EDITORS NOTEBOOK: 2008 Nissan Versa Hatchback, Day 1

Read;Marc;Noordeloos’s;comments on driving the 2008 Nissan Versa Hatchback.

French. That’s what I think of when I drive the Nissan Versa. Big, comfy seats and a big-car feel in the ride quality. The rest is not so nice. The steering defines comical electric power steering and the small Nissan has that “I’m an economy car and a big dork” look going against it. Plus, I would have passed on the cost of the 6-speed box and put the money into the steering system. Also, the revs hang too long during shifts. Good seats though.
