Normally drove a F150 (300 towing HP, 30 ft. to the gallon) and a Harley. Keeping both but need a little piss-cutter and the Versa seemed like the best deal as I started driving 50 miles (total) to work and back and the truck wasn't making my banker happy.
I like the little thing. Got a 2012 SV and the only thing I really want is a center armrest and some extra rims for winter tires.
Anyone recommend a decent center arm rest?

Cheers
JR

Welcome to the forums!

If your looking for rims and tire packages Tirerack.com and discount tire.com are 2 great sites for tires. On my Versa in the winter I use steel wheels and Michelin X-Ice 2 tires they are going on 5 years of use and are great tires in the snow and ice!

Welcome to NVF! Ever tried a natural gas F150? We had a NGV Exploder years ago. I shoulda got another nat gas truck when the rebates were good
My Versa is great for commuting too, got 189000km and counting.
The snows are a definite bonus, as you know living on the lee end of Lake Ontario. Welcome JR! 08v

Welcome, the Versa works well as a commuter. I just went the other way, my Versa is my last non-american car. It is good as a gas sipper for going around into town and whatnot. As was mentioned, try the ebay armrest. I've got one and it works well, I had to screw mine down into the cupholder to secure it though.

Ever think of trading your F-150 for an eco-boost equipped one?

Welcome! I wondered if Canadians called American cars domestic as well.
I think alot call them "american" cars. There are alot of plants here that build them... a couple of my neighbours work at the Ford plant in Oakville. I guess one could argue that many Toyota/Lexus/Honda/Acura vehicles are built here as well, but its just not the same. Although I will say I don't think there is any such thing as an "american" car anymore. I know one neighbour who lost his job after Ford dropped them to outsource to a chinese machine shop.

Regardless, I love the build quality of my truck and girlfriends G8, they are ages beyond any "import" (not including the expensive german ones of course) I have ever been in.

You can pretty much guess what type of natural gas is in the truck after an evening of beer and beans, much to the chagrin of the wife. :)

I need all the guts the F150 has to tow a 26 foot "toy hauler". Anything "eco" just won't do it. I really only use the truck now for hauling "stuff"

I hear you... thats why I ended up going 3/4 tonne, I have a utility tractor that I tow around sometimes, as well as a dump trailer for house reno's. Love having enough power that I don't need to think twice about hauling that kind of stuff.
