New Owner :). It's my fiances car but I'll be the one taking care of it so I'm on here to learn anything I can about this car. (My personal vehicle is a 2004 F-150 XLT. :) )

Hope to get to know you all and enjoy "my fiances" New Versa ;)

When the "new" tires wear out I'll be upgrading her wheels and tires (Hate hub caps!) And I believe its the 1.6L but I'll double check tomorrow. (It's auto) I would like to do whatever it takes to get rid of the horrible whine when you "try" and get on the gas.. or even once you get up around 55-70mph its kinda whines and struggles to hold the speed. And one other small issue I've found was if you slowly accelorate it makes this funny slipping sound but if I gas it.. the best you can for this stock versa it shifts normal for a 4cy. Just so everyone knows I'm use to driving a 2004 Ford F-150XLT 4.6L with a programmer on it.. so I'm use to some power lol.

It sounds like you're describing a CVT, that sound is normal, basically holds the revs high if you gas it. Like 1 gear.

Bah I hate it haha. Is there anything I can do to give the car a bit more pick me up? I know its only got like 110-120HP.. What would I have to do to get near 180HP? I just want more pickup without killing gas mileage.

You can get an MR20DE(07-12 Sentra engine) for less than $1K. I believe those make around 145hp from factory so if you do that and get an intake for it you should be around 160hp, which is great for a Versa. :thumbsup:
