#514 of 577 2010 Versa HB SL
Feb 15, 2010 (6:49 am)
When I went to buy my wife's car this week I didn't find any recent deals in here, so I figured I'd post mine to potentially help someone out. Here's what I got
Versa HB SL CVT
Aluminium kick plate
(also came with wheel locks, nitrogen and window etching, whatever)
$16,200 OTD here in VA with our 3% sales tax. Price includes $1250 rebate + $500 presidents day cash back
Seemed like a fair deal, my wife really likes the car. For anyone in the Virginia Beach area, Hall & Charles Barker Nissan will both sell at this price. Good luck
#515 of 577 single mom needs help with new 1-6 sedan buy or not
Apr 22, 2010 (6:43 am)
Im a single mom trying to help my daughter get a car. The nissan versa 1.6 is what im looking at. I keep reading about knocking noise from the car from other reviewers. But no one mentions the outcome or cause. I was offered 13400 with tax and title out the door. But I dont want to get the car if it has a problem and the dealerships arent helping with the cause.

Not sure what knocking noise those folks might be referring to. I have 73,000+ miles on my 2007 Versa and yes, it does kind of make a little more what sounds like "valve noise" than my past Sentras and Altimas have, but it hasn't been any kind of problem.
$13,400 including tax and title doesn't sound too bad, although I haven't bought since I got mine in 2007 for $13,675 PLUS tax & title

I am deciding whether to buy an espresso black/tan Versa hatch with auto transmission and power pack (plus whatever other option they make you get with that - splash guards, I think). MSRP was $16,195, I got the guy to $14,970 OTD, looking at the sheet he gave me it is about $14,200 for the car alone. I think I am happy with that - is it a decent deal? One dealer got nasty with me once we got anywhere near $15K. I am in central VA, if it helps any.

Not sure if this helps or not but I've seen them here for $13,520 (MSRP 16,385) for just the vehicle.

I bought the exact same car (hatch, AT, power pack) over new years for $13472+TTL, in the Bay area. Also got special finance rate. Whether your deal is a good one is hard to say. Pricing can be highly dependent on region, amount of competing dealers, incentives to dealers, etc.

Hello, I got a quote from a dealer in SoCal for $16,700 OTD including the $1,500 rebate. The MSRP of the car was $17,675. Please let me know is this a steal or not.... or I can do better than that. Please advise

Versa 1.6 sedan, 5sp manual trans
only options: AC + ABS
quoted price: $11,460 (inc dest)
I added a 7 year 70k warranty: $1400 (which I slightly regret, i may add, since the car seems very good quality over all)
With ca tax, doc fee, gap insurance, dmv, title etc: $15000
APR: 6.99% - 60 month loan.
Total amount, inc cost of financing: 17580.
The car is awesome overall - very, very smart indeed, nippy/fast around town, but engine is geared low (hence the nippiness) so it revs high on freeway - 4k rpm for 80mph - sounds like you're in a washing machine, and with no stereo included, that gets boring.
backseat leg room is inexplicably huge - really - even for two 6'6" men sitting tandem its huge. The inside materials are surprisingly good - cheap cars usually smell like dollar stores, but this one is great. i have no rattles or anything yet.
I don't have the remote locks, and i already dread having to unlock the passenger side rear door - you have to open the driver door (only that one has keyhole) and reach on through. if you have kids, pay extra for the locks. i have a sienna for the wide and kids
only downer is that it looks extremely ugly/weird from the very front (even for a European who's owned Citroens in the past), but from any other angle is very nice, IMO. A league above the accent, rio, aveo, etc. But then personally i find the Fit utterly repulsive, so ignore my subjective view on the aesthetics - you're not buying a 11k car to impress the ladies, after all.
I had two problems: first, the passenger side brake rotor dust shield was touching the rotor, so there was a constant scraping noise. I pulled the wheel off, found the issue and bent it a half inch back by hand, now its fine. Dunno how that ever got through quality control, though. And second the check engine light came on for the first 300 miles. It has gone off now, but if it comes on again I'm going straight to dealer. Its only the evaporative emissions control system - the gas fumes in the gas tank are possibly venting to atmosphere (more likely the sensor is broken) - so its not fatal anyway. (but still not acceptable in a new car, IMO)
But really, the value for money is out of this world. As long as you can live without the power accessories, this is definitely the car to buy.
