Okay, first post here. I should have our first Versa in a few days, a gray stripper. It's not our first Nissan, my wife had a Datsun F10 back in the 1970s.

It's our first new car in 16 years. We fell on hard times when the Internet crash of 2000 happened. We're finally back on our feet.

I'm an old car guy, well cheap car guy. I've owned Fiats since the 1970s, my latest is a 1968 Coupe I got from a Nissan parts guy in TN! Yes, I can turn a wrench, I did a ground up restoration of a Fiat spider years ago.

Back on topic, I tested five cars in the same class as the Versa and I couldn't justify getting anything else. It comes standard with what we need for the lowest price by far so ... I'm here.

Family guy, married 32 years, two kids in high school, yada, yada, yada.

I'm not a performance guy, I'm an eco guy. I'll try to squeeze every last mpg out of my Versa. Well that's me in a nutshell.

We got our car last night, I still can't get over how much room there is in the 2012 sedan.

The Nissan All Weather floor mats are great, unless you wear heals. (According to my wife.)

I ordered some cheap seat covers for now, I don't think the base level upholstery will hold up to teenagers for very long. Still on the fence over leather.

I had one as a rental while on vacation, and it is much roomier feeling than my 08 Hatch ... especially the trunk. We fit two large suitcases laying flat in the trunk of the 12 Sedan, plus two carry on bags. I cant even fit one laying down in my hatch!

Enjoy the car! :)

Any pics?
