2016 Nissan Versa S (manual transmission)
442 Posts
I love the Versa design, but HATE the CVT transmission, and would never purchase a used or new Nissan. They knew they had a MAJOR problem with the CVT, and their idea of a fix was to stockpile a number of replacement transmissions so that when your CVT crapped out, they could just throw another one just as bad!!!!!!
Sadly... this action will leave a "bad taste" in the consumer's mouth and they'll shy away from Nissan products.
Personally, I had an old (manual transmission) Datsun pickup with a Nissan engine. You just couldn't kill the thing... what a work horse.
So I felt pretty comfortable purchasing a manual transmission Versa. I have no complaints about my Versa and am impressed with the 40-42 mpg (combined). It has been a fun "bucket list" car for me and my girlfriend.
