How much does the 2018 Nissan Versa cost?
It seems like just a few short years ago when you could easily find a compact sedan from any automaker for less than $15,000. Now, everything is tilting upwards into the $20k range. It’s quite the jump, and not one that college students, commuters or those with a tight budget want to make.

Will our favorite automaker keep things the same? Today we’re looking at how much the 2018 Nissan Versa will cost as well as any new features. Read the rest of this entry »
2018 Nissan Pathfinder updates and changes

The Tama EV was developed in 1947, even though it wasn’t until late 2010 that the Leaf finally came out as the first mass-produced option. Read the rest of this entry »

Your needs are small. You want a pickup truck because the bed offers more versatility for large purchases, and you might want to tow once in a while.
