Nissan Micra (93-02)

Value

4 out of 5

Great value used ones around now - mine has depreciated a lot in 2 years though... swings and roundabouts, I suppose.

Costs

5 out of 5

Low insurance and tax, excellent fuel economy, no parts other than routine service items needed so far... pretty good I'd say!

Driving

4 out of 5

Goes well and stops well too - best brakes in class. Fairly refined on the open road. Good driving position.

Performance

5 out of 5

The 1-litre 16v engine is superb - the best thing about the car in fact. Pulls well even in high gears and can out-accelerate many rivals.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Nothing at all gone wrong in 2 years ownership. Everyone will tell you that the Micra is amongst the best for reliability.

Image is for morons only. Concentrate on the product itself.

Comfort

4 out of 5

This is the base 1-litre L model and features are sparse (e.g, no intermittent wipe), but that helps keep the weight down and there is less to go wrong! For a small economy car, there can be no complaints.

Security

3 out of 5

Not had any problems, despite no standard alarm/immobiliser. I use a Stoplock Pro and other visible deterrent and don't leave things on display.

Problems

Bodywork
Stone chips on bonnet - doubts about paintwork quality - even 'misses' on some areas, exposing primer.

None, though reverse selection can be awkward it is a 'feature' on this model.
