First post!
I had a 2002 Sentra in the past, loved that car.
Looking to get a Versa
Q:
Is the 1.8L engine the same as the sentra?
If so, has the head gasket issue been solved?
(at the 100,000 Mi point, my Sentra, had a head gasket leak and read it was not uncommon)

Thanks

No it's a newer engine. These have piston fit issues instead. But only some obviously, luck of the draw as to if you get a good engine. I have 333 000KM on my MR18.

Not the same engine, they are more comparable with the MR20 on the B16 Sentras.

I had a 2001 Sentra 1.8 as well, no head gasket issues over 300000km. I assumed Versa was same engine when I bought it, but no, that'll teach me to assume haha
Enjoy your new Versa, ask lots of questions, welcome!

Reasonably confident for sure.
One journalist called Versa the jumbo shrimp of compact cars
