Well while cruising the net I stumbled across a few things that make mention of a late model lineup addition to the versa. It's called the SL + FE. There is almost no info on this. It seems the same as an SL but gets a few more MPGs. It's even listed on the fueleconom.gov website.

I had heard that the new cubes had a reflashed CVT. I guess it's a comp reflashing. Maybe nissan grabbed the last bit of SL's and reflashed them. Does anyone know anything else about this model or have heard of it?

It seems nissan did something to change the fuel economy on only the CVTs (which is another reason I think there is reflash) to get more MPG's. They wanted it retested by the EPA and couldn't do it without a new model name. Hence the versa SL + FE and the Sentra FE. Seems nissan is dubbing anymodel with CVT the FE.

I don't know if the FE's have the reflash. I did read that the Cubes come with an updated program for the CVT. So I was just thinking being the same engine and I believe tranny that the new model FE Versa's had the same thing. But I have know evidence of this.
