Nissan Almera Tino (00-05)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I don't want to keep up with the Jones'es and buy an over priced, common and unreliable German/French car.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Fantastic value.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes. It does everything I need and more, for half the price of a European equivalent.

What are you likely to buy next?
Another Nissan. That will be number 6!

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£2,500

When did you buy the car?
June 2011

Did you get a good deal and why?
He had it up for £4K (in superb condition and really low mileage) but got him down to £2.5K. I presume he wanted to get rid of it. His loss is my gain!

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
This is my fifth Nissan. In 15 years, none of them have broken down and I've only ever replaced things that wear (e.g. tyres, exhaust, battery). With a baby on the way the Tino was the sensible choice. Not expensive, not too big but with masses of storage and comfort. What more could I want?

What was the dealer like?
Excellent. Well presented vehicles and not you're usual Arthur Daley.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Comfortable and quite quick. Rolls a bit.

What's it like to park?
Good. Reversing camera useful, but mirrors are still the best.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Had to replace a bulb.

What's most practical about your car?
Loads of space, comfort, removable seats, cubby holes everhwere (under seats, etc).

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Removable seats.
