Nissan Almera Tino 1.8 SE 5d (2001/Y) - Owner Review

Great cabin, in fact the interior is the coolest thing about the car. It's quite quick when you put your foot down. At 90 it's doing about 4000 revs, and is totally comfortable at 100. Feels as if you're doing about 70. I've had smoother gearboxes

Nissan Almera Tino (00-05)

Value

4 out of 5

A lot of car for the money. Aircon, sunroof, build quality, reliability, comfort. The craziest thing is the secondhand value. I can't believe how little the car is worth after 3 years.

Costs

3 out of 5

Not cheap on petrol, but not over-expensive either

Performance

3 out of 5

It's no turbo diesel, but quite responsive

Reliability

5 out of 5

Even when I was 1000 miles late for the last service it has always started first time and been 100% reliable

I like the rear view alot, and quite like the front. What I don't like is the way the rear side window slopes up. That and the trim below door level makes it look a bit naff from certain angles

Comfort

4 out of 5

Lovely seats and classy interior. Worst feature is the hard armrest that sticks out from the door. I banged my elbow on it 2 years ago and it has never fully recovered (my elbow, that is). It should be padded, and less prominent!

Security

4 out of 5

Never had any problems

Service

5 out of 5

Unfailingly polite and human. The only negative is that one of the guys at Lookers in Hendon is a Chelsea supporter and they are top at the mo (I've always followed Arsenal)

Problems

Bodywork
none

Engine
none

Gearbox
not the best I've ever had

Other
Armrest, as mentioned above, and the other really annoying thing is the windscreen wipers are hinged the wrong side for RH drive cars, so the passenger gets a clear view in rain but the driver has to look through a watery residue the whole time!
