    Nissan Versa

    The Nissan Versa has always been an unabashedly inexpensive car, but a 2020 redesign at least adds a layer of visual pizzazz that makes it seem less spartan. In addition to the new look, the updated Versa also benefits from standard automatic emergency braking (AEB), but the brittle ride, vague steering, and uneven interior quality are disappointing—even for a budget car.

    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.
