    Nissan Versa

    Nissan redesigned its entry-level Versa sedan for 2012, but not for the better. While the previous model was our top-rated subcompact sedan, the changes made to the new version have dropped it to the bottom of its category. On the positive side, this Versa gets much better fuel economy -- 32 mpg overall vs. 27 -- and it provides a roomy rear seat. But it's slow, noisy and handles clumsily.

    No Detailed Data Available

    Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

    A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

    There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.

    A delay in the application of the brake pedal would lengthen the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increase the risk of a crash.
