I am in the process of buying a new commuter car & I am considering the Nissan Versa Note 2014 SV. Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions when considering this particular car? What are the pros & cons? Should I be concerned about driving in the rain/snow? If anyone has any input they would like to share please let me know...love it or hate it...I wanna make the right choice. Thanks

I am looking at a certified pre-owned with 38K miles thats a 2014 SV Note. Is it covered under the 7 year/100K mile warranty?

Warranty is for 5 years, 60,000 unless you purchase an extended warranty out of pocket. See below:

The warranty period begins on the date the vehicle is
delivered to the first retail buyer or put into use, whichever
is earlier.
FOR HOW LONG AND WHAT IS
COVERED
 BASIC COVERAGE
 The basic coverage period is 36 months or
36,000 miles, whichever comes first.
 This warranty covers any repairs needed to correct
defects in materials or workmanship of all
parts and components of each new Nissan vehicle
supplied by Nissan subject to the exclusions
listed under the heading “WHAT IS NOT COVERED”
or, if the part is covered by one of the
separate coverages described in the following
sections of this warranty, that specific coverage
applies instead of the basic coverage.
 Bedliners will be repaired to commercially acceptable
standards subject to the conditions and
limitations listed in WHAT IS NOT COVERED.
 POWERTRAIN COVERAGE
 The Powertrain coverage period is 60 months or
60,000 miles, whichever comes first.
 This warranty covers any repairs needed to correct
defects in materials or workmanship.
 Powertrain coverage applies to components
listed below under the headings Engine, Transmission
and Transaxle, Drivetrain, and Restraint
System, supplied by Nissan subject to the exclusions
listed under the heading “WHAT IS NOT
COVERED”.
ENGINE
Cylinder heads and block and all internal parts,
rocker covers and oil pan, valve train and front
cover, timing chain and tensioner, oil pump, water
pump and fuel pump, fuel injectors, intake and
exhaust manifolds and supercharger, flywheel,
seals, and gaskets.
TRANSMISSION AND TRANSAXLE
Case and all internal parts, torque converter and
converter housing, automatic transmission control
module, transfer case and all internal parts, seals
and gaskets, clutch cover and housing, A/T cooler,
and electronic transmission controls.

Another Consideration

Another option than the 2014, consider a new "last year" model from a dealer. I received a great price (compared to used prices) for my model year 2015 (manufactured in Mexico in Oct 2014) that I purchased new April 2016 with 5 miles on it. As other poster already explained, I can confirm, the warranty period clock begins with purchase date; not manufacture date. So the BASIC 36 mo Warranty will expire April 2019 (on a 2015 made in 2014!). PowerTrain 60 mo warranty (CVT) April 2021.

Mine is a sedan, SV. Would purchase again. However, I am not a commuter. Barely 5,000 miles on it now, 30 months later. My GEICO insurance extends the warranty to 7 years or 100,000 miles.

At 24 month maintenance, dealer found QUOTE "Left rear shock leak due to defective internal seal”. Warranty covered new shock and installation.

Consider locating this alternative to buy or to use as leverage on used price. Warranty matters (to me, anyway!); peace of mind.

At 5k miles and already leaking shock? Does not look like a pillar of reliability.

Again, beware the CVT like the plague. Do enough google and you will know why, it is no joke. The transmissions have a fairly long history now of erratic failure that has no limits on why or when. Well, actually the why is known, but Nissan has no intention of fixing it beyond simply giving a new transmission which can fail as fast or faster than the last one.

To all who do not know, the Nissan buyout that occurred around year 2000 decimated the quality of the brand name, note how problems with post-Y2K cars have whoppingly increased over pre-Y2K ones...........

The Renault owned triumvirate that took over sells the cars aimed at a lower caste market all over the world and why they are cheap and nothing gets engineered to last as long as before and no interest there in changing that at all.

The Nissan the world used to know is GONE.
