We did it again! – A new car that is.

March 15, 2008

Well, we got rid of the Subaru today. Not that it was bad – just getting ready for $4 a gallon gasoline. We traded the Subaru Forrester for a Nissan Versa Hatchback. (Click any image for a larger version)

It was a clear sunny day and we spent most of it in a car dealership ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but the end result was happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

The Versa has been available in other countries for a while but quite new to the USA. It gets between 27 and 33 MPG and from the reviews I have read that is pretty accurate.

It is fun to drive and we got good financing for the 50th anniversary of Nissan.

Here is the last shot of the powerhouse 1.8 liter engine. The Versa we bought has the โ€œXtronicโ€ CVT Transmission and is VERY smooth.

Another happy thing about the Versa is that it is rated as one of the safest cars in it class – comes with air bags everywhere.ย  Five stars in everything!
