn't simply a case of a simple crash test and resultant fuel leak – the government agency's methodology includes striking the vehicle from the rear with a deformable barrier at 50 mph with a 70 percent overlap. Post-impact, the vehicle is then spun on its longitudinal axis degree-by-degree for a total of 90 degrees, somewhere along which a fuel leak was detected. While any fuel spillage is a bad thing, we suspect you can put any images of the massively overblown Ford Pinto debacle out of your head right now.
Plus since nissan is going to take care of it and I'm sure it will be revised for future models this seems pretty week compared to other recalls of late.
